Ran over this plot bunny this morning when I woke up early to finish an essay that is due incredibly soon. It figures, the timing, doesn't it? But, I figure I may as well post it here to get things rolling. Here goes!
This bunny started running when I read an article about the marriage split between Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt on MSN Today (See here)
. In it, an 'insider to People' magazine writes:"They've changed in the years they've known each other. They live in a fishbowl. They spend so much time trying to figure out how to behave while everyone's looking that they gradually lost sight of themselves as individuals. And despite their nice lifestyle and having everything they might want, they weren't happy. They lost a sense of self."
This got me thinking about a V/O RPS in which Viggo and Orlando are finding it difficult to keep their relationship alive after their fame, as well as the media pressure, have changed them as people (not to mention the changing dynamics of their relationship). The news of Brad Pitt's pending divorce frightens Orlando and he finds himself examining his own relationship with Viggo as a result. Although they still have a deep love for each other, this fic would show the struggle that we assume V & O would be facing in "the fishbowl"
as the relationships of Orlando's co-stars (Dunst, Pitt) continue to crumble around them.So, basically...Bunny Summary:
Orlando begins to second guess the durability of his and Viggo's relationship after getting word of his friend, Brad Pitt's, broken marriage. Viggo and Orlando are forced to decide whether or not what they have together is worth fighting for.Genre:
I'm a fool for a happy ending, but this would definitely go under the Angst
category. How it ends it up to you.
So that's it. Hope this adds fuel to someone's Roadkillbunny fire! Thanks to tillie
for making this entry possible!
