the present and the distance [master post.]


Title: The Present and the Distance
Author: [info]behindthec
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Panic: Ryden-heavy, hints of everyone, eventual GSF, a bit of Brendon/Shane
Word Count: ~153,000
Warnings: Minor character death, violence, angst. Also, angst. Did I mention ANGST.
Disclaimer: They belong to Pete  each other  the island  themselves, not me. Fiction, I hope to god.  Any similarities to Lost are incidental, as I have never seen the show.
Summary: There is no way to summarize this that doesn't sound ridiculous, so I leave you with my original cheesy!blurb(tm): There are 17,508 islands in Indonesia, about 6,000 of which are inhabited. On August 31, 2008, returning from an Australian tour in the middle of the year's most violent storm to date, a plane carrying Panic at the Disco loses power, veers off course, and crashes into one of the remaining 11,508 islands. This is their story.

Dude. This has got to be the best fanfiction that I have ever read! It has everything, everything. I cannot wait for Chapter Four.
Aug. 23rd, 2008 08:24 pm (UTC)
yay! thank you so much! :) i've got the opening flashback for chapter 4, so we'll see...

I've been considering posting to beg and plead for the posting of Chapter 5, but it seems like that would be an exercise in futility...

So I shall beg and plead for friending instead. *g*
Sep. 7th, 2008 08:54 pm (UTC)
sorry, sorry, i am getting started on it this evening. i've had a lot to do at work and then i took a break to write a random spyro (ryan/spence) and my internet's been down at home, ughhhh. but yeah. i'm gettin' to it. :) yay friending!

i was bawling by the first chapter. lawlz

this is indeed amazingly epic.
it is honestly THE.BEST. fic i've read. ever.

Sep. 18th, 2008 12:45 am (UTC)
eee, thank you so much! i'm so glad you're enjoying it. :D
Oct. 4th, 2008 10:42 am (UTC)
Arrgghh, last night just before I was about to turn off my laptop I found this fic and I thought 'Huh? Sounds interesting' so I read the prologue. And then the first Chapter. By the time I had reached Chapter 7 it was 4 in the morning and I had cried and laughed so much I felt almost like an emotional wreck.
I have to agree with everyone that this is an EPIC read. I can't wait for the next chapter, even if I do have to read it at some god-forsaken time in the morning. :D
Oct. 4th, 2008 09:58 pm (UTC)
ooooh, i always love to hear people's reactions when they sit down to read it in one sitting. :D thank you so much! i'm so glad you're enjoying it.
Oct. 8th, 2008 01:59 pm (UTC)
Just so you know, this is AMAZING. a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Seriously. Pure awesomeness.
To start it off, Konstantine. Just for that, I love you. A lot. :)

I discovered this some time last night just before I had to go to bed (how typical), but I only had time to read the prologue and the first chapter. Since I had to get to Uni extra early to find a parking spot (it's really crazy these days), I woke up this morning and thought I'd have time to read some (if not all) of it before my first class.
So I just printed the rest off (I hope you don't mind) and took it with me. I parked and sat there in my car with the papers propped up against the wheel. Which in turn made me late for class. lol

Not that I minded and not that it wasn't worth it! Because it totally was!! I can't wait for more. :D
Oct. 8th, 2008 04:58 pm (UTC)
hahahaah that's awesome! fic has made me late for class before too. XD we're special. i'm so glad you're enjoying it! keep reading, it gets better. :)

i'm not sure if i'm allowed to write on here, but you know everyone else is so fuck it, i am too. plus, what i am about to say is just so freaking irritating that it could only happen to me so i have to share it with you:


okay, so i totally came on here to check if you had chapter twelve up yet, because i miss pwf a lot. no i'm totally not obsessed, what made you think that? and my SLUT of a computer is such a fucking TEASE and it kind of made it look like the "chapter twelve" selection on the chapter list was click-able (lol me and my technical lingo-speak. i fail miserably at life) and i like freaked and was all "WEEE! LIFE IS WONDERFUL AND FULL OF HAPPINESS AND JOY!" and then i realized that i am a moron and it wasn't, in fact, clickable. my computer is just a fucking WHORE and decided to play tricks on my eyes and give the ILLUSION that chapter twelve was clickable.

so now i am depressed. and sniffly and cold. because i'm still sick.

my. life. is. such. a. joke.

brb gotta go be emo!bilvy.

dude, listen. if you got an LJ you could add me as a friend and then you'd always know when i update. you're doing this the hard way. ;)

I ran across this completely by accident on Saturday and have spent the last two days glued to my computer whenever possible to catch up. You guys have stolen my heart! This is so beautiful in so many ways I can not even try to explain.

The parts the broke me the most (other than the deaths... cause OMG TOM! OMG SHANE!) (Seriously though, watching Jon not being able to except that Tom was dying was tormenting) was the dance/text message moments between Brendon and Ryan. I mean, Ryan Ross you unbelievable tease! They were gorgeous and precious and so real in those moments.

This is so full of epic awesome that I can't even name it all. InLove!BrendonandRyan though is bound to be squishy and adorable. Though I am kinda waiting for the "Shane killed himself for me" freak out from Brendon. Though, maybe it won't come... hopefully... but it could and it makes me nervous.

Okay, I have to do work stuff now, but seriously you guys, it's awesome. Thank you!
Nov. 17th, 2008 02:30 pm (UTC)
awww, thank you so much! i'm so glad you're enjoying it. the text messaging is definitely one of my favourite bits too. :)

hmmm, i can maybe see brendon having a freak out at one point... i hadn't planned on it, but yeah, that could be a good idea.
Nov. 23rd, 2008 09:23 pm (UTC)
i srsly love the new banner and everything, but.
i worked hard on the first one.

This is the most amazing-fantastic-EPIC Ryden story ever. I love it. I love you. Will you marry me?

Or better yet, update soon? Because that is not fair. I read through it all nonstop & I leave off on Chp. 13! I need more. =[

You are awesome. <3
Dec. 8th, 2008 12:34 pm (UTC)

so i've been lurking lj slash for i guess about a year now, and never found the need to get my own lj, until last week when i started reading this and it convinced me that i should so i could tell you how COMPLETELY AMAZING it is and that it's one of the most beautifully written things i've ever read in my life.

impatient? who, me? :PP
Jan. 16th, 2009 01:53 pm (UTC)
it will be linked in the epilogue, bb. no worries, you're on there. ;)
Jan. 17th, 2009 04:32 am (UTC)
are you going to post all the pwf other codas that the readers wrote for you on this masterlist?
Jan. 17th, 2009 02:07 pm (UTC)
prolly not; the comm itself is linked, so i figure ppl can just get to them from there...
Jan. 20th, 2009 09:50 pm (UTC)
Okay so basically I feel horrible for still not having the time to read this. But I totally will because this is awesome and I don't even haven to read it to know that.
BUT. I feel better now that you've finished it because when I start reading and enjoying it (which i totally will. again.) I won't have to wait for an update. And I'm really happy about that.
See you soon.
Jan. 20th, 2009 10:39 pm (UTC)
that's okay! i so hope you enjoy it once you start. :)
Jan. 20th, 2009 10:29 pm (UTC)
Oh, wow. I'm so excited that this is done! I'll be setting aside a big chunk of time to ctach up on the parts I've missed.

I've just realised that I'm officially dense. I haven't read this yet, that's because I've been saving up decent fics to print out and take to read on my flight to Australia. Now, I'm pretty sure reading a fic about a plane crash on a flight is a bad idea :\

Oh well, great excuse to take a few hours off this weekend.

Umm, ok, this is a bit my little sister was studying Obama's inauguration speech in school the other day and they were told to do something 'fun' with it for homework. In the end she typed it into Wordle and made a funky poster with it...and this got me thinking what PWF would look like in Wordle format (my mind manages to link everything to PWF)

So, I made a PWF Wordle, and I thought that I would, ummm, share? (sorry, I can't do snazzy HTML stuff) :D
Feb. 20th, 2009 02:06 am (UTC)
haha wow! that is really funky! thanks for sharing!
