Any Other World
Billy Boyd/Dominic Monaghan
Notes: This one's a bit weird, sorry. But it's been floating in my head for a while now and I hope it makes some shred of sense to anyone reading!
The first year is the hardest.
Billy Boyd wakes up one morning and his entire life has changed.
His life: wife, kid, dog, work when he chooses, play when he wants. It's a good life. He's got a best mate, he's got a sister he sees at least once a week with a brood of her own, he's got a girl by his side that he couldn't be fonder of and a little boy that's his entire heart.
It's the life he wants for himself. It's the life his parents would have wanted for him, too, he knows.
They're talking about having a second kid; a little girl would be lovely, Billy thinks, though Ali says she'd be fine with a playmate for Jack. Billy says they'll be playmates either way, and in the back of his mind he images Jack as the protective older brother.
It's a good life.
He doesn't have that life anymore. ( Read more...Collapse )
