I decided that we ought to have a list of bookverse fic links on this community. All of the following fics are either clearly bookverse (as in, they refer to things that were in the book but not the film) or could be either bookverse or filmverse (as in, they refer to things that were in both and not to things that were only in the film). I consider all of them to be well-written.
As this is a short list, they aren't in any order; if people contribute links to their favorite bookverse fics, I can add them and put them in some sort of order if the list gets long enough. :) Italics mean that the note is mine and not a note from the original author.
Title: Inconvenient Truths
Summary: Rhett's answer to the question: what's crazier than fighting "barefoot in the snow at Franklin?"Pairing: Scarlett/Rhett
Note: Extended S/R flashback, involving the referenced-but-not-seen incident from the book where they go picking flowers. Lorie945 really nails the dialogue. I highly recommend this one.[Link]
Title: "'Twas a victory, yes; but it cost us dear"
Summary: Ashley Wilkes, Rhett Butler, and their war. Note: Alternating points of view between Ashley and Rhett. The section entitled "Bonnie Blue" makes me want to cry[Link]
Title: Last Shot
Author: Roz McClure
Summary: Brent and Stuart Tarleton: before, during, and after the war. [Link]
Title: Other Shoes
Summary: After the war, Melanie considers the patterns of her life on a cold autumn evening in Atlanta. [Link]
Title: "Something of Grace and Beauty"
Summary: After Rhett leaves Scarlett, he finds himself back on the road between Tara and Twelve Oaks. There he meets the one man he thought he had nothing in common with. Note: Writing Ashley as gay is something that can be hard to pull off without going for "sensitive-man-must-be-gay" stereotypes, but this fic does it. It's about a heck of a lot more than "Ashley is gay", though. I highly recommend this one.[Link]
Title: All Honor's Wounds
Summary: "It was on a wild wet night in April that Tony Fontaine rode in from Jonesboro on a lathered horse that was half dead from exhaustion and came knocking at their door ... " Ashley's mind races as he prepares to go with Tony.[Link]
Title: Loved I Not Honor
Summary: Missing scene. Rhett meets Melanie for the first time after she and Ashley return to Atlanta. Note: Excellent characterization of Melanie. I highly recommend this one.[Link]
Title: A Brazen Combination
Summary: Separately they could be endured, but the brazen combination of Scarlett and Rhett was too much to be borne. A fanciful take on the Butlers' reception and its aftermath.Note: This isn't the most intellectual of comments, but this fic is really, really hot. Do you have Rhett fantasies? Read this fic. I highly recommend this one.[Link]
Title: The Next Morning
Summary: What should have happened on the morning after. You know, after that night. Yes. That one. Note: Alternate universe - if Scarlett and Rhett had spoken to each other the morning after.[Link]
Title: Five Things That Never Happened to Ashley Wilkes
Summary: Rhett Butler has an offer for Ashley he can't refuse. Will Ashley explore his darker side or will honor prevail?Pairing: Rhett/Ashley
Note: Before I read this fic, I thought Rhett/Ashley was about the worst idea for a GWTW pairing ever. The stupidest, the most unrealistic, the most likely to be written for pure shock value and nothing else. This fic convinced me that although it's a hard pairing to pull off, it can be done. Unfortunately, the fic is incomplete, with only four of the five things. I highly recommend this one.[Link]
