Anybody , Moderated
This community (moderated 'though I use the term loosely by parenthesised and snow_queen_love) is your one stop shop for all things subtext-y and related to the First World War.

We encourage discussion of First World War poetry, drama and literature. Talk about the poems. Talk about the poets. And most importantly? Talk about the subtext. ;)

Special love goes to Pat Barker's 'Regeneration' series which brings together fictional characters and real people from history in three amazing books. We love Sassoon and Owen. We love Rivers. But most of all we love Prior. Post Prior fic, get a cookie. (Seriously, write Prior fic and I *will* send you cookie. Home made and everything...*waves them tantalisingly*)

We have fallen in the dreams the ever-living
Breathe on the tarnished mirror of the world,
And then smooth out with ivory hands and sigh.


(quoted by Owen at the start of 'The Show')

edit: in fact - talk about Prior at all and you will be showered in kisses, you will be married, you will have wonderful quotations flung at you. But for now - NO MORE WORDS!"

Prior is love
