fic: Miss Havisham's Fancy

Title: Miss Havisham's Fancy
Fandom: Great Expectations
Length: 100
Content notes: no warnings apply
Characters: Miss Havisham, mentions of Pip and Estella
A/N: Written for the Fancy challenge at [community profile] fan_flashworks
Summary: A woman with a broken heart is entitled to her sick fancies.

A woman with a broken heart is entitled to her sick fancies. A rich woman with a broken heart can buy herself puppets and see her sick fancies played out before her.

He’s only a boy – as Estella says, a common labouring boy – but he’ll do. Estella will beggar him, and torment him, and break his heart. What else are hearts for, but to be broken? What else has she bred Estella for, but to break them?

Under the gaze of all her stopped clocks, amid the cobwebbed ruins of her long-ago wedding breakfast, she sits and watches, savagely content.

I thought this was lovely when I first read - and still do.

And congratulations on your latest badges. I had thought I'd caught up with you, but you've moved ahead again. Not that I'm competitive or anything ;)
