The origin story of Goodnight Robicheaux and Billy Rocks

My Thoughts

So last week, The Collectress recommended a lovely story by VillaKulla about our mutual new ship: GoodBilly.

This week, I’m still on the bandwagon. Very, very much on the bandwagon. So much so that VillaKulla is also this week’s fanfic rec author. In this 3 chapter story (which is currently two-thirds of the way complete), VillaKulla explores a slightly alternate history in which Goodnight and Billy meet, become friends, and eventually deepen their relationship. Though some details differ from The Magnificent Seven, the characterization is so spot on that I completely forgot whatever meeting they mentioned in the movie. Honestly, I prefer this version anyway. It’s a slow burn thus far, but a beautiful one, and I’m eagerly awaiting the final chapter with bated breath.

Join us in the rabbit hole.
