AUTHOR: mistressmarilyn
DATE: August 15, 2009-July 22, 2010
FANDOM: Public Enemies (2009)
PAIRING: Melvin Purvis / John Dillinger / J. Edgar Hoover (Christian Bale, Johnny Depp and Billy Crudup)
DISCLAIMER: I don't own 'em. They're characters belonging to Bryan Burroughs, Michael Mann and Universal Studios, not to mention the respective actors of the movie, and to the ages. This is a work of a fan, done for no remuneration save the satisfaction of the work.
WARNINGS/RATING: Slash
SUMMARY: Melvin Purvis lets something--or someone--come between his close alliance with Bureau of Investigation Director J. Edgar Hoover.
WORD COUNT: 7,500
AUTHOR NOTES: In 'Public Enemies' Michael Mann fictionalized history, changing the chronology of events, even important ones. This, too, is fiction, speculative fiction based on actual events. And, yes, ultimately this is set in Mann's universe. No disrespect is intended toward Purvis or his remaining surviving son. This story was finally finished on the 76th anniversary of John Dillinger's death.

"Their relationship would be disrupted by a third man--a man who, so many decades later, remains linked to each of them. In this story of three men, the events of March 3, 1934, play a crucial role. What happened that day--what strange, improbable thing happened when a gun crudely carved from wood--set in motion the sweeping drama that would doom the delicate friendship between the director and one of his most loyal charges."
--Alston Purvis, 'The Vendetta'

You know, after watching this film; I cannot help but wonder how John Dillinger felt about Parker-Barrow Gang.

I couldn't let October 24, 2009 pass from memory without remembering Melvin's birthday!




Melvin Horace Purvis

October 24, 1903-February 29, 1960
 
 
Title: "The Haunting of Melvin Purvis" -- Part One: "Finding Melrose House"
Author: CharlieMC
Date: October 26, 2009
Word count: 2,571
Written for the guns_fedoras Halloween challenge -- Option 2 ("Use traditional Halloween elements but your story... doesn't take place on Halloween...")
Author notes: I had a "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" idea in mind (the 1945 novel written by R. A. Dick), but apparently it would take a longer story to go there. Anyway, that and the 1947 Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison movie was my inspiration for this tale. (I'd like to write more and make this the first chapter of a series...)

It was hard to say why he didn't move on after the violence and blood of July 22, 1934.Collapse )

I just got an email from CD Universe that Public Enemies will be available on December 8!

I can't seem to confirm this anywhere . . . so maybe it's a false lead . . . but they've got to announce it soon if it's coming out before Christmas, and this would be just a week after Terminator: Salvation, which seems fitting.

I'm crossing my fingers!

(ahhh . . . it says the 'Special Edition' will include a digital copy . . . hopefully it will also include the deleted scenes!)
