Excerpt from that Madcap Crossover Fic:
For A Few Dollars More
“Manco” | The Man with No Name/Douglas Mortimer
After Agua Caliente, Mortimer rides North. Part of the South follows him.
For A Few Dollars More | Westworld
“Manco” | The Man with No Name/Douglas Mortimer
The ending is always the same, Mortimer rides off alone, but somehow Manco broke the cycle. Now they ride together on a path that even Manco isn’t sure off anymore.
So this is a bit of a strange mix, especially considering how little fanfics there are within this fandom, but this idea has been stuck in my head for awhile now and I can’t seem to stop thinking about it.
After five years in the North, Blondie feels time creeping up, numbering his days till inevitable disaster.
It’s nothing and everything but a feeling.

Hi everyone. Another Blondeyes story, and another story I’ve written about depression. For a long time now I’ve thought pretty seriously about writing about the uglier realities of depression– but I usually came to the conclusion that such a fic would ultimately be boring. The truth is that getting through depression is boring and tiring, sometimes. That’s a story that’s harder to take.
I’ve written more than a few depression or suicidal ideation stories too where characters in a supporting role are just that– supportive, understanding, and empathetic. But of course, sometimes when depression hits the people closest might be the least well equipped to support you. In that case the next best thing is someone who at least knows they’re going to be shite at it – and tries their best to find someone to learn from, listen, and not pass too much judgment in the meantime.
Anyways the ship that finally folded to these themes was Blondeyes because the world needs more icons of masculinity having a good depression cry.
Maybe I should say sorry I keep writing these? *throws up hands in exasperation @ self*
Thanks to @ave-ari for the title
In the Naa’in town of Tweechik, where many strange outcasts gathered, there lived two men of the West, a hunter and a killer. There are many stories of Tweechik about them, this is their last.
So you know how people say “kill your darlings” about writing? Wellllllll here we are. The completed Blair Witch/The Good, the Bad and the Ugly crossover that no one asked for.
It’s a night so cold that breath crystallizes even with roaring fires at both ends of the saloon. The wind is howling full tear outside, rattling against the wooden latch. It would be murder to try and shut the door. Not that there are many patrons, only a few shivering at tables and a man with an unlit cigar tapping his gloved fingers on the counter.

what would the ideal vacation for blondeyes be and/or what would they think it would be
this is a fucking excellent question thank you bec you are my hero.
man so in some ways I feel like the road north is sort of what Angel would have imagined a vacation of sorts to be like – or at least something like (who built) the road. I can imagine he was thinking like “let’s climb a mountain and have really dodgy sex in caves, maybe creep out a few townspeople and leave a fucking legend in our wake”. In any case they’d need something that keeps them busy but allows them a little bit of peace, but they’re bad at peace, so vacation doesn’t really suit them all that well. Also anything that allows for new and ridiculous sex scenarios is a plus. But I think Blondie has a bit of a panic if anything goes too well so he’s likely to do something to self-sabotage and Angel is likely to do something stupid for the aes, and you know. So maybe I’d say they should vacation with Sue and Cas (poor Sue and Cas, lol), or with the rest of polyfam.
Polyfam should go to Disney, I think – the one close to LA. That’s all I’m gonna say on that 😉
This might be better answered in a modern au setting….with Verdict Three vibes in the back of my mind I always imagined an ideal modern!Angel as thinking a skeevy Las Vegas vacation was the best possible thing, you might remember in the original Tallahassee au concept they drive down to a motel and actually have a cute time and makeout on the beach and are soooorta almost honest with each other for once. There’s a variant on that in the second act of Verdict Three, but it takes place in these cute little nowhere villages on the Gulf Islands off of Vancouver.
So imagine like, sweet small seaside town, little bullshit market that Blake absolutely hates, but obscure bookstore where Vin buys Blake the book like in (who built) the road. They still get to make out on a beach, but it’s a rocky thing with little tidepools where Vin remarks that barnacles have the largest penis-to-body ratios of any animal with a straight face, and Blake absolutely cannot fucking believe he is in love with this man, and yet, here we are – they almost have a moment where it all seems like it’s going to go well before the shit hits the fan the next day, anyways.
I gathered up three of my favourite ficlets from @bleak-nomads and posted it as a series, along with two more new ones 🙂
Is the Blondeyes tag searchable yet? Maybe.
