Scene opens with Ezra waking up in a seedy room, Maude sitting by his side. He's feeling ill and feverish. He has no idea what's going on, or where he is. He realizes Maude looks years older than he remembers her. He questions her and she's quite impatient, having explained this many times before after one of his 'spells', and having dealt with his fantasies about Immortals. He asks for Charlotte and Maude tells him she was murdered along with her abolitionist fiance when Ezra was 18. Everything he thinks he remembers about his life doesn't exist.
Can't get the idea out of my head! I did an alternate life fic in my Bloodties series a few years back, and I do love the concept. BAH!! I hate it when i get these ephemeral story ideas when I'm half awake, half asleep. There always the ones that linger and that I can't get out of my head.
