heaven or vegas

son: why is my cousin Diamond named like that
me: because your auntie loves diamonds
son: how did i get my name
me: enough questions, Heaven Or Las Vegas by Cocteau Twins


You keep calling from the jungle
Asking if we’re still good
After you left me back at Marvin’s
And parked your car on boardwalk

Now that your wicked games
brought you back to go
Where ya heading to?
Where do the good ones go?

I heard about a town
Where redemption’s given
Where echoes of silences listen
Where now and forever are always in sync
And diamonds dance on glass tables
Only sins remain faithful
It’s over the hills, right where I used to take you

I’ll stay from morning til dawn,
And as soon as I’m gone
Another host will have won
Damn girl, look what we’ve done
It’s always Heaven or Las Vegas,
We can never pick one

But we’ll keep up this one dance
Maybe we’re too good for romance
maybe we’re doing it wrong
maybe we’re the same old song

Hey guys, so I’ve decided to turn this fanfic into a route of the King’s basically. People seemed to want more (and heck, even I want more, because I’d love to romance the King!) so that’s why I’m turning this into a full blown multi-chaptered story.

Credits: This would not be happening if not for the help of some lovely ladies. First, I want to thank 01paige01. Most of the ideas from this second chapter come from her, so thank you my dear! :) Secondly, I want to thank smile-smile-ichthys. Her fic helped inspire me to tackle a full blown story because her fic, called The Journey of a Goddess, is just so amazing (you can find it on her masterpost by clicking here!!). Also I am borrowing a few of my plot points from her, so gotta give credit where it’s due ;) Thirdly, I would like to thank yamyyams for helping me come up with this title!! We spent a while brainstorming ideas that wouldn’t give too much away but would still fit my fic’s plot in some way XD Fourthly, I was partially inspired by the screenshots from Leon’s Dangerously in Love substory posted by hue-my-love​, so thank you for sharing those!! And FINALLY, I would like to thank all the readers and lovely commenters who gave me the drive to write more! You guys give me motivation to continue, so thank you! :)

Tagging: alleykatgotgames, the-spacebetween-us​, mycrzyobsessions​, mafiaprincesskiss​, xcoticallyxquizit​, voltageinclover101​ - I’m simply tagging you guys because I think you might like to know that I’m continuing this. Rest assured, I will NOT tag you again, unless you ask me to, because I don’t want anybody to feel obligated to read if they don’t like it.

Okay, phew, on to the second chapter! Enjoy~
