Fais Moi Près De Toi Place Dans Le Tombeau
Carlos/Posa fanfiction by Farfalla
based on the opera "Don Carlos" by Giuseppe Verdi
Yes, Prince Carlos really is that emo in the original French libretto. Take it up with Joseph Méry.
The title is taken from the French version of the opera, when Carlos sings
"Fill my heart with the divine flame, or put me beside you in the tomb"
to Rodrigo de Posa's corpse after King Philip II has him assassinated.
I would like to thank Saavant and Michele for proofreading,
as well as shatfat and my godson's father for their assistance.
Rating is PG-13.
Summary: They swore an oath to be united in life and death. Apparently, that included purgatory. Whatever happens, they’ll make sure of one thing--nobody’s going to separate Prince Carlos and Rodrigo de Posa ever again, not even God.
