So, martyr4mylove4u and I have been talking about this Godfather reboot for a very long time and I decided it was time to picspam it. Be warned, this is not meant to actually recreate the Godfather. This is a backdrop for our own retelling of it, one that revolves around Sonny and Connie and the narrative that never got told and it updates their story to give Connie more of a role. Most of the story is told in we're never gonna catch any daylight but to cap for those of you who haven't read it: Connie becomes more a part of the family than just a sister and wife and most of the story is about her coming of age, there's an incestuous affair and a lot of intrigue? Haha, come see what we did!
The best kept secret of the Corleone’s?
There isn’t one.
No one talks about anything. That doesn’t mean everything isn’t known.
[There is no picture for Mr. Pacino because his hair, as of late, has been awful. Sorry.]
His sister calls him up and she says “I shot a man.”
Sonny doesn’t ask questions beyond where.
This is his sister. This is how Sonny does things when it’s his sister.
“I don’t think I like good men,” she says and it’s like she wants to shout it out to the streets.
After. After everything. After everyone is dead, Michael will say, “I had a wife, before Kay.”
He will look out the window; take a sip of his drink, eyes dark—always so dark. Then he will make a mistake.
He raises his eyebrows, the quiet lines in his head turning upwards.
“You don’t want me to talk about your brother? Who the hell knows your brother as well as me?”
Fredo knows because he was there from the beginning, from before the beginning. Fredo knows because Connie shot a man for him and Sonny covered it up for her.
Fredo knows because he may be stupid for the Corleones but that still puts him far ahead of the curve, taking the rest of the world into account.
Sitting in the kitchen with a half eaten apple, she has no tears for her brother, she is a ghost herself and you know that it’s true, what they say –
The dead feel no pain. Nor can she.
