On the writing front, there has been a small fic for the

[community profile] lewis_challenge , another episode in the Victorian Lewis and Hathaway vampire world and their attempts to catch up with the elusive Dracula. I’ve quite enjoyed creating this world and might carry on with it for another fic next year.

So that's me up till now. This entry was originally posted at https://margaret-r.dreamwidth.org/44679.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count:
19,412

Summary: Raedwolf and Beau, in mediaeval Oxfordshire, are assigned another special task. Study of Cowley's scroll at the Oxford priory has produced a possible lead to the holy grail or something equally wonderful. The pair set out for Glastonbury with Henry (Cowley's son) and his tutor. The adventure might take them to the Tor or under it. And there may be others interested in their destination.


Notes:
Thank you to ci5mates for the beta work, advice and being a sounding board for ideas and to loxleyprince for some brilliant artwork that has brought the story to life - this artwork must be viewed!!

Fic - A Mercenary's Tale

So, it was my turn for posting on the Pros Big Bang for 2012 today.  My story has now been posted and here are the details:

Title: A Mercenary’s Tale
Artist: bodiecuddle
Fandom: The Professionals

Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle, Bodie/OMC
Word count: 46,800
Warnings (highlight to read): Violence. OC Deaths

Summary: A midnight phone call, a mysterious visitor and Doyle’s persistence force Bodie to relive his mercenary past, bringing that past into the present. Over one long night Doyle listens to the tale Bodie has to tell and when he’s done it’s up to Doyle to try and stop his partner risking all in a headlong dash to revenge.

Notes: Thank you once again to moth2fic for her beta skills, her suggestions for improvements in the narrative (telling me where I was going wrong in other words) and for keeping me on track with grammar and punctuation as well as making some gorgeous icons for the story. Happy birthday Moth, have a good one:)  A big thank you and hug to my artist, bodiecuddle for such a stunning visualisation of my story. Thanks also to the Box of Tricks mods for again giving us another year of Pros goodness.
