Constable Doyle's place of employment?

Still stumbling through my long story--what was the name of Doyle's Police Station?

Thank you!

If not, what would be a logical one for her?

Summary: Trust is the beginning and the end



Back to the lodge, they packed; meaning, Cowley repacked his suitcase, the one he had had the good fortune to find, forgotten in his car trunk, when he had decided, on the spur of the moment, to take Bodie with him and drive to Scotland. Bodie, who had left Africa naked (barring a loincloth), had nothing of his own, if one excepts the second-hand suit and shirt he had been given by a nice soul in the military hospital. They came from a charity shop and it showed. Cowley eyed them critically.


Leave these rags here and take some of those old clothes of Angus’ you've been wearing the last couple of weeks; they're your size, and in much better condition. Only sportswear though; we’ll make sure we buy more suitable ones in London.”


Bodie bristled. “I don't want to be still more in debt with you or Angus. Not joking now; your hosting me at your place is good enough, thanks.”



You won't have much choice in that respect, I'm afraid,” Cowley stated, “You must look respectable to present yourself to the authorities.” He shrugged: “As for these relics, Angus leaves them here for occasional guests from his fishing club, in case they'd need a change. Otherwise, he's no use for them and they're not Bart's size.” (Neither mine, he thought sourly; it has never felt good to be the short and scrawny one in a family of tall and strong men).


Bodie didn't insist but promised: “I will repay you as soon as possible.”

I won't add an epilogue; it would too easily turn into a sequel and I don't feel ready for that now.

Mister Cowley thinks it's to quiet here ...

... and he ordered me to do something about it. And I did

It's not the epilogue yet but it's approaching, thanks to Angus.

Summary: Planning


Cowley's predictions had not been disproved. Martha's fish pie was huge, gorgeous to see and mouth-wateringly odoriferous. Must have been scrumptious too for Bodie refilled his plate three times.

Maybe you should have used all the fish,“ Bart said gruffly. He was seated at the table with the guests while his wife was serving.

I fished it” Bodie protested, “and I helped in the kitchen.”

I take it as a compliment for the cook, “ Martha commented serenely.

Cowley seconded her: “Bodie's a big boy; still growing!”

Save a little room for the cake,” Angus advised. And he helped himself a second serving.

Bodie and Doyle mentioned

I like it when Bodie and Doyle are mentioned in modern series or films!  :-)

Yesterday it was Doc Martin S 4 E 8 - The Wrong Goodbye.
(at about 16:00)

Together with Butch and Sundance. The dynamic duo. :-)

Can anybody tell me who the third couple is?



I'm not sure it will be the epilogue but, surely, it leads to it. I guess the ending calls for a sequel but I don't feel able to write it, at least not in time for the Big Bang. I need a rest. My next attempt will probably be a much shorter story. I cannot express enough how much I am relieved this plight is coming to an end, at last.

Summary: There are no problems; there are solutions!





The next day the weather was favourable and they had their long-awaited fishing party. They started early. Cowley drove the boat to that part of the loch where he knew the catch could be abundant. The wide expanse of water was shining a deep ultramarine blue under a glorious cloudless sky. Bodie seemed to enjoy himself immensely and Cowley enjoyed watching Bodie enjoying himself. Forgetting to watch his own line, he couldn't help staring at the man in front of him, who stood very upright between the water and the sky line with a silver fish wriggling in his raised hand, proud and laughing like a child. As he was thus erect, half-drenched and bathed in the morning light, tall, and strong, and bright, he was stunning. Cowley swallowed dry. Suddenly the weight of his promise to Bodie overwhelmed him. Ahead of the road, he saw days, weeks (he refused to think months) of forced cohabitation with the man who meant the greatest temptation and the worst danger he had ever met. God help me, what am I to do?

Does Bodie eat caviar?

This is my question for a fic--and I'd prefer if he didn't like it, but can't recall if it ever comes up in the series.

Thanks!

Rainlets (the lads) in London

The Rainlets went to London and they had a lot of fun.

MondayCollapse )

Then they had fun at Waterlow Park in Highgate.

And yesterday they discovered the crisp bag.

The last day they relaxed in Hyde Park.

Summary: Mutual understanding, maybe?



This is eventually the end; the story is virtually finished; there will be an epilogue but it will not bring anything new. This chapter has been published on AO3 and ffnet. So, all potential readers who only read complete stories can now get it on either of these sites.

Later, at night, they were sitting in front of the fireplace, watching the merry dance of flames in the hearth. Leaping and hopping desultorily through the intertwined dried twigs disposed over the logs, they created in the dim space a vivid show of strange moving forms and reddish glowing shades. The scent of burning heather and fern filled the room, bringing with it memories of so many faces and voices of days gone by.

Am I really free?” Bodie asked abruptly, drawing Cowley from his reverie.

You are,” he asserted, with more certainty than he felt.

Can I leave?”

Do you want to?”

Not before we had our fishing party!”

Good! Now I recognize my Bodie.”

The near-endearment, which had surprised himself as he uttered it, was lost on the young man.

There should have been a sequel but I don't feel up to it now.

Looking for alternate expression

Looking for and expression that is roughly the same as "the almighty buck"

googling it got some very weird sites so I am asking the better than google crowd.

Thanks :)

Summary: a little gambling


They drank, and the content of the bottle decreased fast, along with the waning light around them, while Cowley narrated a heavily sanitised version of the last two weeks' chronicle. Thinking back to it later, he was quite pleased with his creative adaptation. He had, of course, skipped most of the embarrassing episode of his accident in the woods and especially of its aftermath, glossed over the details of the odd “cure” done by Angus, carefully ignored the fights they had got through on the hills and ascribed the cause of the “incident on the boat” to the dog's exuberance. He shamelessly blamed the poor animal, bearing in mind that, if he could likely be confident in the canine witness' dumb cooperation, he had not the same certainty regarding Angus' silence.

Bodie listened to it attentively, not interrupting, not commenting much. All his scarce and fragmented memories were, it seemed, related to pleasant, harmless and not very significant events of their shared time in and around the lodge. Unconsciously (or was it willingly?) he had chosen to retain only the lighter and brighter sides of his Scottish sojourn. To Cowley's utter relief, even the hours that had elapsed since he had first regained consciousness on the small beach shortly before boarding, to his second awakening at some point in the night, remained, thankfully, either wrapped in mist or deeply sunk in a pit of oblivion (at which point the latter had occurred was still a source of worry though).

Meanwhile, there was a part of the story that couldn't be omitted, abridged or altered: the MI6 expedition. Cowley's report was accurate and thorough, barring its conclusion.

Anybody want to play?

Finish this "quote" referring to Pros in some way (meme originally done by some clever person on tumbler in 2016): I didn't chose the fandom life, the fandom life (fill in the blanks). I also posted this challenge over on an S&H group.

Examples: NOT MINE!!!
Doctor Who: I didn’t choose the fandom life, the fandom, life grabbed my hand and whispered ‘run’.

Sherlock: I didn’t choose the fandom life, the fandom life sent me a text “Come at once if convenient. If inconvenient, come anyway.”

Etc. etc. Anybody want to play?

Mine: I didn't chose the fandom life, the fandom life took hold of me when I held up the key while looking over at Bodie, who rolled his eyes and said, "Stick it in."
