    Summary

    As the new Duchess of Denver, Lady Peter (alias Harriet Vane) tells H. M. The Queen Mother about her changeable life and fate.
    A crossover from Dorothy Sayers' novels: "Strong Poison", "Gaudy Night", "Busman's honeymoon" to Jill Paton Walsh's novels: "Thrones and Dominations", "The Attenbury Emeralds". I highly admire the works of both the novelists, and am profoundly affected by Harriet Vane's lot.

    Pure fluff - about the year 1953.

    Summary

    This it the first part of a story I originally posted elsewhere as Pieces. That narrated events in chronological order. I decided to see if the story works better split into three connected sections not with every scene strictly chronological. If any reader has had the patience read the both versions, I would love to know which structure you prefer.
    In 1945, Dorothea's work at Bletchley Park has finished. She is wondering what happens next, but she isn't the only one.

    Summary

    "...Coppicing is a traditional method of woodland management which takes advantage of the fact that many trees make new growth from the stump or roots if cut down. In a coppiced wood, young tree stems are repeatedly cut down to near ground level. In subsequent growth years, many new shoots will emerge, and, after a number of years the coppiced tree, or stool, is ready to be harvested, and the cycle begins again..."

    Summary

    For once, Lord Peter Wimsey is at a loss. What on earth can a man buy his wife for Christmas that costs under a guinea? Harriet also has a one guinea budget for Peter's present, but she has had the good sense to ask for assistance from Miss Climpson. (And sometimes the best presents are the ones you make yourself.)

    Summary

    Talboys. Set late in World War II following Peter's death. Consistent with Sayers canon up to the end of the Wimsey Papers but going AU at some point after 1940. There is sex happening but no explicit revelations of the non-marriage bed. Warning for Helen.

    Credit for the "He's called Mervyn" line goes to Nineveh_uk, as does the subtitle "Helen made us do it".
