    Summary

    Carrie had taken his hesitation in stride. She had written Maggie and Bill’s address down on a sheet of notepaper and left it on the kitchen counter, next to his wallet and car keys. He hadn’t told her that he remembered it - that he knew their address from the last time, where he had pushed Carrie into his truck, intent on more than just a kiss. He liked the gesture anyway - the way that she wanted to take care of him, the way she made room for him in her life.

    Summary

    CHAPTER 17 is new!

    Quinn’s parents make an unwelcome reappearance, making Quinn question his new life and relationships.

     

    Quinn saw Audrey coming out of the kitchen, her face pale and her eyes wide open, following another person who he couldn't believe was here.

    "Quinn. Quinn. I- God, you grew a lot. Your father-"

    For a moment, he just froze, shocked and horrified.

    She kept talking but he didn't hear her words. She touched his arm and he pushed her away, fast and hard, against the small table in the hallway, the set of keys which he’d placed there a minute ago jumped when her back hit the table.

    Away. Just away.

    To avoid this year's Christmas dinner with Maggie and the family, Carrie takes refuge at the agency, presuming no-one else will be around.

    She's mistaken...

    Summary

    Maybe she hadn’t bought him anything, or maybe she got him something painfully practical - like a series of Henleys in carefully chosen neutrals, or a pair of new shoes, or Changing Careers for Dummies, 3rd ed.

    Summary

    Albeit what the warning and tags say - this is a story about love and life, friendship, forgiveness and hope. It's sad but I wrote it with lots of love.

    Four years after finding each other again in New York, Carrie and Quinn live as a family in a happy and loving relationship. And then one morning everything changes.

    Summary

    What if our fave couple had met loooong before New Car Smell? In this universe, timings of key events in their lives vary from canon, other scenes from canon are reimagined or re-examined in light of their different backstory.

    And, there is no CF S5! Let’s forget it ever happened!

    Summary

    Domestic scenes set in the same AU as Two of a Kind, ie still no CF S5. In fact, these scenes take place after the eventual happy ending of Two of a Kind. And in every scene, someone utters our heroes' favourite curse word ;-)

    Summary

    Hong Kong 1992: Frank Mathison meets a strange teenage boy and invites him for dinner with his daughters.

    The backstory Dar gave us in 5.12 really messed me up and I had to do something about that. Quinn deserved better.

    So...what if our two favourite characters had met long before 2.04? In Hong Kong?

     

    NEW: After finishing this fic, I wrote a sequel named 'After Hong Kong' (creative title, I know) and tied the two fics into one series

    Summary

    This starts right after 5.5 (I saw the trailer for 5.6, but the episode wasn't released back then). Quinn had recovered under Hussein's care and offered Dar to go back to Syria with the jihadists. Six months later, his life takes an unfortunate turn again.
    He has to rely on Carrie to save him.

    The story tells their journey over the next couple of months, using some material from canon, but mostly non-canon.

    Summary

    Begins mid-Season 3 and assumes mostly canon except Carrie & Quinn begin having sex early on. It's primarily additional scenes and a few alternate scene endings. The comedy kicks in by Ch. 3. I will attempt to post a chapter every day or two.

    Summary

    Set in a universe that intersects that of The Motherf♥cker Chronicles, ie some common elements. CQ are out of the agency and cohabiting.

    Canon backstory - only to S4 mind, still no CF S5 in sight!

    And no chocolate chip cookies either ;-)

    Summary

    Quinn is gone on a mission, and Carrie has to go on without him. What happens next? Who does she meet, and how does she move on with her life? Does she ever see Quinn again, and if she does, then what? Rated M for swearing, mature situations and smut.

    A “Carrie/Quinn Challenge: 2½ years later” fic, which was indeed a challenge for me. Thanks, kbear, you kept me from giving up.
