    Summary

    Have been rereading the Warrender series of Novels by Mary Burchell, now available on Kindle and then thought what would be the outcome if Nicola Marlow was discovered by Oscar Warrender. About a year later from Spring Term but continuing the singing storyline. Then the story ran away with me. Enjoy

    Summary

    From "Discovery (apple)", Wikipedia:
    The fruits are typically … small-medium in size, …and largely flushed with crimson … The tree is a mid-season flowering variety; …the fruits mature quickly, by August. Unlike many early apples, the fruits remain on the tree long enough to ensure ripening.
    Although most references state that this is an early producing tree, the best fruits can be harvested later in the year …. Excellent flavour, good eater and good cooker.
    Under good conditions the apples, when fresh, have a sweet, lightly acidic taste with a slight strawberry flavour. They generally have good keeping qualities.

    Summary

    Nicola never wanted to 'do' anything with her singing. She did want to go on an epic solo sailing trip.
    What if she needed to fund her sailing trip and someone suggested that she could earn money by singing? What if that someone was Jan Scott's brother Philip?

    (Not a new story; this was previously on my LJ.)

    Summary

    Comment fic that I wrote some time ago. Does what it says on the tin.

    Summary

    When Horace Rumpole first represented Alec Deacon, the latter was a newly minted registrar, up on charges arising out of a misunderstanding in the gentlemen's conveniences at Gloucester Green bus station, Oxford. Now he's Sir Alec Deacon F.R.C.S. and needs Rumpole's help again, this time on a charge of burglary ("No, Rumpole, that's not a spelling mistake in the charge sheet.")

    Rumpole's only hope of keeping his client out of gaol depends on finding a Will which may have been lost, stolen, impounded by the Samarkand branch of the KGB -- or simply never written in the first place. Fortunately, Patrick Merrick, his summer pupil, knows a girl who may be able to shed some light on the matter.

    Summary

    A sequel to 'A backward and dilapidated province', taking the form of a conversation between two marginally less (?) Bossy Types. This follows directly from Chapter 4 of that fic.

    Or, Nicola Marlow has reached That Difficult Age.

    *

    Content advisory: reference to attitudes linking homosexuality and paedophilia; use of a racial epithet (self-applied) which was considered acceptably polite in 1952, when the fic is set, but is no longer so; character expressing sexist views.
