    Bookmarker's Notes

    I think this was the first Charioteer fic I read- in fact, I read this before I read the book and liked it so much I went out and found the novel. Plotty with rich characterization that expands the novel beautifully, or holds up as its own work of fiction. Really good!

    Summary

    'Shaking himself a little, John methodically took off his new uniform jacket and then sat on the bed to remove his boots. New boots as well, issued on his return to Britain, stiff and tight and warm. Boots that had not marched or paced, boots that had none of the earth of Poland on them, boots without holes, without part of the laces removed for other projects.
    That part of his life was over.'

     

     Back in Britain following the escape, John is alone with the impossible questions.

    Summary

    Laurie's a junior Star Fleet pilot in the war against the Borg, he's crashed on one of the Hainish moons of the planet Winter, and he's pretty much buggered. Not in a good way either. Then he's picked up by Sandy Reid, Star Fleet Medical Officer, also not in a good way. Treated to some of the good meds, and dragged off to a Star Fleet queer party, he's having an eventful day, and war.

    Of course, in the meantime he's been presumed dead. So it's a bit of a surprise to his old school pash, Vulcan officer Ralph Lanyon, when he turns up onboard...

    Summary

    Modern or semi-modern AU.

    Two strands really - the song-fic-titled stories are (often) Legolas/Gimli centric, though not always, and take place now-ish, in a modern world where elves, men, dwarves, hobbits all co-exist. The -Glory titled stories are Glorfindel or Glorfindel/Erestor centric, and usually (no promises) involve a daring exploit (or two) as told by Our Hero, and perhaps some other stuff, as told by his listeners. Set in the same universe, they should all link up.

    Not written in chronological order, either of events, or the telling of events, though I will try to order the series so that it can be read through and make sense.

    In which Maddox is a little less saintly.

    *
    Note: ableist language, sex work references, homophobic language, sexual flagellation, speculation upon dubious consent, unequal power dynamics, sex between characters aged 19 and 43 respectively.

    *

    This is an alternate ending for this fic. It doesn't, as predicted, change anything very much.

    Summary

    September, 1946. An airman’s body washed up on a beach brings Lord Peter and Harriet to Barlock, Somerset. To Lord Peter, the dead pilot represents unfinished business. He is the latest in a series of deaths linked to “X”, a shadowy figure who uses his connections within Bridstow’s close-knit homosexual community to extort military intelligence from vulnerable men in high-level roles. A chance encounter with an old college acquaintance hands Harriet a loose end which may have the power to unravel all X’s intrigues.
