    Summary

    The season 5 rumours coming out of PaleyFest 2015 were a little disheartening for those of us who are Carrie/Quinn shippers. So this video was my panacea for the Sinking Ship Blues, because: "I will go down with this ship ..."

    For any other fans trying to shake off the Sinking Ship Blues, please participate in the Carrie/Quinn Challenge: "2½ Years Later". Yes we're a tiny fandom but we're passionate :)

    One of the things that really gets me about this movie is how brave Rita is every time she dies and how you can see each death genuinely affecting William Cage - getting past his initial selfishness ...

    Summary

    RPF but with fictional characters :D Ha. OK so I guess it's not real RPF but what I mean is it's not about the characters themselves, it could be about any two actors who play the parts of Kim and Chris. Unbeta'd scribble after listening too much Miss Saigon. My cheat for how to give Miss Saigon the Happy Ending I know it can never have.

    Summary

    Just a little piece speculating about how things might have gone for Tam. I've read a lot of sad stories about the children of Vietnamese women and American GIs (http://www.smithsonianmag.com/people-places/children-of-the-vietnam-war-131207347/?all) but I like to think that Chris and Ellen tried to give Tam a good life - and loved him.

    Summary

    This popped into my head this morning and wouldn't go away. It's set way, way into the future - Carrie and Quinn have had a long and happy life together and on the day of Quinn's funeral, John Jr. shows up ... I wondered what a conversation between Franny and John would look like.

    Summary

    Inspired after I wrote a response to the Domesticity Meme. Carrie and Quinn have such crazy lives that it's hard to imagine them being together in every day normal life but hey … let's see how I go … I find the mundane very romantic sometimes ...

    These are plotless glimpses into mundane moments of Carrie/Quinn's life together in some fluffy, non-canon future untampered by evil writers... :)

    If you are enjoying these, SourCherryBlossom is also writing prompts from the meme. Her fics are here.

    Summary

    I was curious about how in season 3, Quinn’s suddenly part of Saul’s team. This is set just after my Galvez fic A Member of the Team” and is a series of missing scenes between season 2 and season 3. Not very shippy sorry.

    Summary

    Set during 4.05 About A Boy

    I wondered about why Carrie was crying. I know she wasn't thinking about Quinn, but was she thinking about Brody? Was she feeling guilt?

    Extremely non-shippy sorry ...

    Summary

    Various takes by me on Quinn's letter - and the lead-up and aftermath.

    Note - this isn't a story with sequential chapters as such. Each chapter's just a different take/guess of circumstances relating to the letter. If any of these 'prompts' strikes your fancy, please feel free to go nuts and write a full fic/story based on it ...

    Summary

    Really just lots of images of Carrie and Quinn looking pensive or sad ... :)

    Song is by Vienna Teng.

    "I am a constant satellite
    Of your blazing sun, my love
    I obey your law of gravity
    This is the fate you've carved on me
    The law of gravity
    This is the fate you've carved on me."

    Summary

    Kate's fic made me think about this issue more and so this is my take on the weird Carrie comment to Quinn about him pocket-dialling her. Also my attempt to fill in part of the time Quinn was in Islamabad when Carrie was in Kabul.

    These two spend a lot of time on the phone.

    Summary

    Set during episode 4.04 Iron in the Fire. This was prompted by this quote about Quinn:

     

    Whenever [Quinn]’s on screen all I see is terrible loneliness. Sure everyone needs him because he’s great at what he does, but nobody cares that they’re destroying a human being who is apparently not a horrible person but a relatively sincere man. It’s tough to watch IMO, so the show must be doing a good job. He’s been keeping Carrie alive for a while now, but she doesn’t “see” it. She doesn’t “see” much; she’s a disturbingly single focus character, which is why she can be so fascinating and irritating at the same time.

    Summary

    "What if Khan had contacted Quinn after his men picked up Carrie?"

     

    In 4.07 Redux and 4.08 Halfway to a Donut, Carrie was obviously unwell and needed medical treatment. Why didn't Khan take her to the hospital or back to the embassy for treatment? She could have died without medical treatment so just taking her back to his place seems like a bad idea. I realise that he probably didn't feel right driving up to the doors of the embassy but he could have called someone…

    After that, I'm not sure where she ended up getting medical treatment. Shifa International Hospitals on Pitras Bukhari Road is 20 minutes away from the embassy but the episode really made it look as though the embassy might have its own hospital or at least its own clinic within its walls. After the shooting, I saw people in medical scrubs in the halls and also the way Carrie was talking to Quinn – it looked as though they were at the embassy and she was telling him to get Lockhart to meet them in the secure room at the embassy itself. Images here.
