    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.

    Set during episode 1.13 Mike Royko's Revenge. I was wondering what would have happened if Ray had overheard Lilly Beauchamp's damning assessment of Teresa's life and personality ...

    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.

    Summary

    Everyone has been asking about jealousy. It's an interesting one because in my mind, if we got to the point that Carrie and Quinn were actually together – I don't think that they would have the kind of relationship where either would feel that much jealousy.

    I'm not sure if that makes any sense but my take on it is that they've been through so much shit to get to where they are that they are almost beyond petty jealousies.

    Maybe this is because I'm getting old … when I was younger, I found fictional jealous alpha males totally hot … these days, I find it hard to write it in a way that doesn't make the guy come off looking like an asshole with anger management issues and the woman coming off looking insecure … Anyway, this is my take on 'jealousy'. I know it's not as romantic as people would want it to be.

    Summary

    "Is there no line with you, Carrie? Is there no fucking line?"

    Set during 4.04 Iron in the Fire and 4.05 About A Boy. What if Quinn managed to convince Carrie that there is a line that shouldn't be crossed?

    Not strictly a series, but I like to think that my fic Destruction came first :)

    Summary

    frust_sheep sent me a prompt this morning:

    "I can't get the image out of my head, that Carrie will know (maybe because of Dar), when the Black Ops are back and that then she just waits for Quinn on the airport area or something and will watch as he leaves the airplane. He sees her then too and cannot believe, that she is there for him to clear (up) their misunderstandings or something."

    This is set almost directly after episode 4.12 A Long Time Coming, the season 4 finale.

    "What if Carrie was waiting for Quinn when he gets back from Syria?"

    Summary

    I received this fic prompt: "Request: an injured Quinn calls Carrie from Syria/Iraq/wherever his team escaped to", so it's become: "What if an injured Quinn called Carrie from Syria?"

    It's not really shippy sorry. Set post-4.12 when Quinn's on his black ops mission.

    Summary

    Hoping this doesn't get deleted like some of my other videos ...

    Video dedicated to Peter Quinn, our favourite CIA Black Ops guy with a heart of gold ... Spoilers all through season 4 and the violence and character death relates to Fara of course :'( Music is from Ender's Game ... I love this music and it seemed to fit perfectly ... I hope other people like it, too!
