    Summary

    *On hiatus for now but will return, I promise*

    My take on a series 7 for our faves, mostly focussed on Patsy's recovery after Hong Kong and everything that trip brings up. Multichapter, open-ended, though vaguely based around songs by the British Indie band Keane, hence the title, from their first album, 'Hopes and Fears'.

    Content Warnings and Songs provided with each chapter - but expect an emotional rollercoaster with Delia and the rest of the Nonnatuns being steadfast in their solidarity and helping Patsy grow.

    Summary

    A modern AU where Delia still goes home to Wales after her accident, but she and Patsy stay in contact, because... technology. Following their relationship as it progresses through her recovery via text and FaceTime etc.

    First few chapters are only really rated M for swearing and vague implied attraction, but later ones do get significantly more...intimate.

    Summary

    A canon-era AU where Patsy and Delia head back to Poplar in time to say goodbye to Barbara. Not an entry in my Song Shots series as it's three parts, but based on the song Echoes by Bo Bruce.

    (Note that Babs is very sick in this, but there's no actual scene of...well.)

    Summary

    Alternate Universe. When Newcastle never comes up, there's no big issue to put a stop to Tom and Trixie's engagement. Perhaps the smaller red flags are there, but our stubborn couple ignores them. And things don't go well from there.

    Tom and Trixie were never meant to be, but it takes them a lot of anger, grief, and heartbreak to realize that.

    Summary

    Fics as prompted on tumblr (of the same name as this AO3) for a variety of characters and ships from CtM. Some are imagined moments that could be canon, others are either potential future developments, or AU. As more prompted fics are added, this could yet go in other directions, so stay tuned! The rating may change as stories are added, so I'll likely just warn you at the start of a chapter if it's M.

    Summary

    "in union, there is strength."

    "pardon?"

    "en la unión, está la fuerza.' literally, it means: in union, there is strength.” ms crane says, nodding towards the poster barbara had been looking at. "it’s a spanish saying. in english, it's similar to something like 'there is strength in numbers."

    "oh," barbara reaches out to stroke the words on the poster with her pointer finger, "'in union, there is strength.' i like that."

    high school au.

    Summary

    *On hiatus for now but will return, I promise*

    A canon-compliant version of Series 7 for our favourite wonder women, starting off in Poplar with their reunion, and following them as they travel the world before ending up in Scotland. Inspired by the songs of the Irish band Snow Patrol, and an entirely separate universe to my other fics.

    Initial very brief angst but otherwise fluff (with feelings and realism).

    Pt 1 (Ch 1-14): Final Straw
    Pt 2 (Ch 15-29): Eyes Open
    Pt 3 (Ch 30-42): A Hundred Million Suns
    Pt 4 (Ch 43-55): Fallen Empires
    Pt 5 (Ch 56-65): Wildness
