    Summary

    “I sometimes feel as if we’re ghosts—half with each other, but mostly without. I think it would be easier to do what everyone’s so bloody insistent on and get married, and just accept that... you and I can never be.” In 1960, Delia Busby could no longer bear having a secret lover. She leaves Patsy at The Silver Buckle that cold night and marries a man three months later. The day of the wedding, Patsy accepts a job in Bristol and runs away, never looking back and never forgiving herself for not having the courage to fight for love.

    Fifty years later, Patsy and Delia reconnect through a website called Facebook.

    Inspired by the show Last Tango in Halifax.

    Summary

    Detective Constable Mount has often read that there are people in this world with easy lives; she is beginning to realise that she is not one of them.

    There’s an arsonist in town playing with matches. With one body already going crispy it’s up to her to figure it all out while wrestling her own demons. And God knows she’s got enough of them to fill a very large book.

    In the meantime Seppie wants a dog, Ferns being a teenager, Trixies divorcing Tom, Helens marrying Phyllis and at some point Patsy really needs to pin Delia down for a chat.

    Eh. Life. It’s complicated.

    Also: this is part 2 in the series so if you want to know what the hells going on I’d suggest reading part 1 old tides.

    Aged fourteen, she was abducted, subjected to a myriad of unexplained experiments and now she no longer knows her own name. Patsy has no idea what's about to happen, how her life will change, drastically, for the second time.

    Neither does Delia. She thought she would be a nurse, fix people up and send them on their way but that can never happen, now.

    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 1962, after her fathers death, London socialite and self proclaimed writer and artist, Patience Mount, decides she need a break from it all. The parties, the hobnobbing - she needs to get away so she can focus on producing the next great English novel, instead of the trashy yet entertaining dramatic romance series she's known for. She's off to spend the spring and summer months out in the Welsh countryside to see out her fathers dying wish that she publish his memoirs, and with the hope that inspiration will strike for her next novel without any distractions. No, no distractions, whatsoever.

    None at all. Nope.

    ...Oh, bother.

    Summary

    A look at various times in Patsy's life centered around her prayers.

    A bit of an angsty character study, but with a happy ending. Can be read as part of the canon. Not quite canon toward the end, but as close to canon as possible.
