    Summary

    A very nice person asked for more about Lady Petra Wimsey, so I thought I'd take my cue from that part of Whose Body? where Lord Peter drives Mrs Thipps to Duke's Denver "in a friend's car".

    Summary

    Looking through the Lord Peter Wimsey fan fiction, I noticed one where Harriet Vane becomes Harry Vane. I thought an obvious genderswap would be for Lord Peter to become Lady Petra – but no-one else seems to have tried that yet.
    But what would Lady Petra Wimsey be able to do in the Great War? And how would she meet her Bunter?

    Summary

    The Dowager Duchess of Denver's letter to Harriet (as mentioned in Busman's Honeymoon) after Peter and Harriet become engaged.

    (I know Peter's mother seems kind of inimitable, but I've read some wonderful versions of her on this forum which inspired me to give this a try!

    Thank you for reading. xxx)

    From a prompt by gaslightgallows on a quotation from Wuthering Heights: “He’s always, always in my mind – not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself – but as my own being.” 

    Details and some dialogue are taken from Busman's Honeymoon.

    Summary

    Lord Peter Wimsey has been searching for his Sentinel since his Guide gifts awoke in the middle of a bloody battlefield during the Great War. However, even his considerable sleuthing skills aren't enough to find them, and after over a decade of searching, he's close to giving up when he is sent to investigate possible Sentinel/Guide corruption in London's bohemian quarter.

    Summary

    Set in 1949, Dorothea, now a moderately successful author, goes to stay with Nancy and John and their daughters on Malta, where John is stationed. Later in the same summer, Dorothea, Dick and Titty, along with the small Callums then revisit the Hebrides. (I've got Port and Starboard as Nell and Bess in by copy of coot club (not a first ed.) so went with Port being Nell and Starboard being Bess.) If I've got it wrong, I'm sorry.

    Summary

    As the new Duchess of Denver, Lady Peter (alias Harriet Vane) tells H. M. The Queen Mother about her changeable life and fate.
    A crossover from Dorothy Sayers' novels: "Strong Poison", "Gaudy Night", "Busman's honeymoon" to Jill Paton Walsh's novels: "Thrones and Dominations", "The Attenbury Emeralds". I highly admire the works of both the novelists, and am profoundly affected by Harriet Vane's lot.

    Pure fluff - about the year 1953.
