    Summary

    Summary

    When you can’t trust yourself, whom do you trust?

    “I think I’m losing my mind.” Brock’s voice was hollow, like the thought alone didn’t make bile rise in his throat. “I can’t even tell if I’m dreaming or not.”
    “Calm down, you’re fine. Of course you don’t know if you’re dreaming, you’re barely awake. You’re gonna be just fine in the morning.”
    It sounded… well, tempting to believe in. Could he believe it? His gut told him it wasn’t that simple, but could he really trust himself anymore? And if he couldn’t, who else was there to trust but Jack? Jack who always looked out for him, who saved his life time and time again? Jack, who currently suffered from a minor head trauma and was the best liar – maybe apart from Pierce – Brock knew?

    The plan was simple: go to Scotland, eliminate the target, come back home. The mission went smoothly. It was the coming back that was the problem.

    Summary

    Truly the universe is full of ghosts, not the sheeted churchyard spectres, but the indistinguishable elements of individual life, which having once been, can never die, though they blend and change, and change again forever. ---H. Rider Haggard, King Solomon’s Mines

    Summary

    Phryne and Jack moved their partnership to the boudoir well over a year ago. They traveled the world together for almost a year before returning to Melbourne. Things have been... fine... really. No, they've been great. So, why is Phryne so unhappy? She meets a young nurse in Mac's hospital who desperately needs a clever savior. Things aren't as simple as they seem, though, and what was thought completely reliable is suspect.
    This is part of the MFMM August Trope Challenge "The Dulcinea Effect".
    This is also part of the MFMM September Trope Challenge "Don't Believe the Rumours" (the aspects of which were always planned, but lucky me, fit the trope!)

    Summary

    Phryne Fisher enjoyed gossip. It was something that she had accepted about herself rather early on, despite the scolding Aunt Prudence gave her when, as a child, she had leaned over to overhear her father’s conversations. Besides, loose lips were nearly always the source of good information, and good gossip made for good sleuthing.

    Summary

    Twelve months of tropes with Miss Fisher - from soulmates via bottle episodes to time and space and far beyond!

    This is a non-fiction fanwork, where I discuss the tropes from the MFMM Year of Tropes; the different ways the tropes are interpreted in the fanfics; and what this brings to the analysis of Phryne Fisher and her world.

    The overviews mention all fics that are published within the challenge - and the challenge is open for anyone who wishes to join, no restrictions! Hope you enjoy - and that this might inspire to some sleuthing among the fanfics! (and maybe some writing too)
