    Summary

    Inspired by a wonderful chapter in the fic 'Gastr-AU-nomy' by 105NorthTower.......they wrote Strike as Captain of a cruise liner.....there was an amazing description of him wearing a sweater knotted to cover his epaulettes, and I really liked the idea of Strike in a pristine, crisp white shirt....with aviator shades!!
    I also went on holiday to Malta, and we had a rather 'Devil may care' pilot on the out going flight....and thus the story was formed!
    SO, here he is as a pilot.....working on a teeny plane, island hopping in the Caribbean.....and Robin has just left Matt before the alter.
    She gets on the first plane - which happens to be to the island of Marie-Galante in the Caribbean - hastily arranging a hotel room, which leads to much confusion for Strike (who happens to double up as a bar tender too at the resort......stick with me....this is a finely honed machine!) when he discovers she's staying in the honeymoon suite!
    And then the real mix up starts with her thinking HE'S married......then there'll be a plane crash......but it's one of MY fics.....so it'll all be fine!
    The language will be suitably 'Strike-esque' - but I'm keeping it as Teen and Up for now.

    Summary

    SINOPSIS: Cormoran Strike is the eldest of three orphaned children in London. After they lose it all during the Blitz bombings, their luck will somehow change when they find the generous, kind and upper-class Ellacott family farm in North Yorkshire.
    There are themes of violence, death, cruelty and drama. Also some Strike things had to change, like some names to make it more fitting for the 1940s.
    ABOUT THE AUTHOR: I've always loved Narnia, and felt from childhood a strange pull towards Charles Dickens’ ‘David Copperfield’, ‘Oliver Twist’ and ‘Great Expectations’. I have also been weird enough to feel a strange pull my whole life to World War II stories and accounts. All of that somehow has merged into this Fanfic, to tell stories of war, of tragedy, of love, of friendship, and of survival through what for me were one of the worst times in history.

    Summary

    Immediately following the events of Troubled Blood, Robin and Strike fall headlong into an intimate relationship. At the same time, the partners take a new case on behalf of Jago Ross. While Cormoran holds things down at the office, Robin leads undercover surveillance at a high-profile bank. But when the conclusion of a serial rapist's prison sentence coincides with sinister notes posted to the agency, the new lovers quarrel. Convinced Robin's attacker from her days at uni is free and making his way to London, Cormoran pleads her to stay off surveillance. Robin believes the only way to be wholly and authentically free is to see her investigation through to its end. Can she secure evidence for their client before a ghost of her past catches up with her, and will Cormoran's affection survive the trial of her integrity?

    Summary

    Cormoran hated every moment of his recovery; every moment feeling more like a burden than he usually did, every time he was handed a plate of cut-up food or had to request anything from the office or shop.
    Well... not every moment, actually. It was comfortable. On the days Robin was around, he didn't mind being stuck in the house - it even began to feel homely.
    Maybe his recovery wasn't so bad after all. Maybe the worst part was moving back to the office, where he had to share Robin, and she laughed less and ate fewer biscuits; and his tiny flat, where Robin never ventured.
