    They have coffee. Only not the coffee that we know about. Coffee before that coffee. She fixes him, he fixes her.

    Summary

    “When it jumps, you run,” Morse’s voice rings out desperately. There is no hope to be found in remaining quiet, therefore his voice, unsteady and full of finality, is loud in an unfamiliar way.

    The tiger’s muscles bunch and it leaps forward.

    Summary

    This is a difficult story. It's very dark. I considered not publishing it, but I spent a long time working on it.

    It's another non-linear, non-canonical story. It takes place toward the end of the fourth season, and has no connection with my other stories.

    I use a mixture of American and U.K. slang terms.

    Some events have been changed, as to where they appear in the usual time sequence.

    The story begins at the time Endeavour went over to Joan’s flat, and Joan mentions that he never “tried it on” with her.

    I have taken “artistic license” with some characters. I added Robert Lewis and George Fancy to the story. I have also invented a name for Supt. Bright’s wife.

    Note the last paragraph here: https://www.inbrief.co.uk/offences/assault-gbh-abh/ Also, community service means: Unpaid work, intended to be of social use, that an offender is required to do instead of going to prison. (https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/community_service)

    There are scenes of foul language, graphic depictions of violence, and sexual situations. Story contains the death of one minor character and one major character. Thanks for reading. Hope you enjoy.

    Summary

    Before the events of Arcadia, after Morse’s return in Ride, the detective constable is sent out to look over a sudden death and finds himself caught up in a double homicide, both bodies arranged in symbolic manners that reflect the works of the acclaimed bard. A message from the killer indicates that this is not the end, merely the beginning of his work. The spirit of Mason Gull shows it’s hand in this, but dead men don’t walk, and they certainly don’t kill. Could it be the work of an accomplice or a much more convoluted and sinister plot than Morse realizes, one that threatens to choke the light out of him.

    Summary

    It was the Tenth Year again. The very reason people celebrated Christmas with such abandon during the other nine of the decade.
    The Tenth Year, when the dead returned.
    And Fred knew exactly who would come back this time.

    Morse is quite the storyteller.

    Summary

    Oldshrewsburyian came up with a scenario to match the anonymously-prompted title (maybe it was meant to be "Three Wise Men?"**), and so I wrote this...

    "I think this is a Christmastide Endeavour fic, less angsty than my wont (or the fandom’s.) The three wise men can be Thursday, Morse, and Bright, each with his own kind of wisdom. The crime is the theft of this charming object (http://collections.ashmolean.org/collection/browse-9148/per_page/100/offset/0/sort_by/random/category/sculpture/start/1415/end/1495/object/50410) from the Ashmolean’s collections. "

    I set it after season 4 (Harvest), because that is the first winter when Morse is in Oxford and not incarcerated as far as I can tell. Not exactly spoilery, but will make more sense if you've seen the episodes up through S04. Not at all Brit-picked or betaed, just for fun.

     

    **edited to add: I guess it could go either way, and I like this way best ;)

    Summary

    This is an ‘Alternate Universe’-type story, set in late 1968 and early 1969.

    Plot does not connect to my other stories. There are several departures from the canon, both from the TV show and the Colin Dexter books.

    Takes place in Oxford. Begins before the shootout in “Icarus.” I have rearranged the scene a bit. Some new characters are there, some old ones are not.

    A ‘regular’ soda is the old word for ‘medium-sized.’

    A tam o’shanter is an Irish hat, somewhat like a beret with a puff on top.

    The Museum of Modern Art (in) Oxford opened in 1965. I don’t know if they had glass sculptures in the early exhibitions. Maybe they did.

    The Oxford Botanical Gardens charges admissions today, but I don’t know if they did in the late 1960s.

    Yes, it’s a fantasy, ultimately, but so are all my stories.

    Thank you for reading them. I hope you enjoy.

    Please note: story contains graphic violence, sexual situations, and foul language.

    Summary

    Set in Oxford, in the second half of 1969. A building burns to the ground. The circus rolls in. Endeavour’s relative pays a visit, for the first time in years. A baby boy needs a christening. Unwelcome gossip causes Joan to take drastic measures. Lewis and Valerie have a big day ahead. Also, there’s a cat. The Seventies are just around the corner.

    ‘Elkwood’ was not a real drama show on the air in 1969. I made it up.

    Thanks very much. I hope you enjoy the story.
