    Summary

    Francis Crawford was one of the biggest names in twentieth century music. His grandson, who shares his name, wants to be known for his own style and not defined by his famous relative. After winning a battle of the bands competition at Solway Moss, he is snapped up by Lennox Records, and soon finds success isn't everything it's cracked up to be.

    It's 1979, the Tories just won an election, and the power may be back on but punk is dead and life looks grim. What else is there for a precociously talented teenager to do but embrace all the sex, drugs and rock'n'roll he can get a handle on?
    -
    About the archive warnings: You'll know if you've read LC about the age gap between Francis and Margaret. In the UK the age of consent is 16, but I'm aware it may not be elsewhere; on the other hand, you can't legally buy alcohol until you're 18. Basically, expect teenagers doing stupid things, the same sort of nasty relationships you find in canon, and a lot of obnoxious references to music of the '70s/'80s.

    Summary

    Two sisters, separated by life and blood status navigate troubled wizarding and muggle worlds, as new evils and old conflicts emerge to draw them into wars they have no desire to fight.

    - note -
    This is an old start to a story I've had sitting around on my computer for a while, that I may finish some day. It has an outline, and a hazy conclusion. This IS also a fanfic of the Lymond Chronicles, but all aspects from that story will be explained. I don't expect most HP readers to know that story. The characters in this story are distant descendants of certain Lymond characters.

    “Ah,” said Philippa, raising a dignified finger. “Mr. Crawford says the proper word is ‘exhume.’”

    Summary

    St Mary’s — Summer, 1666
    Jerott Blyth has not set foot in Scotland since the death of his wife. Francis Crawford has not left since then. Through the intervening years, a building sense of lack finally brings Jerott back to St Mary’s Loch, in the hope of putting an unwanted feeling behind him. Isn’t it the case that there’s nothing like reality for reminding you of your idol’s flaws?
    --
    “It’s good to see you too, Jerott.”
    They might have been neighbours accustomed to encountering one another in their daily routines on land and in water. Francis had not been surprised to find Jerott riding alone to his estate on an unremarkable summer morning, and Jerott had not been surprised to find Francis exercising in the cool loch, as content to needle his unexpected guest with ironic verse as if Jerott had only left St Mary’s a week ago.
    --
    For Scotswap 2019, a gift for Lamen-king on tumblr, who gave me the most delicious prompt I could have asked for.
    I finished this a little early, and then Chapter 2 sort of wrote itself. If you prefer things to remain one-sided, strictly UST, then please just enjoy Chapter 1.

    ScotSwap prompt: Lymond spying behind enemy lines.

    But of course -- spies don't exist in a void. Somewhere on the homefront, they have people. Ones who need their reports, ones who fret for their safety, ones who know their faces and their names... Lymond spying behind enemy lines, but not from Lymond's point of view.

    Summary

    After the events of Checkmate, Jerott is waiting for the mysteriously delayed Danny Hislop to finally make his way to Scotland so they can go to Malta together (because this is Jerott and he thinks running away to Malta is the only way to deal with his problems). While waiting, he has plenty of time to consider the nature of love and to realise a few things about Francis Crawford. For light relief, there's a curling match.

    Thank you to the people who posted encouragement on my Sunday Seven extract from this many months ago. It got a bit long because I have 0 self control and also because I wanted to make sure neither Marthe nor Philippa were overlooked for the sake of the guys' feelings. I know others have written fic about this and I apologise if there's any crossover: I've been holding off reading the archives here until I finished and I am so excited to go and do so now!

    If there are historical inaccuracies then I humbly beg forgiveness and also that you break it to me gently.

    Scotswap for @bellaroles

    “Prompt for an AU Lymond as Kaladin from the stormlight's archive. For one day. Well they both have survivor guilt so why not? I don't know how to do this since I can't write a fic coherently if I try.”
