    Summary

    It wasn’t Trewlove or Strange that hurried towards Jakes’ desk with worry in their eyes at the devilish hour of three in the afternoon, too far away from noon and too early for having an excuse to linger in the staff room over a good cup of tea.

    It was Mr. Bright.

     

    In which Morse faints at the office, Jakes eats the best porridge of his life and everyone has a backup plan for when the shit inevitably hits the fan.

    Summary

    Morse flinched. “This isn’t a competition to see who can say the most ridiculous thing.”

    “I’m not just saying it.”

    “You’re drunk,” Morse said, finishing the rest of his own champagne.

    Jakes bent down and set his glass on the ground beside him. “Believe me, Morse, I’m not.” He reached out and rubbed at Morse’s jacket, where a tiny drop of champagne had left a spot. “I hate what those words mean about me, but I love you. I might only be saying it because it’s midnight on New Year’s Day and I didn’t kiss anyone, but then I didn’t kiss anyone in there only because I wanted to kiss you.”

    Summary

    There's been a mysterious death - at least they think someone died - its hard to say for sure when all they've got to show for it is a pile of ash.

    Oh and Morse is a dragon. Need I say more?

    Summary

    Endeavour Morse is a disaster who always seems to end up at the wrong end of the case. If this were any other world, his night would have ended with a whiskey bottle and possibly a case of pneumonia. But he has someone to go home to, someone who will take the time to make sure he gets warmed up and maybe eats something for once.

    Summary

    “Who would marry who, do you think?” It's from nowhere, and Morse hums questioningly while Peter ignores it, comfortable in his half doze. “Between you two and me.”

    Morse sighs, the stroking stopping, and Peter opens his eyes to complain. His gaze meets blue, and her words catch up to him.

    “You marry Morse, and you become Joan Morse,” he says, still staring upwards; enough to catch the twitch of Morse's lips.

    Summary

    He can't help the way his eyes drift across the room, to Morse in his shirtsleeves, arms crossed across his body. Its a defensive posture, which is no surprise, but otherwise he looks collected. Calm. Like facing down man eating beasts is all part of the job, and despite the evidence of today, it most certainly is not part of the job.

    Tigers. For the love of God, give him an axe murderer any day.

    Summary

    It was too much like that time at the bank, when Morse had ended up with a bullet in his gut, bleeding out in the dirty alley. And it was too soon...too soon since the last time he had held a bleeding Morse in his arms.

     

    Please, not again.

    Summary

    Endeavour Morse is finally out of a coma, but still in hospital after being brutally beaten by Cole Matthews. Peter Jakes refuses to leave Morse's side until he's well again. Thursday and Bright try to mop up, and Fancy...Fancy has some hero-worship moments.

    Direct continuation of Stitches. I highly recommend you read that first, if you haven't already.

    Summary

    Peter Jakes invites Endeavour Morse over for dinner...for their first real date, uninterrupted by murderers or awkwardness. He just wants a chance to do right by Morse. He didn't quite expect the evening to end the way it did.

    Not that he was complaining, mind you.

    Summary

    In a world where people are born with extra talents, powers if you will, life in Oxford is interesting to say the least. From the mundane to the frankly terrifying, the Cowley team and co. are a strange bunch, but it makes the cases a whole lot more intriguing.

    Summary

    Peter Jakes and Endeavour Morse are just trying to get some routine interviews done. As we all know, there is nothing routine with D.C. Morse. So when Jakes can't find him in the pub, he naturally assumes the worst. To be fair, he wasn't far off.

    However, no one touches his Morse. No one.

    Summary

    Peter should’ve known it wasn’t like Morse to obey orders. It wasn't much of a comfort to him when the dust fell and nobody followed him and Verity out of the chalk tunnels.

    A tale of injury and recovery spanning the time period from April 1967 (s03e02 Arcadia) to Autumn 1967. Contains a lot of spoilers for Arcadia.

    Summary

    A continuation of 'In Which Morse Is an Ass Man, Probably' where Jakes and Morse... get it on? That's really all there is to it, no plot here to speak of.
