    Summary

    As today is the start of Advent, I thought it might be fun to open a door to the Crown Inn, Poplar-on-Tweaven each day up until Christmas.

    Poplar-on-Tweaven is at the other end of England to Poplar, East London. It is also set in the present day, but you may find a lot of familiar friends, usually working or propping up the bar at the heart of the village in the Crown Inn.

    The Crown has a very full and eclectic Jukebox that can be found on Spotify, a taste of which is given in some chapter headings and opening quotes.

    Right it’s my round, what’s your tipple.

    Summary

    Just a whole bunch of oneshots that I probably won't turn into full blown stories. Some canon, some modern au, some val and Lucille probably. Need somewhere to pop my random scrubblings

    Summary

    In 1962, after her fathers death, London socialite and self proclaimed writer and artist, Patience Mount, decides she need a break from it all. The parties, the hobnobbing - she needs to get away so she can focus on producing the next great English novel, instead of the trashy yet entertaining dramatic romance series she's known for. She's off to spend the spring and summer months out in the Welsh countryside to see out her fathers dying wish that she publish his memoirs, and with the hope that inspiration will strike for her next novel without any distractions. No, no distractions, whatsoever.

    None at all. Nope.

    ...Oh, bother.

    Summary

    My take on a series 7 for our faves, mostly focussed on Patsy's recovery after Hong Kong and everything that trip brings up. Multichapter, open-ended, though vaguely based around songs by the British Indie band Keane, hence the title, from their first album, 'Hopes and Fears'.

    Content Warnings and Songs provided with each chapter - but expect an emotional rollercoaster with Delia and the rest of the Nonnatuns being steadfast in their solidarity and helping Patsy grow.

    Summary

    Detective Constable Mount has often read that there are people in this world with easy lives; she is beginning to realise that she is not one of them.

    There’s an arsonist in town playing with matches. With one body already going crispy it’s up to her to figure it all out while wrestling her own demons. And God knows she’s got enough of them to fill a very large book.

    In the meantime Seppie wants a dog, Ferns being a teenager, Trixies divorcing Tom, Helens marrying Phyllis and at some point Patsy really needs to pin Delia down for a chat.

    Eh. Life. It’s complicated.

    Also: this is part 2 in the series so if you want to know what the hells going on I’d suggest reading part 1 old tides.

    Summary

    Patsy returns from Hong Kong and Delia begins her journey as a midwife, but demons are lurking, old and new, also, of course this is Poplar where worlds can flip upside down within a split second.

    Basically, my take on Series 7 but Barbara doesn't die and Patsy and Delia don't go away to travel the world.

    Summary

    Patience Mount is the senior nurse at the Nonnatus Clinic. She's also the stressed out, grouchy, bitch of the office with unhealthy coping mechanisms that everyone knows to stay the hell away from at all times. Fresh out of nursing school, Delia Busby is thrown into this mess of a woman's life, and is instantly resented. Who is this sniveling kid with her sloppy uniform and cheery smile? Why is everyone conspiring against Patsy to work with this brat? Forcing them to attend a conference in Scotland together? Ten hours in the car with this know-nothing kid alone? What an absolute nightmare that'll be. She'd be cute is she wasn't so bloody useless and annoying.

    Summary

    The trolley full of beer was hurdling toward Lucille at an alarming rate and showed no signs of stopping. Before Valerie Dyer had even consciously made the decision, she found herself between Lucille and the runaway alcohol. Val caught the look of absolute horror on Lucille’s face right before the cart slammed into her. The last thing Val was able to process before passing out was Lucille shouting into the Black Sail for Val’s aunt to telephone for an ambulance.

    Summary

    Fics as prompted on tumblr (of the same name as this AO3) for a variety of characters and ships from CtM. Some are imagined moments that could be canon, others are either potential future developments, or AU. As more prompted fics or added, this could yet go in other directions, so stay tuned! The rating may change as stories are added, so I'll likely just warn you at the start of a chapter if it's M.

    Summary

    The whodunnit nobody asked for. Poplar is a sleepy seaside town with a lot of secrets. When the body of a nun washes up on the beach its up to Detective Constable Mount to work it all out. Unfortunately for Patsy, clinging to the world with tired hands, the chain reaction from one dead nun pulls her back into a life she'd prefer to keep buried. Oh, and there's this girl...

    Amendment:
    This story is the kind of twisty turny thing that sucks you in, it's sort of like a story black hole but without the bells and whistles of space and all that distracting physics algebra on a comically large blackboard (just to make sure you understand, this isn't in any way sci-if, relax)...

    It's a whodunnit with a romance thrown in, the whole gang are either nurses, teachers or cops and surprisingly they're all pretty versatile. Ahem, so as I was saying; you should read my fic. Because even if you think you have absolutely no interest in the perceived subject what-so-ever (thank you very much Harold!) when reading this summary you're still, probably, wrong; trust me on this. Seriously. Try the first chapter; what have you got to lose?
