    Summary

    "A flash of a smile is all it takes to have a cigarette and a light, and Judith lets the slow, repetitive rhythm of inhaling and exhaling settle her thoughts. The frustration hardens into anger. The anger crystallizes into the beginnings of a plan.

    She’s paying a cab driver outside Blanche’s front door before she’s even thought past the first step of her plan.

    Alfred could be home. Blanche could be out. Blanche could be asleep. Well, that’s unlikely. Judith’s fairly certain Blanche wasn’t lying when she said she never sleeps. She’s never once been unavailable when Judith has needed her. There are, however, still a dozen good reasons not to have come."

    Summary

    Stephen asked for a divorce. Irv tried to oust her. Andrea quit. But that wasn't the worst thing to happen to Miranda Priestly that weekend, not by a long shot. Good thing the rest of the season turned out better. (A lot better, as it happens.)

    Miranda is a college football fan whose flirting leaves a lot to be desired, leaving Andy both terrorised and aroused. Brilliant fic. Very re-readable.

    Summary

    Runway is the battlefield, not the prize. Miranda Priestly, seductive manipulator and strategist versus Andrea Sachs, Nigel’s replacement and Anna Wintour’s ex-protégé. What, exactly, are they fighting for?
    AU in that the story takes place three years after the movie which, incidentally, did not have Andrea in it but another second assistant who tossed the phone in Paris. Miranda is slightly younger (48), the twins are slightly younger, too (9) and she’s been divorced from Stephen for two years. Miranda got Nigel the EIC gig at Runway France. Before he leaves, he has one month to find and train his replacement...Andrea Sachs, recently from Vogue. Andrea is older (35), married to Nate who is a stay-at-home dad to their four year old daughter. I also took the liberty of ‘cherry picking’ scenes/dialogue from the movie for this fanfic disregarding chronology. 
    Usual disclaimer about nothing is mine, not making money, etc. applies.

    Epic story of Andy the Fashion Director who takes over from Nigel, who’s dom at work and sub in the bedroom. Miranda is sharp and clever. Anna is a hoot and the dialogue with Miranda is brilliant. Lots of scenes with the kids, including Andy’s 4 year old, who are darlings. A rollicking ride.

    Clever AU with Andy as a lawyer. Well written and great back story for Miranda as a 54 year old menopausal woman circumspect about being a partner to a woman not yet in the prime of her life.
