  1. Summary

    Absolutely nothing in common apart from being cute, dorky and just a wee bit mental! Here's a collection of my random unrelated and unconnected Derry Girls stories that don't quite fit in with the timeline of my other ones!!

    It's all mostly just James and Erin being adorable clueless eejits but the rest of the gang and the rest of the Quinn-McCool family are never too far away either!

    Enjoy :)

  2. Summary

    The lives of Sybil Crawley and Tom Branson, both at Downton and beyond....all stories are oneshots mostly centering around Tom and Sybil's adorable relationship but with a few other pairings and family relationships thrown in from time to time too. Canon Compliant up until mid season three and Alternative Universe from there on.

    Lady Sybil does not die in this universe. Why? because I said so......

    So let's be sinners to be saints
    And let's be winners by mistake
    The world may disapprove
    But my world is only you
    And if we're sinners then it feels like heaven to me

  3. Summary

    Follow the lives of our favourite girl gang as they navigate the trials and tribulations of young love, growing up and the everyday chaotic craziness of being a teenager. This story contains awkward romance, almost kisses, wholesome friendships, near misses with the authorities (better known as...their mammies!), plenty of step aerobics and all the wonderful outrageous insanity that we associate with Derry Girls.

     

    I like the way your brain works, I like the way you try
    To run with the wolf pack when your legs are tired
    I like the way you turn me inside and out
    ~The Wombats, Turn.

  4. Summary

    It was that place, that funny place between adolescence and adulthood, between friendship and romance...between errors in judgement and a chance to start over and begin again. The Derry Girls were well on their way to becoming fully functional adults (or at least, semi-functional!), still joined together at the hip by friendship, loyalty and the chaos of their own creation.

    If it falls apart I will surely wake it
    Bright lights turn me green, this is worse than it seems
    Wait, I don't ever want to be here
    Like punching in a dream, breathing life into my nightmare
    ~The Naked and Famous, Punching in a Dream

    Summary

    History says, 'Don’t hope
    On this side of the grave'
    But then, once in a lifetime,
    The longed for tidal wave
    Of justice can rise up,
    And hope and history rhyme.

    - Seamus Heaney

    James, Erin, and the Good Friday Agreement.

    Summary

    Violet Bridgerton, the Dowager Viscountess Bridgerton, was not more proud of anything than her children. Eight children over the course of 18 years was a testament she was most proud of, especially after the death of her husband shortly before the birth of their eighth child. Violet was an elegant, determined, and loving mother. As her children grew, she wanted nothing more for them than to find such happiness she had had with their father. But in the eyes of a harsh, judgmental society imparting its thoughts on everyone and every match at any given second, she found it difficult to ensure that happiness in her children’s matches.

    The love stories of the eight Bridgerton children as seen from their mother's perspective.

    Summary

    Penelope grunted in affront. Who knew Cupid was such an ass?

    “Now that we established that, tell me who I need to hit with my arrow.”

    “Okay, let’s say I believe your madness,” he rolled his eyes at her, “let’s say I do, obviously I would want help with Colin.”

    “Finally, we’re talking,” Cupid exclaimed as he stretched his arms in preparation. “No problem, girl. I would take care of it. Although, I do have to put out a disclaimer. If he has pre-existing affection for you, it will disappear when my arrow strikes. Have to say that. Litigation is expensive nowadays. If I get sued one more time, my insurance will drop me.”

    “I don’t think it’s going to be a problem,” she said resolutely.

    Summary

    Half-way around the world and he realises there is more to the home he left behind than blood ties and a big raucous house. A certain red-haired neighbour has snuck into his consciousness and he feels the distance between them like a loose mooring.
    ... followed by snapshots of life on his return because I couldn’t stop. Should probably write a new summary at some point.
