You can read my old fic or jump straight into this one. Apart from a certain plot point involving Susan (which you find out about pretty much straight away) it stands on its own.
( The Deviousness of Wise Men )
Trailer is at the end of Part 2 (following)
This picture was for lucky FrancisKerst, and now shared with everyone here at Discoveredinalj.
And how fab is this one? The lads all cosy in their jumpers, and oh for the way Doyle's holding his skiis, all confidence and competence... and I suspect some people will rather like Bodie's direct stare and the way he's stroking his gloves on. *g*
I know it's late, but I was thinking that if we do it in the comments we won't disturb our post-er tomorrow - would anyone like to play drabbles or mini-round-robin in the comments here? (I have one bugger of a work doc to finish, and I desperately need something lovely to think about, like our lads in the snow! I reckon I can manage a sentence at at time if other people help out... *g*)
And I know - this was not the Dialj-post-er that you were looking for. Today's post-er has not appeared yet, and as she went AWOL from her last calendar day, and hasn't replied to any of my attempts to remind her/check everything's okay, I'm taking the liberty of making a just-in-case post this time! She still has an hour and three quarters to slide in, and she may well be planning to do so, but I get nervy about people at this stage of the night, so... hope she doesn't mind/is happy to share! And this way, we get the lads in friends lists for the day, as promised by the comm.
And a big thank you to loxleyprince for saving the day with extra content!
It's a cross-over of sorts with the Speilberg film Artificial Intelligence (in turn based on Super-Toys Last All Summer Long by Brian Aldiss). You don't really need to know the plot of the film, and the characters play relatively minor roles in my story, but you might want to look at the trailer to get an idea of the setting and the sort of feel of things. The film and story are set in the future, the late 22nd century - so it's an AU Bodie and Doyle. *g*
The only possibly annoying news is that I have to go out in twenty minutes, and so I only have time to post the first part now - but I'll post the others as soon as I come back! Sorry about that. And I'll use links between the posts, for easy navigation - but the first won't work until I get the second up etc.
( The Waters and the Wild by Slantedlight )
Go on! You know you want it!
Was it bad, then even more.
My turn! My turn!
I’m sorry my contribution this year is just a single picture – between internet difficulties, LJ falling over and various other trials and tribulations, it’s all been a little tricky… yes, I always wear this tin helmet *g*
My thanks to everyone else who’s taken part – I’m way behind in commenting, but loving it all – and to byslantedlight for
whipping us into order getting us all pointing in the same direction yet again.
So, a picture of the lads, lighting candles to push back the darkness at the end of this bloody year. Here’s to a much better and gentler year, full of love and kindness and Pros-y goodness.
