Talking point

Two conversational fics I enjoyed reading:

Discovered in a Car by Thora Arwin

"So if you like tall and dark, do you like Murphy then?"

Bodie blinked, then started laughing. "Oh, no."

Doyle smiled, amused despite himself. "Why not?"

"Too tall for me," Bodie said. "Too pretty."

"Ah," Doyle bit his lip. "Definitely not a word I'd associate with our Murph." He tried to grin at Bodie to show he meant well. Bodie rolled his eyes. "What about McCabe?"

"He's a pig."


Bodie gave him a look. "Are you trying to be funny?"

The Last Cherry by The Hag

"Only way to be sure, isn't it?" Doyle sounded defeated. "About the last cherry I've got." He rested his chin on the top of Bodie's head.

"Ready to give it up, are you?"

"Thinking I'll need to if I want to be keeping you around. Sixty years you promised."

I think The Last Cherry is a fantastic piece of writing and one of those stories which make me proud of Pros as a fandom.

I agree. I love Doyle's tenderness and determination here. It's really outstanding. :-)
