    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 are 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

    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

    Poplar, London. 1963.

    Patsy has returned from Hong Kong following her father's death. After a passionate reunion with Delia, they set about rebuilding their lives together. Delia begins her journey as a midwife, helped on by Val and Phyllis. Nonnatus house employs a new midwife in Lucille. Trixie suffers a relapse and both Patsy and Delia are battling with their own health, mental and physical - but seeking help is never easy. Everything comes to a head when Patsy suspects abuse within a family and Nonnatus House is shaken by a tragedy.

    A fic based loosely off series 7 if Patsy and Delia were to not disappear and travel the globe. Written as close to the style of the show and its characters as possible with some original characters and plot twists to be had along the way.

    Summary

    I have been asked a few times now, why the title? As Sister Evie said babies don't slide out like lubricated penguins and her admonishment always reminds me fics don't either.
    The stories in this series (so far) presented a challenge in some way or had a difficult birth, but inspite of or maybe because of that, they are among my favourites.

    So this series will be predominantly non-Turnadette focused, as they have their own series in "Minding the Gaps" .

    The latest penguin (chapter 8) features Phyllis and Lucille.

    Summary

    A spin off of my crossover but predominantly Call the Midwife based fic, 'Nocturne'. Probably helps to read that but I'll try to make this readable without the need.

    Patsy wasn't the only one taken, beaten, destroyed, experimented upon and used in all manner of ways. Patsy wasn't the only one that was special to one of their captors. Patsy wasn't the only one but a part of Ann Walker wishes she was.

    **Dark. D. A. R. K. Abuse of many kinds. Very much full of angst. Almost every trigger warning should be in place, I think. Be cautious. Slow burn, as well. On that note, I hope you enjoy.**

    Summary

    The 1962 West End production of "Ring the Nurses!" begins. With its devastatingly beautiful star Patsy Mount in control of every detail, newcomer Delia Busby wonders if she'll have a chance to make her mark - with Patsy or on the eviscerating London stage.

    There’s lots here about counter-culture, underground rule-breaking, and, of course, forbidden love!

    I’m really late to the pupcake fandom, but I’m obsessed. This fic combines my interest in our ladies, ‘60s bohemian culture, and the theatre. Hope this combo interests you, too.

    Summary

    An episode set during early Season 5. Slightly AU in that Delia works as a midwife at Nonnatus.
    Sister Winifred and Delia nurse an elderly lesbian couple, and both struggle in different ways. Sister Winifred struggles between her duty as a nurse and her conviction as a nun, while Delia desperately wants to live as openly as her patients do, but thinks Patsy is too frightened.
    Meanwhile, the sister of Dr. Turner's first wife comes to stay with the Turners, and makes clear that she does not approve of her brother-in-law's new family.

    Summary

    Passing the panty; a colloquialism for the roller-derby term 'passing the star'.

    Eighteen year old Delia Busby is sick of living out in the middle of nowhere, and always being under her mother's thumb. That's when she meets Patsy Mount.

    Summary

    A fate switch AU where Delia didn't borrow Patsy's bike, but the bike met the same end.

    Patsy's accident will affect them all. This is the story of how Delia and the Nonnatuns cope with the aftermath of the shocking tragedy and band together as a family as Patsy begins her recovery...and faces her past.

    An ensemble piece with POVs from all of the Nonnatus crew that redefines the term slow burn. Full of angst, all the feels, and a huge amount of love.

    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

    Trixie Franklin appears large as life in episode 1 of Series 1. We learn little of how she arrived at Nonnatus or how long she has been there.

    My story starts Christmas 1960 and looks back at Trixie's first few years in Poplar prior to Jenny Lee and Chummy's arrival and then completes a circle back to December 1960.

    This one like all of my offerings is full of imperfections and wanderings, but this story is very special to me and if you get a few minutes pleasure or distraction from reading it, then that's job done.
