    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

    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.

    Summary

    Taking a wee Turnadette break (they will be back). I wanted for a long time to write about Phyllis & Barbara's friendship. Towards the end of Series 7, I noticed Babs was looking a bit peaky. So I got a shift on and wrote this prior to episode 7. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

    Summary

    A canon-compliant version of Series 7 for our favourite wonder women, starting off in Poplar with their reunion, and following them as they travel the world before ending up in Scotland. Inspired by the songs of the British band Snow Patrol, and an entirely separate universe to my other fics.

    Initial very brief angst but otherwise fluff (with feelings and realism).

    Summary

    Poplar-on-Tweaven is at the other end of England to Poplar, East London. It is also set in the present day, but you may find a lot of familiar friends, usually working or propping up the bar at the heart of the village in the Crown Inn.

    The Crown has a very full and eclectic Jukebox that can be found on Spotify, a taste of which is given in some chapter headings and opening quotes.

    Right it’s my round, what’s your tipple.

    Summary

    Patsy is in the early stages of dementia and, her memory having once been her greatest asset, is struggling to adjust. Ever medically-minded, she and Delia concoct a plan to stem the advancing disease, based on Delia’s recollections of recovering from her accident and Patsy’s love of gardening. Plot a mixture of current interactions and flashbacks from throughout their history. Hopefully an appropriate balance of angst (all of which has nothing to do with their relationship) and fluff (which has everything to do with their relationship).
