    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

    “I sometimes feel as if we’re ghosts—half with each other, but mostly without. I think it would be easier to do what everyone’s so bloody insistent on and get married, and just accept that... you and I can never be.” In 1960, Delia Busby could no longer bear having a secret lover. She leaves Patsy at The Silver Buckle that cold night and marries a man three months later. The day of the wedding, Patsy accepts a job in Bristol and runs away, never looking back and never forgiving herself for not having the courage to fight for love.

    Fifty years later, Patsy and Delia reconnect through a website called Facebook.

    Inspired by the show Last Tango in Halifax.

    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

    Detective Constable Mount has often read that there are people in this world with easy lives; she is beginning to realise that she is not one of them.

    There’s an arsonist in town playing with matches. With one body already going crispy it’s up to her to figure it all out while wrestling her own demons. And God knows she’s got enough of them to fill a very large book.

    In the meantime Seppie wants a dog, Ferns being a teenager, Trixies divorcing Tom, Helens marrying Phyllis and at some point Patsy really needs to pin Delia down for a chat.

    Eh. Life. It’s complicated.

    Also: this is part 2 in the series so if you want to know what the hells going on I’d suggest reading part 1 old tides.
