    Summary

    “They’re recruiting Protestant Irishmen to come over here as Specials.” Arthur had crossed his arms and taken a deep breath, his voice booming with revelation, echoing around in the crowded front room of the shop, but Brigid’s focus was sharp on the notice in front of her. Something like dread, like familiarity, twisted in her stomach. As she smoothed the leaflet down beside her plate, the paper rustled under her shaking hands.

    “To do what?” Ada interjected, soft and confused, for once breaking her own rule about staying out of Peaky business.

    Her heart racing, and before Arthur or any of the others could answer, the words tumbled out, heavy on her tongue. “To clean up the city.”

    -

    Or, Tommy and Brigid try to stay together, even as the world tries to tear them apart.

    Summary

    Nobody understands Tommy’s betrayal of his family at the end of Season 3, until they do. Until they all realise he had no choice. It was give them up or never see Grace again. He couldn’t take that chance. He needed to see if it was true, if she really was alive.

    Summary

    It was the morning of her marriage. Esme rubbed the sleep out of her eyes and sighed softly, blinking at the roof of the rickety wagon. It had been a cold night, and it was an even colder morning. She was nervous, the way any bride would be the morning of a wedding - what if she tripped on the cold, stone cobbles? What if the overwhelming stench of salt and smoke was all she would remember of this day when she got old?

    She wasn’t worried about her husband.

    Summary

    Tommy needs a wife - but Grace doesn't fit the bill. What if he married for respectability rather than love?

    Season 2/3. This story is rated M because... well... this is a story about the Shelby family and not the Waltons.

    I wish the Peaky Blinders were mine (who wouldn't) but sadly they aren't!

    Summary

    Tommy had always been a sucker for control. Not purely for the sake of dominance and authority but because he learned the hard way that this is how you protect those you love. But sometimes he felt his gypsy roots pulling at him: freedom, letting go, trusting your gut, listening to the voices in the wind… And in these singular instants where Tommy allowed insecurity and doubt into his life he felt more whole than ever.

    In the midst of his life as a single father, as a fresh member of parliament and still as the head of the Shelby family, Thomas comes face-to-face with a gypsy woman from his childhood. Connected by heritage but allied by their shared belief in socialism, they fight for the rights of the working class. Slowly but surely they both recover from the horror of the Great War. But whoever said that ‘it’s darkest before dawn’ probably didn’t know the Peaky Blinders…

    Summary

    A lot can change in just two years’ time, especially when a dead man’s file of secrets and lies is thrown into the mix. For two years, Tommy threw himself into his work; while Rebecca suffered through hell. Fed up with living in the ever expanding void, Rebecca will risk it all in pursuit of the truth and her freedom. Of course, Churchill comes to collect his favor at the most inconvenient time. Tommy will be pushed to his limit as he struggles to balance his personal and professional life. After all, it’s hard to salvage one’s marriage with mad Russians and a violent priest in the mix.

     

    **Highly suggest reading the first story in the series before starting this one.

    Summary

    Which is also the reason why he had the time to inspect the strange letter that had arrived that morning, without being interrupted.

    It was simply addressed to „The Shelby residence“ in an elegant script with no return address.

    Summary

    "For a midwife, you joined the pudding club awfully quickly." Esme nudged the redhead with the loose stack of files, filled with both her's and John's work for the rest of the morning. Though conveniently, he had yet to show up in the betting shop; nursing a hangover from last night's festivities in The Garrison.

    "Hmm, maybe I just wanted to make up for lost time wae ma old pal fae the wagons?" Nora teased back, watching her friend sit at the opposite side of the table, "-or tie masel doon tae the riches of the Shelby family? The lonely wee Glesga lassie, finally wae a roof that willnae fall in."

    Esme laughed at Nora's gallus and dramatic gestures. "You're so full of shit, y'know that?"

    "Aye, an you smell like it."
