    Summary

    Bernie and Serena have been bound together by a Red String of Fate since their first kiss. When Bernie dies, Serena expects it to vanish. It doesn’t. When Serena begins knitting a blanket out of the seemingly endless cord, she expects to eventually reach its end. She doesn’t anticipate the end reaching back.

    Summary

    Serena Campbell knows lots of things. She knows that noon is too early for a glass of Shiraz. She knows how to file. She knows she likes working at her local GP practice and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Robbie.
    What Serena doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane.

    Bernie Wolfe knows getting blown up took away her desire to live. She knows she's embarrassed that her son has to care for her. And that her ex-husband didn't leave her because she was suicidal, but rather that she fancied a woman. She also knows that woman is gone for good as well. She knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and she knows exactly how she's going to put a stop to that.

    What Bernie doesn't know is that Serena is about to burst into her world in a riot of colourful blouses, quips, and Shiraz. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

    Summary

    It's been the sort of crisis that makes Kate Stewart forget what day it was, in the conventional sense rather than because of a passing Time Lord or a necessary memory wipe. It's also been the sort of crisis where science ended up sharing the lead with the military. But the crisis is over, the situation resolved, and Kate's just got home. The question is, where's her girfriend? And what day is it?

    [Kate/Osgood Christmas story. Set in the same 'headcanon universe' as my other story 'Code Word Classified: Gallifrey' - it's not necessary to have read that story at all (this is a total standalone) but they will complement each other.]

    Summary

    [Description Update (March 2017) - In light of where the TV show has elected to go with the Bernie Wolfe character, this is now technically a 'slight AU' or 'canon divergent' story series. Everything after s18 episode 36 'Missing You Already' is considered to have not happened.]

    Major Berenice 'Bernie' Wolfe, former patient on Darwin, has worked enough shifts at Holby City hospital to be known as much for her brusqueness and blunt bedside manner as she is for her surgical skill and calm under pressure. Some days, the only silver lining is that her private life is now, thanks to the divorce being finalised, considered 'old news'.

    But that's not a life, and she didn't fight her way through to this point in her life in order to stop living... so she starts on her new life in Holby which isn't actually that different from her old life in Holby except, once you look past the beret and the bark, she's actually not that different.

    And for that, Alex is very, very grateful.

    {Warning - I like happy endings, but am not adverse to a little bit of drama along the way...}
