Yuletide this year was surprisingly difficult! It took a lot of to-ing and fro-ing and reworking - I scrapped a good 4000 words and restarted at one point, quite late, and I'm a little bitter about that, though I have hopes that some of those ideas may make it into another fic at some point.

I was assigned to write Scott & Bailey fic for [livejournal.com profile] featherxquill, and though she gave a wide range of prompts for all of the nominated characters, I knew that what she'd love most was some Gill/Julie:

at least we can hold each other (1561 words) by kathryne
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Julie Dodson/Gill Murray
Summary: Two people who've known each other as long and as well as Julie and Gill have many ways to communicate.

...which is a little porny story riffing on both Julie's wardrobe and the way that Julie and Gill balance a personal and working relationships.

But the reason I was having trouble was because apparently what I really wanted to write was all the trauma that ensued following s3 and through s4. And, well, [personal profile] soupytwist had also requested S&B, and she is a lovely person who deserves a little treat, and who wouldn't be horribly put off by angst, so I thought I would just... write the angst and get it out of my system and gift it to someone who would appreciate it. And she did. :P And she guessed I'd written it for her, too, which means she gets to prompt a ficlet off me if she wants... :D?

Pictures of Strangers Always Looking Down on You (1874 words) by kathryne
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Julie Dodson, Gill Murray, Helen Bartlett
Summary: Like Helen Bartlett, Gill finds herself fighting to break free of others' perceptions - even those who are meant to be in her corner.

After the struggle to get these written, I'm fairly happy with both of them - there are some things I would change, but overall I think they turned out pretty okay. :D

I LOVE IT AND I AM SO TOTALLY DEMANDING THAT FICLET. BECAUSE YOU ARE AMAZEBALLS.

(I think I want... something about younger Julie. Because JULIE. and you write AMAZING Julie.)
