Summary: After Gill's retirement, she and Julie must negotiate the balance between Julie's continuing career and their relationship.

That brings this year's word count up to a paltry 4927. Ouch. Here's to more words in 2016, or at least no fewer.

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 [ 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:

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?

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

Title: Saturday Night and Sunday Morning
Author: [personal profile] tellitslant
Fandom: Scott & Bailey
Characters/pairing: Gill Murray, Julie Dodson, Janet Scott; background Gill/Julie
Rating: General
Word count: 4400
Notes: Many thanks to [personal profile] soupytwist for her keen Mancunian eye. This was originally begun as a prompt for [personal profile] sophia_gratia's birthday and finished for mine, so, thematic! As this was begun before s4 aired, it plays fast and loose with the show's timeline - but then, so too does the show, in places.
Warnings: None.
Summary: "I don't want to run the risk of getting drunk like someone I know did at her fortieth and run up and down the back garden topless at midnight in front of her few remaining guests singing 'I Am Sixteen Going On Seventeen.'" In the aftermath of Gill's birthday, Janet and Julie have a heart-to-heart.
