Title: Echoes From The Past
Author: Marjoram Max
Artist: Fairey Fox
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: GEN
Characters/Pairing: Bodie, Doyle
Word count: 24,333
Warnings: None

Marty Martell and Bodie weren’t exactly friends – in the intelligence game friends were a luxury most couldn’t afford – but they went back a long way together. So when Marty was murdered, it felt personal.

Doyle’s convinced that the stockpile of weapons found near Marty’s body holds the key to his murder.

The circumstances surrounding Marty’s killing, however, lead Bodie to a completely different conclusion, one that involves a family tragedy over 100 years before.

Now all Bodie has to do is convince his partner that things really do go bump in the night!

My sincerest thanks go to:

anna060957 for another excellent last minute beta job
Fairey Fox for the brilliant, atmospheric artwork which suits the story so well

Title: Great House, Secret Spaces
Author: golden_bastet
Artist: loxleyprince
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word Count: 26,558
Warnings: slashy stuff and a couple of murders
Summary: Born of an Egyptian mother and unknown father, Raymond Doyle had fought his way to a spot on Pharaoh's elite police force only to be shunted aside after exposing the corruption of his superiors.

He finds himself plucked up by a Lord Cowley, seconded to his mysterious organization, to investigate the appearance of odd amulets around the city. An assignment, not likely to amount to much, but perhaps enough for him to redeem himself elsewhere.

Lord Cowley teams him with a WAP Bodie, an ex-army charioteer also seconded to the organization. As arrogant as he is good-looking, this Bodie is almost impossible to talk to, much less work with, and the assignment meant to salvage Doyle's career is off to a poor start. Doyle finds his next fight with this Bodie: they are polar opposites, barely tolerate each other – but then their minor assignment leads to murder, and mayhem, and something much bigger than either had imagined... in more ways than one.

Inspired by real events (!).

Notes: Great thanks to my beta, solosundance and my artist loxleyprince who have done a wonderful job of encouraging me to keep going during some extremely rough patches (NOT THE STOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAATS). I was very lucky to have them on my side.

Also would like to thank the comm, and the fandom, and Brian Clemens / Mark One for the characters and the company. :D

There are background notes immediately after the story, but placing them here would be spoiling, so...

Title: Here Be Monsters
Artist: sc_fossil aka kat-byrd
Author: agent_talis
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Warnings: None

Notes: Thanks to agent_talis for being tolerant of my efforts to create art. I am not an "artist" but I do get these pictures in my head while reading. This is what I saw when reading this fine story and agent_talis was okay with them! She is a trooper. :)

Special thanks to the mods of this year's Big Bang. They took on a big task and did a super job of it. You guys are special!

Also a head's up to giseerouchon. She is a fabulous artist. Go and look! Her art inspired my story from year's Big Bang. :)

Title: Here Be Monsters
Author: Agent_Talis
Artists: GiseeRouchon and scfossil
Archive to ProsLib: Yes, please.
Genre: Slash
Pairings: Bodie/Doyle
Word Count: 34'520
Warnings: Graphic depictions of violence
Summary: After their colleague is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Bodie and Doyle are plunged into an underworld that they never knew existed. London is threatened by a brewing turf war and the agents are suddenly strangers in a familiar land. Add in the presumed drug-assisted suicide of one of Doyle's informers plus Cowley's cagey behaviour, and you have a situation way above their pay grade.
Magic isn't real... right?
Notes: A huge thank you to the Big Bang mods for all their hard work. There wouldn't have been a Box of Tricks without you. Thanks also has to go to my two fantastic artists for putting up with my internet problems and my general disorganisation.

Title: Sigh for the Prophet’s Paradise
Author: Dawnwind
Artist: Doyleoncanvas, unbelievable2
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle, Lewis/Hathaway
Word Count: 64,573
Warnings: none
Summary: The Professionals updated to 2010, crossover with Inspector Lewis. Doyle goes undercover as a student to ferret out a terrorist cell in Oxford University. Bodie provides liaison with the Oxfordshire police but will a murder muck up CI5’s investigation?

Notes: So many thanks to everyone who helped with this story—which grew more complicated the more I worked on it. To sc_fossil and Wightfaerie for editing and Brit checking. To Suzan Lovett for her editing and knowledge of Muslim religious customs—and encouraging me to write Lewis and Hathaway. To the fantastic artists—Doyle on Canvas for her wonderful vid and unbelieavable2-- who not only created fantastic art for the story, but had been a student in Oxford and could provide countless useful details. Last of all to the CI5 bag of Tricks com in continuing this great Big Bang tradition, supporting, cajoling and a bit of tough love to get all of us to write more stories.
