Notes: Big hugs to everyone on the ci5_boxoftricks for this wonderful opportunity to stretch my Professionals wings and write my first really long Doyle and Bodie story. Many thanks to my friend Suzanne who edited this even though she is not a Pros fan. Much love to sc_fossil who sent praise and support when I got a case of the "this is all drek." Applause to Cloudless_9193 for her lovely book cover poster.

Could I ask you to send me a copy for Proslib when you have a moment? It gets fiddly trying to copy a long story, especially in multiple parts.

I feel quite nervous being the first one. I hope it's a good lead in to the rest of the stories.

Wonderful, we're off! Thank you so much for starting everything off with such promising tantalising goodies! September looks to be awash with sunshine and Pros, what more could we ask? If only I wasn't at this boring place called work ... I shall just have to restrain myself for a few hours!
And thank you especially for the Kindle files - brilliant!
dawnebeth: men on a missiondawnebeth on September 1st, 2010 04:14 pm (UTC)
That's right, sunshine and Pros stories for a whole month. Hope you enjoy the read.

Your icon cracks me up.

Hurrah for you starting things off in style! I'm uploading this to my iPod and will have a lovely read for my commute.

BTW, if you need help with the image code, drop me a line. I see cloudless_9193 has sent the link for the image. I can give you the code to put up on your posts.

After wrestling with the coding last night, I was able to link to the cover art this morning with Cloudless' link. It's wonderful.

Thanks for all your help!

Woohoo! Dawn's posted!

Folks, this is a fabulous story! I love how Dawn writes such a good tale, giving us everything we need to follow Doyle along on this journal whilst touching on a little bit of kink for those of us (like me!) who adore stuff like that.

Great job, Dawn!

You're my guiding star, Miss Kat. Thanks for all your help and cheerleading.

Oh, it's starting! :D

I'm so looking forward to diving into your story, but it will have to wait until after the all staff meeting I'm having to attend first.
dawnebeth: men on a missiondawnebeth on September 1st, 2010 04:18 pm (UTC)
A staff meeting! I hope it is over now. Enjoy reading.

Wheee! A day off sick never felt so good! And greedy ol' me gobbled it all up, first sitting.

You're sick--too bad! I hope you'll enjoy the story tucked up in bed with a nice cup of tea.

It must have been nerve wracking being the first story up, but I'm so pleased you did it. It's an intense story, I loved getting inside Doyle's head, feeling his worry for Bodie first hand. There's some incredibly hot and firey stuff in there that certainly took my mind off my rubbish day at work, thank you so much!
dawnebeth: mixed doublesdawnebeth on September 1st, 2010 08:38 pm (UTC)
Oh, thank you for telling me what you liked and I'm glad it made your rubbish day at work better!
robeaurobeau on September 1st, 2010 06:38 pm (UTC)
Well, you certainly managed to set the bar high for the rest of us! Downloaded it onto my Kindle at an ungodly hour this morning before heading to the airport. Made the flight to Dallas pass in a flash.

I love how you put us right inside Doyle's head (and heart) - the 'ink' part had me cringing in sympathy - and the Cowley/Doyle bits were terrific. Loved the tension between them even though they both knew they were after the same outcome.

Your Bodie/Doyle relationship was so nicely written; very warm and comfortable and exactly how I see them.
dawnebeth: men on a missiondawnebeth on September 1st, 2010 08:40 pm (UTC)
Aw, you're making me blush. Thank you. I've got ink myself, so I know exactly what Doyle was going through there, lol. I'm so happy you see Bodie and Doyle the way I do!
Callisto: boxoftrickscallistosh65 on September 1st, 2010 07:16 pm (UTC)
Wheee!!!!!! There you are, my dear, and off we all go... I feel all teary and proud..*sniff* Have set this aside for bedtime tonight - can't wait.
dawnebeth: Prosdawnebeth on September 1st, 2010 08:41 pm (UTC)
You pushed the ball out there and I just got it spinning. thanks for starting us off in the first place! (and here's a tissue for you) ;-D
