Into the Fire by Callisto  
Title: Into the Fire
Author: callistosh65
Artist: firlefanzine
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Doyle/OFC, Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 16,600~

Summary: It’s just another routine undercover, right? Which is why it’s no problem if Bodie goes in instead of Doyle. Because Doyle has this girlfriend he seems to be getting serious about. And if it’s the one he left Bodie for, well Bodie’s moved the fuck on and is dealing with it all just fine, thank you.

Except... the undercover goes pear-shaped and Bodie ends up chained in a basement. Then in a coma. Then on the road to recovery with a hovering, guilt-ridden Doyle, said girlfriend, and a whole lot of issues to somehow sort out before he can get cleared to come back on duty.

Notes: Enormous thanks and hugs to my beta ancastar for her constant encouragement and support, and to izzie7 for keeping the Brit in me honest. And more of the same to my fellow mod and partner extraordinaire in this adventure przed, who took an idle bit of chit chat at a con and turned into something we’ve both had so much fun with. Darlin’, it’s been an absolute pleasure.

Also, a hearty thanks to my talented artist and new friend, firlefanzine, who did not just one but TWO beautiful covers for the story!! One is at my LJ, the other is at hers.

The advantage of being 'an artist' is that you can read the story in advance. :-)

I don't want to spoil anybody, so I just say that I love it!!!
Bodie h/c... :-)

Thank you, my dear. And for all your lovely art, too.

Look at you! All grown up and posting really long stories! And not only really long--really good!

I was lucky enough to read this one early, babe, and it's a keeper. No one captures Bodie & Doyle quite like you. Your readers are in for a treat. Congratulations, one and all!!!

Aw, thank you so much. For everything, hon. You always help me tell a better story.

Ooooo! *applause* I love it. They're so... Bodie. And so... Doyle. Great stuff.

"Bloody Doyle." Oh yes - I'm a member of that club, alright.

Thank you kindly. And aren't we all a member of that particular club??

I'm so glad you followed through on the Big Bang. So much reading to look forward to and new art for the fandom.

And the format choices are so fab!!! Now to curl up with a new Callisto story.

Great Story, Downloaded it last night and read it in one go! Bodie hurting is always a favourite and two Bodie locked in the basement in two days is enough to get a girl's heart fluttering
Callisto: B/D Purgingcallistosh65 on September 4th, 2010 04:55 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much. And nothing like locking the poor man up in a basement TWICE to get the Big Bang going on the hurt/comfort stakes..:-))

mmm, the summary is very intriguing. Can't wait to get what I'm working on to a stage where I can temporarily abandon it to read! And Firle did an awesome job on the artwork too.
Callisto: boxoftrickscallistosh65 on September 4th, 2010 04:56 pm (UTC)
I hope you enjoy it when you get to it. And Firle did indeed do a terrific job with the covers - I'm so pleased with them.

Go you for writing this. It's all loaded on the iPod and waiting to be read. I can't wait!

Thank you - and then some.. I still can't quite believe we did it, my friend.

Oh, I really liked this. This is a placeholder for the much longer comment of praise I would make, but I really liked everything about it.
Callisto: Bodie b/wcallistosh65 on September 4th, 2010 04:58 pm (UTC)
Hey, nothing at all wrong with placeholders - the sentiment is much appreciated, thank you!
Reader: Fugitive anisiskiou on September 4th, 2010 04:09 am (UTC)
Oh, fabulous!

I had some bad news today and really needed to leave RL behind for a couple of hours and your story did the trick.
How awful Doyle must have felt after switching duties with Bodie, and not even to mention the emotional entanglements complicating things during Bodie's recovery.

Thanks for writing!
Callisto: bodiecallistosh65 on September 4th, 2010 04:58 pm (UTC)
Thank you for reading! I am very pleased I could give you some relief from RL for a bit - hope all is well now xx

A deeply satisfying read (as all your fics are), thank you! And the epub-file for my ipad makes it perfect. :-)

Thank you very much. I'm very happy you enjoyed it - and aren't przed's epub-files fantastic??

I really enjoyed the story! You always manage to portray so much in a few lines, as you did here. I particularly liked Bodie in hospital having to deal with Doyle's girlfriend and his growing anger, once at Ray's that he was being treated like China.
Callisto: Bodietowelcallistosh65 on September 4th, 2010 05:02 pm (UTC)
Thank you. And I'm glad you picked out Bodie's scene in the hospital with Angela. I felt that it was really important to give them some time alone, and not to witch-ify her.
Smirrasmirra on September 5th, 2010 11:53 am (UTC)
H/C in you cappable hands is something I look forward to in the evening! Female side chracters are something I like as a plot too. And that promises of smut finally available...
Thank you!
Callisto: B/D Tea and a tartcallistosh65 on September 5th, 2010 12:26 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much - smut and h/c are kind of my default settings, so I'm glad they make you happy too.
andreaandreathelion on September 5th, 2010 06:50 pm (UTC)
*runs in*

I just finished reading and what can I say .... I absolutely loved it :D
Bodie & Doyle on the spot, h/c and well, at least both are (literally) together again :))
You actually can't ask for more :D Thank you!!!
Callisto: bdkisscallistosh65 on September 7th, 2010 04:30 pm (UTC)
Aw, thank you so much - I'm really happy you liked it and enjoyed my h/c indulgences:))

Into the Fire
I'm not sure whether I want to shower you with hugs and praise for giving us such a great story, or bewail the fact that you write so well that the h in the h/c becomes extra painful! And you weren't graphic and gore-fest about it at all, with writing like this you don't need to be; you made me feel alongside your characters so effectively that I was wincing even though I knew our beloved Bodie was safe in hospital - you make your reader really feel those nightmares, and of course that depth of feeling is what makes total sense of their behaviour - both of them. Something which is often hard to do (as a reader can see from less accomplished stories - sometimes you feel the writer is dredging frantically for obstacles to put between them); when you write, the obstacles are real and make sense and you do such a great job of showing us how they're working their way through them.

I particularly loved Bodie's relationship with Angela - a real 3D contradictory combination of liking, resentment, anxiety, appreciation - and again, easier said than done! I'm really glad you made him like her!

So double thanks, for modding and for writing! You're a total star!!!

Re: Into the Fire
Thank you!!! Really, for all your support throughout this Big Bang. I am so pleased it all made sense to you, and that the obstacles seemed real. And I'm very pleased you picked out the relationship between Bodie and Angela - I really did want to muddy the waters there. I didn't want her as simply some female to hate because she's taken Doyle's affections.

You're a star yourself, y'know.. *g*

Wonderful. I loved the natural, believable tension of this, loved all the h/c, loved...well, there's nothing I didn't love.
Callisto: Bodie b/wcallistosh65 on September 7th, 2010 04:39 pm (UTC)
Thank you kindly. I am thrilled you read and liked this, and that all the tension and h/c felt natural.
