Of Angels and Angles by Sarah K  
Title: Of Angels and Angles
Author name: tears_of_nienna
Artist name: sc_fossil
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 36,000
Warnings: None needed.

Summary: Bodie hires a mechanic to keep his ship in one piece and gets more than he expected. After a few weeks, the Capri is running better than ever, but it won't do them any good if they're not alive to fly it. (Contains science-fiction and winged-Doyle. Please suspend disbelief before entering.)


Notes: This story started out as a dream: That was weird--Doyle had wings. I gotta write this down, man. It slowly morphed from crack-fic to something with a real plot, but it never would have made it there without help from certain awesome people.

I can't thank sc_fossil enough for her fantastic art and vid. When I clicked on that vid and heard the opening chord of the music, I was just about delirious with glee. Making a vid for such a crazy AU couldn't have been easy, but she did a fantastic job.

Thanks to squeeful for cheerleading, hand-holding, and good advice. I'll be your Sherlock any day.

And thank you to the mods of the Pros BB, przed and callistosh65. Thanks so much for putting this together for us!

Thank you for a wonderful story and for letting me play! I'm so pleased you like your vid.

Just starting the story. Did catch the vid and I'm thinking that you, Ms. K, missed your true calling. It was!

Love the art and vid and now I am prepared to suspend disbelief and enter. . . . this is such fun!

I'd love to hear your thoughts when you're finished. I admit I was hooked quickly and I thoroughly enjoyed myself with this one.

It is fun! We like fun. *g*

That vid had me cracking up! Wouldn't I want to see that as a preview in the movie theater...
The story sounds different and fun, exciting! Thanks to both of you! :)

Thanks! I tried to find something interesting for each one, and this story called out for space ships! The story is different but I admit, I thought it was great. I love a story that takes me to another time and place but the lads are clearly evident.

Wow. I could not imagine how in the world you'd pull off the whole winged thing, but I was actually pulled right into the story (to the point that I began to worry about the safety of those beautiful wings). ;-D

A very enjoyable story in the tradition of Echo Answers and Suitable Gravity.

*late writer is very very late*

Thank you so much!! I'm really glad that the wings worked out for you. And I may never stop blushing now that you've mentioned the story in the same sentence as Suitable Gravity. ;)
jgraeme2007: Big Bangjgraeme2007 on September 9th, 2010 03:00 pm (UTC)
Almost forgot!
And a great job on the cover art and video!

Kat, that vid actually made me laugh out loud a couple of times.

Thanks so much, J. I'm glad it made you happy! I feel great about that.

Oh, I liked that a lot! Lots of thoughtful worldbuilding, nice characterization, good plot -- lovely! <3
Sarah K: professionalstears_of_nienna on January 13th, 2011 11:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I had so much fun building their universe that I want to go back and play in it some more. :)

I read the first sentence and was hooked, finished it in one go. I particularly loved the matter-of-fact dialogue and the way you fit Doyle's wings into the story. The banner and the vid were the perfect complement. And now I know why Bodie reminded me a bit of Han Solo in the beginning! ;-)

Re: banner and vid. I'm so happy you liked them. Thanks! Bodie would be a great Han Solo.

I love AU, and I love science fiction, so that's two points straightaway. But Doyle with wings is such a perfect image, I love it. I wonder if he can be bribed with cuttlefish? LOL.

Lovely story. Thank you so much.
Sarah K: professionalstears_of_nienna on January 13th, 2011 11:11 pm (UTC)
*late writer is soooo late*

Thank you so much! I'm so glad that you liked Doyle with his wings.

And where Bodie is involved...I don't think anything takes much bribing. ;)

What a fun and compelling story!
I read about the wings and wasn't sure what to expect, but then completely forgot about them, when the story and universe pulled me in.
When the wings made their first appearance, it fit perfectly with the flow of the story (had been wondering why Doyle was avoiding being touched etc.).
Would love for this universe to continue!

And the vid was great! Had seen it accidentally a few days before, and was looking forward to reading the story belonging with it.

Thank you! You saw it when I messed up my posts. *bangs head on floor* Luckily the vids I did are just teasers so it really didn't matter if you'd seen it. *g* I'm glad it enticed you to read.

(Those wings really did it for me. Man, who know I had a kink for Doyle with wings!)

Started the story last night but knew it would keep me up way past bedtime so I dragged myself away. Just finished it though and I really enjoyed it. I like the wings and the Keepers and Bodie still hanging out with questionable people. And you laid out the steps in their relationship very nicely with the tension and the byplay. It was a terrific read.

Thank you so, so much! I'm really glad that you enjoyed the story, and that it didn't keep you up all night. ;)

"Please suspend disbelief before entering.
*grins* I did, and I'm glad!
The story caught me right from the beginning and and there is so much banter and excitement and adventure in it, that I completely forgot that I normally don't like sci fi. (Probably because there are no extensive descriptions of technical stuff and future world scenarios!)
And even the fact that Doyle has wings fits perfectly to this Bodie, who is very protective, and he does everything to save Doyle's wings, because he understands that they are part of his personality.
I think I like it even better than Suitable Gravity.
Thanks!

Thank you so much! I'm really glad you enjoyed this--and I'm still blushing over you comparing it to Suitable Gravity!

(Probably because there are no extensive descriptions of technical stuff and future world scenarios!)

This is partly because I am absolutely hopeless when it comes to technical things--so I'm glad the absence wasn't a bad thing! :)
andreaandreathelion on September 11th, 2010 03:19 pm (UTC)
Just finished reading and that was a great AU story. I never would have thought I'd like a Doyle with wings, but I did! :D
Thanks a lot!

Oh, and the cover and vid (what a cool idea!) was as brilliant as the story! :D

Thank you! I had such fun doing it, and reading the story was a real treat. (We're all finding how much we love Doyle with wings!)

This was a fun, engaging read. Great worldbuilding and sci-fi elements that fitted and didn’t make your head spin trying to understand them! Doyle with wings was totally believable and great to imagine:) A lovely story.
Sarah K: professionalstears_of_nienna on January 13th, 2011 11:17 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm glad the sci-fi wasn't too over the top--and that the wings worked out, too!

I'm not a huge fan of AU, but this story was just down right fun! Reminded me of Firefly and the Chris Wooding's Ketty Jay stories. You did a good job of slowly developing the relationship and trust between Bodie and Doyle. I really enjoyed this....may need to rethink AU!
Sarah K: professionalstears_of_nienna on January 13th, 2011 11:18 pm (UTC)
*late writer says hi*

Thank you so much for giving this crazy AU a shot! I'm extremely flattered that it brought Firefly to mind, as that's one of my favorite shows (not counting the obvious, of course)!

This was a huge amount of fun and I enjoyed it tremendously. :-) I was so sorry when it came to an end and would love to see more adventures of these two. You did a fantastic job of creating this universe--thank you so much for sharing this lovely story. I really hope you'll do more in Pros. :-)

XXXOOO

PS The wings worked beautifully. :-)

Thanks so much! I'm so glad the wings and the scenario worked for you...and I won't rule out more adventures in this universe, either. :D
