Pros Big Bang - Any Other World, by Andromeda  
Title: Any Other World
Author: Andromeda, m31andy
Artist: Anja, roven75
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Cowley, Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 17,000

Summary: Post-Fall Girl, AU. Almost three years after Doyle was imprisoned for killing Willis, Bodie finally sets out to find out why.

Notes: This is a direct sequel to Kitty Fisher's The Pillory. With many thanks to Kitty Fisher for allowing me to play with her fantastic story. While it would probably be a good idea to read The Pillory first, I have it on good authority this can be read as a stand-alone fic.

With thanks to Anja for the fantastic cover art, to constant_muse for the amazing beta, to greengerbil for the original idea and to cuvalwen for being there when I needed her. Also with special thanks to my wonderful friendslist for their pom-pom waving and support.

Also many thanks to przed and callisto65 for running the Big Bang Challenge. We've had a lot of fun with this!

Title is from Mika's "Any Other World".

At last, Bodie opens his eyes. Always bothered me that Bodie could be so disloyal, so plain *stupid*. About time he woke up!

Thanks for that!

Yup, it also bothered me. But I wouldn't necessarily call Bodie 'stupid' for it - merely blinded by Cowley's lies.

Always made me want to slap some sense into him! LOL

Oh I am so glad you wrote this! The Pillory is a story that haunted me. I feel so much better with your resolution to the story. Just the right amount of stubbornness on Bodie's part - and Ray;s reaction at the end...beautiful. Thanks for this!

Thank you!

Bodie really had to be stubborn to fight past the web of lies Cowley had spun.

Nice Doyle icon, btw. Mmm. Doyle as a bit of rough...

Thank you for writing this. I always hated the way The Pillory ended. I feel much better now.

It is a bit of a shock, yes!

I LOVE the fact that you wrote a sequel to Fisher's Pillory. I'd have loved it just for the fact that you tackled it, let alone the fact that you did such a nice job with it. I've read the "Seven Suggestions for What Happens Next" and I really enjoyed the beginning story by Joan...Enright (maybe?) but I have to say yours is my all time favorite. Well done!
Andy: Andym31andy on September 19th, 2010 05:50 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm blushing here.

I've always had a soft spot for "Seven Suggestions for What Happens Next", but it was only when my other half cuvalwen pointed out that the fic was unnervingly like #2. But a little more serious...

You are forgiven - though just barely! It is a very intense story and I enjoyed it very much.

Thanks for satisfyingly resolving a story which always left me dissatisfied - only because the lads HAVE to end up together. :) Great story, a wonderful read.

I've never read The Pillory because I've heard enough about it to warn me off. However, with your alternate ending I might just be able to stomach it. Very well done indeed!

I love fics that depart from canon and ask 'what if?' Evil!Cowley was in one way a surprise and in another way a case of subconscious recognition - which I suppose is inevitable when you consider what the secret services have to do. (Or am I too involved with Spooks?) I loved your portrayal of Betty with her championing of Doyle and her eventual heroism. Especially the way she collapsed into Bodie's arms once she'd fired the bullet! I hope the lads can overcome the past and be perfectly happy straight away but I suspect there's another story there, waiting for you to write it! Next year's BB?
