At Bay by Jaycat  
Title: At Bay
Author: constant_muse
Artist: norfolkdumpling
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 14,140
Warnings: none given

Summary: After “Close Quarters” – Willis schemes and Cowley worries. Bodie is backed into a corner, but Doyle is right behind him.

Notes:
Many thanks to callistosh65 and przed for the Pros Big Bang, bringing together in one place such an abundance of high quality new Pros fic.

I wouldn’t (couldn’t) have joined in the Pros Big Bang if I had not had a 11,000-word WIP that was complete but for a few scenes when the challenge was launched. BB offered the perfect motivation to finish and post it. “At Bay” was planned from the outset as an exercise in writing something a little darker than my usual knock-about stories of love and happiness. I tried, really I did.

Many thanks to my generous beta greengerbil and my splendid artist norfolkdumpling. All errors and infelicities are entirely my own.

Makes a good villain, does Willis.

LOL He does that! Deserves all he gets, as well!

ARGH! I'm so far behind on the stories, but I can't wait to read this one. Really looking forward to this weekend when I can catch up.

Not as behind as me, I bet.

I'd need a two-week holiday to read them all, and that's not likely to happen.

I'm making a concerted effort to read each one the same day. Having the odd day off in between stories helps tremendously! I couldn't cope otherwise. They'd all stack up.

Thank you, Jaycat and Norfolkdumpling. Such a great invention, the Big Bang.

there was plenty of sex, sleep, good food and good beer, always in Ray’s company

Well, I think this sums up your terrific story. *g*

Seriously, I enjoyed this enormously, and I'm so glad you were able to take part in the Big Bang.

I'm glad you found the time to complete your wip fic this way!

I really enjoyed the story and it was great fun to read :D
And very clever how you added the canon bits into the story! You know, that this one should have a sequel, don't you .... ;)

This is a great story. The bath scene is particular juicy fodder for the imagination *g*.

Your description of Bodie being an 'aggressively lecherous tomcat' is a great first impression ... but we know better.

Bring on the sequel.

Well done!

A neatly woven story with some lovely scenes between the lads:) I like the way you have developed the story as a lead in to Fall Girl, it works very well.

Just last week, he’d watched his partner flirting outrageously with that soft-looking young doctor at HQ, trying to charm a fitness certificate out of him

He *was* flirting with him, wasn’t he? I’m glad someone else noticed that!

I thought there was so much to like and enjoy in your story e.g. Cowley was brilliant and I wanted to hug him! And I liked the way you made use of Bodie’s various German connections, linking them up - I thought that was a good idea which I’d never really considered before. And generally I liked the various uses you made of canon and combined them with your own original ideas to such good effect.

Really enjoyed this, thanks a lot.
