Personal Interests, by Hambel  
Title: Personal Interests
Author: hambelandjemima
Artist: ancastar
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 19,000
Warnings: None needed. Rated R-NC17

Summary: A dead body in the library means much more to Bodie than he dares to let on. An undercover assignment for Ray Doyle draws on skills he thought he'd finished with years previously. When the assignment is finished and secrets have been learned, can they go back to working together as before, or have the dynamics of their partnership shifted irrevocably?

Notes: First off, many thanks to callistosh65 and przed for running this marvellous Big Bang and for their patience with me. Also, a huge thank you to my artist, ancastar for her patience and the gorgeous artwork that she's done for this fic. I must also thank draycevixen for her encouragement and help along the way. Last, but not least, thank you to the cheerleaders on my flist. You know who you are! And if you're thinking to yourself, Does she mean me? then yes! I probably do! *g*
This fic is the follow on from Dark Alleys and Nameless Faces and Little Black Book which were my first two fics written in this fandom. They don't have to be read in order to make sense of this one.

*happy sigh* But does the cousin get it? Is there a sequel in sight?

I don't know if the cousin got it or not, but there's a fair chance he did, one way or another. :D

I enjoyed reading the story very much :D
Thank you!

I'm so in love with your story!
The dialogues are spot on, funny, still individual. The lads are damn sexy, they care, they are close but at the same time (told) with a professional distance that I feel is just right for their line of work. And: I immediately want to join that crowd of Cowley's boys and lasses, they are just so damn cool. Wonderful sequel to a wonderful series, don't hesitate to add more!
Thank you!

Cowley's lads and lasses are the coolest there is. Thanks for your lovely comments - it's nice to know what works well in a story :)

I've enjoyed all your shorter stories so it was a real treat to read something longer. I loved reading about the lads undercover and I loved the bonus of having a good plot which I feel complements good characterisations and relationships rather than replacing them. Thanks so much for all your time and effort in making the Big Bang happen!

Thank you for your lovely comment. I like reading longer fic myself, but I needed a nudge to get this one finished. Yay for the Big Bang *g*

I love undercover gay themes and was delighted with rentboy Doyle! Thanks for writing this!

They're one of my fave too *g* Thanks for reading!

A gripping story, very tense throughout and a lovely ending. I enjoyed reading it very much.

I really enjoyed everything about this - your lovely crisp style which is so right for the lads, and a story that made me grin and feel all unnecessary at the same time :)
