Half Past The Point Of No Return

Title: Half Past The Point Of No Return
Author: murphybabe

Artist: giseerouchon
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes, please
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 30,000
Warnings (highlight to read): There is a scene of apparent dub-con at the start. There are references to alcoholism. Patsy is not underage in the UK.

Summary: Trust. Bodie and Doyle have no problems with trust on the job and in their relationship – until Bodie makes a mistake that results in marriage and his eventual departure from CI5. Without Bodie, Doyle struggles and Cowley arranges his secondment to Scotland Yard to work on a major operation. Quite by chance, Bodie is involved in this operation but, down on his luck and sadly out of condition, he tries to help his former partner and is hurt. Doyle rescues him and takes him away to recover but Bodie leaves again, resulting in Doyle's marriage and eventual resignation. Some years later Bodie tracks Doyle down to make amends. Doyle has renounced his previous life and is living on a smallholding in the wilds of Derbyshire, solitary, ascetic and self-sufficient. Can they get back together? Or is the trust irrevocably broken?

Notes: Thanks to my wonderful artist, GiseeRouchon, who has captured so brilliantly exactly what I was trying to express. Thank you also to my beta, the amazing MoonlightMead, who made this fic infinitely better and indeed, encouraged me to carry on when I would have given up. Thanks also to MinoriK for providing exactly the right things for Shusai to say, and to the Mods for putting so much work in to make the Big Bang happen again, and for everyone who helped and encouraged along the way.

Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Warnings: Mostly SFW, but you might like to hurry past the second pic... ;-)

Notes: Heartfelt thanks to murphybabe for writing a gorgeous story that gave me so many ideas for pictures that I couldn't possibly make them all in time, and for being there on the end of an email when needed. Many thanks also to the Mods for helping to keep this fandom alive and thriving after all these years- you all do a fantastic and efficient job.
As a first-time Big Banger I was in a muddle of some kind or another for a lot of the time, but hopefully we have made it through to the other side, and it was definitely an experience that I'd love to repeat next year. Maybe even with a bit less muddling.. ;-)
