Secure Yourself To Heaven by LilyK (sc_fossil)  
Title: Secure Yourself to Heaven
Author name: LilyK sc_fossil
Artist name: ankaree
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 61,789
Warnings: Supernatural and religious themes, crossover with Apparitions
Summary: Pulled out of semi-retirement and put on his first undercover case in many years, Ray Doyle finds out that battling demons is very different for him now than it used to be. He must pretend to be someone he surely isn't; he must to prevent an assassination; he must save someone he dearly loves; and he must try and survive intact, body and soul.

This story is dedicated to my good friend, C. L. Miles (known in fandom as Ankaree). I love her and appreciate her. She's been a devoted friend in fandom and RL for almost ten years. She is also the artist who did the fabulous manips for this story.

I want to thank the following people for their help and encouragement while I wrote this story and who helped edit it, each in their own wonderful and extremely useful fashion: C.L. Miles clmiles, Dawnbeth dawnebeth, JoJo solosundance and Sally Fell londonronnie. They went above and beyond helping me get this story into shape. Thank you, my friends.

I want to thank my fellow moderators in The Professionals Big Bang 2011: Draycevixen draycevixen, Norfolkdumpling norfolkdumpling, P. R. Zed przed, Saintvic saintvic and Sineala sineala. It was a wild ride but we worked together like bread and jam. Or is that Bodie and Doyle?

This is my first Big Bang. I loved writing for this project and I love writing for this fandom. It rocks!

Any mistakes are my own. Don't blame my editors! They took big pointy sticks to me and I tried to behave. Any feedback is welcome either here or at my email address: chakbalam at gmail dot com.

YES! I'm all glee-happy-bounce-clappy hands!

Can't wait to start reading it, though I'll have to because you know - RL, children to feed, cooty cats to care for... but later later, it's mine all mine.
