Here the Whole World by izzie, art by Lorraine  
Title: Here the Whole World
Author: izzie izzie7
Artist: Lorraine artconserv
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 20250
Warnings: No warnings apply

Summary: The story is set post Discovered in a Graveyard. When Bodie returns from an undercover operation that has reluctantly taken him away from his convalescing partner for a month, he discovers that all is not well. Doyle's recovery has come to almost a complete halt, so to get him back on track, and ultimately back on the squad, Bodie moves in with him. But it takes a stay on the edges of the Peak District for matters to come to a head.

Notes: This story was largely written some years ago for publication in a zine which never saw the light of day, and my beta was the lovely callistosh65. It has been revised and extended since then, so any remaining mistakes, inconsistencies or typos are entirely down to me.

I was extraordinarily fortunate to have Lorraine as my artist, whose work complements (and probably outshines) the story. She has many more outstanding illustrations of Bodie and Doyle on her website, so do pay a visit and leave feedback. Her Professionals page can be found here.

Finally, a big thank you to all the mods for giving up so much of their time to organise this BB, and for being unfailingly patient and helpful!

The artwork is really lovely. I've downloaded the fic and added it to my pile of reading to be done. Thank you!

The artwork is beautiful, isn't it? I was very lucky that Lorraine picked my story.

My pile of reading is so high it's intimidating, but I'm hoping next week may be less frantic and I can start enjoying all the other stories here!

Congratulations on a successful posting. Lorraine's art is stunning and I look forward to reading your story. Thank you for participating. :)

Your phrasing is so apt - it took me hours this morning to get it all together & properly posted without invalid markup errors and goodness only knows what littering the screen evry time I previewed it. It was such a relief finally to get it posted! I especially didn't want to mess up the links to Lorraine's site, because the illustration is so beautiful it deserves to be seen by as many as possible.

I must be a dill because I couldn't work out how to get onto Lorraine's slash page to leave a comment so I'll post it here. ***shakes head***

It is an amazing piece of artwork Lorraine, truly beautiful, the colours and the features are amazing. Congratulations on a wonderful piece and I am sure Izzie is thrilled with it. Izzie, I hope to read your story on my upcoming days off. Your blurb has me itching to read. *g*
izzie7izzie7 on October 21st, 2011 12:25 pm (UTC)
I sympathise with your technical problems (see my comment above!), and of course you are right -I was thrilled with the art.
Hope you enjoy the story when you find time. I've only managed to read a couple so far, and am looking forward to finding time to catch up.

Congratulations on getting it posted. I know it's been a long journey for you. :D

I'm terribly behind on my reading but I look forward to it.
izzie7izzie7 on October 21st, 2011 12:19 pm (UTC)
Thank you! It's nice finally to have found it a home :)

I am so behind on my reading it's embarrassing, but I'm hoping to have some time next week finally to catch up and enjoy everyone's amazing efforts.

Gorgeous artwork!

Like everyone else (it seems), I'm hideously behind in reading the BB fics, so I wanted to thank and congratulate you now *g* I'm looking forward to reading it immensely.

Thank you - hope you enjoy it when you get to it!

How lovely to see this here! And wow, what stunning art, as always, from Lorraine. Can't wait to revist this and enjoy it all over again.
izzie7izzie7 on October 24th, 2011 03:50 pm (UTC)
It was so long ago, it must have felt like reading something new, but I remember you did sterling work on it, so thanks again :)

Oh what a beautiful piece of art *swoons*. I will be rushing off to read the story now, thank you so much!!
izzie7izzie7 on October 24th, 2011 03:02 pm (UTC)
It is stunning, isn't it? She is very talented. Hope you enjoy the story!

Congrats on posting, am so looking forward to reading this.

Thank you for letting me house it here!

Wow - I stared reading to get a flavor, figuring I'd get back to it later, and next thing I knew I was finished.

*Really* well written. I think you got the lads down like nobody's business, and it's a really believable premise.

And Lorraine's artwork is incredibly detailed. I looked through her site earlier - she's definitely a fan :D and she's definitely got a great eye.

Thanks very much for writing / drawing / posting!
izzie7izzie7 on October 24th, 2011 03:05 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I've always thought Doyle's recovery would be pretty lengthy, & sick pay doesn't last for ever.

Lorraine's art is incredible, isn't it?
ci5matesci5mates on October 23rd, 2011 09:34 am (UTC)
I found a few hours and settled down for a very enjoyable read, not able to put the story down until the end. I can so imagine how down someone would get after being so physically active and then being invalided. Bodie had a lot of patience but in the end even he had to let fly. I love h/c and this had it in spades! Thanks.
izzie7izzie7 on October 24th, 2011 03:49 pm (UTC)
I'm glad the story held your attention. I think most people get exasperated in the end, however much they love & understand what someone else is going through, but sometimes that can be the turning point. Thanks for commenting!
murphybabemurphybabe on October 24th, 2011 01:27 pm (UTC)
This was great. In many stories, and indeed in the episode, Doyle bounces back from the shooting so easily. Your fic was beautifully written and describes Bodie's care for his partner so well - and thank you for giving it a happy ending! Youlgreave is about ten minutes' drive from me, so I was amused wondering which cottage! Nicely illustrated too.
izzie7izzie7 on October 24th, 2011 03:01 pm (UTC)
What a coincidence, that you live so near Youlgreave! I based the cottage on one we stayed in several times, right at the bottom of the hill by the bridge. It's such a beautiful place, I couldn't resist. I'm so glad you enjoyed the story & thanks for commenting.

Looking forward to this fic. I love post DIAG stories. Great art.
izzie7izzie7 on October 29th, 2011 10:26 am (UTC)
Hope you enjoy it!

I loved it! Truly excellent writing - such 'effortlessly' smooth prose (whihc means the reader makes no effort and the writer has worked very hard indeed), and a thoughtful character study. The plot is a credible aftermath to DiaG and the fact that the final scenes took place in my local Peak District was just the icing on the cake.

Your artist is brilliant - I already know her work but was pleased to be reminded of it and to see how she added to your work.

Thank you both, so much!
izzie7izzie7 on October 29th, 2011 10:30 am (UTC)
Thank you! I do aim for a writing style which is invisible, so it was really nice to hear that I succeeded.

I seem to have struck a hitherto unsuspected vein of Peak District Pros fans with this! I'm in Sussex, but I love that whole area.

Lorraine's work is amazing - I couldn't believe my luck when she chose my story to illustrate :)
andreaandreathelion on October 27th, 2011 03:13 pm (UTC)
Wonderful and believable written story, thank you! :)
And the artwork is just breathtaking, Lorraine is really a master in this!
izzie7izzie7 on October 29th, 2011 10:31 am (UTC)
I'm so glad you enjoyed the story as well as the beautiful artwork!
angel_ci5: bodie09angel_ci5 on October 30th, 2011 01:08 pm (UTC)
This sounds wonderful. I'm so behind with BB, but I've downloaded your story and look forward to reading it! And the art is gorgeous! Thank you!
izzie7izzie7 on October 30th, 2011 09:07 pm (UTC)
Me too! I'm so behind it's embarrassing, so no problem at all. I just hope you enjoy it when you get to it.
