Pro's BB2012: Full Circle  
Title: Full Circle
Author: merentha13
Artist: snailbones
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 18600
Warnings: none

Summary: After the disastrous ending to an op, Doyle leaves CI5 and Bodie. But fate and George Cowley are not done with him. While working for Scotland Yard, Doyle’s undercover assignment unravels and he finds himself reluctantly working with Bodie again. As their investigation progresses, Doyle finds that he may be able to do more than bring this set of villains to justice; he may also be able to close a painful chapter from his past.

Notes: A big “Thank You” to anna060957, moonlightmead piskiedust, firlefanzine, andsc_fossil! You all helped make this a much better story and I appreciate it! And a "Ta" to everyone else I "bothered" along the way for opinions and support. Thanks to everyone who reads it - I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Thanks to the mods of this years BB. Another terrific job, mates!

Hugs and awe to snailbones for fantastic art, that really captures the feel of the story. You’re amazing, m'dear!

Fantastic!

I won't say more, don't want to spoil anyone.
But you know what I mean. :-)

A great story!
And the art from Snailbones is beautiful! Especially the last one... ;-)

Thank you both!

Yay! Thanks luv, but it's all totally down to you - you've written a fab story, and the piccies were dead easy because of it. (And do we admit what time we were both up this morning to get the posting right?) I'm a little worried though - am I supposed to be enjoying myself this much? I blame you! *big hugs*

merentha13merentha13 on October 2nd, 2012 06:00 pm (UTC)

Oh this sounds brilliant I can't wait to have a read, and can't wait to get home from work so I can look at AO3 and the art as well.

Congratulations to you both. The story is (still) a briliant one, and the artwork beautiful, moody and just the right side of chilling for the text.

I'm just catching up on congratulatory comments! I haven't had time to read this yet--I'm carving out time to finish my own story, alas--but I will! I did scroll through the art work though... Oh! Gorgeous stuff snailbones!! I love the color tones and the balance...and the subjects, of course. *g* The story sounds intriguing, too. I shall be reading as soon as I can. But in the meantime: Congratulations to you both!

Thank you (and much pompom waving for your story too *\o/* ).

I loved Full Circle, and working with merentha has been wonderful... plus I got to play with the pretty men. Win!

Wow!
You know already that I think this is a brilliant story, beautifully written with wonderful insights into the boys' characters. A well thought-out plot, excellent scene-setting and a happy ending! Whatever help you might have had along the way, it's your story. I had no problems reading this more than once and it's already on the Kindle as a keeper.

Congratulations on the fantastic artwork - it's lush!!! Especially that last one!

Well done!

Re: Wow!
Thanks so much for these kind words and all your help along the way! It's a pleasure working with you! The artwork is fantastic - I thought snailbones caught the mood of the story with the colours and textures and pictures she chose - and everyone seems to especially like the last one - hmmm... *g*
