Big Bang 2012: Tender Comrade by Murphybabe

Title: Tender Comrade
Author: murphybabe
Artist: bodiecuddle
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 26,400
Warnings (highlight to read): One het paragraph

Summary: Bodie and Doyle have been Cowley’s top team for years now. Inevitably, this drew them together in their spare time – after all, who else would put up with the demands of CI5 and Cowley? What started off as lust and expediency has developed into a perfect partnership – until Doyle is seriously injured on the job again. Bodie and Cowley collude in finding Doyle a new role, shadowing Cowley through the gloom of Whitehall, and Bodie joins Macklin and Crane. Tensions surface, and the relationship shifts again, to settle into comfort and security. And then – disaster! Doyle is tempted by a visiting colleague from the French Surete. Bodie wants to settle down, but will Doyle confess all? How will Bodie react? Will the partnership – and their love – survive?

Notes: Thanks go to many people, starting with bodiecuddle for producing such a marvellous vid! byslantedlight made some great suggestions and I only wish I had been clever enough to write them all. inlovewithboth and sc_fossil were kind enough to beta, offering helpful suggestions and encouragement. Everyone on the Box of Tricks community was kind, encouraging and helpful to such a newbie, and goldenbastet offered Snookums in a discussion about what the lads might - or might not - call one another. I couldn't resist. Finally, thanks go to the wonderful mods for making this all happen.
