Point of View by PFL  
Title: Point of View
Author: PFL (msmoat)
Artist: norfolkdumpling
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes, of course!
Genre: Slash, of course!
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 35,295 (or thereabouts)
Warnings: None needed

Summary: You'll be paired off, and from then on, you're the Bisto Kids. The evolution of a partnership, as told through the perspectives of Bodie, Doyle, and Cowley. Bodie’s cool, self-confident, and a loner — until he’s not. Doyle’s passionate, idealistic, and in search of a deeper connection — until he’s not. Cowley just wants his best team to be efficient and effective — and if they would keep themselves alive, he’d appreciate it. Bodie believes caring makes you vulnerable; Doyle believes caring makes you stronger. What happens, then, when together they have to deal with the likes of Charlie Turkel, Franz Myer, Preston, Kathie Mason, Coogan, Wakeman, Mayli, Ojuka, and each other? Is it possible to step outside your own viewpoint, and see the truth through another’s eyes?

Notes: Thanks, as always to the incomparable elizabethoshea and O Anonymous One. I would also like to thank everyone who cheered and supported and encouraged me through this whole, somewhat angsty process on LJ and DW. You all really went above and beyond. Thank you!

norfolkdumpling did the fantastic, gorgeous art work for this story. She is brilliant and wonderful and I was thrilled to be able to work with her.

Finally, thank you to the mods of ci5_boxoftricks. You all are fabulous and very patient!

Thank you! We did it! \o/!! The artwork really is fabulous, isn't it? norfolkdumpling is just amazing.

I am so looking forward to being able to actually the other stories now. Like you, I've been putting it off until I posted. Well, hah! Done! *g*

Good luck to you!

Well *done*! I'm a slow reader but I will get there and I'm really looking forward to it!
msmoatmsmoat on October 27th, 2012 05:23 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I am relieved to have it finished, but also missing that particular world I created, in a way. *g*

I am so looking forward to being able to read the other BB stories now. I've been saving them. Like you, I'm a slow reader--I savor things!--so it will take time, but I'll get there.

YAY! I can't wait for everyone to read your story and love it as much as I do!

It was so good to work with you Petal ♥
msmoatmsmoat on October 27th, 2012 05:26 pm (UTC)
Heh. Well I reckon if they don't like the story, it'll be okay, because they'll be so distracted by the fabulous art work that it won't matter!

I so enjoyed working with you! I've always loved your artistry, and to watch as you applied it to my story? Really wonderful. Thank you!

And I can't wait to enjoy story and art together. :-)

Well done and mighty twirling to you both! It looks fabulous, the artwork is stunning... are you two talented, or what? *g*

Thank you both - I can't wait to read; except I'm determined to read everything in order this year, and I read slowly... But the anticipation is wonderful *g*

msmoatmsmoat on October 27th, 2012 06:07 pm (UTC)
Heh. Well, I'm a slow reader, too, and I also tend to start from the beginning, so...yeah, I'm with you! When you do get to it, I hope you enjoy it!

The artwork is amazing. norfolkdumpling is so very talented. I couldn't be happier with it!

Arrgh for work! I'm relishing the fact that I actually have two days off in a row this weekend! What a concept. *g*

I hope the day goes quickly, and I really hope you enjoy my story when you get to it!

Yay, posting! See, and now all the stress seems worthwhile, doesn't it? :D

msmoatmsmoat on October 27th, 2012 08:01 pm (UTC)
Heh. Well...we'll see what people say when they actually have time to read the story! But, yes, it is a relief!

I know you know how wonderful norfolkdumpling is. But, really, she was so patient with me this morning while I was trying to format and link everything correctly! And now, here I am...thinking about what next I can write. *g*

Ooh I see more than just a test of wits on the way for the lads! Congrats on posting! :D
msmoatmsmoat on October 28th, 2012 03:28 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad to have finished it! Definitely more than just a test of wits for the lads, but then, you'd expect nothing less from them, really. (And, ooh, that's a lovely shot of Bodie in your icon there.)

I hope you enjoy the story! I know you'll enjoy the artwork--it's gorgeous.
sw33n3ysw33n3y on October 28th, 2012 05:43 am (UTC)
I know I'll enjoy the story and as soon as I'm finished, I'll let you know how much. :D

I've been to visit ND's beautiful collages too. Aren't they lovely!

Oh, glad you like the icon. I made it a little while back and use it as my default.

I'll definitely read this one. And the artwork is stunning, a brilliant idea, accurately executed, technically perfect! :-)
msmoatmsmoat on October 28th, 2012 12:12 pm (UTC)
I know! I couldn't be happier with the artwork. It integrates brilliantly with the story as well...but it's mostly just really lovely to look at. *g*

I hope you enjoy the story!
