Arcadia by Sineala  
Title: Arcadia
Author: sineala
Artist: liriel1810
Archive to Pros Lib: Not yet.
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 89,908 words.
Warnings: None needed.
Summary: To catch an unknown assassin, Bodie and Doyle head undercover on a cruise ship, posing as a couple. Aboard the ship are many people from Bodie's past, and any one of them could be their suspect. In the course of the investigation, Doyle discovers that there are a great many things he would never have guessed about Bodie's former life... and about his own feelings for his partner.

Notes: Thanks to my fellow Big Bang mods for running the challenge! Thanks to liriel1810 for the wonderful art (and especially for changing the captions with five hours notice)! Thanks to byslantedlight, londonronnie, and lysimache for various and sundry beta and Britpicking work; this story has been vastly improved by their help.

It's probably worth pointing out that this story was the very first Pros story I wrote, four years ago, and really one of the first slash stories I ever wrote at all. It has since been gathering dust on my hard drive because I didn't know what to do with it. I haven't edited it too much, honestly, but I figured you all would probably enjoy a chance to read it anyway. (So if there's anyone else who helped out, let me know; I may just have forgotten about it in the intervening years!)

Yay! You got it posted! It was no problem at all to change the caption. I'm glad I wasn't working today so I could change the caption so quickly.

Stay safe and dry! *hugs*

Congratulations on posting!

I did a double-take when I noticed the word count - wow, BIG! That'll keep me quiet for a while *g*

I love the artwork too - thank you both for all your hard work and for sharing it with us.

Thank you!

Ha, yeah, I couldn't really believe I wrote it either; it was pretty much the second slash story I'd written, and I didn't know what to *do* with it all. So I hid it.

Gorgeous artwork! You mentioned this story in your journal years ago but never followed up on it. So this is a special treat for me. Can't wait to read it. :-)

Aww, I am so glad that someone remembers it. Yeah, it's been sitting around since then. (Me and my finished fanfic novels, we have a small problem.) I hope you like it!

I'm so pleased that you've unleashed this monster upon the world at large at last! *g*

I enjoyed it immensely when I read it... what? Two years ago? Three? So looking forward to reading it again.

I'm pretty sure, btw, that I'll never be called upon to 'Polari-check' a fic again! LOL

mollior cuniculi capillo: doyle closeupsineala on October 29th, 2012 09:30 pm (UTC)
It took me a while, but I finally made it! And thanks for Polari-checking! :)

Also, that is the most appropriate icon ever.

Looking forward to it!

Just to tell you that I'm *so* glad you finished this! I started reading yesterday and couldn't put it down, it's just my kind of fic and the distraction was very much appreciated. I shall be re-reading it for a very long time to come, so thank you :)

This was the first Big Bang fic I've had the chance to read, I hope they're all so good!
mollior cuniculi capillo: doyle closeupsineala on October 30th, 2012 07:27 pm (UTC)
Wow, thank you. I'm so flattered that you liked it enough to reread it already.

This was a wonderful scenario to read. You did a great job. I always like some mystery with my lads. Thanks for posting.
