The Order of Things by golden_bastet

Title: The Order of Things
Author: golden_bastet
Artists: video: inlovewithboth, stills: milomaus
Archive to Pros Lib: Um,... sure
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 16,902
Warnings (highlight to read): Major character death

Summary: One day, an obbo goes horribly pear-shaped and the unspeakable happens: Bodie loses his partner Doyle.

In the aftermath, Bodie leaves it all behind him: London, CI5, his hopes and dreams and missed chances, repairing to a small cottage in the north. He exists, doing the bare minimum, unable to even think of Doyle, much less avenge him. George Cowley, however, has other plans, sending him deep into enemy territory with a promise of vengeance in pursuit of the man who threw Bodie down the rabbit hole.

However, a straightforward tracking job becomes more complicated than Bodie had bargained for when he finds his guide is insane, their other companion may be a spy, and the terrain itself may be in league against him. His dreams bring back memories he'd long suppressed. And the vengeance he so dearly seeks may not be what he thinks it is.

Notes:In Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 film, Stalker, Stalker briefly mentions the character Teacher, also known as Porcupine, who was his mentor. This story is an episode from Teacher’s life, before he and Stalker crossed paths.

No trademark infringement here, folks. And all errors and such are solely my own.

We’re finally here! (no thanks to RL) And thanks - there are many thanks to be given.

I’d like to thank solosundance and moonlightmead for the beta duty. Stellar as always, and thanks for your patience.

Thanks to inlovewithboth and milomaus for their artistic talents (and inlovewithboth made a vid, and went back and did another one!). I appreciate very much that I had two talented people contributing and I’m honored that you chose - and liked! - my story. :D

Thanks to the ci5_boxoftricks mods for their understanding as well. Heck, just for managing all this! You ladies are gracious and awesome.

Thanks to firlefanzine for the icon. You see that we used it. :D

And last, but far from least, to my mother. We haven’t always seen eye to eye, and she’ll never hear about slash from me; but I do love her and value the time we have left together.
