Title: Everything The War Calls Out Of Us 2/2
Authors: [livejournal.com profile] foxtales & [livejournal.com profile] cocking_about
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] kikiriki23
Fandom: Top Gear
Genre: Gen, WWI AU
Characters: Richard, James & Jeremy
Rating: R
Word Count: ~17,000
Warnings: Language, violence and gore.
Disclaimer: Although an attempt was made to be somewhat historically accurate regarding the major events surrounding the Battle of Bourlon Wood, this is a fictionalised account and cannot be taken as truth. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead is totally intentional but completely unauthorised. No money is being made from their names and likenesses.

Summary: Jeremy laid back as well, his head spinning a bit and not just from his wound. Greasy, tasteless food, toxic mud, an enemy that could stumble across them at any moment, seam squirrels and rats and flies and stench, and milk tablets, for god's sake. He wasn't a religious man, but he found himself praying they found the Allied lines, and soon.

Authors' notes: Enormous thanks to the mods of [livejournal.com profile] rpf_big_bang for all their hard work in putting this challenge together! [livejournal.com profile] foxtales and I also want to thank [livejournal.com profile] tarteaucitron so, so much for her excellent beta work and Britpick (even though Top Gear's hardly her favourite), and [livejournal.com profile] elmathelas and [livejournal.com profile] msilverstar for the additional and invaluable help in the beta department.

Title: Surfacing 2/? WIP
Author: Pip
Rating: this chapter PG for a few bad words
Wordcount: this chapter 4,530
Warning: AU, angst, drama, h/c
Summary: Principal Lighthouse Keeper William Boyd has a lonely existence as he watches over the storm-tossed seas from Dubh Artach Lighthouse. What happens when the sea deposits chaos on his doorstep in the form of Dominic Monaghan?

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] tigertale7 for holding my hand through this whole thing and beta'ing along the way, to [livejournal.com profile] giddy_london, [livejournal.com profile] celtprincess13 and [livejournal.com profile] hyacinth_sky747 for the fantastic beta jobs, and to [livejournal.com profile] vensre for some last minute icon help! Most of all, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] voontah for the original idea and the song. None of this would have happened without her. ♥

Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] monaboyd_month, but it wound up being longer than I could finish in such a short time. It is therefore a WIP.

How can I possibly keep my wits intact on three hours of sleep a day, run up and down those bloody stairs and keep the light all night? )

But before the fic, a song! No, this is NOT a songfic. However, Ready For The Storm by Dougie MacLean was definitely inspiration both on the subject, and for my mood while writing. Download, listen, enjoy! Consider it a one-song soundtrack. Let me know when the link no longer works, and I'll re-upload.

It had been three days and fourteen hours since the lighthouse tender Pole Star had begun to sink in a freak summer storm. )
