thedesignracoon asked: I'm kind of 2 years late on the bandwagon, but I just read Roses of Picardy and just had to let you know how much I enjoyed it! Stunning piece of work... I was in tears at the end of the epilogue, but it was so worth it! Thank you so much for sharing your work =) all the best, TDR

Hi there! Sorry for the delay, I’ve been away from tumblr for a while. I’m delighted that you liked Roses of Picardy - the other day I realized it’s been almost two years since I’ve finished the fic and I still haven’t been able to get Jim and Jamie out of my head and heart, I love them so much. It’s honestly such a thrill to hear it’s enjoyed, I can’t tell you. Thank you, thank you! :D

dotheynow asked: Ah, a wonderful read. I normally avoid fics that take place in war times because, you know, major character death. And I never read in fandoms where I'm not familiar with the source material. But since it was you and Emma recommended it, I'm glad I did. I was really worried about Philip for a while (good job there for making him so very threatening without being over the top) and I loved how Jim took control in the end, go Jim!

Thank you so much! I understand the major character death thing for sure - I don’t like to read it myself. I’m so very happy that you enjoyed it - thank you so much for reading, and for the nice comments! :D

Anonymous asked: Now I want to read that Picardie fic, too, I love your writing! I've never seen War Horse though.. Is it necessary for context and understanding?

Thank you so much!

So the basic context of BC and TWH’s appearance in the film is that they’re both officers in one of the first British regiments to cross into Europe and fight on an open field of battle. Their cavalry regiment is woefully unprepared for the relatively high tech munitions of the German army. The two of them are in the movie for only a few minutes, but it was tantalizing enough for me to try to invent a little backstory and then a canon-divergent fic featuring their characters.

I hope you enjoy it if you decide to read it. The fic is here:  http://archiveofourown.org/works/415197/chapters/689767

Thank you again! :D

incredifishface asked: I just finished your Roses of Picardy and I'm tears, goddamn you! I forgot it was fanfic. The way you fleshed out the characters and their speech and their feelings took me back in time. You peppered it with nibbles of truth about love and war where other published authors rarely manage. I'm in awe at your talent. I'm a Fan of yours with a capital F. Now off you go, where's my weekly Method Act?? I need more Hiddlesbatch!!

Oh my goodness, thank you so much! I absolutely loved writing that, and I think it’s in my top three of everything I’ve written. :D You’re so kind!

Ack, I wish I could post Method Act this week, but I’ve had an intensely busy one, unfortunately. My job had me hopping, and I’ve been nuts hunting for a car to replace the one that died. I haven’t even blocked the next chapter, which is super-frustrating. I’m so sorry, but I promise to get the next one out as soon as I can! Thank you so much for your wonderful, wonderful comment. <3

I got two comments on Roses of Picardy in two days! I know that doesn’t sound like a big deal but it is to me. It’s an even smaller fandot than Cabin Pressure, and so it’s especially nice to get comments on something so obscure. I’m beaming, like someone’s mum. :)

Last year I had planned to write a Jamie/Jim holiday fic, but life got in the way, in a big way. This year, nothing will stop me. I will have my romantic, sentimental, epic WW1 homo fic, by God.

"Roses of Picardy"
Bobby Darin
Oh! Look at Me Now (1962)

This is a…swingin’ version of Roses of Picardy. “And the roses are gonna die in the summertime…shoobie-doobie-do!”

It’s giving me some weird AU thoughts. Jamie is an officer in MI6 and Jim is the groovy hep cat suspected of feeding information to the Communists. Jamie has to go undercover as a nightclub owner to ferret out all Jim’s secrets. He manages quite nicely indeed.
