Fan-fic 6: The End.

It's been immeasurable fun.

It's been a memorable summer.

It's been a marathon of planning, writing, re-writing, editing, scrapping and re-starting, of dreaming and noting, spell-checking and copying and pasting.

This has been The Summer of Fan-Fic.

It's over now. The weather's just turned this past week, and all the way through writing the most recent short story concerning my favourite Napoleonic Wars hero, it's been obvious that this has been my last Richard Sharpe fan-fic.

When I wrote the first one, Sharpe's Pits, just a few months ago, I thought it'd be just the one. But things spilled over and carried on in me head, and I needed another vehicle. Sharpe's Tea were it.

And so things went on. Until the last one, this one, Sharpe's Nerve.

I'm honestly sorry to believe that I'll be putting me notebook away in me drawer, that I'll be archiving the WriteRoom and NVU files, transferring em to CD for posterity - but not use.

"God save Ireland, but it's a sad thing to see."

Any last words from our hero himself?

"Just get on wi' it, lass."

Fair enough.

For the last time, here on LiveJournal or anywhere else, I give you...

I'm going now before I blub like a girl.

Thank you for sharing these labors of love with us. I truly appreciate it. I think I'm gonna savor this one and not read it yet. (does that make sense?) Although I hear it calling me...."read me....read me....."

No more Sharpe fic from the Mardy Bum? That's not right. *blubs like a girl*

Wonderful, just bluddy wonderful! Sean, Sharpe and Bernard should be proud!

I would just love to see these produced but time travels on and I doubt they would do it :(

Thank you so much for providing such wonderful stories!

Why, thank you so much for that.... I do kinda think they lend themselves more to TV than Bernard's novels, though...

Or is it just the thought of seeing em in flesh and blood rather than the printed word?


Cheers m'dear ~

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your stories. I had bookmarked your site a while ago, but for some reason never got around to reading them until recently. They were a joy to encounter and they seemed to fit right in with Sharpe's world. Wonderful job!
