The Return of the Fan-Fic!

OK, it's done, dusted, revised, re-cut, modified and just about done to death. I'm well tired of writing now, and this will be the last Sharpe fan-fic from me... At least fer this year! I do not plan to follow these with any more, despite what I might suddenly think about ont bus ont way home tomorrow.

No more! Enough! I have a life to get back to, and stuff to do, seeing as me mates are coming over next month and me flat is somewhat lacking in home comforts right now. I have student reports to write, home study to do (me Chinese is sliding to shit these days) and a million other things I should be doing OUTSIDE rather than sitting in and writing. Except we just bought Lady Chatterley on DVD, so there's that to be gettin on with....

Anyway, all that aside, I give you:



While "Sharpe's Pits" wrote itself, this one were really hard work... I need about six months to recover...

Hope you like it. I were feeling a bit giggly when proof-reading, and decided I'd hide eight titles of Sean Bean films somewhere in the dialogue. They're not hard to find. *grin*

Please comment ~ whether you love it or loathe it dunt matter, it'd be nice to hear constructive criticism!

Peach and lube.

Bluddy marvelous! Thoroughly enjoyed it, such a shame it has to be the last one for a while - I felt like I was watched an episode on TV - your talent is wasted on kids - you could keep Sean in work for years!

Te he! could you just imagine that, standing having Sean consult you on the interpretation of the story

I could certainly find summat to keep Sean busy fer years - and maybe work filming too, arf arf...

Ta fer the comments ~ and I love yer little talking heads (remind me of Ramona, LOL!).

I'm planning on storing up any more flashes of inspiration I get, and keeping em fer the dim and distant future, in case I ever feel like writing another one... You never know, watching "Honour" again might just persuade me to think of something terribly dashing and daring fer Richard to get stuck into, LOL

Cheer m'dears!

Brilliant!!
Read it while drinking my morning cup o'tea...How perfect is that?

I laughed out loud when I came across the movie titles, esp. Essex Boys!

Very well done...=D

Quit yer whingin' and write more sharpe right NOW!!!! LOL Can't you train those kids to do your housework, decorating, grade their papers, etc? What the hell good are kids if they don't slave for ya? ROFLMAO Seriously, I'm bowing at your feet, thanking you for this wonderful fic. I could "see" Sean and the gang as I read it, and I could defintely see it on the screen. Found all 8 movies, and am also thanking you for bringing M back into Richard's life. :) (you're gonna love LC)

Ok, first, yer starting to sound exactly like me mate, which is a little worrying, LOL
Second, oooh, these film titles giving everyone trouble, like, are they?
Heheheheheeee....

To confirm: you DID have:
Silent Hill
North Country
The Dark
National Treasure
Don't Say a Word
Extremely Dangerous (I know, that one were cheating a bit!)
and Essex Boys, but the last one?

Hmm... I'll give you a clue - its in the first few chapters, and it weren't Sharpe that said it. He didn't even *think* it, LOL

Yeah, I have been hanging out with "you lot" for so many years, it's all rubbing off on me. :P Regards the movies, I sent you a couple of emails with my other two selections-Pride and Troubles. So that makes 10. But if you're counting ED and also say there's another one......Woman of no Importance perhaps? So I found 11. LOL I could also count Rifles in there as well for 12, but that's really being greedy. Double credit for my SBI research. ROFL

Ok, I have to come clean here ~ I didn't realise I'd used Pride or Troubles, and yes, the eighth one on me list was A Woman of No Importance. Yeah, I know it's a cheat seeing as how he hasn't even made it yet, but I thought it were apt fert scene...

And actually, I only brought back Marjorie fer you, LOL ~ the first draft didn't have her at all. It were just so you get a second pairing wi Sean when they make them into TV episodes, LOL

I'm just too good to you, eh?

Glad you liked it!

Awwwww....garsh....thanks! You really are too good to me! I'd better start on my weight loss plan so I'll be ready for when they do make them into movies. And I will of course insist on you as technical advisor, etc, etc. LOL (and like I said, Troubles and Pride were really stretching!) Thanks again!

Technical advisor my arse! I'll be the Char Lady, LOL, distributing hot tea and cigarettes, ;)

Mind you, costume supervisor would be alright, too. Making sure everyone as should be in uniform is in it. And out of it. :)

Cheers m'dears fer reading and commenting!
