| P'tfami chapter 1 . 3/8
Poignant and heartfelt. I, too just finished(& singing along embarrassingly to) Blackpool and was surprised by being affected by the characters in the love triangle.
I like that you pointed out Peters affinity for using words to win Natalie. Ripley and Peter are similar in many ways, each thinking they are the cleverest men in the room using words as weapons. Yet Ripley concluded in the end that words and money are not enough if there isn't understanding.
Great introspective story. Thanks for sharing.

oh great im crying good job. OMG WHY COULDN'T THIS HAVE BEEN CANON? I SHIP PETER CARLISLE SO MUCH! Hey if you watched Broadchurch, you know that line where david's like "i hate this place. i hate the blah blah" and he goes on and on about the things he hates (including the air)? yeah, the exact same line is in blackpool. and in both the places, he played a detective inspector.

This is wonderful! I read this in Natalie's voice. It was so realistic, it could have been in the show and totally fit. Keep up the good work (:

Another great Blackpool fanfic. I really like your explanation of her marriage with Ripley. To be honest like Peter I didn't really understand what she was doing with him since she isn't your ordinary trophy wife (if there is such a thing). And yet she fulfills that role in Ripley life. You conveyed very convincingly how she became one without even realizing it. Love the connections you pulled between Ripley and Peter about being "bought" and lied to for different reasons and by different means. Especially this part:
"But you bought me too. Every word you say to me, every whispered promise, every calculated, loving lie you told."
Calculated, loving lie - that is great phrase for what Peter did before she discovered who he is.
And conclusion is great how love is not about buying and selling but simply mutualy shared feeling. Very good stuff.
I hope you'll write about other characters too. Or maybe a fic about something that happened after the end of series. Just a suggestion...
P.S. Waiting for that Flake now. Or if DI Carlisle doesn't want to part with if I'll just watch him eat. That's treat enough :P

I loved it... There is something so wonderful about the Peter / Natalie relationship...
Thanks for this, I could hear her in my head as I was reading it, and see Peter's face run the gamut of emotions!

I just fiished watching Blackpool today and was left with this unsettled sort of feeling, like there should have been more and there wasn't.
So thanks for writing this- it was lovely and eased by pain.

Absolutely wonderful. Really well written, and a huge treat as I just checked to see if there was any Blackpool fics on a long shot.

Awesome! I just finished watching Blackpool and loved it. And yes, Peter and Natalie were perfect for each other. I also agree with you that David Tennant needed more shirtless screen time! Great story!
