Author has written 9 stories for Ashes to Ashes.

Hi, I'm Al. You might know me as 9460549 on such forums as TRA and Luigi's.

No, don't run away!

Before you ask, and many have, the 9460549? It's the Prices' 'phone number. Now you see why I elected to become a grain weevil on here instead.

Ashes to Ashes series one was solely responsible for introducing me to fan fiction and eventually prompted me to write the bulk of what you see listed below. Unfortunately the events of series two were apparently equally effective in clubbing the Muse to death and no amount of House White seemed to be reviving her. So it goes. After some months she's finally decided to turn up again though - huzzah. However, such is the state of her health she's a bit delicate and needs coddling, so I find I can't read any fanfic now and as a consequence (obviously) I'm no longer reviewing any either. So apologies if you've found your story down one reviewer right in the middle of it. It's not entirely out of choice.

NB: The chronically curious or completely confused reader of Triple Word Score may wish to view the resultant game board. For the record, Gene won comfortably. Spookily enough, by 81 points. Everything's significant...

A little oneshot crossover for anyone else who has noticed some similarities between members of our favourite CID and Ankh-Morpork’s finest. My two favourite policemen have a chat…

Alex, Gene, and so brief a one-shot that if summarised I might as well go the whole hog and tell you the story. Go on, you can spare a couple of minutes. Ah, go on.

Everyone's favourite trattoria owner is haunted by his past. Some slight Gene/Alex, but not enough to scare the phobic.

Gentlemen and Players reviews
An annual fixture for the officers of Fenchurch East turns out to be rather less sporting than first meets the eye. To err on the safe side, rated T for language and a modicum of innuendo.

Still stuck in the 80s, Alex reflects on her relationship on its two year anniversary. Very short, possibly sweet, altogether silly.
