Author has written 22 stories for Silent Witness.

Hello

I am really enjoying hanging out in this fanfic space, but with husband, children, part time job, allotment and Sunday School Class to teach don't spend as much time here as I'd sometimes like. Please forgive me if I seem a bit slow compared to some of my esteemed and half my age colleagues!!

My top fictional couples, probably in the order I met them

Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe (Anne of Green Gables and series, L.M. Montgomery, still miffed my husband didn't like Gil as a name..)

Beatrice and Benedict (Much Ado about Nothing - William Shakespeare)

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers (always a sucker for a man that can dance)

Dempsey and Makepeace (Michael Brandon and Glynis Barber, rewatched it recently on ITV3, cheesy but the UST best ever, congratulations to them for their 20th wedding anniversary)

Joel Fleischman and Maggie O'Connell. (Northern Exposure, crazy but fun)

Emma Woodhouse and Mr. Knightley (Emma, Jane Austen, I was living in U.S.A. when the Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeremy Northam version came out "Kindly don't shoot my dogs." a wonderful reminder of home)

Harmon Rabb and Sarah MacKenzie (JAG, not the best but I was in North America)

Mulder and Scully (X files and my first taste of fanfic)

Harry Cunningham and Nikki Alexander (Silent Witness, it's only a matter of time...)

Thanks for reading

"You know," Harry says thoughtfully, leaning in closer. "Sometimes actions speak louder than words, don't you think?" And with that said he leans in even closer, pressing his lips to yours in a slow-starting, yet deep, passionate kiss.' For Dinabar xx

A follow up story from Season 10 A Body of Work. A blast from the past, Leo's still alive, Harry's not left, Nikki's still relatively new at the Lyell. Maybe in 'Another Life' it could all have been so different?

Sunday's At One Part Two reviews
Harry's on his way to New York, Nikki is in London with the promise of a weekly Skype date. As they discuss the week's events could it be that they grow closer rather than further apart? It follows along with Season 16 at times but hopefully with rather more smiles...because we need them.
