    Summary

    Inspired by a scene in 'The Hotel Inspectors' where Basil finds a way of communicating with his hapless Spanish waiter, Manuel, through picture cards. In this fic, Polly finds that the system is working too well for her liking and misses the chaos caused by Manuel's usual incompetence - so she decides to edit one of the cards.

    A cute ficlet.

    Summary

    Everyone had heard of Fawlty Towers. Well, they'd heard of the Famous Fawlty, anyway. In fact, more people knew about Mr Fawlty than they did the hotel itself, and if someone knew the man and not his line of work, “That man owns a hotel!?” usually followed.

    Summary

    Basil didn't pretend he was romantic. Wasting time over something so trivial was alien to him, and besides, there were more pertinent things to obsess over. Like running a hotel. At least he found some comfort in pretending he was good at that.

    A study in Basil and Sybil's sex life...or lack of it.

    Summary

    An extended version of The Anniversary episode where Basil pulls through at the last minute and fixes their day. I was really upset watching this ep cos I really wanted them to have at least one properly romantic moment but noooo, so here's something I wrote at 4am to get it out of my system or else I'll be bitter about it for the rest of my life.
