    Summary

    He doesn’t really know who initiated it but he knows he certainly didn’t stop it. His memory is hazy but he remembers how soft her skin was, how she smelled of something vaguely floral, and the soft breathy moans that filled the room. She’s gone by the time he wakes up and the next time he sees her, her eyes skate over his and they don’t talk about it.

    Summary

    Nobody, not one person in Derry, seemed to understand the meaning of the word "secret." James really should have been more careful while confiding his.

    Summary

    The James Maguire of it all had always been complicated - ever since he’d kissed her for the first time in that dusty house in Donegal, things had been complicated. It was sort of always destined to be, when you developed feelings for a close friend. Maybe when they were kids, it might have worked out, but they weren’t children anymore, and it was silly, to live a fantasy where James had waited all those years for her, silly to think that he still felt the same as he had back when they were seventeen. Erin might be fanciful, but she wasn't naive - not anymore.

    or - Erin's final year of university brings about some reflection, introspection and the realisation that maybe the reason she had never fallen in love with anyone else was because she had never fallen out of love with James Maguire.

    Summary

    James gave her a reassuring smile. “You can love somewhere,” he began, and maybe he meant somewhere and someone, too, but Erin wasn’t ready to have that conversation. “And still need to leave it for a while. Derry will always be here,” he reassured, reaching out and giving her knee a gentle squeeze.

    “And you?” she breathed the words. "Will you always be here?"

    - or, a series of moments over their university years where james and erin fall together, fall apart, and find their way home to each other.

    Summary

    “Ach—! Shite, Daddy, you scared the bejesus out of me!” Erin shrieks, jumping away from James who looks shell shocked, and turns red, though it is doing nothing to cover up the love bites all over his neck.

    “I—You—“ Gerry stammers, dropping some cakes in surprise, “I’ll come back later!” And he slams the door as quickly as he’d opened it, and rushes back downstairs.

    When he tells Mary about it, she sighs and just pats him on the back. “Oh, but Gerry, you’ve always been so blind to these things. The weans have been seeing each other since Year 10, or so. Even Sarah knows,” and his sister in law nods sagely at him from the breakfast table. “Wise up, love.”

    Summary

    Capturing moments when James and Erin are growing up and growing together at 17, 19, and, eventually, 27.

    These fics all take place in the same timeline and build on similar themes, but both fics stand completely on their own and do not need to be read in order/together. Will there be a Part 3? Maybe someday (yes).

    Summary

    Erin really had no idea how she got into this situation. To be perfectly honest, this was not the first time she’d ended up in a position she would not have predicted, and couldn’t explain. She practically lived her life having no idea how she got where she was. Christ, James’ first day at their school resulted in a dead nun and James pissing in a bin. No one could have predicted that. If she were a bit more self-aware, Erin would probably know that her current predicament was at least seventy percent her own fault. But Erin Quinn was not the kind of girl to live in reality.

    Summary

    I know you’re a fiction writer, but have you thought about trying a different genre? Like maybe documentary film?

    Next year’s the 10th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement and I want to do a little something about NI that’ll be ready around the anniversary in April. Nothing huge, just a retrospective over the past 10 years with a personal angle.

    And I want you to write the script.

    Summary

    Kathy Maguire's announcement that she's returning to Derry to work on a new monster-themed tourism campaign isn't greeted with enthusiasm by her son...

    ...mostly because he's part of the teenage mystery solving gang dedicated to debunking the city's supernatural activity.

    When James, Erin, Orla, Michelle and Clare stumble on a secret catacomb hidden beneath Our Lady Immaculate College, they think it's just the start of another monster-themed caper to cover up a crime. But when Erin finds a lost locket and can't connect it to the case, a mysterious figure known only as 'C' informs them that they've unwittingly stumbled upon the real mystery hidden in the Derry catacombs...

    Summary

    It was a familiar dance for them, a different sense of personal space that they had, at some point, tacitly agreed on – always standing too close, or choosing the seat next to each other, hands brushing or touching, shoulders bumping.  

    The familiarity of it was comforting, but there was also a new edge to it. For her, at least. She knew better now what could come next.
    __________

    James and Erin keep growing and growing up together. Set in the summer of 1999 after the gang's first year at university.

    This fic stands completely on its own from Part 1 of the series.

    Summary

    "There are carriages on the street, people are wearing clothes from like two centuries ago," James said "Don't you think that's… odd?"

    "Of course it's fucking weird." Michelle replied "But it's England so we were expecting it."

    "Wait, this is how you think England is like?"

    The four girls nodded.

      Bookmark Notes:

      room was painted an impossibly bright shade of yellow, fitted with shiny, new furniture. The wall he had designated for his posters was stripped bare. Every trace of James living there was gone, carefully scrubbed away to make room for his new sibling. The doorframe had even been painted over, marking James' height from a babbling toddler to a young man. If he squinted hard enough, he could still make out the faint pencil scratchings his stepfather had made up until he and his mum had divorced.

      "James, I can explain. I -"

      James slipped past his mother as carefully as possible, silently entering the guest bedroom to pack. Kathy stood there, frozen. She hadn't planned on James finding out this way, if he was going to find out at all.

      He began to make his way to the front door, almost

      Living with James wasn't half as bad as she had expected it to be. It became their nightly routine, sitting in the garden, oftentimes sharing a cigarette in order to preserve their supply for longer. They spoke about whatever was on their mind. Michelle told him all about Niall, and the months the family had spent suspended in time and separated from the world. James told her about his mother and stepfather, the bullying, and the small group of friends he had left behind.

      At university, she told everyone she had two brothers.

      James and Niall.

      He recognised Michelle almost instantly, hands on her hips as she dictated her group of tiny followers around. She was yelling something, the sound drowned out by the clapping. Clare had kept the same haircut all these years, too busy holding another girl's hand to pay attention to Michelle's yelling. Orla had her hands on her ears, on the verge of tears as her cup of juice continued to spill out of her titled grip.
