    Summary

    Various oneshots, sometimes taking advantages of e.g. the soulmate meme or the poetry meme, in which I speculate wildly about John and Nancy's relationship and try - not always successfully - to give them a happy ending.

    Summary

    Seven years after the end of the Second World War, Captain Nancy Blackett attempts to sail across the Atlantic single-handed, in her sloop The Wild Cat Island. Unsurprisingly, what she finds is not a simple crossing, but adventure with Smugglers, Parrots, and a Mysterious Package.

    Summary

    Set spring/ summer 1938. With war increasingly likely, the Admiralty need updated charts of the Baltic Sea. Amateur yachtsmen and women are discretely asked to help with this, under the guise of leisurely pleasure cruising. The Swallow, Amazons and Callums are among them. Naval Lieutenant John Walker has been asked to do a little more than that and Nancy inevitably gets involved the task. Involves danger and some (not graphic) violence in a few chapters. A warning will be put at the start of any chapter with a fight. (I've had a complaint, via a different site, that I should have given a trigger warning for Nazis. I thought Berlin 1938 would be sufficient and that anyone who really needed that warning would know what the dates and place implied, or look it up, not just say they "couldn't be bothered to check." I was wrong. I still feel angry at the complainant's implied contempt for those who actually suffered contrasted with her extreme care for herself.)

    Summary

    In which the Swallows and Amazons crew get the opportunity to properly go to sea, and intentionally this time. Mainly focused on the developing relationship of John and Nancy as I have always liked the idea of these two getting together - it just seems so perfect. Only rated T for general romance. Enjoy!

    Summary

    This it the first part of a story I originally posted elsewhere as Pieces. That narrated events in chronological order. I decided to see if the story works better split into three connected sections not with every scene strictly chronological. If any reader has had the patience read the both versions, I would love to know which structure you prefer.
    In 1945, Dorothea's work at Bletchley Park has finished. She is wondering what happens next, but she isn't the only one.

    Summary

    'Under bombs and guns, men are carried across the Channel, not only by troop-ships, but by private yachts, river tugs, harbour life-boats and coastal pleasure steamers – the ‘Saucy Sallies’ of the summer season. The rescuers are not wholly male. ‘Blast my sex!’ cries a girl who offers her private yacht, to be told that men alone are eligible. The powers-that-be turn a blind eye in her direction, and suspect that she finds her way to Dunkirk.'
