    Summary

    Originally, as they realised what chaos would ensue amongst the entire community of Derry, James and Erin decided to conceal their budding relationship for at least a few weeks. Given the English-Irish thing and the general population of Derry having a habit of involving themselves as intimately as possible in other’s affairs, it seemed like a good idea. However, given that the fledgling couple could not, for all the world, keep a secret between them, it began to look like a controlled reaction was their best bet, despite how terrifying the prospect was.

    Summary

    The "Galway Girl" AU nobody asked for.

    Excerpt from Chapter Two:
    "The first time James had seen Erin talk to David Donnelly, she had been plugging in all of the instruments to the amplifiers and nearly set the stage on fire. "Boys are not worth arson, Erin!" Jenny scolded. A few weeks later Erin tried again and was almost successful, but was too distracted and had gone absolutely mad; all but cannon-balling off the stage to jump a girl in the audience. That was the end of any hope Erin had with David Donnelly."

    A big thank you to SugaryRemus for reading over my work! :)

    Summary

    James didn’t expect to be taking care of a drunk Michelle while wearing Jenny Joyce’s spare pyjamas; and he certainly didn’t expect to be doing it with David Donnelly of all people.

    But, as James learns, unexpected doesn’t always mean bad.

    Summary

    Erin knows for a fact that there are certain things a Derry Girl just doesn’t do.

    Stay in the area when an orange march is happening. Tell your ma where you're going on St Patrick's.

    But most importantly, under no circumstances, catch yourself fancying some fella from outside Ireland.

    It's a pity that she's already flunked that rule, isn't it?

    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

    She’s wearing his jacket.

    He didn’t mean for it to happen. It’s just that summers in Derry run surprisingly hot. Hot enough for his curls to bounce on his head and his tee shirts to be drenched in sweat. Enough for all of them to ditch their coats onto a big pile at the pub, only to grab onto them as the night finally brings back some cool air.

    So when he picks up a shearling denim jacket, head woozy from all the dancing, he has no reason to believe it’s not his. Sure, it’s a little tight in the shoulders, and there’s something heavy in the inner pocket, but he’s not exactly in a state to notice either of those details.

    It’s only when he sees Erin dancing ahead of them, holding hands with Orla that he realizes his mistake.

    ----
    James and Erin mess up and accidentally switch jackets. It shouldn't be a big deal, except it definitely is.

    Summary

    In which we explore the different stages of Erin and James' Very Good Friendship.

    "Erin and James were no closer than the rest of them. And if Erin and James did somehow manage to be nearer to each other than was typical of the girls, it was only because she ran cold and he was always inexplicably warm for an English fella, and by the law of thermodynamics or equilibrium or some shit like that, it would have been far stranger to not be drawn to each other."

    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.

    Soulmate mark AU.
    On her wrist, Erin has the initials JM.
    James has the initials EQ on his.
    Not that they would tell each other, soulmarks could mean anyone, and it's too early to meet your soulmate at 16 right?
