8It's August Again by r4ven3 This is a gentle piece, written chiefly in dialogue form, exploring another aspect of the Ruth/Harry relationship in S9. There's a little of what-should-have-been, just to take them a little further than they were allowed to venture in canon. One shot only.

8 What Happened in Cyprus by r4ven3 This is another one shot, set several months after Ruth's return from Cyprus. Chiefly dialogue-driven, and featuring Harry and Ruth, and a brief appearance by Ros Myers - because Ros can say things which other characters never dare say. Rated T for some swearing.

31 Living In Lockdown » by r4ven3 So I had to put aside the one shot I had already written to post at this time, as this other story kind of barged its way in. I have included one of my own favourite OCs from some other fic I wrote (and I have no idea which fic that was) simply because I liked this OC as a person. It's set at this time in history, assuming our favourite couple made it to 2020. I hope you enjoy.

9 Wrestling the Bear by r4ven3 Another one shot, and another one set in S10, with a twist to canon, just to once again avert the inevitable disaster which emerged (inevitably) during the final series. I wanted to write something chiefly dialogue driven, and which takes place over a short space of time. While he only makes a brief appearance, Tariq's involvement in this story is key.
