    Ashes to Ashes AU

    After waking up, Alex finds out that there is a D.C.I. Gene Hunt in a coma in a Manchester hospital after a bomb exploded years ago. Back in the 80’s Gene starts having strange visions with her and begins to remember the accident. He forgot everything because he didn’t have a reason to wake up. Until now.

    I love him and Stacie together. I can’t help myself (and I share the same name with her so I can Mary Sue the hell out of that, and I do!).

    Now that is a fabulous thing!  Rumpled approves wholeheartedly!  And is just a little bit jealous.  

    However, I just got the RG-narrated Cuckoo’s Calling audiobook in which one of the characters shares my first name, so I get to hear him repeat it over & over, which is also fabulous.  Unfortunately, his accent isn’t very Ash-y or even London/Phil-y, it’s just generically “English.”

    There’s also a big Ash/Sean following. I would say Ash is quite the man. sighs He’s lovely!

    I don’t really see the Ash/Sean thing, bc it seems way too paternal to me. But seeing as how I want Ash for myself…same with Sam/Gene, though not paternal in that case, just BROTP.

    I see Ash as the linchpin of the group, the practical genius with social skills that the others seem to lack - at least in terms of interacting with the larger community.  Not to mention, having actual friends, which the others don’t appear to, and an ex w/whom he’s still on good terms & will probably always love, if not romantically.

    I *do* go on.  Sorry.

    So do you ship Ash and Emma? I did. There was like four different scenes and I just couldn’t stop myself.

    LOL, I also ship Ash & his crowbar bc OMFG that was totally wear-out-the replay-button incapacitatingly hot!

    No, but I do ship Ash w/his unspoken knowledge and concern over the Micky/Emma nightmare & how it’s going to doom them all in the end. Concern not for M/E themselves, but over their childish disregard for the group.

    I thought I might’ve shipped Ash & Stacie, but that’s more of a “for lack of any other female” thing - kinda’ the way I ship Gene & Alex.  Also as a “a big ol’ ‘fuck you!’ to the uber-egotistical/flash git pretty boys.” Not that I don’t love them.  Mostly.

    Bonus Rant:  I wish Billy would’ve stuck around & I wish Sean would just go away.

    It’s leaning more towards a full on rewatch and not just eps here and there. Also let me know to when you to get the Danny/Stacieless eps. I want to ask you something.

    I’m in the middle of season 6, so…~1.5 seasons into Danny/Stacieless-ness.  Ask away!

I wonder what the world would look like if we started thinking about weapons as things that build people up instead of things that tear them down. We could start with books. Books are weapons against our own ignorance, prejudices, and narrow mindedness. Books never destroy us without building us back up again from new, better material.
Also, Doctor Who’s back on Saturday - the world needs more Doctor Who.
