Fic: Night Watch

Title: Night Watch
Author: divingforstones
Pairing: James Hathaway/Robbie Lewis
Rating: Teen
Wordcount: 9,454
Warnings: None apply.
Author's note: Thanks to wendymr for such helpful, honest and kind beta work. Thanks to lindenharp for supplying a very helpful description of Robbie Lewis cursing in his native vernacular.
“I’m reporting you to Innocent for insubordination. First thing Monday morning. I’ll have you transferred.”
“On what grounds, sir?” James asks, sounding interested rather than chastened, the cheeky sod.
“Failure to obey a direct order.”
“She’ll definitely want to know what the direct order was, then,” James says agreeably.
And Robbie sees the quandary. I tried to kick Sergeant Hathaway out of me bedroom in the early hours of Saturday morning, ma’am, and he just wouldn’t go…”

Over the course of one long hot summer's night, James Hathaway takes on the rather self-appointed task of carrying out orientation checks on an unappreciative Robbie Lewis.

Fic: Ghost Man


Title: Ghost Man
Author: Mistress Kat / kat_lair
Fandom: Lewis
Pairing: Pre-Hathaway/Lewis
Genre: Dragon!AU, case fic
Rating: R
Warnings: Fairly graphic descriptions of violence and threat of violence (including implied sexual violence)
Word count: 11,438
Disclaimer: Not mine, just playing.

Summary: “Do you see now?” the man asks.There’s spittle on his chin and he smells like someone who has spent last week drinking instead of showering but his eye are surprisingly clear and corn-flower blue. “Now that you have it, can you see?”

Author notes: Written for the lewis_challenge Summer Challenge 2014, this is the next instalment of ‘Dream of Dragons’ ‘verse, the previous parts of which can be found via my LJ Fic Masterlist or via AO3. I promise this will make more sense if you read those first. The title is a translation of Cantonese term ‘Gwai Lo’, used in Hong Kong to refer to pale skinned Northern Europeans, derogatory at one time but not considered so any more (or so the Internet tells me…). Please see the end for a further note re language. Finally, many thanks to thesmallhobbit for an excellent and thorough last minute beta without which many a preposition would be wrong.

Fic: Every Colour Illuminates

Title: Every Colour Illuminates
Pairing: Lewis/Hathaway
Rating: G
Words: 300
Warnings: soulmate au
Summary: Drabble collection based on this tumblr text post: "Au where everything is black and white until you meet your soulmate. ADDITIONALLY: when your soulmate dies, the world goes back to black and white."

The moment of finding your soulmate is the subject of many stories and songs, and it was something that Hathaway had never thought would happen to him. The last thing he expected when picking up the new Detective Inspector is for the world to burst into colour all around him. Lewis has seen in black and white for a long time. So long that he hadn't noticed colours slowly creeping back into his vision.

Summer Challenge Fic: A Joy Forever

Title: A Joy Forever
Author: chiralove
Characters/Pairing: Lewis/Hathaway
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 4k-ish
Warnings: character death (nothing worse than you’d get in an episode)
Summary: Lewis helps him strip the skin-tight leather gloves off without soiling his coat, and that’s enough to make James indulge in a quick internal grin. There’s no storm blown through the world yet that didn’t blow some wind through the turbines, as his gran used to say.
Author’s note: A complete AU, because I rather fancied the idea of playing with the characters in a steampunk universe. Apologies for any “anachronisms” -- a few of the quotes, I know, don’t belong here -- except that they do.

A Joy Forever

Fic: To Everything There Is A Season

Title: To Everything There Is A Season
Author: loves_books
Characters/Pairing: Lewis/Hathaway
Rating: Teen, just to be on the safe side
Wordcount: 4669
Warnings: No warnings apply
Summary: Four seasons, four gardens, two men and how much life can change in the course of one single year.
Author notes: Written for skyebabycat who asked for a story set in a garden. Hopefully this is different enough from the lovely story already written and posted by thesmallhobbit for the same prompt - any similarities are not deliberate, and I’m afraid I didn’t feel I had enough time to write a different story. Please do let me know if I've caused any offense or upset.

Huge thanks to my two wonderful beta readers, witch9spring and chiralove – any remaining mistakes are my fault entirely.

Author: fortesomniare
Characters/Pairing: Robert Lewis, James Hathaway, Laura Hobson, Jean Innocent, Ellen Jacoby, Mr Innocent
Rating: PG/Teen
Wordcount: ~9,400
Warnings: No warnings apply
Summary: James Hathaway hit the alarm and swore; he'd meant to hit the snooze button.  Now he'd have to get up or risk oversleeping.  He always struggled to get started on the first day after handing a case to CPS and today wasn't going to be an exception.

With thanks to thesmallhobbit for beta and Brit-pick.  I have tweaked and played with the story since it's return and all errors are mine.  (If you see any glaring errors, please PM me here. Cheers, Som.)

Title: The Case of the Assassinated Aunt.
Author: moth2fic
Characters/Pairing: Inspector Lewis/Sergeant Hathaway
Rating: Mature
Wordcount: 11,919
Warnings: Crossover with Harry Potter

Summary: Sergeant Hathaway's cousin, Draco Malfoy, asks him for police help solving a case of too many deaths in the wizarding world. Inspector Robbie Lewis, who is in a new relationship with James, does not yet know about magic.

Author’s note: Written for the Lewis Summer Challenge
This is a sequel to The Case of the Disappearing Don which was written for the Valentine's Weekend Love Spectacular and was in response to a prompt by tetsubinatu. My brain clearly took this entire idea and ran with it. Reading the first fic would probably help in making sense of this one.

The icon was made by me specifically for the fic but you are welcome to use it (with credit, of course).

Many thanks to Fictionwriter for a fantastic beta!

Series title: The Malfoy Connection.
