Title: Road to Golgotha
Characters/Pairing: James Hathaway / Robert Lewis, Jean Innocent, Fiona McKendrick, Laura Hobson, Nell Hathaway, Monty, Original Characters
Wordcount: c. 29,000
Warnings: Suicide (in the case), exhumation of bodies, homophobia, faith and doubt. Spoilers for pretty much all of Lewis, including Series 9.
Genre: Case Fic, Hurt/Comfort, Romance
Summary: A suicide carries disturbing echoes of an old case. While Lewis goes undercover at Mayfield College, James must come to terms with ghosts from his past.
“James, are you drunk?”
He considered lying, but Lewis wasn’t a detective for nothing.
“Only a bit,” he said, and thought of Fiona and teacups of wine and long, blonde hair glinting in the Christmas lights and things he should want but just didn’t, and suddenly he wasn’t laughing anymore. “Can I come in?”

Title: A Resting Place for the Heart
Characters/Pairing: James Hathaway, Robbie Lewis, Laura Hobson, Nell Hathaway, Lizzie Maddox, Tony Maddox
Warnings: Spoiler for a significant event in the final series
Summary: Some journeys are geographical; others are emotional . . .
To Barcardivodka: I hope I’ve managed to write a story that fits with your wishes, and gives you a warm, contented feeling for Christmas – that was my aim, anyway!
Thank you to my beta for being so speedy and supportive – you know who you are!
There is a further (spoilery) note at the end of the fic

Rating: Teen and Up Audiences
Warnings: Post-Series 9, Episode: s09e05-06 What Lies Tangled Parts 1-2, Canon-Typical Violence, Hurt/Comfort, First Kiss
Summary: It’s like the blind leading the blind. For all that they’re the smartest detectives she’s ever worked with, they’re remarkably clueless about each other.
Author's Note: Happy holidays loves_books! I'm still not entirely sure this fits your request, but I hope you enjoy it.
MANY thanks to my betas for the outstanding work they did on this. It's a far better story thanks to their work. Any remaining errors are mine and mine alone.

Title: Fallback Date
Characters/Pairing: Robbie Lewis/James Hathaway
Wordcount: 6000 approx
Summary: “We should do this every year neither of us has other commitments. A fallback date – you know, a bit like those friends in films who say they’ll marry each other if they’re both still single by a certain age.”
With thanks to L for the lightning BR and suggestions, and reassurance that this works!

Title: For Charity
Characters/Pairing: Robbie Lewis/James Hathaway
Warnings: Don't think anything needs warning about.
Summary: Robbie and James are called on by Moody to do a Charity calendar which reveals hiddent talents and leads to not entirely unexpected results considering the fandom's predilections.
Author notes: It should be noted that in order for this story to work Robbie and Laura only spend a few weeks in New Zealand before it becomes clear that she wants to stay and Robbie hates it. They split amicably and without too much drama and Robbie returns to Oxford and is welcomed back by the team with open arms but Moody is still holding the precarious nature of his job over his head.

Characters/Pairings: James Hathaway, James Hathaway & Lizzie Maddox, Robert Lewis/Laura Hobson, Robert Lewis/James Hathaway
Warnings: No warnings apply
Summary: A few months after ‘What Lies Tangled’, and just a few short days before Christmas, James is injured in the line of duty. Christmas Eve finds him on the road to recovery, and the stories that follow feature four different aftermaths of this same event, in four possible futures.
Author’s note: The title, four individual story headers, and the original idea are all inspired by the wonderful ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens, though there are no actual ghosts to be found here.

Title: Blame It On the Mistletoe
Laura laughs and leans into Robbie. “You know...” she says, “the kissing stops when the berries are gone.”

Title: The Die Is Cast
Characters/Pairing: James Hathaway/Robbie Lewis, Laura Hobson
Warnings: No warnings apply.
Laura glared at James again. “You said you were going to tell him.”
“I asked you not to say anything and you rang him.”
“Only to find out if you’d told him. I wasn’t going to tell him. If I’d known you hadn’t said a bloody word, I would have…”
“Would have what?
Disclaimer: This is all for fun. All I own are my errors.
Author’s Note: To xfdryad. I hope you enjoy this.
Many thanks to my beta and Brit-picker. I have played with the story since its return. All fluffs and gaffes are mine alone.
