Not for the first time since I moved to this country, I miss ‘refreshments’ being sandwiches/curry puffs/maybe even mee hoon and fried chicken, instead of just silly old wine and crisps :(




Title: No Bangs Without Foreign Office Approval

Pairing: fem!John Watson/fem!Sherlock Holmes

Rating: Explicit.

Summary: It’s 1942, and while London’s nights are no longer interrupted by air raid sirens, the war still rages and not all of it is fought openly. From its headquarters in Baker Street, the Special Operations Executive plans to set Europe ablaze with its networks of spies and saboteurs in Nazi-occupied territory. Joan Watson knows what it is to keep a secret, but she isn’t expecting to be recruited into the clandestine world of SOE. Nor is she prepared to meet Sherlock Holmes, a former private detective who has by her own admission ruined her own life at least three times over—and who has a murder to solve in Occupied France.

Chapter one.

If you’ve been waiting to read No Bangs until it was complete (or didn’t know of its existence until now), now is the perfect time as it is COMPLETE. And it’s spectacular. Seriously, it’s been such a privilege to beta for Orla on this, to see the evolution of the story and think so much about the glorious, complicated versions of our familiar characters which she’s created. Plus the historical research is stellar and the queer espionage spy story wonderfully gripping. 



Now, let’s get started! I’ve been planning this for three months.

Stories are powerful devices. And like all powerful devices they are capable of doing great harm as well as great good. Traditionally published fiction in North America has been predominantly representational fiction. The stories are recreations of known or recognizable elements in our world such as people, animals, plant-life, etc. in an environment be it urban, rural, or “wild”, in some form of interaction that is relational. Science fiction, fantasy and horror may bring in elements that are imagined, or yet to be invented or discovered, etc. However, the narratives are still informed by a world experienced through a human filter, and, often, the introduction of the fantastic can be a way of better understanding the existing workings and relationships with the experiential world of that moment. The best of science fiction and fantasy can cast a kind of bending light. We see the familiar in unfamiliar ways. We see the unfamiliar in familiar ways.

Writing story is the act of inscribing a specific vision. But in inscribing the specific story she’d like to share the writer exerts her control. In doing so she eliminates the possibilities of other inclusions. So writing stories can be, simultaneously, an act of creating as well as an act of exclusion.

How important, then, that published stories come from diverse sources; from the voices, experiences, subjectivities and realities of many rather than from the imagination of dominant white culture. For even as we’ve been enriched and enlightened by tales from Western tradition, stories are also carriers and vectors for ideologies. And the white literary tradition has a long legacy of silencing, erasing, distorting and misinforming.
