Trying to clarify fannon and cannon

3 July 2019 | 23:33
posted by: krisserci5 in the_safehouse

Who is better with a rifle? - with a hand gun?

I think I keep quoting fannon. . . . Doyle is better with the hand gun, Bodie the rifle.

In the Rack - Doyle is said to be a A1 marksman. . . .

Is there canon to support their prowess with weapons?

Thank you!

2019 MS Gaslight poster
I'm supposed to be working desperately today to catch up, but I took a moment to read the pros_newsletter (thank you as ever to bordosnoopy, who is doing a great job) - and look! MS is on stage again this October, and having missed the American-president one (I can never remember the title...) I for one am determined to see this one! Plus - Victorian murder-mystery? Much more my thing! Hurrah!

(PS - Mods! kiwisue and constantmuse! Could someone possibly sort or be given access to sort the tags at Safehouse - posts are getting lost, which is such a shame...) Worst-case scenario (because they don't cover everything), maybe members could be given access just to choose from the tags that already exist?

Hee - that was fun! I didn't do quite what I said and choose one... you'll see. *g* Might have to try that again! Oh, and someone pointed out today that you had to scroll through the whole lot again to find the new chapter-bit, so I've added in a cut so that you can jump straight in if you want.

Doyle woke slowly from sleep, sun-drenched because he'd left the curtains open the night before, and feeling lazy with it. For the first time in nearly two months he didn't have to get up, didn't have to do anything at all. Brankoff and all his chums were behind bars where they should be, the reports were written and the court case weeks away, thanks to the judicial backlog. He finally had a day off. Not even just a day, not even a weekend, but the whole Easter weekend, Good Friday to Easter Monday, nothing to do. Just what he needed.

He took a deep breath of morning air, frowned as it tickled his nose, and tucked his face back into the sheet. What was it, eight, nine o'clock? He was too lazy to open his eyes and check, but it must be getting on, he hadn't felt this well-rested in ages. He could get up and have some breakfast, catch up on the papers. Take it easy. Or he could stay right where he was, full of warmth and well-being, think some nice thoughts, fall asleep again...

Wow, thank you everyone who voted in the poll - and hee that when I woke up and saw the results it was actually a tie! I'd just decided that the tie-breaker was the first-person-to-choose, when someone else jumped in and actually chose that option too! Not where I was expecting it to go, but let's see... *g* (I've got to nip to the supermarket, so I'll go with majority rules again if there's more than one vote by the time I get back!)

Except the trouble with waking up in the first place was that now he needed to get up and piss. All that beer from last night, he remembered, when they'd been dismissed early enough to get to the pub before closing time, and decided to make the best of it. Christ, and Bodie'd left with that tall girl from the Foreign Office, all long legs and...

He felt himself frown, turned over restlessly and found his eyes open. Well that took care of the nice thoughts - not what he'd had in mind at all. Might as well get up after all. He took another deep breath, threw back the covers and hauled himself up to sit on the edge of the bed, rubbing his face to wake up properly. What time was it then...?

Six forty five. Six-bloody-forty-five! And now he was up and awake when he hadn't meant to be at all. Bloody CI5 internal alarm clock. Bloody Bodie and his fetish for long legs.

Still - he peered with slitted eyes at the blue-skyed morning, realised there was a bird singing somewhere, and that the forecast had been set fair at least until the Bank Holiday Monday. All that sunshine, it'd be a shame to waste it... He took himself to the bathroom, took his piss, and eyed the tracksuit he'd thrown on top of the laundry basket. Yeah, what he needed was a run.

D'you remember those old Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books, where you read a chapter and then it gave you a choice of what happened next, and you picked and went to the next page that it said, and so the story went on? Well it occurred to me that lj might be a fun place to play that with our lads... *g*

I'll write a bit of a story, and then post a poll with choices of what happens next. I'll take the first response as what happens, close the poll and write the next bit. Then I'll post a poll with choices of... *g*

Worst case scenario, I sit here like a lemon with a single paragraph of lads and me tissues. Best case - maybe I'll finally write another Pros fic! It feels like ages, but something's stopping me just sitting down and doing it. So maybe this'll help... And I thought I'd do it at one of the Pros comms, cos The Safehouse has been very quiet lately... Anyone like to play? *g*
