reccing a writer who is new to writing in S&A fandom
Welcome ds_tiff, a due South fic writer who has written her first two for Slings & Arrows. Links are to fic on AO3.

To Thine Own Self Be True is a missing-scene fic for S1 E6 "Playing the Swan".

What's Done is Done is a missing-scene fic for S2 E5 "Steeped in Blood".

(In dS fic, she is known for excellent long, plotty, character-driven gen stories.)

Another annual C6D Ladies Day has come and gone, and it reminded me that scribe posted fic here for last year's C6D Ladies Day...which reminded me to post here to keep the bots away.

In “Geoffrey’s Return” it’s implied that Richard and Geoffery don’t know each other, but then Richard says he’s been General Manager of the festival for eight years, and canonically Geoffery’s breakdown happened seven years ago. Has this ever been explained?

Also, based on Geoffery and Mae's relationship in this episode, I'm coming to think that she was the one--or one of the few--people who came to his aid after the breakdown. She's so competent, and he sees so pleased to see her, but not quite like he hasn't seen her in seven years. The way she doesn't question his sanity/immediately thinks to appoint him as Artistic Director makes me think she knows the medical nature of his temporary psychotic break, and that she's seen his work in the interim.

This year's Yuletide offerings include 4 Slings & Arrows fics.  I wrote one, one was a gift for me, but I have seen all four rec'ed in people's Yuletide rec posts, so you don't need to take my biased word that they're all worth reading. :)
