The Bellman's Map

They were a police force -- service -- in the sense that they technically existed. They had one telephone, an empty shop, Oxfam tables and chairs, an electric kettle, and a single car on loan from Bristol. The car was missing a nave plate.

Nevertheless, they existed.

This was so damn good. I was giggling and cackling throughout - each paragraph just got funnier and funnier. The 'AA Street By Street', and all the names therein, Andy's action hero moment, all the scenes with Danny and Nicholas. Every scene with one of the Turners, or Tony in it. And Walker. I too was mumbling his lines under my breath to work them out.

And I love that you made the fake-grocers into the new station.

Like many others, I have tried to pick moments to quote & squee over but just ended up with the entire fic *worships* I loved this, every moment. Sympathised with Danny as I recently had an op & those foldable wheelchairs are the devil's own to get out of when you're able-bodied, let alone when you're drugged up & have 1 arm tied up out of the way.

Do you think Nick's going to ask the architects to add a soundproof walk-in cupboard to the Inspector's office? Just a thought.

I think I'm going to have to name my mum's stick. It really is crying out for a name, now.

Like every great weapon of history or mythology, a cane MUST possess a name. :)

Don't know which bit I laughed harder at--the infinite regression of reimbursement forms, or the Severn. Niiice.

All the map stuff is straight out of the AA Guide. It literally had me rolling on the living-room floor when I read it. That little dotted line...

Except Clotting Reap is made up, because I didn't want to tie Sandford down geographically.

Literally wiping my eyes and blowing my nose; I laughed, snickered, chortled, giggled - all smothered behind my hands because I'm supposed to be doing useful worky things, you evil person! Oh my fornicating deity! I want to take this fic and cuddle and pet it and keep it always like Smeagol with his 'precious'. Gah!

Add me to the list of incoherently gleeful people who worship your quirkily brilliant brain.

If you see this comment (since I'm kicking up the dust in your archives here, I dunno whether you will), would you translate "Poorlilmeyetallshotfulleraysandode" for me? I just can't get the last bit. *offers up replica of Danny's best puppy-dog-eyes expression*

Sure. "Poor little mite, all shot full of rabies antidote."

This was awesome. Incredibly funny and just... oh, that perfect mix where everyone's just slightly off the air -- Nicholas included -- but still very believable. I really enjoyed it.
