That New Kind of Feminism: Shaz gen.

When you are the only child of a single mother, it seems to be ingrained in your mind to be some kind of women power, feminist rally type of gal.

Shaz wouldn’t exactly call herself the definition of women power, with her girlish giggles and pastel bedroom, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t expect respect. She wouldn’t have followed her daddy’s footsteps into Law Enforcement over her mum’s secretarial job if she wasn’t after that sweet smell of well-earned success.

The WPC work she does might seem secretarial, but Shaz has her mind, and her pink sweater, set on greatness.

Living is Feeling, but Chris feels like death: Chris gen.


They interviewed the Guv because DCI Hunt and DI Tyler went together like plonks and hairspray. Ray’s shocked face fell under the headline in the initial report. Hell, everyone flocked to Annie like she was some goddamn widow, forgetting the fact that Sam and Annie split four years before.

He wasn’t completely forgotten; Nelson gave him a free drink and a pat on the back when he walked in looking like Ray after a tit grab gone sour. But this was no bird, this was Sam Tyler and dead together in the same sentence.

Chris just sat it out alone.

Don't We Look So Perfect: Chris/Shaz (would that be Chaz? It should).

Her blouse was the right shade of blue for her, and he obviously noticed this as he couldn’t stop that damn stupid grin of his from illuminating the street.

He took her hand like a preteen girl would, and gave her a little twist as they danced down the street.

Reaching Shaz’s flat, Chris walked her up to the building’s entrance, making last minute small chatter that obviously pleased the WPC enough to have her plant a chaste kiss on his lips as they continued their “cautious” little waltz.

Gene almost felt bad about interrupting them for a robbery case.

HURRAH FOR DRABBLES!

I rather love the title of the first drabble, and I love how you've given Shaz so much depth.

'and her pink sweater' is insanely sweet.

I love 'like plonks and hairspray', because it is an amzing, entirely Chris-like simile.

I love the listing, and just the whole idea of how people reacted to Sam's death, and your wording is beautiful, oh man.

And! 'Ray after a tit grab gone sour' is beautifully LoM, and 'Sam Tyler and dead together in the same sentence' is heartbreaking, as is that final sentence. Oh Chris ♥.

'like a preteen girl' is utterly sweet, and 'gave her a little twist' is PROBABLY THE MOST ADORABLE THING EVER, and '"cautious"' mostly just makes me want to hug Chris A LOT.

Also, Geeene ♥.

I do what I can.

I love making up canon for characters, and Shaz deserves that depth.

Thank you! I tried to fit loads of different things into 100 words on that second one.

I totally could imagine that, just in my mind, Chris doing those little motions because he is awesome. My Chris fangirl loves to break out madly and dance around.

:DD

I love this line!

And this title: Living is Feeling, but Chris feels like death

:)



I just went back to your last post and:
"I cried at the end of it, true facts, when Gene was in him office and looked at the newspaper clipping. Not just silent tears, loud gasping ones."
Oh my God, so did I. It was messy. :(

Thank you very much! I generally have generic one word titles, but I was like 'change'. Or something. :D

I then started to tear up looking at icons of that scene. It is not a happy thought at all. :(
