Of all the fics I thought I might find on my flist today, this was not among them.

Go read this. It's called Wild Honey and it's by [livejournal.com profile] mrs_leary

It's Calum MacLeod (from the novel Island by Jane Rogers as portrayed by Colin Morgan in the coming film The Sea Change) and a fictionalized version of/ a fictional character called Bradley James. It isn't Colin/Bradley because that's not who these characters are, it reads to me as though this is characters they could play, perhaps, as it isn't them and it isn't an AU.

I've never read Island, although I did just scan the summary, and that doesn't detract from this story at all. It works beautifully as a piece of original fiction. Read her headers for full information because there are issues about the character of Calum you might want to know in advance. I feel like the story deals with Calum with care and respect, but then I don't really know what I'm talking about and I'm quite willing to admit that.

Fic is here

HOLY EFFING ESS

This is super ambitious (I say before I read it). I've read the book, and Calum's a tough, tough character. I hope the movie gets a decent release stateside.

eta: can't read at work esp since it's so long!

I haven't read the book, but I think she's written a wonderful story that is both powerful and heartwarming. I hope you enjoy it when you get a chance to read it.

After having read it, I have some mixed feelings, but I do think she did a really great job analyzing the characters and giving them opportunity to evolve and grow after the end of the novel in a realistic manner. I'm glad you recced it!

Is that flocked? Because right now it's giving me a forbidden access server thing.

That's just the intro entry in [livejournal.com profile] bradleycolin, and yes, it is for some reason locked, but the fic itself isn't.

OOh, sorry! I didn't think of that, I just wanted to link to the intro text. I'm glad Staraflur has given you a new link.
