Title: Letter
Series: Controlled Love, Part 13. Start the series here.
Fandom: A Bit of Fry & Laurie
Pairing: Tony/Control
Rating: PG
Summary: Control reads a letter from his wife.
Disclaimer: No ownership claimed, just oodles of love for these characters.


He read her letter.

Dear Control,

I write to say that I will not be coming home. I needed some time away to figure out my feelings; I've come to realize you do not make me happy. I don't want to hurt you, but we both know that we are not right for each other.

For some time I've been interested in someone else. Perhaps that might shock you, but I suspect you would admit the same if sworn to tell the truth. I had supressed my emotions for this person, but as it turns out, my feelings were reciprocated and we are now in love and completely happy.

Marjory and I have taken a flat together. She inherited a ladies' designer lingerie shop that has been in her family for years; we will run it together. She has marvelous taste, and we will have no problem making a good living.

I wish only happiness for you. I hope you find joy with the true object of your affection.


He had to confess: It wasn't unexpected. He knew how distracted he'd been thinking of Tony, and now understood what the cause of her distraction had been. Control sighed.

Hurrah! No more Mrs Control! Even better, Mrs Control now lives with another woman. *does the gay dance* I can't wait to see Control tell Tony.

Bwuahahahahahahahaha for both your icon and your gay dance! :D You make me happy; I wasn't sure if anyone would like this installment.

Oh, I'm very happy to take that role and disprove such a silly theory. This is a marvellous turn of events for the boys.

*gives you a big hug* You are so so sweet! :D

*does the friend-of-gay dance* Woo!

AWESOME!! Marjory! And a lingerie shop! I'd bet good money that it's called Eulalie Soeurs, isn't it? :D

I'm glad that it was a relatively pain-free transition for Control and Mrs. Control. Now the coast is clear, Tony!
Mar. 4th, 2007 12:41 am (UTC)
Well, the name might be changing to Sappho Soeurs, but they haven't decided yet. ;)

Yes, it needed to be mutual...I didn't want to have any bad guys here, except for the enemy agents.

Majorie, I can't help but to think that the Majorie she ran off with is the same Majorie who was John's Wife. And contantly was trying takeover in Business that John had.

Good for control he can be with two loves in peace. Tony and Coffee!
Mar. 4th, 2007 08:13 am (UTC)
LOL! Good guess! Now maybe John and Peter can be happy together as well since Marjory will be busy elsewhere.

Hee for Control and his two loves. :)

Bonus points for including Marjory! *g* And now, of course, Control has run out of excuses. He can't pretend he doesn't know how he feels, and he can't use being married as a reason not to act.

I wonder if he'll tell Tony about this. I can just imagine Tony's mixed reaction, wanting to be kind and sympathetic, but inwardly sort of glad that the competition is gone (and of course, because he's Tony, feeling guilty for that).
Mar. 4th, 2007 08:17 am (UTC)
ZOMG bonus points! Yay! Control may still have a reservation or two about getting together with Tony. After all, he is Tony's boss and he'd hate to be accused of sexual harassment. :D

Ah, Tony, feels guilt even when there's no need to. That's just the kind of guy he is. Hee!
Mar. 4th, 2007 01:14 am (UTC)
Oh, Marjory! (That name always makes me think of Majorca for some reason)

I've been bad at commenting, but I've been following along faithfully, waiting for the new installments! Huzzah!
Mar. 4th, 2007 08:18 am (UTC)
Aw, thanks, love! I've not been online much the past week or so, but I'll catch up with you in IM soon! :D
Mar. 4th, 2007 01:17 am (UTC)
Awww! (Is Marjory a grandaughter to Spode??)
Mar. 4th, 2007 08:21 am (UTC)
Heh, I haven't worked out if she's a granddaughter or what (maybe a grand-niece) but she is the one who inherited Eulalie Soeurs. The shop had become less successful over the years, but Marjory's special attention to the customers revived its popularity. :D
Mar. 4th, 2007 03:16 am (UTC)
*does a little dance* YES! Marjorie (Marjory, *shrug*)/ Mrs. Control = OTP. :D
Mar. 4th, 2007 08:22 am (UTC)
LOL for the new OTP! :D

Mrs Control has run off with Margorie! How fantastic! Let the gay love come through in all circles! (I'm not gay, but I have friendships with so many gays that I almost feel part of the gay community!) Npw she's out of the way our men can totally get it on! Woohoo! xxxxxxxxxx

(Would have replied to this before but have spent all day on the Indeed Sir archive... not that I blame you for the link or anything! *ahem*)

Mar. 4th, 2007 08:26 am (UTC)
Hee! There may still be an obstacle or two in their way, but you know it will all work out in the end.

I'm glad you don't hold me accountable for your day at the archive. *whew* :D

It's so cool that her initial is M!
*James Bond geeks*

Just catching up on these, it's making my afternoon full of squee.
Mar. 19th, 2007 07:40 am (UTC)
Hee! Glad you like the M. I will confess that it was a lack of originality on my part. I couldn't think of a good name for her, so I settled on the initial "M" for "Mrs. Control." ;D

Yay! for squee! Glad you're enjoying.
