Controlled Love, Part 30: Epilogue

Title: Epilogue
Series: Controlled Love, Part 30. Start the series here.
Fandom: A Bit of Fry & Laurie
Pairing: Tony/Control
Rating: PG
Summary: A wrap-up for the series.
Disclaimer: No ownership claimed, just oodles of love for these characters.
Note: When I wrote my first little T/C drabble, I had no thoughts of a 30-part series. Now here I am, exactly 29 days and 20,000 words later, hardly able to believe that I've reached the end. I want to thank everyone who's read the series, encouraged me with wonderful supportive comments, and provided excellent plot suggestions. You guys are teh bestest, and I send much love and hugging your way! :D


Everyone at headquarters was shocked when they heard the news. In the month since the embassy dinner, interrogations were completed, debriefings fully processed, investigations closed, and arrests made. It was good to have it all done, but the result was a blow to the Service.

There were always persistent rumours of a mole within British Intelligence. Such information was never discounted; the rumours were usually groundless but it would never do to risk ignoring the possibility. The last mole, Costain, had been active for some time and severely damaged their network in East Germany.

This time, the mole had been able to function only briefly. Once the enemy agents had revealed their information under Agent Siviter's expert interrogation, capturing the traitor had been simply a matter of time.

Control called The Minister as soon as the arrest was made.

"Yes, Minister, we are completely stunned… No, we never suspected Philip at all. He'd done sterling work as head of F Division… Apparently he'd only been recently recruited… His contact used the code name 'Jack'… Yes, Minister, I agree we need to replace him immediately… Do I have anyone I'd recommend? Sir, I know just the man. You remember Tony Murchison?"

You know, from start to finish this was wonderfully well written, and sweet and IC and yet so much deeper than what we get in the show itself.

You've done a brilliant job *applauds and throws confetti*
Mar. 19th, 2007 11:59 am (UTC)
*curtseys* Thank you, dear one. You've been one of my most loyal supporters throughout this series, and I've truly appreciated your encouragement! :D

Mar. 19th, 2007 12:33 pm (UTC)
OMG it's over? What am I going to do now without it?

It was brilliant, and wonderful, and thank you v.v.v. much for mentioning Jack. Ties up all loose ends, and..just...*happy sigh*

*pictures Tony and Control happily bringing each other coffee 'till the end of eternity. (Or until Jack manages to murder the Minister) :D
Mar. 19th, 2007 11:22 pm (UTC)
Honestly? I kinda feel the same way... what am I gonna do now? :)

Thanks for all your support and suggestions throughout this whole series! I really do appreciate all you've done!

Aw, they'll bring each other coffee till the end their days. :)

And you know I included Jack especially for you! :D

:O Philip! Nay!

Haha, I loved this so much. Memming.
Mar. 19th, 2007 11:24 pm (UTC)
Heh... Philip was expendable to be able to have Tony back. :D

Eeee... I LOVE being memmed! Thanks!
Mar. 19th, 2007 12:55 pm (UTC)
Hee! You faked me out with the first line - I thought they were going to be shocked with the news of Tony/Control. :) Great ending! (I hope nobody gets the idea that Tony's only back because they're lovers, but you know how office gossip is.)
Mar. 19th, 2007 11:26 pm (UTC)
Yay! I was hoping to fake someone out with the beginning! :)

I thought of this ending about 4 days ago, and wrote it very soon after. I am very happy with it!

Aw, let the gossipers talk... Tony got the job on merit alone! And our heroes will be discreet. :D

*happy dance*

Ah, Tony and Control, may you always be sweet and polite and madly in love with each other. I have to wonder if Hugh and Stephen meant for the characters to come across as so very slashy, or if it just happened. It seems to happen a lot with them; maybe something about the underlying affection and friendship they have.

So anyway, you know I had much love for this series. I'm going to miss it! Thanks for brightening my flist for so long, and for incorporating a few of my random squeeful comments into your plotline. *g*
Mar. 19th, 2007 11:29 pm (UTC)
Honest, I'm not sure it's the characters themselves but rather Hugh and Stephen together that just make it feel that way. Either way, I'm not complaining... the more slashiness for Stugh, the better!

*hug* Your plot bunnies were wonderful additions to the series; in fact, it wouldn't have been as good or as long without them! Thanks so much, and for reading and all your wonderful comments. :)
Mar. 19th, 2007 02:08 pm (UTC)
short and sweet and to the point. I admit to being worried about what would happen after everything was concluded.

Kudos to Jools and Jack references!

Sneaky Control, but good on him!
Mar. 20th, 2007 06:40 am (UTC)
Thanks so much! I truly appreciate all your wonderful comments; thanks for reading and enjoying! :)
Mar. 19th, 2007 06:15 pm (UTC)
Aww, such a happy ending. Although I cant belive its the end! Youre a great writer, and I hope you continue to dazzle us with your brilliance! Your series brought lots of smiles and happiness! Whats next girl!? *wink wink*
Mar. 20th, 2007 06:41 am (UTC)
I can't honestly believe it's quite the end, either! This has become part of my daily routine, and I shall definitely miss it.

What next? I think catch up on some of the things in my life that I've let go because of this... like work and laundry! ;)

*Hands you a crown*

*worships at your feet*

What a lovely little ending! Control will have his Tony working with him again so he can take him roughly from behind in the office! Yay! Though I am more than a little sad that it's over, I can always read it over and over again! Yay! This series made me soooo happy :D :D

Control luvs Tony 4eva n eva!
Mar. 20th, 2007 06:46 am (UTC)
Eeeeek! A crown and worshipping? Really, my dear, it's too much!

I definitely wanted to figure out a way to have Tony back with the Service, and Philip was definitely expendable. Heh.

I'm rather sad that it's over, too! I hope they come back and tell me some more stories soon. :D

Thanks, love, for all your wonderful support and lovely comments over the past weeks. You're definitely one of the folks who I kept in mind as I wrote, and I'm so glad that you liked my little series!

T/C 4 EVAH!!

Thank you so much, my dear! I'm so happy that you liked the series. I had quite a lot of fun writing it. *cuddles in the love and hugging*
Mar. 20th, 2007 02:02 am (UTC)
Ohh, just lovely. I'm so glad Tony will be back at the office so he and Control can have kinky office sex every day see each other all the time and have their morning coffee together. ;)

And yay for the ellipse telephone conversation! It worked so seamlessly that I didn't even notice it on first read - I had to think to myself "wait a minute, there was that one-sided phone conversation at the end, how did she end up handling it?" So bravo for that as well!

Bravo, bravo, bravissimo! *showers you with gold stars* It's been a roller-coaster ride, a true epic, and I want to thank you so much for taking us on this journey.

Now, let me be the first second two hundred and twelfth to demand a sequel at once! :p
Mar. 20th, 2007 06:54 am (UTC)
I felt I had to put Tony back at British Intelligence... the multitudes (well, you and Zekkass) demanded it (well, asked that Tony not be fired). Why, no, I don't have any delusions of grandeur at all; what makes you ask? :D

Heh. I liked the way the conversation turned out. Thanks for your thoughts about that!

*pastes gold stars into my memory book* This has really been an amazing experience, and I have loved every minute of it. Thank you so much for all your wonderful supportive comments; they really helped encourage me to do better each chapter.

I will definitely look for our heroes to tell me more stories. As soon as they do, I'll type them up and get them posted! :)
Mar. 20th, 2007 04:09 am (UTC)
...and again I say SQUEE!
Mar. 20th, 2007 06:54 am (UTC)
Yay! for SQUEE! :D
Apr. 2nd, 2007 02:23 pm (UTC)
This was so great!
Oh my gosh, i have been looking for a Tony/Control fic since i got BOFAL on DVD and this is my first one!
Thanks for making it so awesome.

Apr. 2nd, 2007 03:18 pm (UTC)
You are so welcome! I adore Tony and Control, and writing this series was most assuredly a labor of love. :) I'm so happy you enjoyed it, too!

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. :D

You need to look over at fryandorlaurie for more great T/C fics! Especially those by ennui_blue_lite.

Oh, I just loved this series! So glad I was finally able to read it!
Jun. 7th, 2007 10:03 am (UTC)
Awwww, I'm glad you were able to read it, too! And I'm very glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for reading and your lovely comment.

I have just discovered this series and read it all in one (happy, squeeful!) go. You took us on a rollercoaster ride of lust and longing - it was sweet and hot and adorable all at once, and I was so pleased when everything came up roses at the end. :-)

I particularly liked the way you kept Tony and Control's voices in character throughout, and the way that they were always so polite and considerate of each other. For characters who are so direct and constant in their verbal affirmation of things, I thought their 'say-it-out-loud' kink worked *extremely* well - v. steamy indeed!

Oooh - I forgot to say: I've really enjoyed reading several of your stories, so would you mind if I added you to my f-list?

Hello there! I have been away FOREVER! And I'm honestly not sure how much I'll be around in the future. But I did want to thank you for your soooo kind words about my stories, and I'm so glad you enjoyed them. They were definitely a joy to write!
