      I've obtained from Jane the ordering details of the zine into whch i
      dived most gleefully in Stirling:

      For ordering details for _Paper Cut_ (the zine containing "Married
      Dance"), e-mail Ruth Saunders at lexin@..., or write
      to
      Red Rose Press, 10 Loxley Hall, 48 Kingswood Road, Leytonstone,
      London.
      E11 1SG England.


      Although it contains R/M and crossovers, it is nonetheless, to my
      complete surprise, actually wonderful (Except for the ST:TOS
      crossover - no one could make that work, I refuse to even contemplate
      wasting eyeball time on it <g>)

      It may contain the odd POV switch <g> but it's literate, it's well
      characterised, and most importantly - it's Jane Carnall. What more do
      you want?

        However, just as a note, if you're a Duncan fan -- the characterization may
        not be to taste. It's not a big deal for most people, but he glowers a lot,
        and is hell-bent on revenge in Married Dance; plus in running through the
        fire a lot of the plot hinges on how Duncan has been 'too soft' on Richie,
        and some of that comes off as hero bashing.

        Like I said, a nit for most people, but it could be a big deal for others.

          i can't remember the story title, but the one I read had a similar
          theme, and actually i thought it wasn't too bad from the Duncan point
          of view. Worrying about Richie sleeping with Connor seemed totally
          consistent (yes, our favourite little dead Immortal is a real slut in
          the Jane view of things <g>). If anything, I thought Methos was
          slightly OOC, but there were a group of Methos worshippers who
          grabbed the zine off me, and none of them complained, that I recall
          (but then I can't recall other events that day according to her
          ladyship).

            I didn't read Married Dance, but I did read Running Through the Fire. Even
            though I like Duncan a lot and the mere thought of M/R creeps me out, I
            enjoyed that story tremendously. I liked getting a very different
            perspective on Duncan, one that worked and was interesting even though it
            isn't necessarily mine; and I was amazed by the way a more meaningful
            relationship between Methos and Richie was made plausible to me even though
            I really, really, really didn't want to go there. Okay, maybe the fact that
            no actual sex happened helped a little. <g>
