Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 288, Week 2 – Reverse fandom – Last of the Summer Wine at tw100

Summary: An old lady finds new inspiration for her romantic daydreams.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

A/N: Episode title used is (obviously) The Kiss And Mavis Poskitt.

Mavis Poskitt had never married.

There had been suitors a-plenty back when she was young, but her beau had died in the war and none of the others could hold a candle to his memory.

She lived out her dreams of romance through the pages of lurid novels, full of manly men and maidens with heaving bosoms; until she moved house.

That’s when she first saw them, late one night, under a streetlight. Her handsome young neighbour and his dashing boyfriend, locked in a passionate embrace.

It set her old heart a-flutter!

Now her daydreams are all about that kiss!

The End


So true! Mavis is fangirling to her heart's content. She spends a lot of time looking out her window, hoping to catch a glimpse of the lovers. So much better than TV!

She's knitting them warm woolies for Christmas while she watches, lol!
Those two embracing would send anyones heart aflutter.

great work.
Little old ladies are no more immune than the rest of us, lol!

Thank you!
I'd totally daydream about those two kissing, too!

Oh, wait... :)
Only just realised you already do? ;)

Now Mavis just needs a computer and she can write her own RPFs involving her handsome neighbours. She's found a whole new hobby!

Thank you!
Welcome to the wonderful world of slash, Mavis!

Talk about your room with a view. :)
She's very pleased. She wasn't too happy at first about having to move, but now she thinks its the best thing she ever did!

Just look at her, sitting in her window, tapping away on her computer, writing stories about those two handsome men...

Thank you!
and now the old lady can have her own dreams about that gorgeous couple!and we still dream about those kisses too ....
It's certainly brightened her life! She'll be baking them cookies next to say thank you!

Thank you! *hugs*
Hey! Why are you writing drabbles about me, LOL.
ROFLMAO! You're not THAT much older than me y'know!

I reckon Mavis must be nearly 90, happily perring out from behind her net curtains... We used to have a neighbout like that.
And we have a new Janto fangirl! :D
Just goes to show you're never too old to appreciate two gorgeous guys kissing!
Yeah that will be me one day. Lol.
I'm way ahead of you, lol!

Thank you!
Sooo sweet! This is so lovely. How could she resist ? I couldn't... *dumb smile* This is exactly I need after a so shitty day. So thank you. ;)... I think that I'm gonna have daydream too... soon, very soon...
Thank you! Glad I could brighten your day a little =)

Hope you have sweet dreams!

(Mavis never realised two men together could look so HOT! Her eyes have been opened, she's thrown away her romance novels and started finding m/m fiction online instead. She'a a very progressive old lady!)
There's life in the old girl yet! LOL!!
Jack has that effect on people - watching that kiss has rejuvenated Mavis!

Thank you!
Aww, that's really sad that she never found anyone to measure up to her beau.

But at least she gets to watch her neighbours now :-)
I'm sure she had plenty of fun, she just never married any of her boyfriends ;)

Mavis the fangirl, happy as a clam peeping out at them from behind her curains, lol!

Thank you
I have that same daydream too. Lovely thought seeing them kissing in the lamplight.
It is, and it's very romantic. Mavis watches them every chance she gets now!

Thank you!
Mavis agrees!

Thank you!
and nostalgic...
Thank you!

They've made Mavis a very happy old lady!
