General Fics[edit | hide]
Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.
Murderess by Amata le Fay (Warnings: contains spoilers for the culprit's identity in And Then There Were None; the title itself is a spoiler, which is why it has been spoiler-coded for your convenience)
- Recommended by JP
- Synopsis: An alternate solution for whom the killer might have been and how they did it.
- Comments: There is not much I can say without having to overuse spoiler markings, but I can say it is a well-done, though very dark interpretation of the character in question, exploring their already-established insanity in canon and expanding on it and what it might have led to, leading to one possible solution.
Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.
Coffee and Cognac by Gwenhwyvar (Warnings: Slash, though nothing sexually explicit)
- Recommended by JP
- Pairings: Poirot/Hastings
- Synopsis: Upon reuniting with Poirot, Hastings reflects on his "admiration" for him, not realizing that these feelings may in fact go deeper.
- Comments: Wonderfully done, and could almost be an actual short story by Agatha Christie herself (had it not been for the time period the Poirot novels were written in, of course). The writing style very nearly matches Agatha Christie's, though its style would more closely match the TV series. While Poirot and Hastings' explored relationship does not go further than gentle gestures (again, because of the time period the stories take place in, fitting in rather—quite saddingly—well), the ending is still quite touching and sweet.
