CSI: DuCaine

Aww, guys!! Please don't cry!! :( I don't want you all to be sad!! Wow... I'm really glad you liked it. Maybe I should do more angst... hmmm.. But if you're all gonna cry, maybe not! :p ;) More coming soon. My hand will fall off from all the writing!! It's like I get an idea, and I have to write it down before I forget it! If there's no paper or pen in sight, NOOOO!! I have a hot couple to write for, gimmee a pen!! :lol:
too bad this is only a PG-13 board lol

my board, althought still under constuction has no such limits on fan-fiction... :devil: *hint, hint* and that's only because I'm a total self-confessed smut queen :p
Righty!! Here's another update. I'm really going off the deep end with this one!! :p
Every DuCainer remembers "Under Suspicion"... :) well, I'm just adding some interaction that SHOULD have happened, but it mightn't fit so well. :rolleyes: Oh well, it's romantic anyway!! :D

Hope you like this. I really enjoyed imaging the scenario, and writing it, especially Horatio's parts!! :D

... The episode as we know it...

Let me know what you thought. Back soon!! Maybe a treat for the weekend?
Hey all! :) Thank you so much for the great feedback you've been giving me. It inspires me so much, and greatly boosts my confidence as a writer. Thank you all again!! :D

Here's the next scene. Still continuing my "Under Suspicion" inspiration-filled quest, this contains direct references to the actual episode, so if anyone hasn't seen it yet, be prepared for spoilers! It can stand alone, but events from "Under Suspicion" are mentioned, and I don't want to cause havoc!! :p

Apart from that, I like it a lot, and actually did a bit of research for this one, so I'm really happy with it. I live for accuracy always, so here we go!!:

Tamara Williams... her father, that gun... it's really
been bothering me.
(She puts her hand to her forehead.)
I don't know... maybe I'm tired...

not alone...

right now.

blood off my hands.

Cut to:

fingers touched your wrist...

Cut to:
(His fingers gently pressing on Calleigh's wrist.
Calleigh takes a deep breath.)

HORATIO:... Your pulse... it was racing. Why?
Why were you so nervous?

(Calleigh looks up, staring into his eyes.)

CALLEIGH: I tried to be objective... tried to
focus on the evidence... but I couldn't... my
heart was fluttering... my pulse was fast
(She leans in slightly, her voice low.)
... I was touching you.

(She shuts her eyes.
Horatio gives a soft sigh, and closes his eyes
as well.)

HORATIO: I... I couldn't even watch you...
I didn't feel worthy...

(Calleigh laughs softly, her eyes half open.)

CALLEIGH: I could feel your hand through my
glove... the heat of it... I wanted to do more than
hold your hand... I wanted to hold you...
HORATIO: I needed someone to hold that day...

Cut to:
(Front shot of them as dialogue continues.)
CALLEIGH: What you went through, Horatio...
it was so hard for you.

by me. I felt... I actually felt more courage when
you were with me...

(Calleigh smiles.)
CALLEIGH: I was always by your side, Handsome.

Please comment and tell me how you liked it. Back soon with a little romance piece with a lovely song that I had a lot of fun writing! Keep you posted!! :)
Thanks again guys! :) The encouragement really helps!!

@ BG: I do write poems about H and Cal, not actual full songs, but I really love music. I would love to write songs, but poems and these scenes are my only calling now. But anything's possible, right? :D :)

What I'm planning next is a kinda music scene with an oldie type song. I don't want to give too much away, but it's by Lionel Richie, and I really like the emotion in it. That's coming up soon.

Won't be too long, I promise!!
You know I am one of your loyal followers if you decide to submit these to CBS, right? :lol: seriously I am.

They're great and I love them. I got an E- for the poetry part of my english class, maybe it was because of the fact it wasn't of my fave subject? who knows....:rolleyes: (you all know what my favorite subject is *snigger* )
Hey these scenes are superb, very well written and lovely and subtle..we DuCainer's need some decent stuff to keep the passion alive.
Am very impressed looking forward to more :)
