Aside from the weekly chapter of SoK I finally got around to (re-)post some of the prompt fics I wrote over the last few months, namely one Karl/Eric, one Sean/Orlando, and one Sean/Sala/Karl ficlet, in case anyone is interested.

As for horses: I saw the CUTEST thing last week which was a week old mini Shetland pony fast asleep and snoring. Nothing can beat that. Now, grown up horses and their men:

After that cock-up in Cheltenham Bloom was all smiles and jokes with the lads, just like he'd been before. Out on the gallops, though, while the results weren't exactly disappointing they didn't overjoy Sean in comparison to the last weeks of training. Something was off. )

One of our fillies decided that it was a fun pastime to rip her water bowl and the piping from the wall and - since we don't have an automatic stop when water leaks - effectively flood the entire stable. After six hours of shovelling soaking wet muck I think another bit of SoK is in order :).

Orlando’d heard the way people talked about Bean on the track; just recently he’d fired his two of his three stable jockeys and rumour had it that it had just been out of a whim, just because Bean had woken up that day with an even worse mood than he was usually said to be in. Didn’t take a genius to guess which kind of trainer he was, did it. But still, he felt this weird sort of anticipation pooling in his belly anyways. Who wouldn’t feel like that at the prospect of getting the chance to ride horses like Time Traveller? )

A/N: This is a re-write of my story ‘Sport of Kings’ that I wrote in 2006. Back then it was about 33k long and I always wanted to go back and fill the gaps. If you read the story back then I hope you’ll enjoy it again – I’ve added about 70k, re-wrote and fleshed out most of the original scenes and added quite a few new ones as well as new characters. If you read this for the first time I certainly hope you’ll have fun in the world of British racing.
A/N 2: I’ll be posting a chapter a week (there are 12 overall) so I have some time in between posts to do some last minute editing but the story is definitely finished and not a wip.
A/N3: Intro Post with pictures and links

On the first Monday in September Sean lost his only remaining jockey. Since he had eighty-eight steeplechasers in training in his yard, all just waiting for the season to begin and for someone to guide them over the high fences towards the finishing line, this loss left him in a bit of a pickle. Well. ‘Catastrophe’ probably was the more accurate description. )

So, before I start posting the new version of Sport of Kings – I’m hoping that this’ll be at the beginning of the week, I’m just waiting to hear back from my beta – I thought a bit of a pic spam might be in order. Just to introduce the extended cast... and since when do I need an excuse to post pictures of pretty people? Here they are then, followed by a couple of links about horse racing and stuff, just so I have it all in one place :). Enjoy the pretties!
