Please note that most of these story recommendations were made before I reconsidered my warnings policy (i.e., before I decided to include warnings). Generally speaking, there's little of a dark or violent nature to warn for in these stories, but...caveat lector.

AlexElizabeth: "Role Model" (Saint George, Peter, Bredon, Others. "Viscount Saint-George never meant to make a role model out of his uncle, but somehow Peter wormed himself into Saint-George's conscience." Saint-George bonds first with his uncle and then with Peter's son...and in the process, becomes a man. Really lovely story.)

Atalan (childofatlantis on LJ): "Scarce Any Man" (Harriet celebrates her success and fights a sense of failure. Major spoilers for "The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club" and minor ones for "Strong Poison". Before Harriet meets Peter...there was Phillip. Excellent voices.)

Atalan (childofatlantis on LJ): "Where All Past Years Are"("Charles is not an imaginative man." A set of musings upon forgiveness. Set at Talboys, after marriages and children and friendships have all been accomplished. A very good and thoughtful look at Inspector Charles Parker.)

Dafna Greer: The Unlikely Story of a Nobleman's Daughter. (When Mary arrives with Inspector Parker in tow, Peter wakes up.)

hangingfire (hangingfire on Journalfen): "The Bleak Midwinter" "Christmas Eve, 1939. In which Lord and Lady Peter Wimsey look to the future." (Perfect Sayers-ian atmosphere)

hollimichele (holli on LJ/DW): "Go and Catch a Falling Star" (Crossover with Doctor Who. Doctor, 'The Ponds', Peter Wimsey, Harriet Vane Wimsey, Others. ""No," Harriet Vane said, having given it some thought. "I don't suppose I do believe in spontaneous human combustion."" A perfect blend of the two canons...and how much do I wish, now, that Peter and Harriet could be the Doctor's companions, at least for a little while.)

Ione (ionescribens on LJ): "The Conscience of the Queen" (It's after Busman's Honeymoon, and Harriet's receiving some very suspicious correspondence. Perfect Sayers voice.)

Keswindhover: Ring out, Wild Bells, to the Wild Sky. (Harriet/Peter. Harriet comes to the Radcliffe Infirmary to see an injured Lord Saint-George.)

Niamh St. George: "Wither Thou Goest". (Harriet Vane/Lord Peter Wimsey. After Busman's Honeymoon. It's their first Christmas, and the snow has fallen. Lovely.)

obstinatrix: "And The Better Man" (Gen, but with Wimsey/Bunter leanings. 'We were together since the War began. He was my servant, and the better man.' Lovely and gentle.)

Raven (loneraven on LJ): "Mercy Shall Follow Me" "Post-Busman's Honeymoon: the morning after the morning on which there was a death." (Gentle and a little sad, but with a great deal of love. Harriet's inner voice is especially good here.)

Sam Starbuck/Sam Vimes (copperbadge on LJ): Devil Took the Soldier Boy. (A Good Omens/Lord Peter Wimsey crossover. Gen. And absolutely lovely.)

Sienamystic (sienamystic on LJ): "Poor Hardworkin' Pleeshman" "Every Watson needs his Sherlock." (The start of the Wimsey & Parker partnership, with excellent voices throughout. Plus, Bunter, who - although voiceless here - is also wonderful)
