Tea and Militancy Part I by Finn Rated: General starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 52]
Summary:

Miss Durrant's replacement, Susie Smith, arrives at the Chalet School fresh from jazzy London, and tries to settle into the quiet life of the Austrian Tyrol. She expects peace, quiet, and even boredom, but she gets rather more than she bargained for, with blizzards, ice carnivals, problem pupils, eccentric neighbours, and a dangerous flirtation to keep her well and truly occupied.

Originally published on the CBB, but subsequently tidied up and a couple of major mistakes edited out!

Summary:

After the ice carnival, Susie needs to re-establish the bounds of her relationship with Nell, and matters come to a head when Matron Wilson steps in. An eventful trip to Spartz and the ensuing row force Rafaela to take a long look at her behaviour, and Evelyn seemingly cannot escape her world of fear. On top of this, there is the small matter of the junior school thief to be considered. As the end of term approaches, will any of them be able to find a solution to their troubles?

Summary:

This is an odd story, mildly fantastical and not T&M canon! It assumes Sarah and co. have moved up to the Sonnalpe for the Christmas period, or that they're living there, or something, and that Rafaela is staying with them. It doesn’t fit with canon, and it’s not T&M canon either - just a bit of holiday silliness. Hope you enjoy!

Gone Without A Trace by Finn Rated: General starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 64]
Summary:

 

A story involving fairies, witches, music and Susie Smith. Those of you who don't know Susie, do please still read, as it will involve a lot of old faces as well as some new ones.

The title will be changed as soon as I've thought of a better one. The whole story is dedicated to Kathryn, who nagged for Susie to return to the CS to become the Miss Smith that is mentioned in Summer Term as Erica's form mistress :)

This is most emphatically NOT the future of T&M, for reasons which will become abundantly clear!
