#13 - A bar of soap goes a long way


[Re: this chapter. I think I’ve put too much effort in figuring out how Bucky felt about his personal hygiene. I imagine he’d be the type to groom himself like a peacock (a line I was originally going to use, but I dropped it at the last minute). tl;dr it’s about smells]

[FYI I’m on twitter!!!! I’ll add you back if you say hello or whatever you want to say to me.]

There’s More to Lily Su’s Art Than Fetus-Shaped Soap

When people see the image of a human fetus, they often associate it with abortion and the warring political perspectives that come with that issue. But to artist and entrepreneur Lily Su, the image of an unborn baby symbolizes ultimate comfort. After creating a series of light boxes featuring images of developing embryos, she moved on to sculpting her ideas in soap. The unexpected new medium allowed customers to interact with her art in ways that aren’t permitted in traditional art galleries (a Basquiat canvas wouldn’t be of much use to you in the shower). The result was a life-size 12- to 13-week-old soap fetus measuring 2.5 inches incased in an amniotic sac.

In 2012, Lily launched an Etsy shop, Yours in Soap, to sell her Castile creations, which included other pieces like human feet, the male form, and realistic-looking fruit. A few months later, the now extinct site Regretsy featured the fetus soap as an item that “Rick Santorum probably bought his wife for Mother’s Day.” This brought a lot of positive and negative attention to Yours in Soap from angry people who mistakenly thought Lilly’s product had a political agenda.

Week 13 Keeping Track

Repetitive due to different sources

Mainly DS, Metro, ITV and Mags - I update it as the mag spoilers come in

Week 13 (28th - 1st April)

Tuesday 29th March

Moira tells Holly that she’ll be working at the garage to pay back her debts. Later, Moira confides in Adam that Holly has been taking drugs again and she’s had to pay off her dealer. Moira is determined to keep her daughter safe this time, but is that really the end of it?

Victoria is excited when Megan says she’ll sort out an agreement with her street food business

Wednesday 30th March

Belle tries to scupper Rishi’s plans to buy the Dingles’ as she shows him round the house, pointing out false concerns including various graves in the garden. When Lisa realises what she’s up to, she makes it clear to her daughter how selfish she is being - already grumpy after receiving her decree nisi through the post. Back at the factory, Joanie advises Belle that she needs to grow up as Lisa needs her support. (blah!)

Cain catches Holly taking money from a customer and demands she hands it over. She’s thwarted when he says that he knows about Dean wanting more cash and warns her that she needs him and her mum onside. At the same time, Charity is surprised when Moira has a proposal for her.

Thursday 31st March

Liv gets on the wrong side of Chas

Chas is suspicious to see drawers have been rummaged through and Noah tells her it was Liv. Over at the shop, Liv is having an argument with David over the cost of things and starts throwing fruit at him (pineapple guest star). Aaron catches her and gives David his money back. However, Chas is not pleased and makes a suggestion that stuns them both.


As Chas makes a suggestion that stuns both Aaron and Liv, a decision rests in the stressed out brother’s hands.


Chas makes her feelings about the troublesome teen very clear to son Aaron.  However, despite his siblings bad behaviour, the loyal livesy lad (say quick 5 times) is determined to let Liv stay with him, unaware that she’s been texting Gordon

Vics party - Robert and Adam drinking game :o)

Chrissie and Andy are enjoying their risky trysts, but Victoria makes life difficult by trying to play matchmaker with Tracy and Andy during her birthday party in the pub.

Cain tricks Holly into getting in the back of the van. He then locks her in and tells her to ring Dean, as they’re setting him up.

On a secluded road, they’re soon joined by Dean. Cain offers him a deal, if he stays away from Holly. Will it work, or will Cain’s plan backfire?

Cain attacks a henchman. Holly is devastated as Dean drives off, but is astonished to realise that Cain has a further plan.  

Later, Cain pulls up near a bus stop and tells Holly to go and to never come back. However, will Holly regain the upper hand when she threatens to tell Moira what happened between them today?

Meanwhile, Belle cuts her hand on some broken glass at the factory. As Dr Bailey attends to her, she inflates her role in the business and skirts around the truth when it comes to her age. Dr Bailey is clearly impressed with her, but is he treading dangerous waters? / The attraction is mutual when Belle grows infatuated with Dr Bailey (wtf)

Friday 1st April

Liv proves to be more of a handful than Aaron predicted

Aaron decides Liv is going to stay with him, but she is conflicted when she gets a text from Gordon. They meet and Gordon manipulates information from her, before she agrees to find him further proof (of Robert paying Ryan). Later, Robert is unnerved by Liv’s questions. As Robert explains his worries to Aaron, Liv secretly listens in, recording the conversation. Will Robert let slip about Ryan?


Liv is pushed once more by Gordon to keep digging and Robert becomes unnerved by her constant questions.

Thinking he and Aaron are alone, he is finally able to talk more frankly and begins discussing his fears over Ryan, the boy he paid to make allegations against Gordon. As sneaky Liv overhears and begins recording the conversation, is the entire trial about to collapse?


After manipulation from Gordon Liv secretly records Robert and Andy... (you would think Soap Life could spot the difference by now?)

Moira is still incredulous that Holly never told her at the time she had relapsed. Holly explains how she got clean again and promises not to let Moira down, but can she stay true to her word?

Week 14 (4th - 8th April)

Monday 4th April

Liv ends up feeling guilty when she overhears Aaron telling Chas that they can trust her.  Having second thoughts, Liv goes to see Gordon and announces their arrangement is off.  Angered by his daughters disloyalty, Gordon’s dark side reappears and he snaps. (guessing Friday - if not Monday)


Liv feels guilty when she overhears Aaron telling Chas they can trust her. She tells Gordon that she believes Aaron and doesn’t want to help him anymore. Gordon becomes dark and snaps at Liv.

When Liv returns home upset, she drops herself in it when she mentions Ryan. Aaron is furious when he realises that Liv has been spying on them for Gordon, but his anger turns to worry when Liv runs away. Aaron bravely goes to confront Gordon, but what will Liv do with her recording?

Meanwhile, Chrissie thinks Bernice is jealous of her fling with Andy, but Bernice agrees to stay quiet about the fling. Bernice finds Andy’s watch and tells Lawrence that it’s Robert’s, but will her secrecy backfire?


Following her argument with Gordon, tearful Liv returns to the pub, but drops herself in it with Aaron when she mentions Ryan.  Realising Liv has been spying on him, Aaron’s in bits… But his anger turns to worry when Liv does a runner back to Gordon, Aaron races to rescue her from his clutches.  What will happen when he comes face to face with his evil father again?


Aaron is furious to discover Liv has been spying on him for Gordon  / Aaron’s angry when he realises Gordon’s been using Liv… and goes to see Gordon himself

Liv goes on the run and Aaron confronts Gordon when he discovers she taped his and Roberts Conversation

Liv will be on side on 4th of April

Lawrence gets the wrong idea / Bernice finds Andy’s watch and tells Lawrence it’s Roberts but will her secrecy backfire? / Lawrence thinks Andy Bedded Bernice

Holly enjoys being flirtatious with Cain

Tuesday 5th April

Robert is horrified to learn from Andy that he’s been seeing Chrissie. But it’s not Robert that Andy needs to worry about, as Lawrence makes a secret call…

Robert is also shocked to hear that Liv has a recording of him and wants to go to the police before she can. It’s too late, as DS Wise suddenly arrives and Robert worries he’s jeopardised Aaron’s case.


Rob’s stressed out when he discovers Liv has a recording of him admitting the truth about Ryan, and is determined to get to the police before the sneaky schoolgirl.  Unfortunately it’s to late - as DS Wise arrives, Mr Sugden is terrified his illegal deal will ruin things for Aaron (happy he is worried for Aaron and not himself).  Could the case against Gordon collapse before the trial has started? (I don’t think Liv hands the recording in - but just a guess)


As DS Wise arrives, is Robert about to make a terrible mistake and destroy the entire case against Gordon?


Robert fears he’s ruined Aaron’s case against Gordon and is thrown when he learns Andy and Chrissie are a couple - but his brother isn’t Andy’s only problem (busy day for poor Robert)

Robert’s horrified to learn from Andy he’s been seeing Chrissie but it’s not Robert whom Andy needs to worry about as an angry Lawrence makes a call!  (thugs beat up Andy)

Andy tells Bernice that he and Chrissie are going to be honest with Lawrence about their relationship, but Lawrence interrupts them and immediately gets the wrong idea.

Wednesday 6th April

When Robert and Aaron go out to a pub for a drink together, Aaron is crestfallen when all Robert can do is rant about Chrissie and Andy – could Robert still be holding a torch for his ex wife or is it more the case that he just finds it weird her being with his brother?


Victoria is incredulous to learn that Robert and Aaron have gone for a drink together, but Aaron is feeling sidelined as a jealous Robert only talks about Andy and Chrissie

But the date isn’t much fun for Aaron who has to listen to Robert yapping on about Andy and Chrissie. Chrissie, meanwhile, believes Robert was behind the attack on Andy.

Chrissie becomes convinced that Robert was behind Andy’s attack.

Moira is shocked to find Andy battered and slumped in the road and calls an ambulance.

When Lawrence sees Chrissie cradling an injured Andy, will the penny drop that he’s got it wrong? And will his involvement be exposed?

Lachlan encourages Gabby to lie

Moira finds Andy lying badly beaten in the street - and

Chrissie mistakenly believes that Robert’s jealousy drove him to attack his brother

. Lachlan pushes Gabby into lying, and Jacob is not happy about the pressure he puts on her.

Victoria is less than pleased when Robert and Aaron go for a drink together

, while Zak is equally put out to learn that Joanie is going to be working in the office with Rishi.

Thursday 7th April

The drama unfolds in the wake of Lawrence hiring thugs to teach Andy a lesson, having wrongly assumed that he is having an affair with Bernice when in fact he is actually seeing Chrissie. As Andy is left in a terrible state, Robert figures out that Lawrence was the one responsible and is soon blackmailing him.

When Chrissie later discovers the truth, she is horrified and angrily tells her dad that he is no different to Robert. As recent events get on top of him, Lawrence suffers a cardiac arrest and collapses to the ground in agony.

Fighting for breath, Lawrence panics and could be on the edge of death – which is when Robert walks in.

A nasty attack could mean no way back, while the culprit’s future fades to black. But whose morals no longer lack?


Robert figures out that Lawrence was behind the attack and threatens to use it against him. Chrissie is shocked to realise that her dad was the one who hired the thugs and Lawrence is devastated when Chrissie compares him to Robert.

Lawrence suddenly sinks to the floor in the middle of a cardiac arrest, alone and panicking. Robert arrives, but will he help Lawrence or leave him to die?

Bernice is rocked when Chrissie tells her that Lawrence was behind Andy’s attack.

Later, Chrissie comes across an old letter from Ronnie Hale. Keen to find out if he could be her real dad, Chrissie looks him up on a search engine and it’s clear she’s not letting this go.

Robert won’t get into trouble at the trial

Gordon’s court case starts… Will Chas mess things up for Aaron? (chas?)

Aaron’s self-harming comes from the terrible things Gordon did to him, if Gordon’s found not guilty could Aaron decide his life is not worth living(from soap life though)

‘Aarons made it clear to everyone he wants his father dealt with by the courts.. But will he still feel the same way if the courts decide Gordon has no case to answer and set him free? We think not’

“As Gordon’s trial begins, vulnerable Aaron finds himself leaning on Robert - but is the bad boy good for him?”

“Hey, uh, d’you mind getting the door for me?”

Delivering boxes of soap would be easier if he had more hands, honestly - if the door was a push he might’ve managed, but alas this shop had a front door you pulled and with four boxes stacked in his arms Leon didn’t have a spare hand to grab the handle. He was lucky enough to accost a passerby, though, and he gave them his politest smile so they knew he wasn’t a murderer.
