Two versions of the same story. Two stories in one, like ‘A Day in the Life’ by the Beatles, one by McCartney, one by Lennon, fused together to make something brilliant. Not that I’m claiming this is brilliant. Ripper plot my daughter’s, Hathaway’s plot mine.
This is definitely an AU story. Not canon, not my Seasons AU. No, you need to slide a long way through the multiverse for this one.
Hathaway gets a boyfriend. It turns out he’s not a very nice one. Lewis is incandescent with jealously. Hobson is fed up with Lewis. Then the bodies of teenagers start piling up. The media move in. everyone is stressed. Why is there a victim every time Hathaway has a date? And does Hathaway think anyone in the office believes his lame excuses for his bruises?
Version one has the entire plot without the details of abuse, sex and gore. Sorry darlings. But it also has much more on the victims and their families, who my daughter may have stolen from various children’s fiction and relocated them in time and space to 21st Century Oxford. Oh, and aged by about 4-8 years.
