    Summary

    Modern Day Field of Blood/Doctor Who AU
    Pete Mclltchie/Clara Oswald
    Pete doesn't die in this universe

    Clara Oswald is a famous young actress who visits Glasgow and gives an interview to Daily News with one Peter Mclltchie. She chose him to give her interview to because he was the only one who treated her with respect in that newspaper office. She also finds him funny and pleasant to be around. She doesn't care that he is twice her age or has grey hair. She didn't even really care that he was an alcoholic and smoked because he was a decent man. Over the next few years she flies back and forth to Glasgow when she was free to see him. Pete on the other hand is totally smitten with this beautiful young woman that has taken a shine to him. He knows he'll never be more that a friend or fling to her but he wished he could be her husband. He knew he was to far below her on the social scale because he was poor so he just enjoyed the time he was allowed to have with her. That is of course all a matter of opinion. Clara has a different opinion.

    Summary

    For a while it has upset me that poor Dr Pete died sitting in the pub. (Although some might say that was a great way to go!)
    I realise that this is not a fluffy, cutesy piece, so please be aware of that. I won't be in the least bit offended if you don't want to read it.
    I hope I've tackled the subject with compassion, and not in a saccharine way, which is not how I view death.
    I wanted to write an AU which has a different ending. So here it is. Tissues at the ready......

    Summary

    Dr. Pete decides to leave Scotland and the Daily News in hopes of starting over and not being so miserable. He settles in a small town on the English coast called Broadchurch. He buys the old Newsagent shop and just wants to be left alone. He decides that it is high time for him to be himself which includes not hiding the fact that he is gay. He soon finds out that's easier said than done when he gets beaten up by a bunch of townsfolk that hate gays. He winds up meeting Alec Hardy and they are both attracted to each other. Both of them have a lot in common because they are miserable, grumpy, antisocial and have a heart of gold when you manage to look hard enough. When a 5 year old girl Peter befriends turns up dead he winds up the first target because he is new in town and the girl was seen around him a lot. Eventually They all settle down in a house together and make one big happy family.

    Summary

    I've had this story buzzing around my head for sometime now, but was reluctant to start it, as I had no idea where to take it. (And I was concentrating on Malcolm!)
    There are not many Dr Pete stories, and all the ones I've read feature Clara. I've enjoyed those immensely but very much wanted to steer clear of that myself.
    My female character is entirely made up, she is a little older than Clara, and somewhat damaged. I have set the story in 2011, when the programme was broadcast, rather than when it was actually set. In this universe Pete is not dying, I need to keep him alive so that he can mend! The nurse in me likes to try to fix people....even if they are my story characters!! It's going to be a slow burner and a descriptive piece, which I hope won't be too boring.
    I'm fully aware that we actually know very little about Pete. It's a small role. For me, that is not terribly important. The scenes that Peter Capaldi is in are so compelling, and I find it one of his most moving and endearing roles.
    Coming from a medical background I find his portrayal spot on (I'm not sure whether he has personally witnessed alcoholism or someone suffering from cancer, but it shows just what a fine actor he really is.)
