  1. Summary

    Sometimes Nicola Murray is more competent than Malcolm suspects, and sometimes Malcolm Tucker is more human than Nicola expects. This series explores what we might not have seen during season 3. Eventual canon divergence (because I want to believe that season 4 happened in some dark mirror universe).

    Summary

    Of all the Ministers Malcolm expects to find pulling an all-nighter after the election is called, Nicola Murray is definitely not at the top of the list. As Malcolm begins to tumble into a verbal tirade he really should refrain from, he beseeches the God of Pissed Ministers to let there be a second bottle kicking around the office somewhere so that later, when she uses all this against him as she invariably will, he can write it off as her being paralytic. And also insane. Sadly Malcolm Tucker is not a man upon whom any deity has smiled. [Malcolm and Nicola discuss her foiled plans to move to America in 3.08, and Malcolm makes a rare admission.]

    Summary

    Malcolm stops the second he's through the door, stares right at her before demanding, "Am I going to enjoy hearing your explanation for how you've lost your fucking mind?"

    "Yes," Nicola says, the bitterness rising in her throat, ignoring Terri standing right behind Malcolm, able to hear every word. "Because clearly that's what happened, I decided to end a twenty year marriage to the father of my kids on a whim. Got me all figured out, haven't you." She wants, so badly, for her voice to stay hard and dismissive, but despite Nicola's best efforts, a wobble slips through right at the very end.

    (AU, set during Series 3.)
