    Summary

    C*nt believe this hasn't been done before.

    This is an alternate Austen-inspired universe with a very competent Nicola, fluff and a little smut.

     Sorry. This is all about literature. Serioufuckingly.

    Summary

    “It started with tiredness.
    Malcolm looked at his papers and couldn’t process anything. His brain wouldn’t let him. He needed sleep, he knew that. He just didn’t want to admit it.”
    Labour won the general election in 2010, much to the surprise of everyone. Malcolm goes back to his job as the Labour spin doctor, but over the autumn, gets progressively sicker and is eventually diagnosed and hospitalised with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia, a rare and particularly aggressive blood cancer.
    He has to straddle the line between his sickness, his family, his friends and his work all while dealing with the side effects from his treatments and the medical interventions designed to save his life.
    The worst part? He has to watch the lives of his loves ones crumble around him while he and they all try so desperately to hold it together.

    Summary

    Malcola doing it.

    This is my second ever fan fic and I am slowly improving. I am constantly rewriting the chapters to get the voices "right", well a little better ;)

    So this is a work in progress rather than something I am completely satisfied with.

    Summary

    "You're the one I want, you're my number one. And you've turned down every hand that has beckoned me to come."

    When Nicola is uncharacteristically cheery and declines to attend a work event because James is taking her out for their anniversary, Malcolm is sure something is up. It turns out he's right.

    Summary

    Cabinet reshuffle day, the shit has increased beyond belief, and Malcolm doesn't like change. Especially when his new assistant, Ivy Fisher, is just as coarse as he is.. and a tad hot.

    [Content warning: it's the same level of obscenity as The Thick Of It. Mildly ablest, sexist, homophobic, and fatphobic language, of course. I am in no way any of those things, I'm simply mirroring the writing of the show.]

    Summary

    "Behind Blue Eyes" by The Who

    No one knows what it's like
    To be the bad man
    To be the sad man
    Behind blue eyes
    No one knows what it's like
    To be hated
    To be fated
    To telling only lies
    But my dreams
    They aren't as empty
    As my conscience seems to be [...]

    Malcolm has a way of doing things, a role he has to play because somebody has to. And, being honest, he is very good at it. He lives alone, within this part. He is not Malcolm Tucker anymore, he is The Malcolm Tucker. He is well aware of this and has resigned to it. Over the past years, that is how he lived his life. However this is soon to change as Malcolm and Lucy Davis, a new PR advisor, set foot into each others lives. As they work together they will find in each other a way to reconnect with themselves, with parts of them they both thought were long lost. Malcolm begind to wonder if he could stop being alone, or even more, if he could stop letting himslef be alone.

    Summary

    We all know the story. It is as old as time, but is it really? I am going to retell the story of The Thick of it but out of Sam's perspective and her relationship with the one and only Malcolm Tucker.

    Summary

    Nicola has a good feeling about this evening, despite the fact that Malcolm is insisting on tagging along. She and Glenn had spent a whole afternoon working on her speech earlier in the week (a funny speech, for a change), she’ll get to spend some all-too-rare time with her sister, and hopefully Jean will act as a buffer between Malcolm and his unique brand of ‘moral support’.

    Secretary of State Nicola Murray is representing HM Government at the Excellence in Policing Awards. Her sister, Chief Superintendent Jean Innocent, is one of the award winners. Malcolm Tucker is in attendance to make sure it all goes to plan. What could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    That fucking ungrateful shit! He’s been busting his balls for Tom for years because, despite his many and glaring inadequacies, he’s the least worst leadership prospect the Party has. And in return the traitorous bastard is bringing back that rat Fleming in the deluded belief that anyone could do a better job than Malcolm has at stopping this fucking useless Government from eating itself alive.

    “Judas!” he screams, drawing a small measure of satisfaction from the sound his mug makes as it shatters against the wood panelling. A trail of brackish coffee drips down the antique oak. Irreplaceable, two hundred year-old panelling. He couldn’t give a shit.

    In which Malcolm and Nicola struggle to cling on to their jobs and their sanity. The last installment in the Occasional flashes of competence series.

    Summary

    "She wonders whether all those people that think she's so bloody smug would leave her alone if they knew what her life is really like. But she’s already been in the public eye long enough to know that they'd probably just mock her even more. Haha Nicola Murray’s life’s a mess and haha she’s brought it all on herself and haha she deserves everything that she gets. She’s a useless wife and a useless politician and a useless mother."

    In which Nicola's family life gets very complicated and Malcolm tries to contain the fallout. Rated M for canon-typical language and references to drug abuse and violence.

    Summary

    ..... or maybe not. Nicola's been away for a week selling her healthy choices initiative, doing press up and down the country. The very day she's back she does a... less than perfect interview, Malcolm's straight there for a great big shouting match.

    Summary

    "I-" Nicola stares at him with a baffled, panicky look on her face and then makes a dash for the door, shoving him out of the way in her haste.

    "Don't you fuckin' run away from me!" he shouts, following her at a walk as she dashes across the office in the direction of the ladies. "And don't try to hide from me in the fuckin' toilet! Do you really think I'm goin' to let that come between you and the bollockin' of your life?!"

    In which Nicola needs a friend and Malcolm comes over all Carole King.

    Summary

    One-The amount of chances that Amanda Lane has left in the British government. [Also the amount of friends that she has, but she's not on Facebook so who's counting?]

    Two-Names of people that begin with 'M' who are making her life difficult. One just really wants to kill her. The other is her ex-boyfriend, so, on second-thoughts, he'd probably quite like to kill her too sometimes.

    Three-For what she's not seeing here.

    Four-The amount of chapters until this story ends and it could all be too late.

    For the Raven is coming. The Raven is coming to get them all.

    Summary

    Nicola’s expression switches from unidentified to angry. “You absolute, despicable turd of a human being!” She advances, jabbing her left forefinger at him. “You’re a fucking vampire! You feed off other people's misery because it distracts you from the emptiness of your sad, lonely life!”

    “Believe me darlin', I’d rather not be wasting my weekend dealing with the wreckage from your car crash of a personal life.”

    In which everyone wishes they weren't up this early on a Sunday. Rated T for canon-typical language.
