    Summary

    Freddie Lyon has tattoos on his wrists and ten thousand followers on Twitter and scars from an anti-greed protest writ across his ribs in a Met copper’s hand, and he’s taken what he’s been given for a long, long time. Hector smiles beside him, old school charm covering up a hunger that’s entirely new millennium, Bel behind the camera, on a satellite phone to Syria, and Freddie’s spent his whole life waiting for the moment that he knows, now, is just around the corner, in the next email, wearing the new bruises doled out to him during the next riot, glass in his hair and blood on his hands and the camera rolling, rolling, rolling, and this isn’t about the truth, not exactly, but it’s about something wearing his bruises and his scars and the truth’s overcoat, all the same.

    A contemporary AU.

    Summary

    Three years after a coup by a faction within the Government, Britain is under the thumb of the brutal Regime. When a prominent advisor to the dictatorship defects with the location of a missing political prisoner, the Opposition—now the Resistance—finds itself in possession of a few unlikely allies and hurtling towards a war that could tear the country apart.
