Title: Broadchurch: Sins Of The Father
Date of commencement: September 22 2013
Date of completion: December 24 2014
Series: Broadchurch, a sequel to the original, and following on from Life Without Joe
Authors: tkel_paris and tardis_mole
Summary: Two years after Danny's death, life is slowly getting back to normal in Broadchurch. But Hardy's happy life is about to be turned upside down by a spectre from the past he had hoped had been laid to rest. Someone from his past wants to talk to him, someone wants revenge, someone wants to see him ruined. But it's not one 'someone'. But first, he must face the girl in his garden.
Disclaimer: We own nothing, but this is based on Broadchurch by Chris Chibnal, with added clues from the novel by Erin Kelly. We gain no financial benefit nor gratuities, only the enjoyment from writing and working together on this epic journey, shared for the enjoyment of others.
Dedication: Chris Chibnal, long time friend. bas_math_girl, for her beta. And each other for hopefully not ruining each other's lives for too long during the writing part.
Warning: If you have not watched Broadchurch in its entirety, do not read this. We mean it. You will be spoiled. Stop and go back. Now. Ideally you have seen the entire show, not just what was aired on BBC America if you live on that side of the pond, but this is understandable in either case. Also, if you have not read tardis_mole's Life Without Joe, that's okay. It's possible to read this without reading that, if you're not on Moley's approved list. You'll probably find this makes a little more sense if you have read it, but you should be fine without it. Take the time to read Erin Kelly’s novelization, if you can, as it provided certain details that helped with writing this. Though you won’t need to rely on it.
Authors' Notes: See Episode One, Part One. They're a bit long to include in each post.
Episode Three, Part Seven: Family Outing - First Section
Tess put their bags on the bed and sighed with relief. “Well, at least we got the same room as we had before,” she noted.
“Yeah, that’s a stroke of luck. That other place was nice, but the shared bathroom was going to get on my wick at some point.”
Daisy sat on the single bed by the window and winced horribly. “Mum, my belly’s hurting.”
“Didn’t you take your tablets when you went back for them?”
“Yeah, I did,” Daisy replied. “But I think it’s something else. I think I’m coming on,” she said quietly.
Tess made a show of sympathy, but her cycles had never bothered her. “Did you bring some things?”
“No, I wasn’t expecting it. So I only brought a small pack.”
Tess got up. “I’ll have to go to the chemist.”
“I’ll go,” Daisy said. “Did you bring the Paracetamol?”
“Yeah, I’ve got plenty of that. Will you be all right?”
Daisy nodded, holding her hand out for two tablets. “Yeah, I’m used to it now.”
“What are you two on about?” Bruce put in. “Daisy, you are not going anywhere.”
“Stop it, Bruce. She needs to go to the chemist before it shuts.”
“For what?” he demanded. “Daisy! You take one step out that door and so help you!”
“I am not talking about personal things with you. I wouldn’t even talk about them to my dad!” she stormed. She closed the door behind her and was gone.
“For goodness sake, Bruce! What is with you today?” Tess asked.
“I don’t like you and her keeping secrets from me!”
Tess sighed heavily. “It’s not a secret! All women go through it. She’s a child. She’s too embarrassed to talk about it in front of you. Do you have to make a scene about everything?”
For once, Bruce backed down. “Why didn’t you just say she was on her period?”
“Bruce! You son is in the room. He shouldn’t have to hear about it at his age,” she reminded him tartly. “Now, let’s get unpacked and head back to the beach. I want to catch a few more rays before we head to the arcades. I promised Ben I’d get that Minion toy from the grabber machine.”
“Yey!” Ben crowed, bouncing on his feet.
