    Summary

    An AU where Drummond does not die but does marry Florence

    Edward Drummond is an ambitious young man who sees marriage as important for his career as a politician even though it does not greatly interest him. He becomes engaged to Florence Kerr the daughter of the Marques of Lothian and only then does he meet Lord Alfred Paget who awakens in him feelings he has never had before. As his and Alfred's relationship grows, Edward becomes increasingly worried about his impending marriage and when he and Alfred finally kiss he decides he cannot go through with it. Sadly though life is not that easy......

    going from the beginning of their relationship in 1841 and finishing in 1854 covering marriage, children, love, death, Russians, politics, illness, and war, and going from London to Wales to Russia to Italy, HDILT explores what would have happened had Edward lived and got married while still being in love with Alfred.

    Summary

    Drummond heroically jumps in front of the bullet meant for Sir Robert and gets hit in the process, though not fatally. Because modern medicine was, shall we say, unfortunate at the time, removing the bullet requires some fine single-malt assistance. The ever dignified hero of the day turns out to be a blurter when drunk, however. Hilarity ensues as Alfred tries to save the hero of the day from himself in turn...

    Basically, Drummond is an Honest Drunk.

    Summary

    Ambitious, intelligent, wealthy and handsome, Mr Edward Drummond has always done what was expected of him, including entering into an engagement with the honourable Lady Florence Kerr.
    However, he is slowly beginning to realise that his feelings for the beautiful and flirtatious Lord Alfred Paget are....not altogether respectable.

    This story begins with the visit to the French court which happens in Episode 5 of Season 2. However, this version of the story will explore the consequences after Edward Drummond is wounded outside Parliament, rather than killed. What happens when he refuses to give up on Alfred, but cannot leave Florence? And what happens if Florence starts to get an inkling of the truth?

    Fluff, drama, and angst abound!

    Summary

    Finally, Septimus and Cecilia's wedding is here and it is to be an unforgettable event for many of the guests in more than one way... And old face shows up to haunt Drummond - much to his indifference, which is much to that person's frustration. The reception allows for a lot of fun - too much fun, as Henry's eyes spot it, making him wonder why Alfred doesn't seem to want to marry at all. Harriet opens some doors she wishes she hadn't, and the ensuing breakfast of awkwardness is sure to embitter everyone's morning tea. Secrets are discovered and suspicions awakened and more intrigue at the happy couple's wilder than planned send-off.
