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.
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.
