    Summary

    It wouldn't take a former psych major to pick up on the fact that this isn't easy for Tim, but Lucy's background definitely helps; she once wrote a paper on how revisiting scenes of trauma is among the most effective techniques for unlocking buried memories, and given Tim's staunch opposition to so much as thinking about his father, she's betting he hadn't exactly prepared himself for what today might bring.

    (A reimagining and continuation of the first Chenford scene in "The Rookie" 4x09, "Breakdown"; fulfills the "Bradford's house" prompt on my Chenford Bingo 2021 card.)

    Summary

    When she rests her head on his shoulder, there's a knot in his chest that unties itself, a fountain of fondness that blooms.

    Summary

    "You really watch 'Doctor Who'?"
    He shrugs. "It's interesting. He has a lot on his shoulders."
    It's such a Tim answer that she can't help grinning. "Who's your favorite Doctor?"
    "The woman," he answers immediately, and, yeah, that's fair.
    "OK, who's your favorite companion?"
    He affixes her with a winning smile. "You."

    Summary

    The woman in charge spotted Tim and lit him up before he was even within speaking distance. “What the hell is one of your people doing walking into my operation?” she demanded. “She blew the whole thing. I nearly lost one of my people.” She waved a hand in the direction of a woman so young and short that she looked like a child.

    “Why the hell didn’t you notify the LAPD of the op?” Tim fired back. “We were responding to a fucking noise complaint and now I’ve got an officer headed to the hospital.”

    The woman’s face softened a moment. “The morgue. An armor piercing round tore through her vest. She may be headed to the hospital, but she’ll end up in the morgue.”

    Tim’s world went black. All he could hear was ringing in his ears. Then it cleared and he was facing the woman whose sloppiness had just cost Lucy her life. He lunged for her.
