characters: Broots, Marcone

"Uh, sorry, Miss Pa-Gard!" my latest interviewee aimed desperately in the direction of Miss Gard, hunching slightly and stumbling around her towards the chair, avoiding any contact. He was exceptionally anxious around her - I have seen people who knew she was a Valkyrie face her with more composure.

I had been introduced to him a few days earlier. He had been in a rest area with his daughter when they had stumbled into a situation involving the walking dead. It had been his reaction that had caught my attention. He had burst out with "Seriously, could people just stay dead, for once?" and pulled a gun from the glove compartment. He had sounded as though the sarcasm was the only thing holding off the panic, true, and his hands were shaking hard enough that he fumbled the gun, but he hadn't run screaming. A brief conversation had informed me that he was a computer tech looking for work. Observation had informed me that he was desperate and on the run, evidently living in his car. I had invited him to interview for a position. Since our first meeting, I had managed to determine that his name was Jonathan Broots, and he was in fact one of the finest computer experts in the country. He had won sole custody of his daughter, Deborah, from his wife, on the grounds of parental neglect. I had yet to determine what he was running from.

Throughout our interview, I carefully led the conversation towards various possibilities. As the interview wound down, with Mr. Broots apparently unfazed by the . . . unique responsibilities of the job, I led the conversation towards his daughter

The submissive behavior . . . stopped. He leaned forward slightly, hands gripping the arms of the chair, as he stared at me with narrowed eyes. "I looked you up before I came here," he said, lips turned up in an expression that missed being a smile by a mile and any sort of happiness. He continued, without waiting for a response, "You control Chicago's prostitution, gambling, drugs, weapons. You've got half the city under your thumb. The FBI can't catch you, and the Chicago PD aren't sure they want to. You've got influence all the way to the West Coast and Washington, D.C." He shrugged. "I can deal with the business. I've lived with monsters before. But the one thing everyone seems to agree on is you don't hurt kids. And that'd better be true, 'cause you hurt Debbie? I will destroy you."

I believed him.

{Sorry if this is terrible. I don't write often. And if someone wants to take this and do something more interesting with it, go right ahead.}

Guh. Guhhhh.

Terrible? This? Are you nuts? I've never even heard of The Pretender, but I'm going to go look it up right now on the strength of your fic alone. Well done, m'dear!

I'm flattered.

I did love the Pretender while it was on, although I found the ending unsatisfactory (it got cancelled, got tv-movied, etc.) I should warn you, though, Mr. Broots (no first name given, to the best of my knowledge, played by Jon Gries) and his daughter Debbie are minor characters, and I think they were introduced later. Broots' characterization here is based on what I remember of two of his best scenes.

This is not terrible. Broots is excellent as a meet.

John is a smart man to believe Broots.

Not that's been in question, Harry's aspersions aside.

(He's sort of in Pretender as much as Marcone is in Dresden Files, though he gets seen a little more, just not revealing much about himself.)

Yay! I love Pretender! I am going to go back and watch the episodes with Debbie again now just because you reminded me. This was really cute and I liked it a lot. Broots wasn't a minor character at all he was in almost every episode and a big part of the ensemble cast I liked him a lot. This is my new head cannon for what happens to him thanks for writing.
