Fan Fic / The Voice Of Never Never Land

Go To

The Voice of Never-Never Land is a The Thick of It Fan Fiction by Mousy677, following Ollie Reeder, Malcolm Tucker, Sam Cassidy and Ollie's younger sister Katy in an After the End-type situation (although other characters, such as Jamie and Nicola, do appear), four years after a nuclear bomb has been exploded beneath the Houses of Parliament.

This Fan Fiction provides examples of:

  • Affably Evil: Ollie. For all his threatening Malcolm, he still reasonably willingly helps him find Sam and Jamie.

  • After the End: The premise.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: "You don't care about people, Ollie. What's the real problem here." It's so armour-piercing that even Julius looks surprised.
  • Badass Longcoat: Ollie and Malcolm both have extremely ratty examples. Ollie's is an ex-military greatcoat, while Malcolm's is likely the same one as in the main series.
  • Bastard Understudy: As per the series the fic is based on, Jamie quickly returns to being this to Malcolm. Katy, and to a lesser extent Sam, are also this to Ollie.
  • Broken Bird: Everybody. Most notable is Ollie, but Malcolm, Jamie and Julius all obviously count.
  • Despair Event Horizon:
    • Ollie crosses it after his daughters die and he loses his eye.
    • Phil crosses it before the start of the fic, once Emma dies. See Driven to Suicide below.
  • Death by Childbirth: Emma.
  • Driven to Suicide: Phil, before the fic begins.

  • Eye Scream: Ollie had his left eye melted out in a fire-bomb blast, and his dog had her left eye scratched out in a dog fight. They're both remarkably cheerful about this, though.
  • Handicapped Badass: Ollie doesn't let loss of his left eye stop him from being pretty fucking amazing.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Sam is this to Ollie, while Jamie fills this role for Malcolm.
  • Infant Immortality: Averted with Ollie's daughters.
  • Iron Lady: Sam and Katy.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Ollie, unsurprisingly.
  • Lean and Mean:
    • Ollie has become a terrifying combination of muscle, skin, bones and evil.
    • Malcolm also qualifies, and Jamie to an extent.
  • No Name Given: Ollie's dog is just dog until Julius Nicholson calls her Fritz.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Ollie's dog.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Apparently living After the End has done amazing things for Ollie's strength, and not just physically.

  • Undying Loyalty: Ollie to Katy, and her back to him.
