Rogues by Desert_Rose14


Leslie Turner, the enigmatic director of the Stitchers program, and developer of the Stitchers technology, discovers a serious threat to the program—a program he has already shown he will kill to protect. What begins as a dismissal from the agency, and the abrupt termination of his program, turns into a federal investigation. A theory from a close and trusted colleague takes him halfway across the country in search of the person responsible for sabotaging his career and the theft of the Stitchers technology.

Although Les will stop at nothing to regain possession of the technology that was stolen from him, he is not prepared for the personal and emotional costs, as the past comes back to haunt him in a way he never expected.

Story Notes:


All characters that appear on Stitchers are the property of their respective creators. All new characters in this story are the property of the author.

Also, this story was originally "set" partway through the first season of Stitchers. However, after watching the entire first season, I've rearranged the plot so that it still fits with everything that happened in the first season, though I've taken some storylines and given my creative twist to them. Any similarities that occur in subsequent seasons are unrelated and entirely coincidental.


“Just give me something—something I can use. People love it when you lose, they love dirty laundry. Well I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here. I just have to look good, I don’t have to be clear. Come and whisper in my ear. Give us dirty laundry. Kick ‘em when they’re up, kick ‘em when they’re down…kick ‘em all around…It’s interesting when people die, give us dirty laundry. Can we film the operation?…We need dirty laundry. You don’t really need to find out what’s going on, you don’t really want to know just how far it’s gone. Just leave well enough alone, eat your dirty laundry…Kick ‘em when they’re up, kick ‘em when they’re down. Kick ‘em when they’re stiff, kick ‘em all around. Dirty little secrets, dirty little lies. We got our dirty little fingers in everybody’s pie. We love to cut you down to size. We love dirty laundry…When it’s said and done, we haven’t told you a thing. Give us dirty laundry!”—Don Henley, “Dirty Laundry”

Iain tells Les, "It's a nasty business doing other people's dirty work...but on's a real pleasure." Jason Isaac's character in the film The Patriot echoes the same words to Mel Gibson's character. It was then that I decided, in my mind, Jason Isaacs would "play" Iain Hamilton.

I'm uncertain of how the legal system works in regards to bail and the events that precede a trial; however, I have tried to make those events as believable as possible with the research I've conducted into the matter.

Les's age was never revealed on the show, so judging from the little information given about him, I took a guess at how old he might be.

I understand that some readers prefer not to read intimate scenes in stories. I've added Chapter Eleven, in addition to this chapter, so those readers can skip this chapter, since Chapter Eleven continues the story seamlessly, even without reading this chapter.

I'm unsure if Biomedical Science and Neuroscience were programs offered at Oxford University thirty years ago, however, I've used both to fit with the story and Les's past.

Since I wanted to change Les's appearance as much as possible, yet in a believable way, I thought back to how Oded looked in the movie Dreamer; and so, I based Les's new "look" on Prince Sadir from Dreamer.
