Who: Max
What: Narrative & Life-changing event thing
Where: Dhaka → Langley → NY
When: This spans the past week+
Warnings/Rating: Talk of sex trafficking

She flew to Langley, where she spent the day receiving a much better reception than during her prior visit to CIA headquarters. )

Sep. 6th, 2013


Who: Ella and Max
What: Mortification and hard truths.
Where: Grocery store.
When: Recently
Warnings: Mentions of sex work

She wished - not for the first time in her life - that she and Ella had the kind of relationship that would allow for confidences, because even Max wanted that, and now Daniels was gone and she had no annoying blonde conscience, which she so desperately needed )

Aug. 25th, 2013


Who: Max
What: Narrative: Leaving Langley
Where: Langley → Henderson
When: Recently
Warnings/Rating: None

The new training facility in Henderson was close enough to Nellis AFB that you could smell the airplane fumes, and Max went there before going home, despite the aches and pains, despite the fact that she could barely walk, and despite the fact that she knew familial protocol demanded she go and hold Ella's hand. )

Who: Dylan, Jack and Max
What: A mission that goes right, but still manages to get it all wrong
Where: Mexico

Aug. 11th, 2013


Who: Max and Dylan
What: Dinner, Drinking, Kissing (2/3)
Where: Canaletto → Max's place
When: Just before hopping the Mexico flight
Warnings/Rating: Nope

Dylan hadn't really thought out whether he was going inside or not, his feet just seemed to carry him to her door without him having bothered to tell the taxi to wait for him. It drove off while she was still digging for her key, and he wasn't worried about the prospect of having to hail another one, this was Vegas after all. )


Who: Max and Dylan
What: Awk, Marigolds, discussing Lin (1/3)
Where: Canaletto (Thanks, wingman!)
When: Just before hopping the Mexico flight
Warnings/Rating: None

In his hand was a bouquet of fire colored marigolds. Not a traditional flower for dates, but the florist had assured him that they could survive through the neglect that came with somebody who knew nothing about flowers. Dylan was pretty sure that summed Max up in the gardening department. )

Jul. 23rd, 2013


Who: Max, Ella (and Beth), and Laura

May. 20th, 2013


Who: Max and Ella
What: A sisterly reunion
Where: The library
When: Recently
Warnings/Rating: Nope

A whole lot of nothing, in fact - and the second day, as the air chugged overhead and Beth dozed in the stroller, she tried it on again, elbow propped up beside the slow, five-years-out-of-date computer, with one leg drawn up beneath her and the kind of sundress bought at Goodwill, denim-washed blue, bright gold curls, long and shower-damp sprawling down her back. )

“Normal is very dull. No one with any much muchness is ever normal. Normalcy is like a tart made of something other than treacle. It is very not normal at all, even if it’s called normal by people who don’t know any better. Normally. Really. Not normal.” )

The rise through five floors was brief, and soon he was carrying her down the hallway like a bride on the wedding night, except for the fact that she was smeared with blood and desert sand. )
