Jan. 28th, 2014


Who: Shane A & Ella D
What: Stains and food.
When: Pre-Sam, pre-Chloe Kingpin.
Where: The diner
Warnings: Language for Shane?

Dry-lipped, hunched against the friendly glare of the sun, Shane entered the esteemed establishment with a bang of cheap metal and screen scrap )

Jan. 5th, 2014


Who: Ella Dean
What: Small changes. Small choices.
When: Recently.
Warnings: Nada

and she held that one slot warm in her heart, like an ember of something that should have been crushed right out )

Nov. 27th, 2013


Who: Dex, Dylan, Ella (+Beth), Jack, Max
What: The dinner table
Where: Max's townhouse
When: Thanksgiving
Warnings/Rating: IDK

Nothing was decorated, because Max didn't do decorations, not since Seattle. But the townhouse was clean, and she'd rented a table that was big enough to hold six chairs and whatever food Ella was making. This olive branch, which had been as spur of the moment as anything could be, was starting to feel like a bad idea. She had visions of flying turkey and smashing beer bottles, and she couldn't shake them. She knew it was ridiculous. She knew that awkwardness was much more likely than a food fight, but the kitchen counter was lined with beer and bottles of booze (just in case).

Oct. 15th, 2013


Who: Ella, Max and Luke
What: Terrible attempts at socializing with children. It goes predictably, horribly.
When: Recently.
Where: Max's new place

Max had been trained in all the kinds of things good spies were trained in, including reading people. Unfortunately, Max was terrible at reading herself, and she was no better at reading anyone else, even with the training )

Sep. 9th, 2013


Who: Cerise & Ella
What: The bb Beth trade off
Where: McDonalds
When: A couple days ago.
Warnings: None!

You brought her back. . . )

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. 29th, 2013


Who: Ella Dean & Lin Alesi
What: Water, water everywhere.
Where: Ella & Laura’s place
When: Before Beth was given to Cerise
Warnings/Rating: SADS.

The rigidity of her abruptly loosened, like a sack of sawdust slit open. She sagged, as though the adrenaline-taut strings of her had spindled down to nothing, to sharp high notes or nothing at all. Nothing more had happened. )

Aug. 13th, 2013


Who: Tristan and Ella (as May)
What: Meeting for sex (and talking)
Where: Tristan's new place - a warehouse with a living area that he's renting
When: Before Ella's daughter is kidnapped
Warnings/Rating: Angst. General setup for sex-for-cash, but nothing really "on screen".

She took a cab and the heat of the Vegas evening pressed up against her as she swung herself free from the stale processed air of the backseat and gazed up at the warehouse with something like skepticism in blue eyes )

Aug. 8th, 2013


Who: Luke and Ella (+ Gus and Beth)
What: Meeting in a park.
Where: A park.
When: Recently (when else?)
Warnings/Rating: Cute children.

Beth was still slung across one hip when the puppy, a noisy, skinny thing all feet and tail and ears bounded close enough to bark, to wriggle, to express puppy-joy at the idea of people to play with. )

Jul. 26th, 2013


Who: Ella & Cerise
What: Meetings and talkings and breakfast
Where: Ian's Summerlin house
When: Obv backdated to before Ella left.

But the woman bruised and branded like cigarette burns and hard handling looked like a butterfly stabbed through with a pin, like maybe she didn’t flutter anymore. )

Jul. 25th, 2013


Who: Neil and Ella
What: Tea and advice.
Where: Ella's place.
When: Backdated to while Sam was still in the hospital.
Warnings/Rating: None.

Ella didn’t know a lot about medicine. The General had a ‘if it doesn’t kill you, it toughens you up’ attitude her Momma had carried with her like an ill-fitting dress she was determined to fit on into. )

Jul. 24th, 2013


Who: Ella Dean
What: Narrative; getting a new job
When: Recently
Warnings: Suggestive of situations?

she could be May forever if it meant maybe one day, she could be Ella again )

Jul. 23rd, 2013

It looked too safe to be cheap. It looked too nice to be cheap )

Jun. 17th, 2013


Who: Dylan & Ella
What: A series of dreams.
Where: The wings of a theater, the bottom of a blood bank, and a beach.
When: WAY backdated to dreamplot time. I take full respnsibility for this taking forever.
Warnings: Weirdness, abstract everything, gore. Dylan has bloody dreams as a rule, obv.

It was cool as long-gone things by the side of the road, sticky like death in a bed, filmed-over eyes and stiffened limbs. )

May. 26th, 2013


Who: Ella Dean and Ian Russell
What: Job interview
When: Recently
Where: Ian's home
Warnings: None!

It was a good reaction, the one he looked for, and the lack of negotiation was good )

May. 25th, 2013


Who: Toby Fischer and Ella Dean
When: Recently
Where: Coffee place near the hospital
What: A 'date' that isn't and obliviousness.
Warnings: None!

It didn't matter if he had just fought with the other man, the love was still there, a fondness that would never be absent )

May. 21st, 2013


Who: Neil and Ella
What: Retrieving baby Beth.
Where: Aria.
When: Recently.
Warnings/Rating: Nooone.

She ignored the concierge desk as she plunged past, sweaty sundress clinging and the rubber squeak of her sneakers into the nearest bank of elevators before pounding the buttons. )

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. )

May. 17th, 2013


Who: Ella Dean & Lin Alesi
What: A fluffy mix-up
Where: Dreamland

Who: Ella Dean
What: The 13th fairy plot ended!
Where: Ella's apartment

It didn’t feel like a day, it didn’t feel like twenty-four hours )
