    Summary

    "I would appreciate it if you would show me the same respect you afford everyone else.”

    “I am.” He assures her, but the glare remains. “Will McAvoy.” He holds out his hand. “I apologize if I’ve offended you ma’am. I only meant to have a bit of fun.”

    She still looks perturbed, but the good old boy routine seems to have smoothed things over sufficiently as she reaches to clasp his hand. Her grip is firm, not the watery half-attempt he’s encountered from the few women bold enough to return the gesture. “MacKenzie McHale. Do you really go by Will? Charlie did mention your name of course, but meeting you now it doesn’t seem quite right. I hope you don’t mind Billy. It’s much more suitable don’t you think?”

    Summary

    There’s a lack of clarity that tethers them together, unasked questions that remain unanswered, and the terror of what ghost may be haunting them, unknown. Nearly seven months after she was captured by the Taliban, Will and Jim try to survive in the liminal space that MacKenzie has left behind. Whether she’s a mercurial goddess, a saint, or a just a woman they loved, they still can’t figure her out.

    Summary

    "It occurred to me that I've never been anyone's husband," Will confessed, shrugging tension from his shoulders, and was thrown a little by the lopsided smile Mac aimed at him.

    "You haven't?" Laughing again, Mac ducked her head, teasing him wasn't a very good show of seriousness-solidarity. "Go on, you've never been anyone's husband..." She prompted, and he nodded back into his train of thought.

    Summary

    “Too bad about those couriers, eh?” Neal began, fiddling absently with his e-cigarette.
    Indifferently, Will lit a real cigarette and took a deep pull. “They got a lucky break. Yesterday, they were just two stringers scrabbling for a story. Today, they’re the honored dead.”

    Summary

    "Someone once said to me that being a war correspondent is an act of violence against the people you love the most because they end up having to stay behind worrying about you." Will's point of view while Mac is embedded. Borrowed Jordan from 'Studio 60' for later chapters, just because I think she and Mac would have made a great team.
