    "The first of them dies when Charlotte is just starting pre-school and she doesn't understand a moment of what's happening as her mother breaks down in the kitchen, sobbing as her hands curl the counter edge and go white knuckled."

    Summary

    "She traps him when she says such things, seizes him up like light caught in glass, like a fractured color in a prism and sharded and sharp but breathless at once. It's the way scientists can stop light from moving, a laser and a crystal and her when she says things that make her so viscerally vulnerable... she's the very basis for Quantum Memory and he's just... momentarily trapped, inert. Light travels at three hundred million meters per second – that is, til she opens her mouth and says things like just his full name, with that sweet accent and obvious adoration. And an admission that sounds the closest to 'I love you' than anything else he's heard from her yet." Post-Brian. Pre-series.

    Summary

    Summary

    "He can't hear that voice while putting his hand where he intends on putting it but he can't seem to find the 'mute' button either. He also can't tune Sloan out all that easily, unfortunately, and therein lies the problem. Especially when his wife smells like the warm and laundry soaped comfort of their own bedclothes, their bedroom, the combination of them (minus work or the world or anything that distracts them)." Post-series. Post Las Vegas/Mandalay Bay. Smut-ish interruptus.

    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?”
