    Summary

    "What the fuck kind of help did you want, Elizabeth? What did you think you were askin' for? For me to take care of it? What the fuck do you think that means?"

    "I don't- I don't know-" She's sputtering, taking a step back at the sudden explosion.

    "Yeah. Yeah, you do," he sneers. She likes to pretend she don't know shit, but he's seen the way her mind works, she knows exactly what's up even when she don't want to admit it to herself. "It means somebody gets dead. You just don't want it to happen where you can see it."

    He steps in, right back up against her. Close enough that he can feel the heat radiating off of her, a sharp contrast to the chill of the rain falling around them. "You talked a lot of shit about me puttin' it all on you like you weren't out there tryin' to put your dirty work on me so you could keep your lily-white hands clean."

    She snaps. Rio sees it in her face, and a part of him uncoils. There she is.

    Summary

    The thing about Elizabeth is that she surprised him and it'd been a long time since anyone managed to pull that off. It wasn't the housewife thing, he'd crossed paths with plenty of suburban bitches and knew their flavors of desperate inside and out. In his line of work, he's seen people at every version of their worst.

    Elizabeth, though, she was somethin' else. She'd sat there that afternoon way back when with her shoulders straight, hands folded, all prim and proper, and a gun to her forehead for the first time in her life, callin' Rio out on his shit. The way her voice had been shaking, he'd looked up expecting tears, preemptively exhausted at the thought of them. But underneath that flush, she'd been mad as hell, and it stopped him up short because her mad had an edge he'd recognized.

    He hadn't been expecting that.

    Summary

    It seems like a lifetime ago that he’d regarded her with intrigue rather than vigilance. Now, they’re wounded, inside and out, and he’s certain that no amount of stitches could ever make them whole again. There’s no going back to the way things were; nothing left between them that either are capable of salvaging.

    When Rio returns to give Beth what she's owed, he finds something unexpected on her fridge among her children's artwork.

    Summary

    As an individual who's made enough poor decisions to hold himself over for the next couple of lifetimes, he's concluded that it gets easier to make an irrational decision after the first time you make one.
    After the first affair of sentiment overcoming reason, there's less resistance from one's mind where the heart is involved.
    He figures that he'd started slipping long before he'd had the chance to catch himself, his unchecked feelings steering him down a path of reckless habits while reason took the backseat.
    The worst part is that he doesn't give a shit how far down he's slipped.
    He knows what the view is like from the top, and look where it's gotten him.
    A change in perspective is beneficial for most, anyway.

    Summary

    It's not like she's incapable of accepting help, as those who are close to her seem to think.
    It's just that she can't remember a time in the past twenty years where asking for help didn't come back to bite her in the ass.
    It's perfectly reasonable for her side-step the risk of having another favor dangled over her by a string, guiding her back behind the fence, lest she forget her own dependence on the person holding the stick.
    Sometimes she feels stretched so thin, doing everything on her own, she thinks she could fall on a shard of glass and it would shred her to pieces.
    It's okay, though.
    She just makes sure she doesn't trip.

    Summary

    “Wh-what are you doing here?”

    Her speech is slurred, just slightly, but it’s enough to grab his attention. She’s drunk- the rosiness of her cheeks and the droopiness of her eyes proving that to him.

    He sighs and grabs her glass of bourbon off of the counter, wincing at the movement, but finishing it in one swig. Maybe this was a bad idea.

    She takes a few cautious steps towards him as he responds with a lazy gesture to the blood covering his upper arm, “I got a bit of a situation.”

    Summary

    Growing up, honesty was most certainly not the best policy.
    Honesty drew pitiful stares, preying men, and phone calls home that would inevitably land in her mother's unattended answering machine.
    It exposed her weaknesses; drew the attention of those who would mistake her candor for desperation.
    She hated the treatment that would follow such an assumption almost as much as she hated being desperate.
    She's learned a lot from twenty years of wedlock and half a year of divorce, though.
    She's learned that the place and time where honesty is disclosed is just as pertinent as the person it's disclosed with.

    Summary

    He'll be the first to admit that he's been wrong before and will likely be wrong again.
    He's sharpened his judgement into quite the trusty blade, and it's on kilter for most occasions.
    Regardless, there are times when he misses the mark; where he hasn't considered every angle, seen through every façade, or gotten the leg up on his target.
    Those occasions have a steady track record of ending in carnage.
    When they're over and done with, he always seeks out the most efficient route to develop from it and overcome it.
    Forgiveness is a pain-staking, highly-trafficked route; one that he's found himself becoming less and less resistant to taking.

    Summary

    From Johnny to Rio, from SoCal to Detroit, from FBI to crime king, from Lucia Solano to Beth Boland, this is the story of Christopher. It doesn't make any sense. Except it does. And, okay, let's be honest, Manny Montana is the only reason this fic exists.

    OR

    Closing an imaginary nine years gap between Graceland S3E13 and Good Girls S01E01, based on the idea that Johnny Tuturro and Rio are the same person named Christopher.

    Summary

    "He's gone. We're free."

    Beth had genuinely meant it when she had talked to the girls. With Rio out of the picture, for good, she had thought things would get easier.

    She had tried not to think about the image of him lying on the floor, choking on blood as he was desperately seeking for air. She had convinced herself that it was the best solution for everyone. Well except for him obviously, but she chose to focus on her feelings and her well-being and not his.

    Summary

    There's something to be said about honesty.
    It saves time, builds trust, fosters wisdom; all that other soft bullshit.
    And for the most part, he agrees. There's nothing better than being admired for breaking a guy's arm because he was honestly wasting his damn time.
    Though, there's also something to be said about forgiveness.
    In order to deal it, you have to be honest about what's been so unforgivable thus far; be honest about whether it's worth holding onto the pain of what's over and done with.
    He assumes that it's the inward show of honesty that always makes him so reluctant to forgive.
    He knows better than to talk the talk without walking the walk, so if he's going to keep preaching about handling unsavory things, he'll hold himself accountable all the same.
