    “Remember the disaster?”

    “The disaster.” She pops another cube into her mouth. “The time you asked Maggie—”

    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

    “I think Jim thinks I used to cry,” there’s amusement in her voice edged with a note of triumph that he recognizes as distinctly dangerous. “I got good at being quiet.”

    “Oh,” he breathes out when her voice drops off silky smooth, with a smirk he knows is there because even if he hasn’t heard it in years, he’s heard that tone of voice before in the inky black of his bedroom, in the back of a cab on the way to her place after dinner, in the stairwell behind the studio at CNN.

    Summary

    The storm had woke her, the rolling thunder an uncomfortable reminder of the constant drumming of artillery fire. The ping of the rain on the windows, when it came, was an equally sharp and unsettling sound.

    Summary

    I feel that (almost) every episode could have ended with or led up to a happy end - Here are my versions. Some shorter, some longer, some simple, some more complex - Please also read the notes at the start of chapter 1. All characters belong to brilliant Aaron Sorkin. One shots, each chapter is a separate story and stands on its own.

    The M-rating only applies to chapter 5.

    Summary

    It was odd to be coming home this early with the sun still flooding in behind him as he crosses the lobby, arms full of takeout bags. It was an odd artifact of the news cycle— the flurry of emails, phone calls, and texts that had started arriving in the middle of the night three days ago— and the impending weekend. It was quiet now, rush hour not quite begun, and it feels, oddly, as if the storm was still approaching, as if it hadn't just blown through them. Three days with almost no sleep, he should be exhausted, but he's not, and that's what worries him. The storm may be over but he hadn't spared a thought for the damage it may have caused.
