  1. Summary

    “The mirrors in your mind can reflect the best of yourself, not the worst of someone else.”

    Will Graham's problem isn't that he sees the violence in people and takes it as his own. It's that the violence in people makes him realize his own vast potential for the same. It's not exactly people that scare him as much as the idea that he may enjoy "justice" more than he admits. What if the best of himself is not so far off from someone else's worst?

    Summary

    When she steps off the plane in Logan International, something tight in her shoulders cracks, loosens, and she shakes free the last barb the PPDC had through her spine, through her brain, keeping her tense and wary for most of a decade. She yanks her heavy suitcase off of the carousel, identifiable by the years of layered duct tape repairing a seam that could once have been stitched, and flags the first taxi that will stop for her.
