    Summary

    Runway is the battlefield, not the prize. Miranda Priestly, seductive manipulator and strategist versus Andrea Sachs, Nigel’s replacement and Anna Wintour’s ex-protégé. What, exactly, are they fighting for?
    AU in that the story takes place three years after the movie which, incidentally, did not have Andrea in it but another second assistant who tossed the phone in Paris. Miranda is slightly younger (48), the twins are slightly younger, too (9) and she’s been divorced from Stephen for two years. Miranda got Nigel the EIC gig at Runway France. Before he leaves, he has one month to find and train his replacement...Andrea Sachs, recently from Vogue. Andrea is older (35), married to Nate who is a stay-at-home dad to their four year old daughter. I also took the liberty of ‘cherry picking’ scenes/dialogue from the movie for this fanfic disregarding chronology. 
    Usual disclaimer about nothing is mine, not making money, etc. applies.

    Summary

    Alex looks up. It’s late at night and her door is open, but Maggie’s gently rapping her knuckles against the doorframe. “You got a minute?”

    Alex nods, trying not to visibly swallow. She’s sitting behind Jonn’s desk, and she feels uncomfortably small. She hates feeling small.

    She moved into this office before Brazil, but that whole time had felt like a fever dream—the surprise of Jonn’s retirement, the shock of her promotion, the breakneck pace to get things settled before jetting off to the tournament. Now it’s real, the season spooling out in front of her, unbroken by any distractions. Just Alex, her team, and the start of her coaching legacy.

    No big deal.

    Not like she totally blew it the last time her legacy was put to the test or anything.

All it takes is a glance of a photograph, and a dash of luck to go with your fate. The hard part is surviving with someone inside your head until Christmas Day.
