Diana continues to interfere after One Son. Our agents couldn't be any more distant when they're sent out of the country on a case.
Author's Notes: For almost 20 years I have lived in a country with a 5,000 year old culture, spending months in villages that count years since the last white person was seen. I was once an academic and thus am still more skeptic that believer. But I have also seen things... On my last trip to Ambrym volcano, I was stuck in a leaky hut with dead bodies from black magic littering the area. . My helicopter pilot companion thought I was screwy reading Xfiles when we lived the damned things. So a bottle of tequila and an annoyance about the M&S relationship post One Son in hand, I sat down with many battery changes, incorporated real life to fiction and ended up with this.
This is one of my favourite fics. I can't get enough Fowley-induced-angst, and she's at her evil worst in this one. It does reference Human Affairs, a previous story by Spider, but it's not necessary to read that story before this one. You might notice that I've tagged both stories as UST to RST, but there's a reason for that so just go with it. 🙂
18+ months later - I just found some original artwork for Spider's stories. I assume that this was created by Spider (Sonny) as it didn't state otherwise.
