Uninvited Assumption

An Assistant Editor once said to me, “Don’t bother dressing like a slut when the Director comes in. His wife has him on a tight leash so you won’t be able to sleep your way up.”

At the time I was a PA and felt unable to respond to his horrific comment. Instead I asked if my normal attire was inappropriate for the office. He said, “No, you dress very respectfully." 

I finished that job out, but I’ll never work for him ever again.


Stanley Kubrick - July 26, 1928 - March 7, 1999

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death — however mutable man may be able to make them — our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment.”

Rating: T
[Hero Time Prequel] Her name is Tex and she’s got a righteous fury to burn into her crappy neighborhood, whether the city wants her or not. Being a superhero, however, is never quite as simple as it seems, and only gets more complicated by her constantly in distress boyfriend and the beck and call of the premiere superhero team of the city whose leader seems intent on keeping her off the roster.

A/N: So I’ve known for a while we’d be getting to this chapter and it was going to be heeeaaaavvvvyyyy but I was so happy to write it anyway because I’m just so grateful for all of you guys and I just am so excited to finally get this chapter out to those of you who have supported me for so long throughout this fic. Thank you guys so so very much. And I hope you get as emotionally gut busted as I got writing the dang thing. … in the most loving, best way possible of course. 

Special thanks to @secretlystephaniebrown, @freshzombiewriter, @analiarvb, @washingtonstub@notatroll7, NidgetMinja, Yin,  @ephemeraltea@spooky-circuits, and @a-taller-tale on tumblr and AO3 for the feedback!

If This Be My Destiny

It made no sense that Tucker and Church weren’t already back at their apartment. 

The further Tex got into the city, the more she walked away from the direct focus of the Freelancer plot, the alien invasion, and the questions of surviving Freelancers, the more she was able to think upon the little things. The little things and the really big things that shined like neon signs in front of her.

Church and Tucker not being in their apartment, safe and sound, ready to annoy, made no sense in any scenario she could think of unless something went drastically wrong.

I don’t care if the Director’s proclaimed missing (most likely dead) I want to know what sort of information he got off of Spy, and I guess I wanted to draw greying haired men even though Spy has a mask on…
