((OOC: This was clearly a life or death must know situation so to actually answer the question…

…technically, since we did the Pride and Prejudice thread in May last year, but really we didn’t start hanging out properly till around September? So it’s been a solid minute.

To Protect (pt 1)

Another CCPD/ Metahuman task force cares about and wants to protect Cisco fic, based on This concept 

Cisco double checked the framing on yet another shield, before nodding in approval and setting it aside. He’d been up almost all night, tinkering away at his little desk at CCPD, but it was worth it.
