Many, many thanks to the lovely editing angel @heavenli24 for her help with this one. It was written at a particularly harsh time in my life and I’m glad she was there to help me find my words, when I was sure I had lost them.

“I used to think I knew what tore our family apart. Now I’m sure I don’t. But I promise this: I will find out what really happened, and I will bring this family back together again. I’m sorry, is that mushy? Well, you know what they say. Veronica Mars, she’s a marshmallow.”
Apparently no one in the Navy was actually called “Maverick” or “Iceman” — real call signs were embarrassing, ridiculous, or patently disgusting. “Stewbeef,” “Big Bird,” “Purge.” Logan’s was simply “Mouth” for reasons Veronica took to be obvious.
