    Summary

    [ God made me a hungry woman,
    to travel deep waters with a neck
    that cranes toward surrender
    God is counting on my hunger now ]
    ---
    “what happens in gilead, stays in gilead” is easier said than done.

    (a follow-up to my previous fic, "surround me with shouts of deliverance" because i wasn't quite ready to let that story go. you probably have to read that first to understand any of this.)

    Summary

    “Wait, where’s Area 51?” Quinn asks suddenly.

    “Um, I don’t know, Quinn. Are you concerned Madison and Nikolai are going to get abducted by aliens?”

    “Ugh, I wish they would.”

    “Very X-Files,” Rachel says wryly, and lets her feet slump across the dash as she flicks her sunglasses down over her eyes.

    To Quinn’s credit, though, chasing after aliens does sound a hell of a lot more fun than following a runaway suitor and the stupidest producer who ever lived halfway across America.

    Summary

    Rindy Aird, growing up.

    Every morning, Rindy finds herself peering critically at her reflection in the mirror, as if searching for something. The soft curve of her mother’s lips, perhaps. The sharp of her cheekbones. Under the morning light her mother’s golden curls might glow a soft orange, but Rindy’s hair has always remained an unimpressive shade of dirty blonde. ‘You look like her around the eyes,’ is what Aunt Therese tells her. Some days Rindy believes her; other days she thinks it is nothing more than a trick of the light.

    But a woman who gave up her life of dazzling normalcy and chose, instead, to be unutterably herself -- such a woman would have more to show than just, say, full lips and sharp cheekbones. And it is her silent courage and quiet self-possession that Rindy wants, above all else, to emulate.

    Summary

    When it comes to the presidency, Claire doesn't want to repeat any of her husband's mistakes. When it comes to forming attachments, she doesn't want to repeat any of her own.

    But a West Wing crowded with strangers and a Residence crowded with silence isn't easy on anyone's sanity, and Claire never asked to be left alone at the top.
