I'm glad this was as fun to read as it was for me to write. I mostly wrote this piece as a standalone, but I'm planning to dive a bit more into Agent Ketevan's life as a DIA agent, so she might come across RC 1000 herself... who knows? :>

And yeah, I admittedly wasn't going to go in this direction with the ending, but I haven't really explored May's psyche in my stories before - Lissa is sort of my avatar, I think. I generally envisioned May as a more keeping-to-herself kind of person, so even if she's good friends with Melissa by now, I feel like it might make sense for her to not to reveal such an upsetting personal story. Especially with Sumie around.

Also, that's not a typo. :) I meant for May to say that she's remembering wrong, not that she was, hence the present tense. I figured I can use some sloppier wording if it's dialogue, but I might have to change that if it doesn't work.

And no, I haven't seen the Halloween Co-Write before, bur thanks for showing me! It really does sound like my kind of thing. :) Perhaps we the Ghost Squad could do something similar in a non-PPC setting?

Thanks for reading!
