[Reviews - 13] starstarstarstarstarPrinter

Lucinda Barry stared out the airplane window at the gray sky, thinking about the men who changed her life forever.

Her partner, her friend, and a motorcycle.

If she had the chance, would she do it over again? Would she make the same choice?

Yes. I would.

Story Notes:
I know, I know. I have a zillion half-baked projects on the back burner and here I am, working on yet another project that I shouldn't be starting...again. (How often do I do this to myself, anyway?) But once Lucinda hijacked my brain, she didn't want to let go. Not until I'd finished this, anyway. This is what happens when I decide to rewatch the pilot episode. That accursed image of the shooting range scene got stuck in my head like a bad '90s Pop song on repeat. So here we go... This is set after the pilot, but before The Spellingg Bee. This is a glimpse of the events that occurred between those two episodes, and a kind of explanation of why Lucinda was transferred and just what happened to her in general...with a slight twist.

I reference a specific firearm in this story, and that reference was the product of a few quick Google searches, so I apologize for any inaccuracy. Also, I don't know any real policewomen, so if any of Lucinda's rants seem odd or inaccurate, I completely apologize. A lot of the things Lucinda says are compiled based on pure speculation and my own limited personal experiences. As always, please feel free to correct me on anything and please let me know if you have any constructive criticism.

One thousand thanks to my good friend, BlkLunaDragon, for looking over this for me. Any errors that remain are all my own fault.

And sorry about the sucky summary. I couldn't think of anything.

***UPDATE: I have to say that I am truly touched. It means so much to me that people out there read, nominated, and voted for this story. Lucinda and her story mean a lot to me, and I truly put my heart and soul into writing this. For days on end, I would stay up well past midnight, working on it for hours. Then I'd throw it at Luna and revise it obsessively until it was worthy of being posted. Thank you for supporting me. You have my sincerest thanks, and I am honored.


1. Looks Like The Sun by PineappleHead [Reviews - 13] starstarstarstarstar (7018 words)
I was originally going to post this as one long section rather than breaking it up into chapters, but it ended up being quite a bit longer than I expected, so I'm going to divide it up a little. Chapter titles are related to the story title. Um... I think that's everything. Please let me know how you feel about this one. I honestly put a lot more work into this one than most of my other stories. Lucinda is important to me, because she's one of my favorites and I want to do her justice. So let me know how I did. Thanks again!

2. Feels Like The Rain by PineappleHead [Reviews - 0] (9351 words)
This section pretty much picks up where the last section left off and continues until the end of the main story. When I have time, I'm going to post some "bonus" chapters that will serve as an epilogue and a tag to The Spellingg Bee.
Thanks again to BlkLunaDragon for all her help and feedback. Without her input, this story would not be possible.
....Praise the Squirrel! ;-)
