[There's a faint sound of papers shuffling, items being placed into boxes, and general office shuffle going on in the background as a distinctly British accented voice starts speaking.]

Spring cleaning takes on a different meaning when the future's flexible, doesn't it? The save or toss it debate's complicated when you don't know whether you'll be here tomorrow. Then there's the filing system for what's kept. That leaves a story behind, too. A little personal Pompeii, preserved for whoever comes poking around once you've gone.

[She exhales softly, a chair creaking now as she falls back into it.]

Makes me wonder what kind of impression I'd leave behind if I popped out of this reality today. It's almost enough reason to tidy my flat up a bit more often.

This part switches to VIDEO. She's seated at Max's desk in his office.]

Considering the erratic nature of this new work environment, I gave it a little time. But this is official notification that Mr. Maxwell Lord is missing due to porter-related removal. If we haven't met, I'm Ms. Moneypenny.

That answers one question I've pondered recently. Either way, I imagine you're familiar with us already, Ms. Moneypenny, but proper introductions shouldn't be neglected because of that. Dr. Henry McCoy, reporting in.

Now, how much should we read in to the fact that you seem quite at home behind his desk?
professorlionface: (I'll explain this slowly.)

But it being a transition is inevitable, I think most of us can agree to that. I think it's simply a matter of what we'll be transitioning to. I take it you've already begun reviewing Max's affairs?
professorlionface: (Might I just add...)

Difficult to say, I think you know what was on his docket better than most of us do, at this point. But I was thinking, if it doesn't look like something that can be settled quickly, maybe it would be better if the position weren't dissolved.
professorlionface: (Well...that's something.)

Seems fair enough, given that half of ours couldn't manage their way around the paperwork. I'm not opposed to you staying on.

Should you do so, it might be best that you begin by telling us about yourself.
professorlionface: (I find myself brimming with thoughts.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-22 11:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, I don't know that we do know the company you keep, actually. You think this conversation may be compromised?
professorlionface: (Can't be overly concerned at the moment!)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-24 04:47 am (UTC)(link)
Possibility is one thing, I was asking about likelihood.
professorlionface: (What was I thinking?)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-25 11:33 pm (UTC)(link)
So, there's a specific threat you have in mind? I imagine that's something it would be worth briefing us on.

...In person, of course.
professorlionface: (Let me ask you...)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-28 10:10 pm (UTC)(link)
I'll look forward to it, then. When would be the best time for you?
professorlionface: (Let's consider this.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-03-02 03:51 am (UTC)(link)
Better it's taken care of sooner than later, then. I can meet you this afternoon.
