Summary: Doyle wakes up in a warehouse to find himself injured, suffering from amnesia, and apparently involved in a bombing plot with a man named Foster. He soon meets Williams--a tall, dark, beautiful (and engagingly modest) mercenary arms dealer. Doyle tries to find out who he is, what's going on, and why he instinctively trusts Williams, even though he clearly shouldn’t.

Notes: Thank you to elizabethoshea, O Anonymous One, and dorinda for hand-holding, encouragement, beta-work, formatting...everything, really! Thank you to my wonderful, inspiring, incredibly patient artist Maerrie/hermine. (You all are in for a treat!) Thank you to our fabulous (and also incredibly patient) mods callistosh65 and przed. And, finally, a special thank you to my entire F'list (and Circle) for encouragement duty above and beyond. *g*

This has no real relation to the story, but I was repeatedly listening to Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" during crucial pondering time with this story. So for me, at least, the story is infused with that song. (In Bodie's perspective. *g*)

FINALLY here... Yep, your story has been on my Kindle for a while now and over the weekend I actually got to read it.

I'll start by admitting that amnesia is one of my favourite fan fiction tropes. I really liked the way you handled it, Doyle trusting "Williams" instinctively without really knowing why and how that trust leads to Doyle finally understanding how Bodie feels about him.

Thanks for the lovely read. :D

Whoa! This was unexpected! *g* Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Amnesia is one of my favorite fan fiction tropes, too. And, see, I can read, and thoroughly enjoy, unrealistic amnesia stories. Absolutely. But I found when I was writing this that, at least in the Pros universe, I couldn't write unrealistic amnesia. Arrgh. So, somewhere within me is the real, unrealistic, guilty pleasure version of this story that involves Doyle leaving the city and starting a new life, and then this dark-haired, blue-eyed stranger comes along.... Ah, well.

Thank you so much for following up with commenting after all this time. Not only am I chuffed, of course, but it also works as good motivation for this year's BB!

Obviously it might take me a while to get there, but I always leave a comment on anything I've read and enjoyed.

I do know what you mean about realism. I wrote a lot of crack fic for Life on Mars, but that world isn't "real," Pros is... which is part of the reason why I dislike AU so much in Pros.
