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*)

Great story! I love how you used the amnesia to focus in on the very elemental, timeless quality of their connection. Bodie as "Williams" was a wonderful rock to the poor bashed-up Ray, being both himself and his undercover character at once, which must have been a terrible strain. So well done, and so lovely to have the "homecoming" at the end showing the depth of the relationship that Ray kept glimpsing through the fog. Thanks very much, I spent a very happy time in my favourite cafe with this one this morning :D

Ah, I know that experience of reading a new story that you're enjoying, and all is right with the world! *g* I'm very glad I was able to supply that for you. I wanted the amnesia to be more than just a plot point, you know? So I'm pleased to hear you describe how it helped to illuminate their relationship--for the reader as well as for them. Yay.

Thank you very much for commenting! I'm still way behind in the catching-up, but I should be getting some free time in the next two months. Um. Just when the Christmas stories start rolling in, actually... *g*
