First, it was the hair. I’ve always had a thing for blondes.
Then it was the fact that she’d use any means necessary to manipulate someone (even me) to get her way. Sure, some might not appreciate that particular trait, especially when it meant a very long flight and dealing with some nasty childhood memories, but I wasn’t mad. Quite the opposite, in fact. I was impressed. Her imaginary file reminded me of myself. Her single-mindedness still does, and I still like it. Because it proves that when push comes to shove, she’ll get the job done. What can I say? I think the ends justify the means, especially with what we do.
Next came the whiskey, and even better, the cards.
The fact that she’s handy with a gun sealed the deal.
Yeah, there’s no denying that Olivia Dunham is my cup of tea.
Except I don’t drink tea. I’ve never had the patience for it. I take coffee on the run and get the hell out of Dodge.
Or rather, I did.
But her Invasion of the Body Snatchers answer just now? Complete with name-dropping and a Vulcan eyebrow?
Tea suddenly looks a whole lot more appealing.
