Me, a spy?

From [ profile] theatrical_muse: Would you make a good spy?

I don't think so. Thing is, I'm a bit too honest. You might think that's an odd thing for a thief to say, but I've always been hopeless at telling lies, mainly because everything I think and feel shows on my face, so I gave up as a bad job early on. I could do you a few security breaches and safe-crackings though, usual rates.

I know a bloke once who said he'd applied for the Secret Intelligence Service (and no, it's not for those who keep their intelligence well hidden, thank you Avon) also known as Grassers Anonymous. They told him he'd spend most of his time checking and filing data and would have to call himself a government clerk (no impressing people at school reunions or wearing long black coats and a mysterious expression, then). Besides, he said, they only offered retirement or death, deciding you'd like a change of career not being an option. So he said no. Last I heard, he was flying a pursuit ship for Space Fleet which was giving him the adrenaline fix he liked.

Me, I prefer my adrenaline with some soma in a glass, thanks. So I think your answer's no.

Vila, I've just discovered your journal. How lovely to hear your perspective on things.

Hello there! And that's very refreshing to hear!

I suppose you've already met my friend [ profile] deltarrant. :-)

Oh, yes, Vila. Many of us consider you a hero, after the Andromodean War. There were all kinds of rumours about Gauda Prime, none of us knew what happened. So glad that you are still alive, and (hopefully) well.

I haven't met your friend Del Tarrant, but I see you enjoy chatting with him. You sounded so much friendlier than him in your journal ...

Well, I don't think he's ever had much time for me.

Well, he's a alpha, isn't he? They're renouned for being stuck up.

Oh and I am! Alive and well, I mean!
