Her'e s a link to my latest Jacob/Rachel story. Thei one is set after Medea - it's the story of Rachel coming back to Hood's protective detail. The title is from a line of Rachel's in Medea. Jacob has just told Rachel that if she wants a transfer he won't try to stop her. She looks at him and says "Welcome back Rachel" and goes on and gives the "jealous as hell" speech. I always hated that line - I just thought it didn't make sense in context. So I decided to put it in a better context and use it for the title of Rachel's returen.
It was important to me that Rachel be out for months, not weeks. I had my shoulder operated on last summer and believe me, it takes a long time to come back from something like that. Plus I figured, with her type of job and all, the FBI wouldn't let her back on a protective detail until she was completely 100% recovered. And that would take some time.
I also wanted to use the idea tht Jacob would put up with a lot from his temporary handler. One becasue he wouldn't want to worry Rachel and also becasue, as I've said before, I'm sure he knew that it would give rise to gossip if his parade of handlers started all over again. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8233298/1/W ... ack_Rachel
