Shannon and Mac Get Interviewed!
Q. Each person gets the chance to reply to an answer. If you refuse a question, we reserve the right to let the other person ask you anything he/she wants.
Q. Mac – What do you know about Shannon that no one else does?
Mac – Well, occasionally others might become aware of this because she’s pretty vocal about it.
Shan – You better be careful what you say next.
Mac – Shannon is afraid of bugs. The ones that can fly around.
Shan – He’s right. I don’t like things that fly at you and bite.
Q. What scares you about Mac?
Shan – Sometimes he does things without considering the consequences. He’ll jump in a fight and take a beating, just so he can say he did it.
Mac – To be fair, when I do those things, you’re right there with me.
Shan – Someone has to cover your back.
Mac – I can take care of myself.
Shan – That’s not how I remember things.
Q. – Next question. Mac, what are your goals in life?
Mac – I’d like things in The Vista to be more secure. We’ve learned a few things recently that make me question how safe we are. Beyond that, I’d like to find a place to live where I don’t have to worry about things from the past. I might settle down some day. I might head out and see what’s in the world.
Q. Shan – Who is your best friend?
Shan – Wade.
Q. Would you care to elaborate?
Shan – Not particularly. That’s just the way it is. People can speculate on it any way they want.
Q. Mac – What do you think other people think of you?
Mac – That I’m the easy one in Team Three to get along with. In most cases, that’s true enough. Rumors make for a lot of speculation, and civilians might have the impression I don’t take my job as serious as I should. Other Security officers know better.
Q. Shannon – If you could live in another time, where and when would it be?
Shan – That’s not possible.
Q. It’s a hypothetical question. If.
Shan – The 1960’s seemed interesting. There were a lot of changes happening. A lot of history being made.
Q. Both of you – Team Three is together, Team Three isn’t together, it’s been hit and miss for a year now. What do you foresee in the immediate future?
Shan – We have unfinished business, in The Vista, in Estes Park. It’s time we confront those problems and deal with them. No one’s going to do it for us, and we certainly don’t want anyone to try.
Mac – Let’s not forget about Cody. We have that now, and we need to keep it. It’s easy to forget how vulnerable a place can be, especially a new place. I agree, that we need to go home, too. That’s the important thing to remember. We’ll do what we have to, protecting The Vista. I think we’ve already proven that.
Q. Any last words of advice?
Shan – Don’t trust anyone that didn’t come out of The Vista with you.
Mac – Out in the badlands, not everyone is who you think they are. In fact, no one is.
