I rather adore the Boss and Secretary. THey understand both the professional side (they are trained/chosen for this type of missions) but also the personal (M agents are assholes). Her brand of Tough Love is harsh but necessary.
Although this now gives me questions about 300 and 250, I mean like the Boss said, M Agents are to flirt, seduce and be eye-catching, so has 300 or 250 ever had to do far more than flirting, even have sex, with a mark for a mission? How did they deal with it? DId they talk about it, negotiate, plan or something? Isn't 250 also a Section M Agent, so he may be better informed on what a committed relationship with another M agent will be like and the type of missions both may go on, since it seems that Lis isn't so well informed or not an Agent. Or is 250 from another Section that somehow got tranfered into M and doesn't have this background? (damn it, I forgot. I have to go back and re-read from the moment he shows up to figure it out, unless someone else know?)
I thought that 300 and 250 have been in a relationship longer so maybe they already have something figured out or this can be Humon trying to figure out the dynamic between them in these situations. I may have thought/wonder about this more in depth before.
Why yes, I am from Fandom's where polygamy, BDSM, and open relationships are thought, discussed and fic'ed.
