(WRITING SAMPLES)

Writing Sample 1 – First Person:

On the Job circa 2001:
We’d been at it for eight hours, in a dark windowless room in the center of a detention camp in Afghanistan, doing our best to get information from a source. General Abdullah and I developed a rapport, typical good cop/bad cop, not that it helped us get anything I needed at all. He gave the orders and I stood in the shadows. I tried to be intimidating.

We’d finally resorted to trying to drown the subject. It was our last, best hope and proved to be no better than any of the other techniques we’d tried. It was possible the subject had no information, possible but not probable. Something about him, told me that he was lying.

“That’s enough,” I said after the first half hour went by with no result. I’d wasted enough time, and decided to try my questions one last time. If I still walked away empty handed I’d find someone else.

“Where’s Kabir? We know he’s planning something. He’s already killed thousands of innocent people.” I tried to keep my voice from wavering. It was difficult as I was exhausted. The look of defiance was unmistakable.

The next thing I said made me feel like I was in a poorly written spy movie. “You don’t tell us what you know, I assure you, you’ll join them.”

The subject still didn’t answer me. I was done. “He’s useless. Finish him.” I did my best to sound like I didn’t care, to distance myself from the order I’d just given. One of Abdullah gave the order and one of his men cocked his gun as I turned my back on the scene. I expected to hear one single gunshot. Instead I heard, “Wait!” tinged with desperation. All of the subject’s defiance was gone. We’d finally gotten him to crack. I couldn’t explain the relief I felt that my order didn’t have to be acted upon.

The rest of the exchange was short and sweet:
“Kabir has gone to Russia.”
“Why?”
“He was going to meet a Russian, someone who fights for them. He planned an action against the US Military.”
Where in Russia did he go?”
“Marmansk, on the sea.”

It looked like I was going to be racking up a few more frequent flyer miles before going back to Langley.

Writing Sample 3 – Third Person:


Clay stood on the back deck of his beach house on Virgina’s Eastern Shore watching the waves and Harm and Mac’s discussion on his beach. He didn’t know what they were talking about, and he didn’t particularly care. She always went to Harm when she had a problem. Webb realized she should have been coming to him and never had. All she did was fight with him. No matter how much he loved her, she didn’t want to be with him, she wanted to be with Harm. It was over with no going back.

All that was left was his job at the Agency, and Kershaw just offered him the opportunity to come in from the cold, to be welcomed back into Langley, back behind his desk. The question remained, was he ready for the end of his career to amount to nothing more than movement within the Agency Hierarchy?

Usually in situations like this, he needed a sounding board. Sometimes it was another Agency employee, but thankfully, his mother was sitting in the kitchen. Clay waited until Kershaw walked out of the front door before he entered the living room through the French doors that led out onto the deck. Agency personnel were going to be on their way to dispose of Tanveer’s body and clean his carpet. Clay ran his hand over the bullet hole left in his sofa, he was going to have to replace that on his own.

Porter knew he was in the kitchen almost immediately after he crossed the doorway from the living room, “I poured you another cup of tea, Clayton.”

“Thank you, Mother.” And like she had for as long as he could remember, Porter sat across from her son and waited for him to start the conversation. Clay sipped his tea and put his thoughts about everything in order before speaking.

“Sarah and I are over,” may as well get the painful part out of the way before he got to the difficult part.

“I thought as much since she is still on your beach speaking to Commander Rabb.”

Clay went back to his tea.

Porter waited a beat before bringing up why she figured her son was really sitting across from her, “Director Kershaw told me about his offer.”

“Of course he did,” Clay said only somewhat pouty. Kershaw was almost sure he couldn’t make an appropriate decision on his own.

Porter fixed her son with a look reserved only to keep him from getting too pouty, “Clayton, he could have asked you to retire.”

She was right, “I don’t know which of the two options I should take.”

“You were happy behind a desk before. You can be again.”

Porter was right, the pressures of dealing with a post 9/11 world in the field was what got to him. All of the interrogations, the murder, and everything else had finally gotten to him. He couldn’t be the Agency’s go to man any more, not like he had been. He realized he no longer needed the field, but he’d be there when the field needed him.

Clay nodded, “Thank you, Mother.”

CHARACTER NAME: Christopher Pike, PhD.
FANDOM: Star Trek XI
JOB: History Teacher
MOST LIKELY TO: Most likely to succeed
YEARBOOK QUOTE: "Your aptitude tests are off the charts, so what is it? You like being the only genius-level repeat offender in the Midwest?"

Personality
In most situations Pike tries to find the humor in things. He uses sarcasm more frequently than most, and sometimes has a dry sense of humor. He does have fun with his life. When he needs to be serious he is, and everyone knows it. He is also somewhat of a hardass, due to his military background. He usually gets frustrated before he gets angry.

Pike is very sociable, he can shmooze with the best of them. He can play the office politics game when he has to. He does his best to be as honest as possible in most situations though, feeling like it’s unfair to jerk people around too much. On occasion, he has terrible bouts with foot-in-mouth disease, especially with women he finds attractive.

Chris doesn’t have too many friends, preferring a small number of close friends to a large number of acquaintances. He usually tries to keep a professional distance from most of his colleagues.

He’s been described by some as a cowboy born in the wrong century based on his hobbies, horses, shooting, and guitar playing. He tries his best to hide the latter from most people he knows, as he isn’t one to really perform in front of others.

In the classroom, Pike is often a difficult teacher, but maintains that if his students do what he asks them to do, they will pass his class with little difficulty. He has a difficult time dealing with students that slack off. Though he's always available for extra help or most other things his students that put in some effort might need his help with.

He’s generally good at reading people and understands that just because his students might act like jerks that they aren’t bad kids. Pike is also the one to provide a gentle or not so gentle kick in the pants for those that need it.

Canon History from Memory Alpha
His Journal's Biography post and Education and schooling post

Christopher Pike is a 53 year old History teacher at West High School.

Pike grew up in the small town of Mojave, California and is the son of Charles Pike, an enlisted member of the Airforce, and Willa (McKinnes) Pike, a homemaker who always had dreams of being an architect. His homelife was relatively stable, eventhough his parents' marraige was unhappy. School for Young Chris was successful, and he was both an excellent football player and an excellent student, his favorite subject being history. His hobbies as a young man centered around horse riding, and is something he enjoys to this day. His music collection is extensive, and dates back to when he was a teenager.

Upon graduating high school, Chris applied to the United States Air Force Academy, with a major in military history. He chose to become a pilot rose through the ranks quickly after leaving the Academy and would have stayed in the service had he not been shot. As a result, he walks with a cane.

Since Chris excelled in school prior to the Air Force, and it was something he could do while recovering from his injuries, he enrolled at Stanford University and received a Master's Degree in Teaching and Curriculum before applying to The University of New Mexico for a PhD in War and Society.

He applied for a position at West High School and is currently known as one of the most difficult teachers in the school. Since he still rides horses and has a military background, maintains his skill at using firearms.

Set seven years after Webb's return from Paraguay and five years after he "came in from the cold" and quit field work and is now Deputy Director of Operations, Counterintelligence. He spends his days pushing paper, making the difficult decisions, and generally being a bureaucrat. On his downtime he participates in a weekly (and decently secret) poker game with The Director of Clandestine Service, Arthur Campbell, the D-CIA, the D-NIS, Harrison Kershaw, Webb's direct supervisor.

Webb has run into one of the CIA's newest recruits, Annie Walker (freshoffthefarm). Webb took an almost instant liking to Annie, because she reminds him of how he was when he first joined the agency. They have embarked on an interesting relationship.

Webb also knows the Head of the Domestic Protection Division, Joan Campbell (dpd_hbic). He and Joan have an interesting relationship as well. They were two of the Agency's best operatives, now both driving a desk. Webb sees his relationship with Joan as a competition. Whether Joan agrees with that is a different story all together.

One of the operatives in Webb's department, Myra Hughes (wanted_tofly) was recently asked by Joan to babysit Annie for a while. Webb is almost sure it's because of his relationship with Annie that Myra was chosen for that task.
