Author: voleuse
Fandom: Grey's Anatomy
Character: Bailey & Webber
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Summary: As if the explosion of cats were another statistic!
Notes: S1, no spoilers



Week One

Miranda stops by the chief's office about forty-five minutes after their first shift begins.

She does not let anyone announce her, nor does she announce herself. Instead, she stands in the center of his doorway and waits.

The chief is staring, with much importance, at a manila folder on his desk. From the way he clears his throat, Miranda knows he's staring with great importance on purpose.

She keeps waiting anyway. Doesn't move, doesn't so much as cough.

He looks up, stares at her over the frame of his glasses.

"Yes, Dr. Bailey?"

She folds her arms.

He leans back in his chair. "Don't tell me they're that bad."

She considers her interns for a moment, then pronounces their sentence.

"Worse."


Week Three

The chief stops by her office at the end of the day, as she's typing the third draft of her précis.

"They're not so bad," he remarks.

"Half the nurses are boycotting Yang." Miranda replies, not even looking up from her monitor. "And two more patients complained about Karev."

The chief's sigh is loud enough to echo. "Do I even want to ask about the others?"

"Only if you want to know which one is most likely to cry during a quadruple bypass."

"Right." And his footsteps fade away.

Miranda hits the spellcheck option.


Week Five

The interns are standing down in the lobby, their voices spiking up to where Miranda stands.

"So what do you think now?" The chief smirks at her as he walks up, leans on the railing next to her. "They're not completely hopeless."

She shrugs, continues to watch the hand gestures Stevens is making as she talks.

"They'll grow on you, you'll see," he continues. "Every group goes through a period of adjustment. I remember, even y--"

Miranda turns her head, and raises an eyebrow.

The chief stumbles mid-word, then smiles.

"You'll see," he amends. "Just wait."

She hmphs, but doesn't bother to disagree.

This is so great! I love Bailey's feelings about the interns, and that she and the Chief discuss them.
This was my favorite part:
She folds her arms.

He leans back in his chair. "Don't tell me they're that bad."


It made me laugh out loud!

Awesome job!

I love Bailey to little bits, and this is so her!

And the chief's "even y--" and Bailey's reaction - priceless!

This is lovely. I adore Bailey's very canon characterization and a more intimate yet professional view or Richard.

So much love! So much Bailey love! I love the way she softens to them without ever giving anyone so much as hint that maybe she is softening to them.
