Author's Notes: Happy H/D holidays, Penny! <33333 You make fandom such a shiny place to be, and I hope you enjoy this. ♥ This story was heavily influenced by a range of literary and media works about special agents and their recruitment/training -- particularly the Jason Bourne series; a leitmotif phrase from The Recruit is used repeatedly. This story would be significantly poorer if not for the amazing beta-work by L & M. Many thanks also to J & T for coming through at the eleventh hour and putting up with my interpretive hand-flapping.
