ficlet: the Devil is in the Details  
"Duo, you don't think using your parachute canopy as a backdrop was a little over the top?"

"Nope. Just some extra meticulous Attention To Detail, that Une has noted I sometimes lack."

Heero had to make one more attempt at reason. "Leaving your note to me in the margin of our mission report wasn't exactly a best practice."

"Granted, but it also didn't warrant the public ass-chewing about attention to detail."
Personally, Heero thought Une had shown admirable restraint to 'she's sucking the air out of this briefing room even faster than in that cell on the moonbase,' but he wasn't going to argue the point.

"We're just demonstrating that I am indeed attentive to details. Even small ones in fine print in the Preventer Manual appendices. The requirements are clear - and I quote - 'badge photo must be taken onsite at HQ, and must demonstrate the Agent's professional character.' I never liked the photo on mine anyway."

"Yes, Lady Une?"
"Remove Maxwell and Yuy's access to the Preventer Canine Corps." Sighing to herself, Une knew this was a mere gesture. She pressed the intercom to speak with her personal assistant. "Get CorpComm and Legal to rewrite the ID photo requirements with compliments to Maxwell for being so attentive to the details." 

ETA: correcting a few typos that were physically hurting me.

EXACTLY! When Preventers is just getting started, it seems like there could be a lot of that "I'm in charge here" stuffiness. And Duo wouldn't put up with it any more than you did :-)
