While the CIA has a scary reputation, they also have some very strict limitations. Among them is the fact that they are forbidden by law to operate within the borders of the United States - much like MI-6 in the UK, but it's even more illegal for the CIA to run operations within the US.
The immediate reaction of any federal agent (such as the Director of NCIS) to discovering that the CIA is running an operation in the State of Virginia or the State of Maryland would be to arrest them on the spot. Failure to do so would itself be a crime.
The proper agency for dealing with spies or other foreign agents (or whatever the agents in the Director's office are trying to pull) inside the US would be the FBI - the US equivalent of MI-5.

Exodus 22:18 only says witch in the modern English translation that was derived from old English. The Latin version it was translated from says wicce. Wicce is the root word of wicked, and means (literally) poisoner. That is, a person who commits murder with poison as a weapon.
The root of witch is wicca. Wicca originates from a completely different language and means wise one. But in old English, the letters a and e are the same letter.
Which makes more sense? That a section of the Bible on crimes and punishments directs you to execute murderers, or that it directs you to execute anyone who has wisdom?

Three words Wow!

I was so hoping Abby was a witch. I love the way Harry told the the gang that he got to the ship with more style. So classic that.
| Gracealma chapter 2 . 2/15/2013
I so like the story line. The gang trying to get information on Harry. And Harry isn't telling. I wonder if Abby is a witch from her saying "in school at the time…secluded and out of the way"?

should be noted that the word 'witch' in the bible reference (apparently, this is something anyone who cares should look into closer for themselves) is a term specifically meaning someone who deals with demons to gain supernatural abilities and the like.
no demons (or other extra-dimensional entities not aligned with God), no problem. (not that there's any other source of 'magic' mentioned in the bible unless you count divine miracles, which ... might rate? nor are most humans that rational.)
on a sort of related note: the term 'giant' comes from the greek 'gigas' (i may have the wrong form of that word) meaning 'of the earth' which was the greek translation of the hebrew 'nephalim'(which i may be misspelling) which was the name given to half-angels. angel/human hybrids. demi-gods, in other words. according to the history/theology/whatever that goes with this stuff, the presence of such beings was the reason for the various 'wipe them out down to the last infant child' instructions to the Israelites in the old testament of the bible.
i present the above mostly as interesting trivia.
on a different note: a beta would improve the readability of this story greatly. all the standard grammatical glitches, ya know? wrong words, missing words, that sort of thing. also, lack of distinct marking of scene breaks makes things hard to follow.
i'll add, however, that i am reading and enjoying anyway. (i had something else i was going to mention, but it's completely left my brain and i think was about earlier chapters anyway.)

I was not certain how this mix would work but it turned out to be surprisingly good and enjoyed it greatly.
| fringeperson chapter 12 . 10/1/2010
That was very fun to read. Thank you.
| fringeperson chapter 3 . 10/1/2010
brilliant. just pure brilliance.
| fringeperson chapter 2 . 10/1/2010
please tell me that Abbey and Harry get together, even briefly. If she finds out about his wings... and him about hers... and I WANT to see his reaction to her coffin-couch...
moving on to the next chapter now... can't wait.

A little anticlimatic, but a nice ending none the less. ciao

What happened to Hermione? Nice story, if a little short, compared to the other Night Wolf stories. It wouuld have been nice to see some other NightWolf characters, though.
