Word Count: 572
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Miranda Hennessy and John Reese discuss collars.
Warnings: Some blink-and-miss-it discussion of BDSM sexytimes, but all parties are consenting adults in happy relationships, so.
Notes: This one's gonna take a little explaining. So I watch this show called Person of Interest, which is amazing and I recommend everyone watch it if you're into crime shows where the women are utterly amazing and the men are faintly ridiculous. Turns out Sara watches it too, and she wrote fic (which I also recommend) that takes place in an alternate universe where your gender is not defined by your biological sex but rather by whether you are a dominant or submissive personality, and as I understand it, a collar is roughly equivalent to a wedding ring. I'm borrowing it from the Polyfaceted crew, but I believe it was conceived by some other folks? IDK. It's not mine.

Everyone got that? Good. From that confluence of events, this story happened. Blame Sara. And enjoy.
