Summary: Maxie’s always been searching for life.
A/N: As soon as I saw the Maxie/Franco episodes, I was wishing the Franco storyline was more focused on them rather than Jason (as much as I love him), but whatever. Anyway, I was inspired by jadehaku’s challenge over at the Franco/Maxie board at invisonfree, so here it is. In exactly 150 words.
Maxie’s always been searching for life. New ways to make herself live. (After everything with BJ, she kind of feels she owes it to the girl to do what she’ll never get the chance to do.) But to Maxie, living isn’t just about being alive, it’s more than that. It’s about feeling.
“There’s no point to any of this,” she used to tell her sister, “if you don’t get to feel everything you possibly can.”
Franco, she found, made her live in a whole new way.
It was like walking on a tightrope without a net, like standing on the edge of a high rise building, like jumping into an ocean. It was exhilarating and fun and terrifying all at once.This, she later reflects, was what must have drawn Franco to her. After all, what attracts a man hell bent on death more than the living persona of life?
