Spoilers: None. Set pre-series, about two and a half years. Nate is married to Maggie.
 
Painting: Vincent Van Gogh, Wheatfield with Crows, 1890, Oil on canvas, 19.9 in × 40.6 in
 
A/N: Part four in a five-part series of one-shots focused on three of my favorite things: Nate, Sophie, and art. Although my brother has helped select the other paintings, this one was all my idea. Fifteen years ago, I had the opportunity to see this haunting painting at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and I’ve carried it in my head ever since. That’s art.

A/N: Part three in a five-part series of one-shots focused on three of my favorite things: Nate, Sophie, and art. Special thanks to my brother, an art school graduate, for helping me pick this painting and for supplying the excellent description of Diebenkorn’s style. Any mistakes are my own, because as the older sister, it’s my birth-right to ignore him sometimes. :) 
 
 
---------------------------
Sophie’s entire dating career had been something of a nightmare, which she attributed wholly to her pitiful selection of choices. As she saw it, she could either date a fellow grifter or date an honest citizen. The pitfalls of dating a fellow grifter were obvious: trust issues, paranoia, possible law enforcement investigations, double-crosses, and difficult schedules.

Nate arrived at her room while Sophie was still getting ready. He always claimed that he was just punctual, but she thought he had it confused with “obsessively early.” She crossed the small hotel room in three long strides and opened the door.

Nate walked through the corridors of the museum administration building, greeting the familiar faces and commiserating with them over the broken air conditioning. Nate had always hated this modern monstrosity, condemning it as a blight on an otherwise perfectly respectable urban landscape. But since Maggie started working here as a freelance art authenticator a few weeks ago, he’d visited it often enough to develop a true loathing based on its many quirks and flaws.
