HOLY FUCKING FUCK. Pardon my French, but... there is <i>no other word for it.</i>
She just totally - she wrote in the space I adore, which is where gen gets so slashy you can't really tell, but you know there's a Happily Ever After, AND SO MUCH FREAKING LOVE IT WARMS THE WHOLE HOUSE. The whole world.
In sum: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Also, it's SO well-written I can almost guess who it is, but part of the fun is not knowing, but now I'm also curious to see if my deductions are vindicated or if I am about to discover yet another quite unbelievable writer. I just... I... omg.
And omg she wrote to my specs and shoehorned in every one of my optional details which are optional, and it's so warm and intimate and... I'm just melted.
Here you go. And remember to let her know, ie leave a comment, if you like it as much as I do (which you will, it's witty and sharp-edged and gorgeous and suspenseful and spycraft-y and deals with aging (appropriate for my 40th birthday, which was on the 9th) and written like - it has central metaphors and ongoing images and HOLY FUCK.)
Excuse me, I need to go and swoon now.
