Three Vic/Walt recs for Longmire

Longmire is an impressively-plotted show with rich, multi-faceted characters who want to jump each other's bones but can't - aka fanfic writer's heaven.  Strangely, there's only a tiny amount of fanfic, but most of it is Vic/Walt, and some of it is marvellous.

Why This Must Be Read:  The entire story feels like stream of consciousness straight from Vic Moretti’s mind. Short, sharp sentences, a bleak worldview, one-liners so funny they’ll make laugh out loud, dialogue so true to the show you’ll think you’re watching rather than reading about Vic running from her fics for Walt.

Why This Must Be Read: A beautiful little idea – Walt used to buy marijuana to ease his wife’s pain – teased out to a beautiful, cathartic release.  Hazy and perfect, the smoke metaphor masterfully woven throughout.

Why This Must Be Read: There are a lot of ‘trapped under the Mistletoe’ stories out there in fanfic, but few are as satisfying as this one.  It had me at “that’s a sexual harassment suit waiting to happen” because … exactly, Vic.  Exactly.  Beautiful characterisation, not just for our main pair but for Cady Longmire as well, and a slow, gentle unwrapping of one way Vic and Walt might choose to find their way forward together.
