Why This Must Be Read: How could you listen to a song like "Sunrise" or "When You're Home" and not hope these two crazy kids can find a way to make it work? It's true Benny and Nina have a few things working against them--not the least of which is the considerable physical separation of Washington Heights and Palo Alto--but MiraMira makes you believe they'll go the distance (literally and otherwise).


Fandom: West Side Story
Pairing: Maria/Tony
Title: If It's Sewing, She Sews

Why This Must Be Read: Watching Maria not only put herself together but also grow up and come into her own as an adult is, in this fic, unforgettably rewarding. The language is as beautiful as the canon that inspired it, and the song referenced in the title casts the whole story in an incredibly poignant light.
