Why This Must Be Read: I'm a sucker for always-a-girl hockey fics, but I think this one is compelling even if you aren't into this fandom. This version of Sid Crosby is particularly wonderful. Her slow-burn intense feelings for Geno are so incredible to watch unfold over the course of the 2010 Olympic games. Twentysomething's descriptions evoke a lot of latent emotion, and I love that. The use of Alex Ovechkin as comedic relief is what brings me back to this story time and time again. My ao3 bookmark just says: literally my favorite sid/geno story (girl sid has such fucking good hair)

Mods: Sorry about the formatting screw-up, also can you add my special reccer tag?

Special reccer tag added! We can tinker with the formatting over on the Tumblr side, but LJ doesn't let us change the text of someone else's entry in the community.

FWIW, I usually do my recs on the HTML side of LJ's update page to avoid copy/paste bizarreness (you can also ctrl-click and "paste and match formatting"), but the formatting here is really fine. NO idea why Tumblr disagrees, though...
