Why This Must Be Read: You know those fics that just stick with you, no matter how unlikely the pair or the subject matter? This is one of those stories. In it, two halves of two pairs slowly become a new sort of pair, while helping each other heal after near-unspeakable loss that, really, only the other can understand. The whole piece is framed by Padma's exploration of Muggle medicine in tandem with the magical healing arts, and the result is an eloquent, achingly poignant piece.
