Fic Title: All The Way To Reno
Author: Violet or tangleofthorns
Genre: Romance/Drama/Character Study
Why This Must Be Read: I think this has probably been recced all over the place already, because it's from several years ago, but it's one of my favorites. I've always gotten a mainly friendship vibe from Catherine & Grissom on the show, but this story really makes be believe in them as a couple. They're both such fully realized characters in this story; and so comfortable and honest with each other by the end because of their shared history. It's also just a great Catherine character piece, with wonderful backstory for her and a great character voice. It's just a lovely fic all around.
