Why this must be read:
This is a little gem I discovered on ff.net. It's got a seemingly high word count for a one-shot but you blaze just through it because of the author's great easy to read style. I also love it how she manages to create wonderful tension between the two, taking her time with making them realize how they feel about each other, writing both their insecurities and misgivings. Her Laura is a very determined one (and she has to be with such a stoic Evan in denial ;)) and her Evan is the strong soldier with the insecurities and dutifulness underneath the tough exterior we all love so much. It's really well-rounded, Evan and Laura are both very much in-character and not exactly making it easy for each other. ShaViva really did a great job with this one.
