Why This Must Be Read: Alex's relationship with Neal is just so intriguing in canon and the author's exploration of their dynamic in this piece and the baggage they both bring to the relationship rings true from the show and after reading this story I really wish there was more of this pairing out there.

This isn’t the first time they’ve had this fight.

It’s the vase that shatters at her feet that stops her mid-sentence. She glares at him, all sarcastic astonishment and frustration. A sigh that tells him he’s worse than a child throwing a tantrum. Her boots crunch over broken glass and she slams the door.

She promises herself it’s the last time she’ll let him burn this bridge.
