for April Special Requests
Fandom Category: NCIS: Los Angeles
Pairing: Kensi Blye/Marty Deeks
Fic Title: Parenting for Dummies
Rating/Warning(s): I'd say PG-13 for most of the fic; the last chapter is rated M.
Genre: Romance, case file
Why This Must Be Read: The scenario of Kensi and Deeks going undercover as husband and wife has been done a hundred times in this fandom, but never have I seen it done so believably. The balance between the adorable facade they don while undercover and the dedication they have not only to their jobs but to each other is downright exquisite; we still recognize them as canonical Kensi and Deeks, but slowly as the cover falls away and the aliases bleed into every day and each other, we see that the lie isn't all that far from the truth. It's utterly engrossing and mesmerizing to see. It's one of those fics that shows you just how one word -- partner -- can be a substitute for three even stronger ones in "I love you."
