Why This Must Be Read: Right, so a couple years (yeesh) ago, I wound up reading a bunch of Tin Man fic. Love or hate the source, there is some damn find fanfic out there. During one of my many, many, many hours of trolling FF.net, I ran across this story, and it's one that's stuck with me since. Most of the fic for Tin Man focuses on the staying in or redevelopment of The O.Z. This is not the case for this story. In this, DG leaves, and Cain follows. And while that also seems kind of cliche, this story is anything but. Definitely more of a friendship story than a romance, this is a fabulous exploration of two people who are outside of pretty much everything, and their attempts to deal. I also love that the ending, and DG and Cain's relationship in that ending, is ambiguous. Seriously, a really, really good story.
