Why This Must Be Read: This fic is a delightful and true addition to canon. It has great plotting, allusions to real-life historical events, and a surprising twist to a certain earnest character. In a fandom where every single character is crazy, I enjoyed the added insight for Jacuzzi and Nice's particular brands. The fic is even told in the same timeline-jumping style, only it has welcome headers at the start of each section to tell you when you are. ^^ It also passes the Bechdel Test!
