Why This Must Be Read: I had honestly forgotten how spoiled I was by the Puck/Rachel writers in the Glee fandom. smc-27 is one of those and damn if she didn't remind me how amazing not only SHE is, but how amazing this pairing is. What I like best about this, though, is that the author just sort of effortlessly shifts certain things around and makes the whole thing better. Well, for Puck/Rachel people anyway. ;) Honestly, this is just a lovely little wrap up (with a lot of hope for the future) with these two characters that neither demonizes the situations they find themselves in, nor does it tie everything up in a perfect bow.
