Why This Must Be Read: In which Sam realizes that while Natasha is damn good at blowing his mind, she never ever tells him what she likes, in bed or out of it. I really love this story, with Natasha still trying to figure out who she is and so afraid of being vulnerable but trying anyway! And Sam! Just wanting to please her and know who she is!

Why This Must Be Read: I might be a liiiiitle biased because this was written for meeee, but also it is objectively a BEAUTIFUL story. fartherfaster is a master of poetic prose--I love her turns of phrases and the beauty of the imagery she uses. I love that Maria is unapologetically queer (bi/pan, demisexual) and that when she turns Sam down the first time, he very sincerely offers to be her friend instead. And I love the friendship they build, the slow burning attraction and the growing trust and respect. I love how they're both broken a little, scarred both literally and figuratively, but they don't let their trauma define them and they don't pity the other for what they've gone through. Highly recommended.
