Bourne Series, 2 Recs, Nicky Parsons/Jason Bourne

Between the time I wrote this recs and today I managed to watch the latest movie and it left me with a mighty need to go searching for fics, I haven't been able to so far, so right now you get what I had before (less really, because the other two I had prepared had already been recced and I only noticed 10 mins ago) but I promise to rec more in the future if I find anything interesting

Anyway, have some Bourne!

Why This Must Be Read: I love both characters, and after watching the latest movie [Spoiler]I was very very pissed off at how they treated Nicky so fics like this one are gonna have to keep me going. In here Nicky is a fully fleshed out character, with her own backstory of being part of a secret operation. Very intriguing, I wish there was more of this fic because there's just so much that could be explored, anyway as it stands it's still perfect.

Why This Must Be Read: I like smut just like anyone else, but I love the fact that before it gets to that, in this fic the nature of their relationship is not sexual. Just two individuals hiding and doing the best they can. Also, this story assumes that Nicky and Jason knew each other from before (which are my favorites and thank you canon for bringing it up and then doing nothing with it) and deals with them remembering.
