Why This Must Be Read: This story reads intense, hot, and sweet. Linden and Holder's dialogue here isn't just entertaining; it's believable, too. Their back and forth is precious. These two say so much without actually saying it. The author captured their dynamic and their vulnerability just beautifully. These two characters are each needy, broken survivors in their own way, and when written right, they fit together perfectly. In this story, they are written right. Actually, if you're a fan of Linden/Holder, you should just go read every single story Lilysmum has written about them. ;)

Why This Must Be Read: More than anything, this is a character study of Tony in the days after the Battle of New York, as he adjusts to new normals and just maaaaybe being ready to follow Captain America into the jaws of death. But Pepper's role in his life—and the steadiness and understanding she brings—are instrumental to that adjustment, and you just KNOW she could've prevent Civil War if she'd been around.
