Pairing: Bela Talbot/Miles Straume
Fic Title: A Girl That Could Easily Twist Your Mind (But Right Now It Feels So Fine)
Rating/Warning(s): PG (a bit of grave-robbing)
Why This Must Be Read:
The sort of flirting is new, too, and frankly Miles doesn't know what to make of it. Oh, he'd love to have a chance at Bela, but he knows she's just way too out of his league for it to happen. Miles pokes his eggs and wishes for this trip to end sooner rather than later before he does something idiotic like fall in love.
Full disclosure: this fic was written for me so that goes a long way in explaining why it’s my all-time favorite. But I don’t just love it because it features my very favorite crossover OTP or because it’s tailored to my own set of kinks, I love it because it’s a layered, plotty, wry road trip fic about Miles Straume falling in love with Bela Talbot.
gottalovev absolutely nails Miles in this. His snark and his reluctance to fall for anyone is pitch perfect. The way he interacts with Bela is so much fun. Her Bela is amazing as well (and let’s face it, there’s not nearly enough well-written Bela fic in the world.) The whole thing culminates in my favorite fic kiss ever. It involves rain, mud, and an open grave.
It’s a wonderful, fun fic with a unique ship and I can’t seem to get enough of it.
