Why This Must Be Read: This was actually a new find for me. It's an AU retelling of season 2 with the premise of instead of Meg being on the bus, Veronica is. It's very respectful of the current canon but gives a lot more face time to Eli and lets Veronica really make some decisions about her life and where she wants it to go. I honestly like the Veronica in this story more than I do the one in the aired season 2, and not just because of the pairing. This is the Veronica we got to know in season 1 carrying through and keeping herself grounded and in charge, even when a lot of her control is taken away.
