Why This Must Be Read:
Oh. My. God. This fic is amazing. The entire thing (except for the epilogue), 80+K words overall, takes place between the rooftop and Veronica waiting at the airport in 2.22 ("Not Pictured"). Just about every question I had (and some I didn't even know about) but that were never answered when season 3 started are answered in this heartbreaking, but ultimately true to the world of Veronica Mars fic.
I started reading this yesterday and I could not put it down. Erm, I mean, I could not make myself close my browser. All the major players are in it and we get a shifting POV from Veronica to Logan to Keith from chapter to chapter. Which you'd think would be repetitive, but really, it so isn't. Nothing is white-washed; this fic is occasionally brutal. I'm going to be thinking about this one for a long, long time.
