Pairing: Mattie Ross/LaBoeuf
Fic Title: We Have No Rodeo Clowns in Yell County
Author: saraht (harriet_spy
Genre: Future fic. Character study.
Why This Must Be Read:
"As I grew into a young lady, I was not much troubled with suitors."
This nails Mattie's voice, her way of telling it like she sees it, but, a few years after she came home, that vision may be blighted a little by the realistically limited opportunities for her to make use of her talents (grr). And then LaBoeuf pays a visit...
Deftly and thoughtfully written, it gets the tone (which is vital considering the source) and characterisations right.
