Pairing: Juliet Burke/James Ford
Fic Title: Going By The Books
Why This Must Be Read: One shots portraying James and Juliet 's life in Dharma under a realistic light are always a wonderful reading, especially if they combine in some good character' study. Also, this ficlet manages to give off a lovely fatalistic feeling without coming across as a sad fic. The writing is very evocative in its simplicity.
Basically, it's James and Juliet looking through some books one night and discussing why namers matter and why Juliet dislikes hers so.
