Pairing: Isobel Stevens/Alex Karev
Fic Title: The Only Exception
Why This Must Be Read:Reason 1- Because this is where the show should have headed after that shooting. Izzie comes back and faces the issues behind her leaving, stands beside her friends while they deal with the trauma, and patches up her marriage. Reason 2- Because Izzie is truly Alex's only exception, and this fic displays the hows and whys perfectly. Reason 3- Nobody writes this pairing like this author. Darley has written a frightening number of terrific Alex/Izzie fics, but i can't rec them all, unfortunately. So just check her profile and be awed by her talent.
