Why This Must Be Read | An examination of Rory and Jess' relationship using... punctuation marks as a guide. It's perfection, basically. The characterisation is spot on. The format is unique. There is no dialogue (which is my favourite style), and the whole thing is beautiful. They meet in the middle, and it all works out.

Why This Must Be Read | Oh. This fic. This fic. It does things to me. It's sad in the most beautiful way. It's raw to the point of being cutting... particularly at the start. Jess' internal monologuing is painful in its desperation and despair. Just, read it. Seriously. Except she's dead. And he is alone, and he forgets what state he's in.

Why This Must Be Read | This author's grasp on Jess is stunning. Her understanding of the way he feels about Rory, of the way she affects him, is spine-tingling. I've read all her Rory/Jess fics countless times. He's always known, somewhere within the inner recesses of the heart he pretends not to have, that she would come back. It's their tragic flaw, their suicidal destiny, their very own, personalized Romeo and Juliet.

Why This Must Be Read | Unfortunately, The Pit has screwed up the formatting on this one (it's all in italics now for some reason, despite the fact that it wasn't the first 137 times I read it!), but don't let that put you off. This is a version of the Jess leaves on the bus fic that was attempted by many following that episode. This is my favourite :)
