Why This Must Be Read | This is the story that changed my fic reading habits. It's all the things I would NEVER usually read. It's got Mark Sloan in it for starters. And it's Mark/Lexie futurefic. And, probably most significantly of all, it's babyfic. But I relented and read it anyway. And it's brilliant. And showed me that all of these things that I would never want to happen on my show can be completely captivating in fic. And for anyone put off by the idea of babyfic like I initially was, it's not at all what I was expecting and I dare you to try it! But as much as she hadn’t wanted a hypothetical baby, an actual baby she couldn’t make herself not want. With all they had been through in the past year, with all Lexie had ever been through...Well, she knew life was short and there wasn’t always a later.

Why This Must Be Read | She keeps these secrets like April keeps checklists and charts. They’re more than habits to her; they’re familiar. Jackson’s not one to ask about her family and that’s when she decides to keep him too. This double life is easier. She can keep the good and hide the bad and it feels so easy and somehow frees her.

Why This Must Be Read | The sheets stay off and the lights stay on and there’s something eerie about the brightness, and they’re too naked, and this is all making her feel much too insecure.

Why This Must Be Read | In the wake of the season six finale, the fic that was produced by a handful of authors in the Grey's Anatomy fandom outshone anything and everything the writers managed to dish up. This one, by slybrunette, manages to be completely raw and gut-wrenching in a way that actually hurts. It’s not the act that’s significant as much as the order. It’s that he fucks her and then kisses her that bears repeating. There’s a difference if you learn to read between the lines but, then, that’s the way it always has to be with him.
