Fic Title: The Balance of Affection
Author: Anonymous (for now, per the rules of Yuletide)
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Genre: Comedy, romance, family togetherness (Is that a genre? I'm sure it should be.)
Why This Must Be Read: I've loved the Enchanted Forest Chronicles since I was a teenager, but it always made me a little sad that in the last two books of the series there isn't much interaction betweene Cimorene and Mendanbar (who, personally, I think have one of the most equal, healthy, and loving relationships in fantasy literature). This fic goes a long way to curing me of that sadness. It is very much in the spirit of the series, and I loved seeing how time hasn't diminished Cimorene and Mendanbar's love for one another. I also loved the family moments in the story as well. There are a few bittersweet moments, but I smiled through most of the story, and laughed out loud a couple times as well. If you are a fan of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, this is a must read!
Dearest mods, may I have an Enchanted Forest Chronicles tage, as well as a Cimorene/Mendanbar tag? Thanks!
