"April in Paris (The Hemingway Remix)" by Sabine (PG)

Fandom Category: Sports Night
Pairing: Natalie Hurley/Jeremy Goodwin, Natalie Hurley/Dan Rydell
Fic Title: April in Paris (The Hemingway Remix)
Author: Sabine
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 17 of 30

Why This Must Be Read: This is a different kind of fic for a show like Sports Night - it strips away Sorkin's distinctive dialog and gives us a sparse, Hemingway-esque WWII AU with Natalie as a nurse on the front in France and the boys as soldiers. It's a change that sounds like it wouldn't work, but the core essence of the characters and show is still here, so that it's wonderful how the combination comes together and merges in a way you might not expect. I especially love this version of Natalie (this setting is just the right showcase for her brand of blunt practicality) and Dan (who, gosh, I just love so much as a character).
