Pairing: Bel Rowley/Freddie Lyon
Fic Title: Confessing Out the Soul
Genre: romance, h/c
Why This Must Be Read: The shortest description of this fic is "Freddie and Bel in the aftermath of series two." Quite a few fics have tackled post-s2 developments, but this fic has a deft hand for characterization and a Bel/Freddie dynamic that I love.
Fic Title: find it hard to sleep tonight
Summary: She ushers the two of them out like a couple of ducklings and locks the door behind her.
Why This Must Be Read: This is a fic that shows Bel and Freddie in the earliest years of their friendship, and it's a sweet slice of life that sets up their later dynamic wonderfully. Also, yellow lamp origin story!
Fic Title: and we are so fragile
Summary: Bel hasn't put on lipstick in a while.
Why This Must Be Read: This is a great Bel POV fic post-s2 that is just stunningly written. It really captures the heartbreak of the way Bel feels about Freddie, but also the sense of comfort he brings her.
