Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: AU, Genderswap, Romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: I love a good genderswap, which is the only reason I clicked idly over to this story a couple days ago (despite never having read hockey RPF before in my life, or even being familiar with the players at all!) and was just blown away.

Sidney is the first woman to make it in the NHL, but is forced to play on the Canadian Olympic women's hockey team while her teammates play on the various men's teams. This is a long, lovely story with a crackling slow burn friendship-to-romance, the sharing-a-bed trope (my favorite!), the chase for Olympic gold, and lots of wonderfully drawn, lived-in details and relationships. Just fantastic.
