Pairing: Ellen Fanshaw/Geoffrey Tennant
Fic Title: The Quality of Mercy
Genre: Smut, Romance
Why This Must Be Read: I've been rereading Slings & Arrows fic lately, and fell in love with this story all over again - it's Ellen and Geoffrey in their younger, pre-canon years, during a production of The Merchant of Venice, and it is intense and crazy hot (written for Kink Bingo for the prompt biting/bruising). I love how this fic shows the depths and desperation and sheer need they have for each other, with all these little edges of destructive, powerful beauty.
