Genre: romance, world building, AU
Why This Must Be Read: To be sure, this is a hot hot fic, but the world building in this short piece just makes you want more. Told through the eyes of Eli's niece (who was in the show as a child but Jaq adds such depth to the teenaged character that she feels like a fully realized character in her own right) its a touching, heartbreaking, veronica-mars-y future-AU that just really works.
"Once more the world shifts, sharpens, and snaps into focus, but this time, I wish it hadn't. Sometimes the truth hurts too much."
