Why This Must Be Read: This fic is perfect. Completely perfect. So go read it. Hahah. Maegfan takes a 'three times' approach here, with three times they kissed as the structure of the story. It takes place a few months after the season final; Mrs Chandler is dead and Tom has been mourning her. Seeing this strong, beautiful, devoted husband mourn is heartbreaking but it's important to see him go through it. To feel him go through it, and the friendship with Rachel that supports him. Then slowly, over time, for that friendship to turn into more. There's no infidelity or anything, which I love. It's organic, honest, and captures both of them to a tee. It's just perfect.

mods, if I could please have some new tags that'd be awesome. thanks.

Hi! In the past, this community has only used special reccer tags for the month that the person is doing their special reccing, and I think that's what we're going to continue to do moving forward, so I removed your special reccer tag from this post. FYI, if you're interested in a way to see everything you've posted here in general, you can use the following super useful link:

Heh, no problem! And I didn't know the ?poster= trick until recently and it kind of blew my mind with how awesome it was. Seriously, so useful.
