Why This Must Be Read: The fiancé and I marathoned the first season of Broadchurch a couple weeks ago, and I noticed this fic come across my dashboard during that time, and oh my god, it was exactly what I wanted to read after the season one finale - the hesitant, almost odd fall into domesticity, the family-of-choice themes, this long, slow path to something better in the midst of community tragedy, the eventual make outs, everything. Gorgeously written, small and observant and quiet, and just perfect.
