I have to mention the absolutely phenomenal story written for me this Yuletide:
Next Steps (2423 words) by rapacityinblue
Fandom: Sally Lockhart - Philip Pullman
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Daniel Goldberg/Sally Lockhart, Jim Taylor/Adelaide Bevan
Characters: Sally Lockhart, Daniel Goldberg, Adelaide Bevan, Jim Taylor, Rebecca Winter, Harriet
Some time after the end of The Tin Princess, Becky meets up with the rest to say goodbye.
I love this series of books, this one in particular, and what rapacityinblue did was to give me the story I wanted - in which there aren't any easy answers, but characters aren't kept apart simply for the sake of creating tension; there are things they all need to work through, and they do it quietly, in a grown-up way that still feels hopeful and smart and just right. If you loved this book, you will love this fic.
