Rumor Has It by [livejournal.com profile] gyzym
--In which Santana Lopez learns the hard way that a life can never be ruined, only lived, and lived, and lived. Glee, Santana/Brittany, Santana/OFC

I... don't actually have the words to express what finding and reading this story has done to me, this week of all the weeks of my life. I'm not at all in the Glee fandom; haven't even watched the show since before Blaine turned up. But this. Well, it's by Jizzy, and that ought to be enough of a rec in itself, but if you need more, let me just tell you that I cried about four times as I was reading it, and my face is literally wet with tears right now -- tears of relief, and a kind of hope that I'd forgotten how to feel, frankly.

Isn't life interesting? There are these moments, as [livejournal.com profile] stardust_made very wisely said to me the other day, that kind of resonate through the years. Random moments that have nothing to recommend them except for how they twist your perception to a different value of truth, change the way you see everything without even trying, just because they're there. It's a journey, and we're making it, and no matter how boring life gets, it's these moments that make it sparkle, these moments when the light twists just so and the reflection is a fucking rainbow.

I'm pretty sure this story is going to stay with me for the rest of my life, in one way or another. Probably it won't mean the same thing to other people as it does to me; likely it's coloured by all the stuff going on the past few days. Regardless, it's a story about growing up, coming into your own, and all the different things it means. I recommed it with all my heart.

So apparently, even a week later, I still have ALLL THE TRF FEELS EVER. I've pored over all the post-TRF fics I could find, have gorged myself on John's mysery and despair. However, I haven't been able to find a Mystrade fic that deals with the aftermath. And when, last night, I sat down to write a wee little thing about it, for the reason outlined below, I found I had all the words, and, er. This happened. It's actually not what I set out to write at all, but it turns out it's what wanted to get written, so.


Title: The Space Between
Pairing: Mycroft/Lestrade, hints of Sherlock/John
Rating: R
Word count: ~3,000
Warning: Spoilers for TRF, perceived character death, hurt/comfort, angst, hints of alcohol abuse.
Summary: In which Lestrade deals with the aftermath of the events showcased in TRF, vis-a-vis the other Holmes brother.
Notes: For the very wonderful [livejournal.com profile] stardust_made, whose birthday was last week. I've only just found out, and wanted to write a little something to celebrate the start of her next trip around the sun.


What's the point of giving anyone a key if you're going to make it impossible for him to use it a bloody week later? )
