First of all, some of you might have guessed this because I've already podficced two of this author's stories, but pretty much ANYTHING Chash AKA poor_choices
(her fic journal is longsufferingly
) writes is probably going to be an insta-rec from me. She is just... amazing. Every time I read something of hers I will probably laugh at SOME point. Or I'll cry. Or I'll just be left breathless and gleeful. Or all three. I couldn't read this last fic of hers without reccing it, though...
Any time someone asks me what my favourite books are, "The Giver" by Lois Lowry is on that list. So actually if you haven't read it you should read that first. It is one of the most affecting books of my whole life, I love it so much.
This fic, since feeling is first
, has MAJOR spoilers for "The Giver" so don't spoil yourself if that kind of thing bothers you! It is a J2 au set in that universe, but it is much more than a creative new way to have j2 smut. It is an absolutely beautiful tribute to Lois Lowry's creation, and a stunning imaginary addition to the universe. It's kind of my headcanon for "The Giver" after everything. I love the exploration of the changes that occur in the community and the way it affects these characters, and Chash has honoured the tone and writing style of the novel so well... it's just the best thing ever. EVER.
READ THE GIVER, YOU GUYS. AND THEN READ THIS FIC.
P.S. I promise to get back to the Supernatural meme eventually!
