There will be more and properly done spy_fest recs (I'm already assembling a little list), but allow me a moment full of pure squee.

You know how occasionally you come across a fic that's just utterly *perfect* for your mood and utterly *awesome* in itself and has you squeeing over turns of phrases because the writing is so good, and the characters come to life as if filched directly from canon (only better!) and it makes you laugh and cry and when you come up for air in the middle of it you wail because you realise you're already halfway through and you don't want it to be over, ever? I read that fic today :).

Stitches (Part 1 and Part 2) by anonymous (obviously) [Alex, Yassen; PG-13, 31 000 words]
Summary: When a mission goes wrong and Alex is critically wounded, the fifteen-year-old spy finds himself the unwilling captive (and patient) of a man he believed to be dead.

The summary says as much as I'd want to give away, but it's long and satisfactory and emotionally wrenching (that's a compliment!), and while it's not even that much my usual cup of tea, theme-wise, it's just... yes! But have a look for yourselves :).

Oh wow! That...that's exactly how I felt about my gift fic. You expressed it so much better!

Also, I caved. You finally got me curious enough - I just ordered the first volume. And I bookmarked the story.

I'm kind of excited about it now. The book's already on the way to me - I just had the notification email in my inbox.

Soooo...I have to admit that curiousity got the better of me and made me read that fic. I have pretty much no idea of canon. What I do know is from the things you mentioned in your journal. And really, normally I don't read fanfiction before canon - never ever. Until now.

Well. I have to agree, it's an awesome fic. Love the writing style, felt sympathy for both Alex and Yassen - and not to mention, it hits several of my kinks. Injured and at the mercy of an enemy? Bullet proof!

Made me look for more. And now I'm impatiently waiting for my book to arrive.

Sure! I'm always up for hugs. *hugs back*

Oh, I don't mind spoilers at all, so that's perfectly fine. In fact, they usually make me more curious. *g* My book should arrive today. *squee*
