    Absolutely gut wrenchingly gorgeous. CapnShellhead captures their relationship right at its very essence with all its deepest intensity of connection and blazing love and blinding beauty and total giving sitting right alongside all the unmet need and fear and failure to let oneself fully be seen and held and cherished. It’s some beautiful angst that carries the potential for a tiny shred of hope. Lovely.

    This is a really lovely fic. I know it may seem strange me saying that given how angsty it is but even in the middle of all that horrible misunderstanding there is such a lovely deep emotional connectedness that comes out in all the interactions amongst all the different team members. They are this solid network of interlocking friendships and couples and everyone knows each other so welll and gets how to support each other and cares deeply about doing so. But most especially I loved all the different and nuanced angles and perceptions the author gave us to see this beautiful relationship between Tony and Steve even while letting them flounder and work through the tough stuff to try and find their way back to each other.

    This is such a stunningly beautiful story. The author has taken this flippant aspect of Tony's character that shields his need for acceptance and love and laid it bare by placing him in a world that externalizes and institutionalizes all those voices saying who he is will never be okay. And this Steve oh my goodness... the round peg thrust into a square hole world who is the only one who can see and accept and love and fight for and with and help make the impossible possible... their relationship by the time sabrecmc is finished with them is breathtaking... we should all be so lucky. This is a truly beautiful novel length odyssey of finding the courage to be who you are and to let yourself be loved.

    A Cabin Pressure/Avengers crossover (who da thunk?). And yet rarely has anyone made depth so very fun at the same time. A lovely unique pairing, wonderful characterizations, and great stories that I will continue to reread and enjoy. I love how flawedamythyst has written the Matin/Tony couple vibe not to mention the Avengers family feel.. So sweet and quite improbably it all works. I also enjoy the way the series shows both Martin and Tony gaining confidence in their love millimeter by millimeter which is an oh so Martin way of doing it and the only way Tony Stark would ever do real emotional relational growth, despite the way he crashes forward with abandon in all other aspects of his life. I also appreciate how the struggle with alcoholism and recovery is treated without pulling any punches there. This writer somehow always manages in this series to blend absolutely serious emotional resonance with utterly and wonderfully silly levels of tropeiness (if that's even a word). Anyway it's a beautiful thing she's done here and so much fun to read.

    Summary

    or, The Adventure of the Red Shoes

    UK Ballet principal dancer Sherlock Holmes and assistant rugby coach John Watson met and fell in love as ambitious, optimistic teenagers. Twenty years on, they are entering midlife, facing the break-down of their bodies and the ending of their careers, and contemplating what the future holds for two middle-aged men forced to start over. With a frightening crisis unfolding at the Ballet, Sherlock must balance the demands of his career, his friendships, and his marriage with his own struggle against bitterness and discontent, while John takes a long-overdue glance from the outside, in, and stutter-steps toward making a kind of peace.

    This is a truly extraordinary read. So little is written about the "romance" of two lives knit together for the long haul. It was brave and beautiful writing that captured so many nuances of the joys and struggles therein. Also the way PoppyAlexander gave us these two rarefied career paths in so much detail and color but at the same time a back drop like any other for their life together was masterful. Adding this to my personal all time best fics list. Amazing!
