    Summary

    WWI AU.

    When Lizzie is shipped across the Channel to nurse wounded soldiers in France, there's nothing holding her back. Her mother is gone, her job at the BSA is gone, and every trick chips away at a little more of her dignity. In the VAD she'll have a chance to earn her place; to find the belonging she seeks- except she doesn't find it in the field hospitals of the Western Front. She finds it hidden in the shadows with a furious sergeant-major and a blustery artillery captain.

    Summary

    Even the camera crew ships it.

    (They’re professionals, of course. They’re devoted to their craft, married to their work, and determined to maintain strict separation between themselves and their ethnographic subjects. They just also happen to have a very high-stakes betting pool regarding whether Nandor and Guillermo will finally get it on.)

    A-maze-ing! God, I crack myself up but seriously, using fictional labyrinths as an intertextual labyrinth in its own right is genius, as is the labyrinth as metaphor for intimacy. Well-crafted characterisation and writing as well. Bloody lovely stuff.

    Mine! All mine! Just the most gorgeous futurefic for a beautifully and subtly delineated Mattie Ross, which I did nothing to deserve.
