    Summary

    It's an AU based on the Sandra Bullock/Ryan Reynolds movie, 'The Proposal'! So. There's that.

    If you haven't seen it then the premise is: bossy lady is a bit foreign, didn't sort out her visa, is now being booted by INS. Unless she can come up with a way to get issued a new and different type of visa, like say a fiancée or spouse type one.

    Now just who could save Peggy's bacon in such a situation? Step forward one Ms Angie Martinelli. Only trouble is that INS want immediate proof of their serious relationship, and Angie is heading off to a huge family event. Ever the pal, she insists that Peggy can tag along. Family drama, wedding nonsense, and ridiculous shenanigans ensue.

    Summary

    Ann hovered beside her, quaking like a leaf in a sharp breeze. Like the fragile foliage, she might break to winter's chill, and then all of the harsh cold and unforgiving white of snow would cave in upon her. What Anne would not give to turn and clasp her wounds, yet her own were so deep.

     

     


    (The death of Aunt Anne brings the Ann(e)s tumultuous yet happy marriage to a sudden turning point. Where Anne was once fearful of how her wife would ultimately take the passing of their most beloved relative, she is now suddenly faced with the possibility of whether their relationship will ever recover at all.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Brilliant writing. The raw emotion in each chapter (and particularly the scene where Anne visits the grave alone) jumps out.
    The author also skilfully balances/attributes the cause of the angst equally between Anne and Ann (a rare skill not often seen in fanfics).

    Summary

    "When she wakes up to moonlight streaming in through the open curtains and her wife’s arm slung loosely over her stomach, she pushes away the pain in her head (and the roughness in her throat and the ache all over) and thinks instead about how happy she is."

    Anne has Strong Opinions about sickness.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Excellent characterisation and dialogue. The angst written is also realistic and true to each character's flaws/fears.
