    Lovely Andrew post-canon fic, with slow-burning self-revelations and lovely Sandy-Andrew friendship shading into the possibility of romance.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Excellent use of language and of outsider POV. Although it's marked het, the het is in the background and I'd say this is basically a gen story.

    Fantastically funny and touching Charioteer omegaverse. For the squeamish/sensitive: no more than Renaultian levels of sexual explicitness, but some dystopian suggestions. No Laurie, if that matters (Laurie is curiously difficult to A/B/O).
