    Summary

    It was the worst day of his life, the kind of day every parent fears. Jughead Jones could only watch in horror as his sister, Jellybean, wrestled with a sickness that he couldn’t control. While dealing with the prognosis, Jughead couldn’t ignore the ray of hope keeping him grounded through the sadness in the form of Pediatric Oncology nurse Betty Cooper. Can he learn to love while living in a nightmare? Can she learn to put aside her insecurities and conflicting feelings to fall for the father figure of her patient?

    Warning: lots of angst and descriptive smut ahead.

    UPDATE: A coda has been added, titled "Finding Strength In You" for anyone interested in the events after the final chapter :)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I was head over heels in love with this story by the second paragraph. It somehow took me all the way until the kissing scene to realize that gyzym was the author. I clicked onto the link for the artwork and i - alone in my apartment - said 'Oh my FUCKING GOD' out loud to my dog. I've been reading Kat's fiction since at least 2011ish and her work is unparallelled. Each piece is such a gift. This story especially touched me. I relate so strongly to this characterization of Harry, and am so very endeared to this version of Draco. Of course the true hero of the tale is Tomato, but that should go without saying.

    Summary

    For years, Jughead's life has been about Jellybean. Now that she's off to college, he can start picking up where he'd left off.

    Two things might complicate this a bit: being named best man in his childhood friend's wedding, and the bride's maid of honour.

    Summary

    Most days, Betty Cooper rose before the sun, dressing herself for farm work and getting breakfast ready for her two farm hands, Farmer John and Kevin. ...

    This farm life was a dream come true. She reminded herself often that this was what she always wanted, and it was the truth. Only thing was that she never thought she’d be alone doing it. She had always thought she’s have someone by her side.

    ...

    He had not expected Betty Cooper to look the way she did. When he booked this Bed & Breakfast as his writing getaway, he had been told that it was a quiet, out of the way place, with an accommodating owner/hostess who cooked divine spreads, offered great conversation, and made her guests feel right at home.

    He had been expecting a more matronly figure, gray haired perhaps, stately, maybe, the way those baby boomer, Hampton-living, ladies carried themselves. She had, after all, been described by his editor as a cross between Martha Stewart, Ina Garten, and Ree Drummond of Pioneer Woman fame. None of those ladies were leggy, in their twenties, smelled like sweet lilacs, and was gorgeous as hell. And none of them had that long blonde hair...
