    A gorgeously written fic for me, that tackles two wishes I've always had. One, a redemption arc of some kind for Dan, but one that is believable and fits his character. I always felt so bad for the way his fate ended up. This writer took my crazy thought that maybe Dan was gay, and made it work astoundingly well. I love how the writer was careful not to downplay how difficult that would be, yet at the same time made an ending that gave me what I wanted (I won't give away who Dan loves, and how it works, but it works SO WELL, while still keeping a bittersweet realism that just fits) . Then, on top of that, the author creates a beautifully simple yet plausible story about Jo and Laurie. And... perhaps best of all, gives *great* Nan (one of my fave characters along with Jo).

    A gorgeous gift written for me, with an alternate look at what could have happened instead, late in Little Women. Beautifully written, with an in-character Jo and Laurie who are delightfully them, and a story full of nods to the original, that still feels very fresh. Ahhh and there's humor that might have been Alcott's herself, as well as peripheral characters who are completely recognizable and jump right off the page with how *them* they are (Amy!<3).

    Summary

    He watched Cap—Rogers—take in the gleaming armour on the floor, the outfit Tony had on, and the utilitarian but still fairly sophisticated interior of the medical bay. Watched as consternation gave way to creeping dread. “How long?” he asked, after a long moment. He sounded hoarse and far off. “Have we won?”
    The door slammed open and both of them jumped. Tony put a hand tentatively on Cap’s wrist. Cap looked at him, watchful, but more trusting than Tony deserved. He tried to keep his voice steady.
    “We won,” he said. “We won seventy years ago. My name’s Tony Stark. I’m Howard’s son.”
