    Summary

    In the city of angels there are more devils on each street corner than there are stars in the sky, and the people who best understand the darkest thoughts of a deputy police chief are an internal affairs captain and a gang boss.

    (an exercise in cityscapes, the glorious noir pastiche of s7, and how fritz howard can fuck off)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    But Brenda’s never been comfortable with secrets, not if they’re someone else’s. She’s been trained to find those secrets, to burrow down into the blackest parts of people’s hearts and reveal what makes them work.

    Look at that summary and tell me this fic and I weren't made for each other.

    So this is it? I sold my soul for this?
    Washed my hands of that for this?
    I miss my mom and dad for this?

    You know when you know a vid has to exist, and you hold your breath and you look for it, and it's better than what you could have imagined? That's this Battlestar Galactica vid to "Some Nights" by Fun.

    While I was having some serious sympathy for Baltar early on, it doesn't really hit its stride until a bit later, at stops my bones from wondering just who I am. After that, it is feelings of the crying kind straight on until the end.

    “How hard would Bill frak you?” Helena asks, grinding her fingers into Laura to the knuckle.

    My brain is broken.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Brenda laughs without humour. “Do, Sharon? What is there to do? You and I have exhausted three ridiculous plans in the last two months tryin' to do somethin' about it, and where's that got us besides endlessly frustrated and trapped in a closet?”

    Sharon blanches. “I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that that was not intended as a joke about sexual uncertainty.”

    The playful tone and snappy dialogue make this fic an absolute joy to read from start to finish. It blew me away the first time I read it... and the second time, too.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    And the thought of Brenda only makes her pulse go quicker. Brenda, who she can't have, but judging by the flicker of desire in his eyes, she could probably have him. And he's been inside Brenda, so he's the next best thing, really.

    Oh, come on. Like I wouldn't be all over angry desk sex with this particular version of Sharon.
