I always talk about how I want gallavich to have a happy ending, but I’m a sucker for pain and infatuated with angst, so I often don’t let myself read fics that go beyond the initial “getting back together after all angsty shit.”
I always want domestic fluff for Ian and Mickey, I’ve always wanted them to be happy and content and achieving things together, but based on their tumultuous relationship, their rocky childhoods, and chaotic siblings, fics haven’t been able to pull off their dynamic to my satisfaction.
This fic, though, changes a lot of shit. I only know one other “domestic bliss” fic that really gave me those warm feelings, in which their relationship didn’t feel off character or plain or strained in terms of pacing and writing.
It’s how the affection is portrayed that really gets me. The easy smiles, the banter, the teasing sex, just Ian and Mickey being best friends and loving each other. The sweet family bond they created with Svetlana and Yevgeny and the new baby Nadia. Their strange family dynamic. Support. Helping each other through the other’s demons. Ian owning up to his mistakes. Mickey learning new ways to cope with traumas contracted from prison.
Everything. This fic is everything.
