    Summary

    Three fics for the 2014 Leverage Secret Santa 2014.

    1) Eliot/Moreau. Eliot has a horrible Christmas on Moreau's Bond Villain-esque island.

    2) Detective Bonanno/Shelley. The developing relationship between the two. Involves gratuitous references to Boston, romance cliches, and a vespa chase.

    3) Eliot/Quinn. Post-mission sex, huddling for warmth, references to the team OT3, angst on Quinn's part.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Oh, the noncon in the Eliot/Moreau is decadent, with how Moreau takes it as a matter of course and with how Eliot approaches it with silent determination. It's not how Eliot wants the power structure to play out, but then, he's not surprised either. Perfect. So unbelievably perfect. And the backstory sets the scene elegantly. I could see so much of how those two work together and of who each man is in this time period, simply because you let me see what Eliot thinks of his boss and their situation with the Russians.

    Your characterizations on Shelley and Bonanno shine. I can vividly see Shelley's easy grin and casual sexuality alongside Bonanno's good-natured interest. Oh, and the elegant tease as it closes with Shelley meeting his wife... Lovely. I can't even put my finger on all the reasons why this matches the glimpses we saw in canon, but it does. It's Shelley and Bonanno, clear as day, along with all the reasons why they fit together.

    I love Quinn's lack of ability to relate where Eliot's family is concerned. He's considerate of it but it's simply outside of his experience. Still, he cares about Eliot, and that's all it takes for him to be a good friend. And that's the Quinn we saw in Last Dam Job -- a solid and dedicated friend. The smut was wonderful, too, in how it says so much about what Quinn wants and what Eliot's actions mean to him. And then you got me with a twist at the end -- that it isn't just that Quinn can't relate but that he's deeply lonely. Beautiful.

    Thank you so much. Everything here is just right. You have that soft, subtle touch that makes things resonate so beautifully. Thank you for letting me see three different pairings, all with their own particular dynamics. I love them all, and you absolutely succeeded in giving me that fix for emotionally resonant fic. Excellent and perfect.

    Brutal. Undeniably, heartbreakingly brutal.

    "But they aren't quite there, yet, either."

    I love how you set the scene, showing how they walk hand in hand through Hogwarts, casually Obliviating anyone who happens to see them. It's this quiet little hint that you'd never think is going to pay off. And oh, those poor house elves. I mean. And the implication... 'cause goodness knows they're used to walking in on sex, even kinky sex. And then you consider what else we find out about them...

    I love the image of the bone table chasing Ron around the flat. Lots of fun, and then... silent satisfaction as they admire their collection. So much emotional range in such a little fic. Very nice.

    It's such a vivid description, how Eliot's world gets misaligned for a moment. I love it when Parker's crazy comes out to play. Eliot never stood a chance.
