My oh-so-humble thoughts
This is one of the longest overdue spotlights like…ever. I intended to do this waaaaaaaaay back in March 2013 when she did her author spotlight. And somehow it never got done.

This story is my all time favorite fanfic. Hands down. And I kinda feel bad saying that since there are so many great ones out there…but it is. Angela was a genius and I still miss her brilliant mind. :(

But back to happy and the story. This is crime drama meets thriller meets…quickie romance. All wrapped up in a brilliantly put together sarcastic package. It’s only 28 chapters so it’s not a HUGE time investment. I usually get through it in about 2-3 days reading sporadically. And yes I said usually. I read this story about every other month or so. Seriously. It’s saved on my phone and everything.

I don’t save many stories. And I usually don’t reread stories-maybe I’ll read a story twice, especially if I’m refreshing my memory for a spotlight or something. But nothing like I’ve read this one.

And every single time it gets me. The same emotions smack me upside the head and I end up feeling the exact same way I felt the first time I read it.

There is a companion piece (Alcide in Wonderland), which I actually haven’t read yet. But I think that’s going on my list now. It took me a long time to be able to read S&S after Angela’s passing and now every single time I am so grateful for her amazing mind. So I’m going to delve into Alcide’s story. There is also a sequel, but it’s unfinished.

It’s worth a read-anything Angela ever wrote is. So this would be when you scurry on over to her site and suck it up like the internet will die tomorrow. ….Okay that was a horrible way to put that but you know what I mean. :)
