(Recommended March 2013)
Hello! Thanks to so many of you who responded about the recommendation last week! Since I’ll be busy this weekend helping a friend move, I am posting this week’s recommendation early so I don’t forget to do it.
I have an all human story that I’d like to recommend, though you may have already read it.
All In by kjwrit

This story begins in Vegas, but what happens there–a drunken wedding between Eric and Sookie–certainly doesn’t stay there. This is a nice, long story (my favorite kind), and it contains a really good mixture of angst and comedy as Eric and Sookie try to remember their drunken wedding and also come to grips with the “sobering” news that there are reasons why they should stay married for a while. One of the angsty features of this story is an amnesia plot (beyond the forgetting of the night in Vegas), and I really liked the way it was done. All in all, the story definitely sucked me in and didn’t let me out until I finished it.
On kjwrit’s wordpress site, this work is under “works in progress,” so the author may be planning a sequel or side stories, but All In is completed. If you haven’t read it, check it out!
