I don't remember who originally recommended this, but I want to pass it along because it's one of the best pre-war fics I've ever read. Astonishing how much amazing writing is still emerging, years after the source material! Ill With Want, by thedoubteriswise
. It's so tender and painful and has a beautifully detailed feeling for their lives in that period; there are several original characters that come to vivid life in a few brief scenes. After reading this story I realized that the writer also wrote the beautiful time on my hands could be time spent with you
, which made a big impression on me -- Wakanda fic with many flashbacks to the pre-war period.
I'm going to try to cross post this to !StuckyFanworks
