I had received a message from a fellow RoyWin addict, Kimono Kay, that she had just finished reading TWICE an amazing fanfiction. When I saw the link, and the author, I knew I was in for a real treat.
That fanfiction is "The Poor, Earth Born Companion".
It is a one-shot, but a very satisfying one-shot. Just like the author's previous work, it is written almost lyrically, with a flowing form of prose. Something that almost feels too good to simply be free on the internet.
All I can say is, you need to read it. READ IT NOW.
