Crossing the Lines

A well done little fic with artwork included.

Crossing the Lines by rebelcat

He began to watch his partner closely. And what he quickly discovered was that Doyle sketched more frequently than he’d realized. He sketched during meetings and breaks, on napkins and in the corners of books. His pictures were always tiny, sometimes barely more than few lines, and they always ended up in the bin.
Bodie began discreetly rescuing them, tossing them in his desk at the end of the day, with the sketch Doyle had made of his mug. There was a boot crossed over a knee, a bit of chair with the faintest hint of a person sitting in it, a shoulder holster pulled tight across a back... And lots of hands, all of which Bodie suspected belonged to him.

I'm just collecting some 'to print and read'stories for the next week.
I've read this one, but I can't remember anymore.

Rebelcat's Mere Anarchy is on my top five list.

Rebelcat's Mere Anarchy is on my top five list.
It's one of my top favourites, too, although I haven't made a top five list yet. What are your other four?

Thanks! And I was expecting 4 fics, full of admiration for you to be able to narrow your choices down. ;-)
There are some I haven't read. Thanks!

Inspired by your list I just thought up two lists of fics I couldn't do without. Of course there are a lot of writers I adore and still had to skip due to the shortness of the lists.

top five short:
Mere Anarchy by Rebelcat
A Falling Off by Callisto
Love in a Cold Country by Jojo
The Assassin's Daughter by Lacey McBain
Cards/Cards on the table by Georgina Kirrin

top five long/novels:
Suitable Gravity by DVS
Absolution by Angelfish
Redemption by Kate McLean
Strange Days Indeed by HG
The Third Friday of October by Dana Austin Marsh

Another way to extend the list... Make two of it! :-)

Absolution I haven't yet read (hangs head in shame...)
And Strange days I don't like - but the rest I could absolutely agree with!

As short and long fics are two very different animals (looked this up in dict.cc), IMO, I had to split the list. All my long favs except Suitable Gravity are very angsty stories (esp. Absolution fyi), most of my short favs are more comfortable to read.
