FK Fanfic: "Heart's Ease"  

I've spent many a holiday reading fanfiction; I posted this new piece to FKFic-L on US Thanksgiving Day for anyone in that position this year.  "Heart's Ease" is a tidied-up take on the commentfic I gave hearts_blood in late September; she requested Natalie, Lacroix and "human!Nick" with his first cold in eight centuries.  Thanks to wiliqueen for beta-reading!

My previous post poked fun at the usual characteristics of my fanfic, so there's irony that this light little story runs off those rails.  If I didn't know, I wouldn't guess it was me.  (Would you?)

  •   Title: "Heart's Ease" (also on AO3)
  •   Length: ~1,200 words
  •   Date: Posted to FKFic-L on November 25, 2010

This is really a very funny little story: poor Nick, so miserable with his cold. Not that I enjoy colds myself, of course. I had one this fall that was far less amusing than your story. Natalie's bedside manner is very bracing. Very bracing indeed.

Indeed, I almost say poor LaCroix, too. Almost. I'm sure it must be most frustrating for him that Nick'a ailment is so..."common".

"Really, Nicholas, couldn't you have contracted something more elegant?"

Re: *snicker*
Can't you just imagine what will happen to the first old acquaintance, post-mortality, who dares to ask Lacroix how Nick is?

:-) As she says, most of her patients are dead. :-)

Thank you for reading! And thank you for sharing your kind reflections.
