Review
I've always had a major jones for homeless fics, probably because by their very nature they satisfy all of my biggest kinks: first time, h/c, trust issues.  Not to mention the fact that they're usually all pretty long (you can't go from homeless to perfect happiness in a thousand words or less).

Harbor of My Heart is not just a homeless fic, it's a *brilliant* homeless fic.  Jim's on the run from the military and, being the protector Sentinel he is, he's found his own little tribe to take care of on the streets.  Blair is a cop, having stumbled into the profession after Naomi was murdered by a serial killer.  They meet during the course of an arson investigation and it's just as wonderful as you would expect (trust issues!  government conspiracy!  sex!)  Even the kids (usually a huge squick for me) are well done, cute but heartbreakingly mature from struggling to survive while living on the streets.  In fact, I liked them so much that when Romslinger posted her homeless!Blair fic a few months ago, I was disappointed by the fact that there wasn't a kid in sight.  Now *that* is a recommendation.

I've been wanting to try some Sentinel fic so I just marked this and hopefully if I have time will read it later today. I'll be watching to see what other Sentinel stories you rec. I was wondering if you might add some Eureka recs to your list. I like the show and your writing so I know you would pick some good stories to try.

Unfortunately I don't watch Eureka or read Eureka fanfic, so it's hard for me to offer any recs for it. However, if I do start watching/reading for the show, I'll be sure to add it to the list.

I just started downloading a whole mess of Sentinel fics for re-reading/possible reccing. Also? I've figured out the premise for my next original fic. And! I've uploaded the latest chapter of Pull. It's been a very good day:)

Seriously I'm not normally into the Sentinel, but I've only read a quarter of this and I already like it so much I had to write to tell you!!! Seems we really do have the same taste in fics. Can't wait to see what else you rec.

I'm a very, very picky reader, but at least I'm consistent -- the biggest variation you're going to see in my recs is in length and even then any story I recommend is going to be on the longer side of short:)

Glad you're enjoying the recs!

Oh, I just read this and I absolutely loved it until near the end where it got a bit too hurried imo - but perhaps I just didn't want it to end. Btw, thanks for opening this rec comm! I love epics and hope to find some I don't know about.

I have to admit that the majority of epics end too fast, IMO, and I can never tell if it's a sign the author just wanted the story over, or if it's simply an indication that I wanted more to read. I guess it's better for them to end too soon, then to go on so long that I wish it was over:)

Glad you're enjoying the community!
