Summary:Beverly Crusher wasn’t an empath, but she didn’t need to be told that Deanna needed to have her hair released from its pins, needed to be gently undressed, needed to be quietly held. Deanna was so much smaller than Bev that she was almost always little spoon, and she lay for a long, silent stretch with Beverly’s long frame curled around her. Deanna felt herself ease into her, relaxing, healing.
“I love you,” she sighed after a long while.
“I know.”

Review: This is just such a happy, fluffy good feel fic that is incredibly well written and that hits every happy bone in my body. The plot unfolds quietly and without any big crisis and still there is profound growth and realization along the way. And that final starog just rounds it off as a perfect happy fic that I can get back to whenever I want to feel good.

I love the characterization and the subdued background buzzle of normal Enterprise life that adds so much detail and depth to this little tail.
