Review:
Sarah and Adam are still alive and the town of Four Corners is currently being guarded by six lawmen when a stranger saves Chris's family from gunmen. Even as Sarah and Nathan patch Vin up (entirely against his will), the question remains: who is this mysterious Vin and why is he working so hard to make sure to keep his past hidden?

I love hurt/comfort stories that are more comfort than hurt (though, if you ask Vin, the comforting is a hell of a lot more irritating than the hurting) and I'm also a huge sucker for AU origin stories. This story satisfies on both counts, with Vin healing (slowly, since he keeps ripping out his damn stitches) and the Not To Shabby Six turn into the Magnificent Seven.

The characterization is where this story really shines, especially with Sarah and Vin and, most significantly, Sarah *and* Vin. The dialogue between the two of them sparkles, and every scene referencing the two of them pops. The rest of the crew is excellent as well, with everyone acting in character, even though that inherently prevents the story from being all sunshine and roses.

If you're a fan of strong female characters and/or Vin, this is definitely a fic for you.
