Review:
When Simon inexplicably (and very uncharacteristically) attacks Blair at the station, they find that he's been drugged, probably by another cop (since they were the only ones with access to Simon's office). With Blair recovering from a broken jaw, Simon under administrative leave, and growing resentment from the other officers as IA investigates, something is going to blow.

First, I should note that there is a sequel to this fic. I'm not going to rec it (the plot features a stereotypically Evil Homosexual Bad Guy and has attempted rape, both of which make me even more uncomfortable in gen or het fic than they do in slash), but if you want to give it a try you can find the story (Scales of Justice) on LKY's site.

That said, Attribute of the Strong is a phenomenal casefile fic blended with a great hurt/comfort story. The mystery behind Simon's attacker is a good one, with lots of layers and a satisfying ending. As for the hurt/comfort part, well... let's just say that Jim is bossy (gasp!) and Blair is a *terrible* patient (*is stunned*).

Best of all, Rhonda proves herself to be the most awesome person in Major Crimes. Squee!

In short: if you like a solid casefile and/or are a fan of hurt/comfort fic without woobiness, this is the fic for you.
