There was a boy on the front porch.

You should check it out if you enjoyed Sara and Cid's uneasy and powerful mother-son relationship in the film!

I commented:
Thank you for the amazing Yuletide present!

One more minute, she thought, inhaling, sharp… One minute longer than last time.

Argh, Cid learning patience and self-mastery, poor little boy. I loved the moment of desperate humour too:

“That’s not the pot that mommy used for soup,” he told her.

“I love pots,” she said…

You've captured a lot in this story: Sara's moves away from farming and back, away from motherhood and back. The short high-impact scenes are really effective in this fandom: very evocative of the mood of the film, and of Sara's characterisation in it. Thank you again! It's a beautiful story.

I somehow have even less time than last year, but I've grabbed a bunch of Yuletide fics in as fandoms I recognise, stuffed them on my Kindle, and hope to have read a decent chunk before reveals. Hope.
