Read "Dealing with Departure" by Dialecticdreamer

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted "Dealing with Departure" (Part 1, Part 2) about Pips leaving for his next job.  It is beautiful and wrenching.  He's right at that stage where he's starting to think about settling down, but not quite ready yet, so everything feels weird and confusing.  It really is a lot like a romance -- minus the kissy bits and the horrible unhealthy parts where people and clingy and have ridiculous misunderstandings.  They just need time for Pips to figure out his path.  I love this so much more than conventional story arcs.
