QUOTE:
Our conversation is nothing more than a few muttered words and sentences, while we spend the rest of our time staring out the window imagining what could've been more than just a few lives ended.

What wasn't.

And let's be glad it wasn't. Let's be glad we saved who we could, because those lives that we saved weren't just passengers. They were people. We saved people.

WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
On Saturday, I've watched “Sully” for the first time. An excellent movie, and of course I had my slash goggles on while watching. I couldn't help imagining how it would be if they were more than just colleagues. I mean, both actors played these characters so damn well. They were communicating with all these long, meaningful glances. There definitely was a deep connection between them, a mutual respect, and caring for each other. A great deal of chemistry so to speak. They went through an impossible situation together and not only did they manage to survive they also saved 155 lives. And now no one believes them that what they did was really the only possible solution. It is literally them against the world. They only have each other to lean on.

After watching the movie, I immediately checked AO3 for any fic in this fandom. Alas, there only was this tiny little 200-something words ficlet… BUT it is soooo good. Seriously! It's told from Sully's POV, taking place during one of the many nights he and Skiles stayed at the hotel. It depicts the worries and fears they both have. The feelings of uncertainty they share. It's really well-written with beautiful characterizations. Depending on how you want to look at it, you could read it as a gen (friendship) fic or a slash fic. :) Now, I long for more fics in this fandom. I'm not usually a big real people slasher, but Tom Hanks and Aaron Eckhart's portrayal of Sully and Skiles in the movie really got to me and now I'm left wanting to read more about these two characters.
