In Lieu of the One I Love is a Wizards of Waverly Place / Hannah Montana femslash Crossover fanfic by James Doyle (his longest to date), hosted by FanFiction.net.The story begins immediately following the Wizards On Deck with Hannah Montana crossover, at which point in diverges into an Alternate Continuity. At the beginning of the story, Alex Russo has been confined to her hotel in Honolulu for the prank she pulled aboard the S.S. Tipton. There, she attracts the attention of Lilly Truscott, who initially mistakes her for Hannah's pop-star rival Mikayla. The two develop an instant rapport, and enjoy a fun evening in Lilly's suite (actually Hannah's, though Lilly's promise to Miley prohibits her from disclosing that fact). During the evening, they confess their feelings for their best friends (Lilly for Miley, and Alex for Harper) to one another. Feeling especially vulnerable (not to mention horny), the two girls end up in bed together.The remaining sixteen chapters alternate POV between Lilly and Alex (with two third-person interludes) as they face the implications of their night together on their lives and relationships.WARNING: The tropes section contains unmasked spoilers
