Heartwarming: With Strings Attached

  • The Beatles fanfic With Strings Attached is a breathtaking story that causes all sorts of emotional reactions in me. The premise is bizarre: years after their break-up, the four are transported together into a spectacular fantasy world, where they eventually obtain great powers. As weird as that may sound, the author totally pulls it off, due to a combination of good writing, fascinating plotting, a wonderfully detailed world, and how she always displays integrity when writing about these men and dealing with their complex relationships with each other. The scene where John comforts a severely depressed Paul particularly gives me a warm fuzzy feeling:
    Shh, shh, it's all right, Macca, I'm here now, I'll never leave you again... I love you, man.
  • And when the Hunter pours his heart and soul out to Paul as the completion of his Heel-Face Turn.
  • At the end, when Ringo gets up and hugs Shag and Varx as a thank-you for giving him the chance to experience his magic, and when the four hug one another just prior to being sent back home.
