    Shipping Fics 
Auld Lang Syne by Rinaway
  • Recommended by Marcus S Lazarus
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Dexter/Debra
  • Synopsis: "My sister, the stalwart cop and overwhelmingly good person, entered that shipping container with the intent of saving me, and ended up doing so much more. A few weeks ago, she told me she was in love with me; it was only in that dark, narrow passageway that I really even began to process what that really meant." My version of Season 8. Debster-centric.
