Heartwarming / With Strings Attached

Go To

  • 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.


How well does it match the trope?
