A friend suggested this story to me. I’ve been told that it had a really erratic posting style. It would update 3-4 chapters in quick succession, then nothing again for months. The thing about In the Shallows that moved me the most was perhaps not just the story itself - brilliant as it was - but the accompanying AN at the end of the last chapter. I was reduced to a sobbing mess by the time I finished reading the last line. It's a beautiful and heartbreaking tale of love lost and found.
Porcia is truly amazing.
Summary: Everywhere I look, something reminds me of him. Smells, words, colours, songs. For two years I've cried over him. The best thing that's ever happened to me. The love of my life. He left because we were hurting. Because I was in the shallows.
