Summary: The summer John is eighteen, he drives an ice cream truck. He hasn’t yet learned there are things he can’t do just because he wants to badly enough. Or, a fic about seeing the map of the world.

Why You Should Read This:
This fic is beautiful. I can’t quite pinpoint why, but part of it is the poignancy of it; oh, the feelings it gives me! This fic is truly a delight – the writing, the characterization – everything. This is set pre-canon, an AU only in that John and Rodney meet when they’re young. The author’s writing style is fantastic and I have a thing for the boys meeting when they’re young. This fic makes me ache in the best possible way, and the last line of the fic never fails to make me shiver, smile, blink back tears.

  1. This fic is no longer on her journal which has been locked and is inaccessible. I did find it on AO3 and the link is here:

    • Oh, she must have locked her LJ just recently. The last time I was there it was still open. Thank you SO MUCH for the alt link, I’ll change it right now 🙂

      • Yes it was locked like a week ago. You are very welcome. I just wouldn’t want anyone to be turned away by not being able to access the fic.

        • Yeah, it would suck if someone went to click the link and was denied access. Luckily the author posted to AO3! Thank you again for bringing this to my attention!
