I wanted to let you all know about the story that was written for me in this year's yuletide challenge:
Title: The Beginning of Education
Summary: Edison tells a story. Edifying lessons are found.
It's a story about one of Edison's earliest journalistic assignments, and the author (still unknown until tomorrow! *g*) does a great job getting the characters down, especially Edison and Max. I absolutely believe Edison would act (and react) the way he does here. The little details are also fabulous -- things like body language and background sights and sounds help the reader get immersed in the story, and I think they're really well done.
So if you're looking for Max fanfic, go check it out!
(I can't believe I still haven't gotten off my ass and made a Max icon...)
