So for the past few months -- come to think of it, it's been the greater part of a year -- my very good friend [ profile] jlh has been working on a story called "A Dream That Could Not Last." In her words, it's a "romantic comedy set in 1939 London, when everyone knew war was on the horizon but no one was sure when or how it would arrive — which made love of all kinds that much more important. Follow a year in the life of three groups of (mostly) Americans: pilots who joined the RAF, singers and dancers in a swing music revue, and reporters for BBC Radio."

It's also an American Idol RPF fic, which I know most of you don't generally pay much attention to. BUT! I will say that as someone who has only recently started watching Idol and isn't in the fandom for it AT ALL, I've been betaing this fic pretty intensely for most of the time she's been writing it, and it's really really good. Good in a way that goes beyond RPF and is just genuinely interesting and engaging and meticulously researched through and through.

So if you're at all intrigued by a wartime romance that just happens to be populated with fictionalized versions of real people, then I highly recommend giving this fic a try. <3
