Summary: Monroe gets used as a message board once more. Except this time Nick isn’t going to take things lightly.
Why You Should Read This: This story is one that starts at the beginning of Nick & Monroe’s friendship, from their early stages when Nick was just a baby Grimm, to Nick’s breakup with Juliette and moving in with Monroe, to them becoming more than friends. And when Monroe is again attacked by someone trying to send a message that a Blutbad shouldn’t be hanging around with a Grimm, much less dating one, Nick gets angry – and decides to take action, unbeknownst to Monroe. The story builds quickly at first to get you to the “meat and potatoes” of it, and then keeps you on the edge of your seat for a thrill-ride to the end. The dialogue and actions are spot on, and characterizations are impeccable. This is one of the best Grimm fics in the fandom!
