This is coming from my current reading - I am very much loving the work of owlet over on AO3. Reading This You Protect - the aspect of this author's work that really draws me in is the voice - I struggle so much with finding the right voice for some characters and here this author has it Nailed. Down. Perfectly. Everything - the tempo, the vocabulary, the humor and observations - everything fits just perfectly inside this character's head. Also, I really appreciate a story that makes me accidentally giggle out loud. 

From this story: 

"Cat Eleanor stands up on her hind legs, balancing her front paws on his knees, and says hello in cat. Esther smiles.

“She wants you to pick her up.”

REFUSE

Higher likelihood of claw holes from picking up or not picking up.

DANGER

Eleanor makes holes in his kneecaps. He picks her up and drapes her on his shoulder, where she purrs into his neck and presses her cold, wet nose against his ear. Barnes learns that the area around his ear is extremely ticklish.

The mission imperative is a sound in the back of his mind a little like “eeeeeee.”"
