Why this must be read: A sexual relationship between the military commander and his male 2IC would be against the regs in a bunch of ways, and just plain difficult to navigate. So it's hard to write fic that deals with that balance, of John and Evan being hot for each other, and at the same time being the responsible, too-practical guys we see in canon. The author manages it by having the sex thing begin before the coworker thing, and if the sex keeps going after that, well. John was never *that* fond of the rules. Events run their own lovely, logical line in this story, keeping the sex reasonable and the guys guy-y, while still managing to be unexpectedly romantic.
