Story Summary: Sarah is a secretary at Orion, a shady company previously owned by Wilson Fisk. When Daredevil begins investigating Orion, Sarah accidentally discovers his true identity, and he’s not pleased. Despite her best efforts to avoid him after figuring out who he is, she quickly finds herself on the receiving end of a Daredevil interrogation in a dark alley. Post S1, Eventual Matt/OC.
gammathetaalpha’s Thoughts: In this story by Ashevillain, we meet world-weary Sarah, who is working at Orion as a secretary in order to pay her father’s debts. When she accidentally figures out Daredevil’s identity, she is forced into more peril than she could ever imagine, but a possible way out of the bleak future garunteed at Orion.
This story is on my top five list of favourite fanfictions. The reason for this is the author’s incredible OC, Sara. She is such a well-rounded, realistic character, that you can’t help but be pulled into her world.
The author also adds dimension to Matt’s character, all while staying true to the image already created by Marvel. Watching the two interact pulls you to the edge of your seat, as both characters feel as if they are real people really in the Marvel universe.
As with all well-written slowburn romances, you can’t help but anticipate the moment when the characters realize that despite all their differences, fights, and trials, that being without the other would be like losing oxygen. I promise you, that moment is well worth the lengthy wait that comes before it.
I haven’t even started on the action-filled plot, the firm grasp on basic writing mechanics, and the vivid imagery provided. Just for the characters alone, I would give this story a ten out of ten.
