Story Status: Complete.
Shannon's Thoughts: Yes, I've wandered into a new fandom--the Law & Order fandom. I was surprised to see that there really isn't that much fanfic about this show. There are still some gems, though.
"The Helper" is about Jack McCoy, and his nephew, Jay O'Hara. Jack is attacked one night, and is put in a coma. When he comes out of the coma, his family--particularly Jay--help him to get back to his old self.
This is a beautifully-written story. The amount of research the author put into it had to have been tremendous. She also does a wonderful job in developing her characters, and in developing the very close, special relationship between Jack and Jay. I was close to tears in some places.
Even if you aren't a fan of Law & Order, you should read this story--it is absolutely magnificent.
Final judgment: 10/10.
