Author's Summary: "It's not that she wants him to leave, not exactly. It's just that she's afraid he'll stay." Post-School Reunion Sarah Jane/Harry.
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane/Harry
Recced because: It's broken Sarah/Harry in a way that I can believe happened. The characterisation is spot on and Sarah describes Harry perfectly in it. You can feel the emotions of the two of them and what they feel about each other without it having to be explained.
He can't find his sock and she thinks it serves brilliantly to illustrate why she left him the first and second times they tried to have a relationship, and why she never let him push for a third attempt. He can't find one of his socks and if he were anyone else they would laugh about it and he'd tuck bare feet into loafers.
He's Harry, though, and a missing sock can quickly turn into a crisis. He's too particular about things like dress to be seen in public without it, and so he won't leave until it's found. She thinks perhaps she should have let Juno Baker teach her to knit after all, she could simply whip up a brand new one and send him on his way.
