Rec: U Turn by Cody Nelson


Title: U Turn
Author: Cody Nelson
Canon: Angel
Pairing: Angel/Lindsey McDonald
Rating: Explicit [NC-17]
Word Count: 33,904
Summary: On his way out of Los Angeles, Lindsey has an encounter with Angel that leads to his return to Angel Investigations. Spoilers through “Dead End.”

Recommendation: This has got to be my favorite Langel story full stop. It’s for a variety of reasons but one of the things that stands out for me is Lindsey lawyering for good. He’s no Thurgood Marshall or Nelson and Murdock but it’s nice to see him using his other skills to benefit the side of the angels. Another thing I love is Lindsey developing relationships with Angel’s team: friends with Cordelia, companionable ribbing with Gunn and a tentative truce with Wesley. Finally the simmering heat between Lindsay and Angel is something not to be missed.
