Story: Under Grace

[Rating T13][Hurt/Comfort][Romance][Drama][AU]

What would you do if you saw a down-on-his-luck Nick Wilde huddled up in some alleyway, emotionally spent and on the verge of death? Like Judy, I think we’d all want to lend a helping hand. That’s what this story is all about, taking us on a captivating, soulful journey of how a chance encounter can forever change the lives of two mammals in the city of Zootopia. There’s many affecting scenes that draw these two closer together, and the core of the story – Nick and Judy’s deepening relationship – resonates with strong fervency. ~DrummerMax64

Description :
Nick Wilde had given his all to achieve his dreams – to be more than just some fox. But when the cold indifference of reality came crashing down it left him broken and lost, waiting for the end. Salvation comes in many forms, but Nick never expected to find it from a wide-eyed bunny-cop; Judy Hopps.

  1. This story is such a dilemma for me. It's a rather well-written, touching story that shows off good characterization of both Judy and Nick. The collaboration of authors have all written other stories that I found entertaining. So, I'd love to fervently recommend this story, except for the update schedule. Patchy and intermittent would be kind and unfortunately this keeps robbing the story of its narrative momentum. Given that its last update is approaching 5 months ago, I can only cautiously recommend this tale. Know that it's good but you'll probably also be doing a lot of re-reading each time a new update comes out to refresh yourself on the story.
