And this time, it promises to be enormous!
...No, seriously, I do not normally rec any fanfics - not sure whether that's actually allowed here? - but if any of you nice people here are interested in a) the 'Renhardt' pairing, b) lengthy stories with more plot than porn*, c) life-like characters, each with agendas of their own or d) stories chock-full with intrigue and evil manipulations. Or, if you prefer, all of the above? ;-)
Then you need look no further than this:

Eric succeeded in kidnapping Nick during the Zombie invasion and brainwashed him. Now he sends his pet Grimm back to Portland to retrieve the key and send his dear half-brother a message. Nick's friends in Portland have to band together to get him back. Will they manage? And even if they do, will Nick ever be the same again?
* That's not to say that there'll be absolutely no porn here. Quite the contrary, in fact, but! The pron will actually fit into the plot and not the other way 'round. ;-)))
