I voted for The Communicator - since there's affection there. The tension in Affliction/Divergence is hot, too!

Yay!! Thank you for the forum!

Voting in this one was hard -- all of the above would qualify. Another than comes to mind is Judgement. Their smiles in the rescue scene should have melted that ice cave.

But I picked Minefield. It moves from a very awkward breakfast (like nothing so much as a first date) thru some serious trust-building on the hull, and ends with the two of them looking pretty happy to be alive and together.

The the subtext and tension in Affliction/Divergence just exemplify everything that's wonderful about the pairing for me, and I love how they regard and react to each other before/during/after the awkward situation and the difficult positions it places them all in. Malcolm clearly holds betraying Archer as the worst thing about what he has done, and Archer is extraordinarily hurt (it's all too easy to add further personal/romantic hurt to that too), and Malcolm's affirmed loyalty by the end is just... I could write a thousand fics about it.

The others all had some amazing moments, though, so it was still a tough decision. Minefield, of course, would be a close second, Malcolm's awkwardness was so endearing and Archer proving his nature and dedication to (that one particular member of) his crew will always be a winner.

Well, I am working on a series of Archer/Reed fics that includes a lot of episode codas and probably missing scenes, so... maybe I can squeeze something in there. Except the betrayal is going to run so much deeper. :twisted:

Oh, I loves me some A/R angst (with a happy ending, natch, but I'll take what I can get!)

Mareel... not so much on the angst. :whistle
