Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

It evolves slowly, the relationship between Robin and Amita.

At first it's just friendly, spending the odd double date together, but once they're both married to Eppes men their bond begins to strengthen. Their children will be blood cousins, all Eppes in Alan's line, though Robin and Amita both keep their maiden names for their careers.

It's mostly about the children to start, sharing pictures of their offspring and trading advice on colicky babies and work/life balance, then it becomes more expansive. They discuss their marital challenges, career choices and even their private dreams and worries.

After a decade they've grown so close they're the first one the other calls when they have good news and bad. Amita sobs to Robin about her miscarriage. Robin admits to marital counseling.

Amita's kids spend a summer at Robin's parents' house in Cape Cod. Robin's kids beg for Amita's kheer recipe for dessert. Amita's daughter proclaims she's going to be a lawyer like Aunt Robin. Robin's son asks for a telescope after seeing the stars through Amita's astrophysics eyes via the Cal Sci observatory.

They are married to brothers, but after a decade of love and affection it feels more like they're sisters.
