I have no idea whether this is #ownvoices or not (I mention this because race is a big issue in it.)

This is a fic about Iris and Barry when they were teens, so before all the metahumans and super-powers started to infiltrate their lives.

I think this fic handles racial issues well - but if I'm wrong, please let me know!
Warning: the major theme of this fic is racism.
So this week's fic is:
