Life on Mars (Sam Outsider)
This fic, you guys. THIS FIC.

When Moving Through Kashmir, by lacidiana, Life on Mars, Gen, Dark, 4304 words.
Warning: Character death.
Summary: Sam's world collapses around them.

It will leave you breathless, turn your heart inside-out. It will gut you. But it will have been well worth it.


Excerpt: It dawns on Gene as he stares out the windshield, wipers moving back and forth against the ash. There should be bodies -- no, there should be living -- proper living, like children on streets and beggars on sidewalks, or bent military bastards running about like little Hitlers. There should be martial law and painted symbols; fights and theft and ration lines; despair and hope in unequal measures. There should be people.



It is just: this. The portrayal of these characters is perfection, and the idea extraordinarily plausible, and there's an eerie lyricism that works too well. It is beautiful.

Oh my gosh! I just stumbled across this and I wanted to take a moment to say thank you so much. Having enjoyed so many of your fics and knowing how involved you are in the fandom, your words mean the world to me and I'm honored that you thought my fic was worth reccing. I've devoured so much amazing fic from you guys that I'm elated I can finally give back, and... you and everyone else in this little fandom have made me feel so welcome and I am overwhelmed. ;; ♥

I have been, actually! Much, much more than I usually do, which is probably a testament to the amazing magical power of this damn series. I hope I'll be able to share more soon, and thanks so much again. ♥♥♥
