  2. Summary

    This AU was inspired by the documentaries "Antarctica: A Year On Ice" and "Encounters at the End of the World" about life on McMurdo Station, which is the American research center in Antarctica on Ross Island. If you like the shenanigans of weirdos stranded with each other's idiosyncrasies in one of the most isolated places on earth, you've come across the right AU, friends.

    These fics can totally be read out of order. Enjoy!

    Completely haunting story. I loved the imagery, the surprising cruelty and tenderness, the uncertainty of both Hades and Persephone. Dark and lovely.

    This was so fragile and tense and naive and painful. What a great premise and what fantastic, living, aching writing.

    Summary

    Colors. First in sequence. Most important. Clark and Lex thirteen years after their first meeting on the riverbank.

    Written for Rhiannonhero's Cure Song Challenge. Many thanks to Alee, Isagel, Madeleine, and Sarah for beta, audiencing, and listening to my neurotic whinging. Any grievous errors or glaring flaws which remain are entirely my doing. Thanks also to Meret for providing information about color meaning right when I needed it. Lyrics for Primary in end notes. Just FYI, the story has literally nothing to do with the song :D

    I forgot how much I liked this until I did a reread of old favorites recently. The getting back together aspect is so well done.
