    This is tagged as both gen and m/m, which is exactly how I would have tagged it; the vid has that ambiguity, which I like. What I said to the creator:

    This is very nicely done. I like how you went beyond the obvious clips and melded the images so well with the lyrics.

    What I wrote to the vid creator:

    I'm so glad I found your AO3 account, because I've been watching this vid over and over and over since I first stumbled across it. I love everything about it: the mix of old and new, the way you used the "light" concept, the excellent melding of music and images, and the selection of clips. (I didn't realize till I saw your vid how many times Kirk and Spock got into each other's space.) The final part of the vid is simply awesome editing.

    If you haven't read Patricia A. McKillip's Riddle-master trilogy yet, go read it. The read this beautiful (though spoilerish) postlude.

    What I wrote to the author:

    "I often feel hesitant to read fanfic about novels I like, and this has been my favorite fantasy novel for 37 years. I worry that the fic won't do justice to the canon.

    "I needn't have worried in this case. You've captured McKillip's voice so beautifully that your story actually made clear to me for the first time some of the lyrical elements she used to enchant her readers. Thank you. And thank you for giving me the opportunity to spend a little more time with two of my favorite characters."

    Summary

    “Um,” Alex tried to regain his power of speech. “Are you Hilary?”

     

    “Dr Aquila, I presume,” the young man answered, and leant back against the doorframe, arms folded, regarding Alex appraisingly. “So you do exist after all. I was starting to fear the personnel department was in the grip of a delusion and our rota a tissue of deceit.”

     

     

    After an incident, Dr Alex Aquila is relocated to an obscure ward in a tiny hospital in the north of England. There are too many patients, too much paperwork and his SHO Hilary is impossible to work with. But at least surgical trainee Connor has shown him some friendliness. With a life to rebuild, and many challenges ahead, can Alex figure out who he is and what he really needs?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Fluff and angst" this is correctly tagged. No knowledge of the canon is needed, but the story makes a successful AU transfer from "frontier Roman soldiers" to "frontier British doctors." I'm recommending this story for the medical details and for Hilary's dialogue, which is memorable.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A magnificent novel in the style of the original canon, with a lovely balance of dialogue, exposition, description, and action. I'm not qualified to assess how accurate the historical details are, but the tale has the flavor of novels I've read which were written during or immediately after World War II. Except for the final line - whose full impact can only be appreciated by readers who know what's coming next - the novel can be read without knowledge of the canon. I wish that Naraht would write long stories more frequently, because the results are always excellent.

    If you happen to have read another book about Edward Bear, you may remember that he lived with his friends in a wood called the Hundred Acre Wood. It was a small wood, and small things happened, the kind of things that happen to bears in places where even if elevenses are late there is always a little something for tea.

    This isn't that story.

    The characters from the Hundred Acre Woods are plunged into the real world. This is darkfic at its darkest, yet the odd thing was, I found the story even more heartwarming than the canon, because it reminded me that, no matter how bad things get, there is still great goodness in this world.
