    Summary

    AU where everything is the same, except the living have daemons.

    (I don't know where (if anywhere) I'm going with this, I might attempt some vignettes around early S1 missions. For now here's a quick experimental piece.)

    Summary

    Archie has some urgent news for Chris. A conversation before the events of S3-M16, which manages to contain no spoilers about anything..!

    “I didn’t say I don’t trust them.”

    “You were thinking it, very very loudly. It is written all over your face. Not with words, of course, because then they would have figured you out weeks ago. Can something be written without using words?"

    Summary

    A self-contained story arc covering the time after S1-17 but before S1-19.

    A mysterious untouched electronics cache, a missing Runner, a well-tended graveyard, a pair of strange new survivors...

    ... and Eight is giving cooking lessons, Runner Five just bludgeoned a moving tent full of zombies, Six starts a badly-advised game of Cheat, Three has been running laps for the last two hours, Four got Ten a box of click-counters and now he's trying to give them to everyone, and Jack and Eugene keep blocking the door to the rec room with a giant sign that says "ON AIR".

    Summary

    Just another grocery/pharma run... Nothing significant here, I just really like spending time with Four and Ten.

    “So many experiments, so little time,” says Ten wistfully. “Please don’t look at me like that, Jody, it’s all right, I’m not going to try anything this time. We’re all starting to tire.”

    “This time,” repeats Jody, with emphasis. “Well that’s just great.”

    “Yes, Ten, this is not the thyme. Get it? Thyme!”

    Summary

    based of [http://zalia.tumblr.com/post/86858404839/the-adventures-of-sam-chow-international-pup-of] which is among the cutest fics I've ever come across. Apparently my rampant furry-ism is kicking up a storm, I've wanted to write dog!runner five for quite a while now, and this spoke to me.
    It's pretty much a rewrite of a few episodes under the premise of both Five and Sam being genetically altered dogs, a lot of exposition is in the notes.

    Summary

    Minor spoilers for S1-M18 / M20. I fudged the timing slightly to let them carry on talking, they were on a roll.

    A bottle of whiskey has made its way to the rec room: a rather drunk Runner Ten waxes philosophical with Runner Four, while Five, Six, Twelve and Three play Twister, but party games are no match for ethics, and soon Runner Six has bigger fish to fry.

    Very inspired by the early S2 discussion on rofflenet, thanks guys. <3

    “All I’m saying,” continues Ten after a pause, with an embarrassed half-laugh, “er, is that we have a duty to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be. And… and it’s not hard, it’s just… sometimes… we lose sight of why it matters.”

    Runner Six glances up at Five again. “But what if… what if we have to do a bad thing, an… unvirtuous, is that a word? Trick someone or lie to someone… in order to do good, or… so that we don’t die?”

    Summary

    "Your body's too ragged / To cover your bones."

    Post-mission fic. I needed closure. Edited 17th Nov 2018 and it still made me cry.

    Major spoilers for S1 M19, and micro-spoilers for first episode of The Way Of All Flesh (no plot, just reference to the shenanigans from the opening minutes).

    Summary

    All her life, Five has been able to interact with ghosts. Everyday is a struggle to keep her ability a secret from both the living and the dead. Alice knew Five could see her the moment their eyes met. Now, she won't let Five rest until she tells Sam all the things she left unsaid.

    Begins after season 1, mission 19 "An Unimportant Mission," but before mission 20 "Listen In." The story will have spoilers for all of season 2 and the C25K story line as well.

    This is also an illustrated fic and will look best on your browser!
