Alien Resurrection: Take Two...............NOTE: This fic can be read with no prior knowledge of the Alien films. It will fill you in.
Ripley awakens to find herself inalterably changed, tainted by the creatures that ruined her life. Forced to live as a caged beast, and a kept woman, Ripley spends her long hours waiting anxiously for the moment when her odd allies—the Aliens—will break the observation glass and set her free. But while she's alone, Ripley is left without a future to fight for--she needs another dauntless, sharp-witted woman to lean on; someone to share her life with.
Short story about loss and mourning. A woman grieves the loss of her wife, and is comforted by Death. Part wish fulfillment, part venting, part therapy, part emotional prophylaxis.
