Prompt: Survive and save

Notes: This is one of the best stories by this author ever. It's dark and painful and still completely beautiful. It's not easy to have your character die, let alone keeping it in character and feel right.
Warning: Character death

Notes: A reaction to salvagestime's character death ficlet, it's poetic and twisted and an absolutely perfect reaction to the former's story.

Notes: This is painful and beautiful. I don't cry very often during stories, but I cried during this one. It's one of my favorite DW ficlets ever.

Notes: Very different from this author's usual style, with heavy dialogue and low internal monologue, but it's wonderfully done and perfectly in-character.

Notes: Second person ftw. Not only that, but the characterization in this is amazing. The sexuality in it feels right for this character, as does the darkness behind her and her actions. I am, as always, in awe.

Notes: I think it takes a very talented writer to say a lot in only a few words, and this one did it. I can see not only the world that he's written about (even without the picture), but the poignancy behind is fantastic.

Notes: The use of second person is flawless and I love the characterization of House and Thirteen in this. Beautifully done.

Notes: Still one of my favorites by this author. SO hilarious, so wonderfully in-character. I feel like Joss could've written this. I still read it when I need a good laugh. And, since we're slowing nearing the Christmas season, it's a good time to re-read!
