And here we are at the end. To everyone who read this magnum opus: I seriously can't thank you enough for sharing this with me. The prologue for the original fic was posted on 16th of April 2008, which means it's been part of my life for more than 4 years...

Setting: Spring/summer 2010.
Spoilers: Up to an including Children of Earth.
Rating: PG-13. (Some swearing.)
Genre: FitB, character study, BtVS/AtS/Doctor Who/Torchwood crossover.

Dedication: To my ever wonderful beta [livejournal.com profile] kathyh, without whose dedication, care, hard work and thoughtful comments this wouldn't be half the fic it is.
Author's Notes: CoE and TYTNW cast long shadows, as you will see. Hopefully this will provide a certain amount of closure.

I've just sent the final draft of the last chapter to my beta.

I... don't know how to feel.

(ETA: Index post here in case there's anyone out there who doesn't know what I'm talking about.)

ETA2: Just happened to look back through old entries and found the WIP meme, wherein I moaned about this chapter and posted the first line. And indeed that line has gone. Plus the chapter has had SO MUCH work done to it that it's barely recognisable. And it's taken 5 months... /o\

So, the Children of Earth chapter. Not surprisingly this is wall-to-wall angst, although it's all quite subdued. For those not familiar with Children of Earth, this is by far the best description I can think of:

'There are things worse than walls. Terrible... and beautiful. If we look at them for too long they will burn right through us. Truths we couldn't bear. Not every day.'

This chapter deals with the aftermath, looking at what happens when someone has been burned right through and there is nothing left.

My Immortal 2. Chapter 5. )
elisi: (My Immortal by ruuger)
Have yet to watch ep 6 of Miracle Day, but for anyone wondering what the impact of that story is on my 'Immortal' verse, it's mostly that the Slayers are having an absolute field day, wiping out vampires (and other assorted nasties) as quickly as they can. Immortality + accelerated healing powers = nigh on invincibility. (The Council is of course trying to work out what lies behind the miracle, but since Jack & co are presumably going to solve it, they will be unsuccessful.)

The vampires OTOH are very worried that they can't turn people, and are realising that they're on the way to becoming an endangered species. Other demons are on the whole just keeping to themselves, and annoyed that they can't move to a different dimension.

(By the way, the next chapter - second to last - is hopefully coming next week.)

I was going to post this Monday... Better late than never, right?

Before we plunge into the darkness of ‘Children of Earth’, a little interlude. This was originally written as a standalone Christmas fic in 2008, so before I had actually finished the first story (original edition here). I have edited it a bit, and added a few extra scenes so that it ties in better with the current timeline.

However it is still mostly standalone, Christmassy fluff - hope you enjoy! :)

Right. It's here. (Consequences is the watch word for this one. And the tying up of loose ends.) I had hoped to finish the whole fic before Miracle Day aired, but life had other plans. Hopefully though, I should be able to post the rest before too long, since all there's left is a short interlude (a Christmas ficlet written several years ago which I thought people might enjoy) and then the final two chapters which deal with [the fallout from] 'Children of Earth'. And then it will all be OVER!

Here you go! You would have gotten this sooner if only RL hadn't been so busy. Had LOTS of fun writing it (although it turned out very long! /o\), and hope you enjoy it too. For those not familiar with Ianto, you might like to watch this short collection of some of Ianto's best moments, just to get a feel for him. He has a brilliant line in deadpan snark.

Well folks, here you are. It took a bit longer than anticipated, but here’s the start of the sequel and it feels... kinda strange finally posting it. I mean, I’ve had huge chunks of this planned out from back when I was still writing the original fic (the Year That Never Was story came from a single line in this chapter), so you’ll see how various stuff that I set up back then will now pay off. I hope you’ll think it worth waiting for. :)

Feedback: Pretty please? I’m rather nervous. Follow-ups are inevitably fraught...
Author’s Notes: PLEASE READ THIS. This fic will be different from the original for several reasons:
1) Where the original fic was mostly set in the Buffy ‘verse, this will mostly take place in the Torchwood ‘verse.
2) Previously I focussed on Buffy and Jack and their relationship as one long continuous story. Here the stories are mostly interconnected stand alones, written to fit in around canon, and dealing with various fallout from same.
3) Some of this fallout will be from the events that took place during The Year That Never Was, wherein the Master (an evil Timelord and the Doctor’s arch nemesis) took over planet Earth, enslaving humankind - I wrote a tie-in fic which, amongst other things, explored what happened to the Slayers. (At the end of the year time rewound, and only a handful of people - Jack included - remember what happened.)
4) Since this story takes place post-NFA, I've had to develop my own take on what happened to the Buffy 'verse characters, and it's all there for a reason.
