Heroes, 3 recs, Claire Bennet/Sylar

Challenge 168
Category: Once and Future Fandoms

I used to watch Heroes and I shipped Sylar and Claire Bennet. It has been 6 years since it ended but I still ship SYLAIRE and I wonder what could have happened if Heroes had a 5th season (something separate from Heroes Reborn in that it would include the main characters especially Sylar and Claire).

Fandom: Heroes, Heroes Reborn
Pairing: Claire Bennet/Sylar
Title: Pacing The Cage
Author: eboleiul
Rating/Warning(s): Mature. Major Character Death but don't worry because it's a Post-Canon Fix-it fanfic.
Word Count/WIP?: 3,920. Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: The first part of These Lives He Owes series. This is the perfect fanfic to connect what happened after Heroes ended to when Heroes Reborn began. Sylar secretly tries to keep Claire safe after she revealed the existence of EVOs at the end of Heroes.

I wish eboleiul wrote Heroes Reborn because this fanfic highlights what the series needed to bring back (Sylar and Claire, the immortal constants).

Why This Must Be Read: A oneshot set after Sylar and Claire talk about their similarities in S4. This fic explores their relationship after Sylar has gone and 'fixed' himself. There is no instantaneous shift in their relationship, rather the changes come gradually and hesitatingly. An old favorite of mine.

Title: 6:37am
Author: Sylaire
Rating/Warning(s): Unrated but I'd go with Mature (for language and canon-typical violence)
Word Count/WIP?: 7,493. Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: Tense and surreal. It's got no description on AO3 but you will not regret reading this fanfic. Here is a preview:

Sylar nodded once. “Why me?”

“You’re strong, your powers make you useful.” She bit her lip, carefully analysing him as she drew in a steady breath. “Many people love Claire Bennet, but I think you understand her importance better than anyone else."
