Fic Title: Freefall
Author: Siria
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/134402
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Genre: Alternative Universe
WIP?: N

Why This Must Be Read: Despite the name, this "Freefall" isn't, in any way, connected to wishfulaces' story (recced here). In this "Freefall," Parker coaxes Hardison to jump off a bridge...in space. Short, but charming and in character.

Why This Must Be Read: When I watched the movie, I really liked the characters and being the compulsive shipper that I am I obviously shipped Joe and Alice, but I never thougt I would actually go looking for fic. Problem is, that wen you don't look for something, it tends to find you. And that's what happened to me with this fic, one day I clicked and clicked and clicked and ended up in an entry with a Super 8 fic written by an author that I consider extraordinary so I HAD to read it. It was all I wasn't expecting and much more. I love that it takes the kids in a direcction that if I had thought about it, imagine how their lives would have gone after the events in the movie I wouldn't have created for them and makes it work so much better than anyting I could have come up with. I think she makes it real.

Note: I need a tag for "fandom: super 8" and  "ship: Alice Dainard/Joe Lamb".
