Why This Must Be Read: Much Prometheus fic is either pre-canon or post, and after a while it can feel a bit same-y. This fic manages to take the post-canon concept of David and Dr. Shaw traveling to the Engineers' planet and make it fresh, particularly when it comes to a twist regarding Vickers. It's also wonderfully constructed and thematically worked out. I know I'll read it again and again.

Why This Must Be Read: I would recommend this for the way the author perfectly captures the tone of David--not just how he speaks, but how he exists (if that makes sense). I love explorations of David's earlier life and learning and his time on the Prometheus before the crew wakes. These scenes are juxtaposed and dovetail perfectly with post-canon scenes of his and Elizabeth's journey on the Engineers' ship.
