Pairing: Ellen Ripley/Dwayne Hicks
Fic Title: Long Live the Queen
Special Rec: 3/31
Why This Must Be Read: This is Hicks and Ripley after, no longer in space, no longer running, just trying to adapt (and survive) to a world neither really thought they'd see again. This is about family, and how it's not perfect, not a happily-ever-after, but it is real, it's survival, and it's them together.
Clearly written, with lovely characterisations. This story is awesome.
