Pairing: Audrey Parker/Nathan Wuornos
Fic Title: When There's Nothing Left To Burn
Rating/Warning(s): Violence, Character death
Genre: Angst, Post-Apocalyptic, AU
Why This Must Be Read: The very best AUs are the ones that are perfectly in character. It takes a lot for me to buy into an apocalyptic AU, and this one nails it, with chilling details and a fantastic narrator in Audrey, cynical, but still reluctantly hopeful.
The author makes a stylistic choice not to use quotes around dialogue, which is a distraction at first but the story's rhythm sucks you in quickly enough that it can be overlooked.
