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.

Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Character Study, Drama
WIP?: No (though the author's hinted there could be more)
Special Rec: 6/?

Why This Must Be Read: A minutely observed retelling of select moments from the film and before it, from David's point of view. It's philosophical and detailed, and I completely believed how David could fall in love with Elizabeth.

Special Rec: 7/?

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is just plain creepy and haunting and one of the more likely post-canon scenarios. It's also simple on the surface with lots going on underneath.

WIP?: No
Special Rec: 8/?

Why This Must Be Read: A compact exploration of how Shaw navigates her new reality and beliefs upon setting forth for the Engineers' world with David. Lovely, in its way, and true-to-character and canon.

Rating/Warning(s): Mature; "dubious robot consent issues" (in the words of the author)
Genre: Drama
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 9/?

Why This Must Be Read: Someone had to write this fic because let's face it: Prometheus is all kinds of freaky, David especially. Here, he attempts some more manipulation, but he underestimates Shaw. Maybe this will be the last time he does that, hm?


*Hello, mods, this time I'm in need of Meredith Vickers/David and Elizabeth Shaw/Charlie Holloway tags. Thanks!*
