Why This Must Be Read: As a huge fan of the original Terminator movies and the too-beautiful-to-live TV series, I didn't have high expectations for this new movie, but I was totally thrilled by how it brought together new and old timelines, twisted and inverted the familiar story, and introduced a new emotional journey for our heroes to take in the inevitable next film. This fic is a deeply bittersweet coda to the film, factoring in the major changes in the new timeline and what it means to people who knew the old one by heart. The shippiness is present throughout but tidily woven into the larger story at hand, just as it should be.
