Why This Must Be Read:Author's description: Aliens AU - Sometimes family is all you have left. This is how I think Aliens should have continued. Ripley, Hicks, and Newt are picked up by scavengers (read: space pirates) and they end up staying with them and creating their own unique family. The story has both light and dark moments but Lizzen balances them perfectly while giving us more of Ripley and Hicks and their growing relationship.
