Rec: The Waiting Room World by stunt_muppet

Story: The Waiting Room World
Author: stunt_muppet
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: One day the Earth will burn. A series of short ficlets, centered around the crew of the Space Station Nerva (From "The Ark in Space") before their hibernation.
Characters/Pairings: Noah, Vira, Lycet, Rogan (Noah/Vira and Lycet/Rogan implied)
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~1,600 words

Recced because: This is exactly the sort of thing fanfic can do so well – take some minor characters and really bring them to life. I don't remember the crew from Ark in Space terribly clearly, having seen the episode over two years ago now, but this made them real again to me, and beautifully so. The end-of-days feel is captured perfectly, but with that little spark of hope that makes the whole crazy endeavour the crew is on feel so real, and so heartbreaking. This is careful, quiet, and lovely work.
