Author's Summary:  We all do what we have to do to survive. Heroes crossover.
Characters/Pairings:  Rose Tyler/Claude Raines (Heroes)

Recced because:  This is honorh’s Heroes crossover, featuring a coworkers-with-benefits arrangement between a post-Doomsday (no S4) Rose and Claude Raines (if you’re not familiar with Heroes, he’s a man with the power of invisibility played by none other than Christopher Eccleston).  They’re both haunted by the past, although Rose has become totally badass as she copes with the present.  The sarcastic humor that characterized Claude even more than Nine is definitely there.  Honorh melds the fandoms smoothly and nails the characterization.  "Survival" is truthful, entertaining, smart, and rather bitter.  There’s a more hopeful sequel tucked away in one of honorh’s meme collections.  Some familiarity with S1 of Heroes will help when reading this.  If you, like me, pass the time until the Christmas special by watching each week’s Heroes and thinking, “that was OK, but it needed Claude,” check this out.
