Time Zero

rec: unit follow-up report 2.481.34

Story: U.N.I.T. Follow-Up Report 2.481.34
Author: ellisbelle
Rating: All Ages
Word count: 100 (exactly)
Author's summary: Sarah Jane compiles her field notes after her latest assignment—Mrs. Emma Peel.
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane Smith/Emma Peel (from The Avengers)
Warnings: none

Recced because: a) It's a drabble. A proper, precisely-100-words-no-more-no-less drabble. A really good drabble like this one is like a little jewel, perfectly crafted to get across one particular idea, somewhere between a haiku and a good joke and who knows what else. b) It's a crossover with The Avengers (the British telly ones, not the American comics ones). Sarah Jane Smith/Emma Peel is quite possibly too much awesome to be withstood for longer than 100 words. c) Despite the restrictions of the word count and the format used, both women's personalities come through wonderfully. ellisbelle always gives good SJS, and her Emma Peel is equally well captured.

(You could have read the fic in the time it took to read that, but never mind.)
