BSG Roslin

Happily Ever Afters (Are Not Your Absolution), by Camilla Sandman

Story: Happily Ever Afters (Are Not Your Absolution)
Author: Camilla Sandman
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 5,401
Author's Summary: There aren't always happy endings, even with a time machine. (Doctor Who/Battlestar Galactica crossover)
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Martha/Lee Adama, Adama/Roslin, implied Lee/Kara
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a beautiful and meditative fixit for parts of the BSG finale (and sorry, if you aren't a fan of the rebooted series, you won't be able to follow along). Ten changes a bit of history, Martha and Lee commiserate over unattainable loves, and Adama and Roslin celebrate a new lease on life. There's so much to love here: Sandman's deft touch with the characters; the themes of love, sex, and death that twine through every part of the story; and best of all, the way the two series mesh together in a way that feels true to both.
