Recced because: I was desperately hoping this story would be finished by the time my turn came up to rec. I know I just gave you a Seven story, but this one is very different and it needs a shout out:

This story doesn’t flinch. It goes dark as anything I’ve ever read on the teaspoon, but the terrifying part is that it goes dark while keeping every moment completely in-character. That, combined with the eerily beautiful descriptions of atomic war, is enough to give you nightmares. JJPOR shows us a version of the sixties which might have happened, had events transpired just a little differently. He spins a plot that keeps you reading, and gasping, and guessing at who might be responsible. The whole story is absolutely peppered with pop-culture references. Read this if you want a meaty, timey-wimey plot with perfect characterization. But don’t, I beseech you, read it late at night with the lights off…
