rec: Serenity's Shadow by Chryse

Hello! philosophercat here! I too will be reccing fics this week for your reading pleasure. *tips hat*

Title: Serenity's Shadow.
Author: Chryse.
Characters/Pairings: 5th Doctor, Nyssa of Traken, Tegan Jovanka, Adric.
Rating: All ages.
Warnings: None.
Word Count: 28316.
Summary: Set after the events of the novel 'Cold Fusion' and before 'Earthshock'. Nyssa decides she wants to leave the TARDIS crew and make a new life for herself on the Trakenite colony of Serenity. But little does she realise 'there's no place like home'.

Recced Because: This work in progress is a worthy sequel to the serial Keeper of Traken, a powerful story difficult to follow up on. The regular characters are pitch-perfect, those invented by the author well rounded and memorable. Each element slots in nicely, the atmosphere and pacing would fit an actual episode from its era. In addition, it is worth noting that the author avoids many of the pitfalls fan fiction writers very often have in portraying Adric. He's given the same honest treatment as the others, which is just another way of saying the author's done her work well.
