rec: child of the gods

Last rec. Thanks for letting me share. :)

Story: Child of the Gods
Author: johne
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3,893
Author's Summary: Vicki took the name Cressida, married Troilus, and made a life for herself with the refugees of fallen Troy. But now a man has come among them who claims to be a demigod, and he's killing anyone who gets in his way.
Characters/Pairings: Vicki
Warnings: None.

Recced because: First of all, johne's repository contains all of the rare and delightful early Doctor and minor character fics one could wish for - and that includes this gem, which is a fantastic take on Vicki-as-Cressida, giving hope to the Trojan refugees and leading them as best she can. And oh, does this placate my inner history nerd, as well as create delicious, clever sci-fi drama. The world needs more Vicki fic, but for now I'm content with a piece wherein she blows stuff up and is generally awesome. Not to mention the last line, which both demands and rejects the idea of a sequel, as it seeps hauntingly back through the entire story.
