rec: From the Dust by Daleks of the Daleks

Story: From the Dust
Author: Daleks of the Daleks
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1976
Author's Summary: Omega discovers definitively that some gifts can very quickly become terrible curses.
Characters/Pairings: Omega, The Time Lords
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This is a great, unusual fic that I was lucky enough to stumble over when browsing the Spoon, and I’m so glad I did! It’s a chilling and evocative piece that follows Omega on his one way trip through the black hole, as his initial triumph at what he’s achieved and hope of rescuing turning over the years to isolation and despair, and finally to anger and madness. It’s a fascinating, excellent look at a ‘villain’ as he’s never quite portrayed in the series itself. I hope very much we’ll see some more from this author, too.
