Rec: An Irksome Word and Task, by Cryptile

Story: An Irksome Word and Task
Author: Cryptile
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 9529
Author's Summary: The stars are going out all over Creation, and he's at a Christmas party. In Lannet.
Characters/Pairings: Shalka!Nine, Alyson Cheney
Warnings: Swearing. Also creep.

Recced because: Very much a fic for the advanced class: it's freaky, it's scary, it's rambling and difficult to keep up with and it is overwhelming when the pieces finally click together and you really, truly realize what's going on. It's also, surprisingly, a very funny story, capturing Shalka!Nine's particular flavor of bitter, broken hilarity to perfection, and does not forget to carry Alyson from rather generic companion model to extremely much a person in her own right. If you're only ever going to read one Shalka fic, make it this one.
