Summary:Bargaining with the Beasts beyond the reaches of furthest space for the opportunity of a new life, this time without the albatross of Sburb hanging over their heads, does indeed grant Rose Lalonde and her friends freedom from the game—at the price of their humanity. The new universe forged by the Noble Circle is a vivid, indistinguishable replica of the Alternia thought destroyed by all involved. With an oppressive caste system and the grim reality of new lives as trolls, and all that implies, Rose and her fifteen comrades resolve to instigate revolution and overthrow the oppressive regime of Her Imperious Condescension. But they number only sixteen, having barely scraped the surface of adulthood, and they are not the gods they once thought they were, and the Empress is an ancient thing—almost more institution than living, breathing being—with the power of an uncountable horde of trolls under her grasp.

Rose figures that makes them about even.

Summary:The news barks at him every time he turns the television on. The media is scrambling, inexplicable deaths and human-shaped bite-marks. There's shaky footage. A man in Florida tearing off another man's face, not dying until one brave cop nails him between the eyes.

Dave stops turning the television on, after politicians stop dismissing the claims and start avoiding cameras, faces gray and pinched.
Excerpt )

Reccer's Notes: I really like the general mood of this fic- it captures the general hopelessness of a zombie apocalypse perfectly. And the characterization of two if-not-broken-then-pretty-close kids. Woah.

Summary: Newternia's streets are merciless, especially if you happen to be a hard-boiled human detective on your first case with a crazy Legislacerator.
Oh, your city lies in dust my friend. Your city lies in dust.
Excerpt )
Reccer's Notes: This is one of the more well-known fics, but it is just so damn good that it needs to be rec'd everywhere and anywhere possible. The characterization is stunning, especially the Dave-voice it is told in.
