MAIN CHARACTERS: Finis Valorum, Qui-Gon Jinn

FIC SUMMARY: Valorum tries to discover Jinn's human side. Part of the "Fin & Jinn" series. Follows "Well Begun".

RECCER'S NOTES: This is part of a series exploring the friendship between Qui-Gon Jinn, Jedi Master and troll, and Finis Valorum (as in, "I move for a vote of no confidence in Chancellor"). The latter has exactly seven lines in canon (I checked), but his character is fully fleshed out here and his rather odd friendship with Qui-Gon is as believable as it is inevitable. This particular story takes place when both characters are young men, each still trying to decipher the other.

I wish I knew if this author is still writing somewhere. They have a very thoughtful approach to storytelling and character that I'd love to see again.

Aaaand I'm done!

MAIN CHARACTERS: Jackson, Herrick, Orfe, Tala, Fourth Doctor.

FIC SUMMARY: The quest is the quest. It’s all that’s left.

RECCER'S NOTES: An unusual tale which lingers in the mind after reading. The fic concerns characters in a DW serial, the unloved, Underworld the one with a lot of CSO. The fic starts from before the Doctor appears and finishes just after he leaves. The fic details how Jackson feels about regeneration and how it reduces him and his crew. The piece works on its own without any prior knowledge of Underworld.
