Note: This is my first official review of a piece of fan fiction.
The Work of Her Hands
Author: Robyn Bender
Category: Drama (John/Aeryn)
Spoilers: Episode Addition to “Icarus Abides.”
There are a few things that are notoriously hard to write well. Sex is probably at the top of the list, but grief isn’t far down from the top. This short story is about a woman who came, after long struggle and with great initial reluctance, to love a man who was first her closest ally and friend. She loses him suddenly; this story is about the time immediately following that loss. It is tightly written, clean in its scope and highly evocative.
