by LJ's wrenlet.
It was written as part of nanowrimo in 2003, and it's a QAF/Dead Like Me crossover. Have no fear if you've never seen DLM. I hadn't when I first read it, and you'll understand everything just fine.
Now, it is a death fic. If you love death fic and don't want to be spoiled, ignore the cut. But if you don't love death fic and don't usually read it, allow me to
twist your arm explain...
Justin dies at the prom in this fic, but he's not really dead. He's made a grim reaper.
He looks different, and has a different persona, but he's still in Pittsburgh, and he's still Justin inside.
I find the fic incredibly beautiful, but it's definitely sad as well. Justin is mourned. Justin is dead to his family and friends, but he has to go on, and try and make a new "life" for himself. He stuggles, and he does his best, but it's definitely not easy.
Brian also dies at the end of this fic, but in death, they are together again. That's why I can read this fic when I can't read other deathfics.
I love this fic. The characterisation is amazing. The OC's fresh and interesting. It's a magic world wrenlet creates. I hope you'll give it a chance.
