Fanfic: A Period Of Silence
A Period of Silence
is a Kim Possible
fanfic that stands apart from the usual crowd. The story follows Kim and Shego as they explore a new relationship that they never could have imagined and probably wouldn't have been possible if something hadn't gone horribly wrong in Kim's past.
What that something is... isn't revealed right away. From the first scene all the way up until the end, there's a constant sense that we've missed something very important. Strangely, this lets us identify with the characters even more as we witness them go through circumstances that, while certainly action-packed and interesting, still come across as stumbling around in a daze after something truly earth-shattering; an uneasy period of silence.
But things don't stay quiet for long. Shego is slowly losing control of her powers, and has to seek out a figure from her past to regain it. Meanwhile, Kim's own traumatic past has a way of catching up to her....
The story is notable for its unique take on the Kim/Shego pairing, as well as the epic yet poetic writing style that makes every sentence a joy to read. It has a short prequel, Fling
, that you should check out first.
It now also has a sequel one-shot, DRIFT
, set two years after the end of A Period of Silence.
