  • Synopsis: An archive of our own writer who focuses predominantly on the relationship between David and Shaw in the aftermath of the events of Prometheus. Her writing is characterized by stream-of-consciousness, she delves into the mentalities of David and Shaw with extraordinary detail, and it's all-around really quality. Great characterization, pacing, and prose.

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

ForbiddenGifts by Ardath_Rekha
  • Recommended by: Elkian
  • Pairing: Shaw/Engineer
  • Synopsis: The Last Engineer is actually a wronged party, and not exactly up-to-date; he and Shaw develop an alliance that grows into romance. Mild sexual content (some dubious consent). Recommended for its excellent and convincing worldbuilding and characterization.
  • Status: On indefinite hold, not dead.
