Fanfic Recs: The Thing (1982)
Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Fan Fics, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into sexually explicit or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

Published Works

The Things by Peter Watts for Clarkesworld Magazine
  • Recommended by Jonn
  • Synopsis: The Thing from the point of view of the Thing.
  • Comments: Creepy as the film itself, and it explains several questions about the infection. Non-linear though, so you may want to brush up on the film's synopsis.
    • Spectral Time: Great story, lame, contrived, needlessly-evil ending.
    • Pepinson: Sounded pretty righteous to me.

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.

Unfinished Business: An optimistic continuation of both the Carpenter film and the prequel centred around the survivors teaming up with a Russian expedition team to destroy the Thing once and for all.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.
