  • Review: This is a wonderful one-shot that examines the relationship and chemistry between Ripley and Hicks, set years after the events of the film, when Ripley tells a teenaged Newt about how she fell in love with Hicks on Hadley's Hope one night. I loved how the author expanded upon an already-delightful chemistry between Ripley and Hicks, and showed how their tentative interest strengthened and grew into genuine love for one another.
