Blood and Roses by Orlha Chloe

  • Recommended By: Adele Potter
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: "There was no Jackson Rippner on that flight." Lisa finds herself being treated as the villain instead of the victim. Now she is on the run, and only one man can help her. After all, how can Jackson Rippner be dead if he was never on the Red Eye?
  • Parings: Lisa/Rippner, OC/OC, Jackson/OC, hints at Lisa/OC
  • Tags: Violence, some smut, foul language, mind games.
  • Comments: Wow. Just... wow. Excellent writing of both Rippner and Lisa, developing and exploring both of their characters. The Original Characters created for this fic are excellent as well. The romance is intriguing and believable, and the psychological elements are fantastic. I'd recommend it to anyone.

The Real Deal by Gallivant


  • Recommended By: DanglyLeggedOwl
  • Status: Abandoned with 3 chapters left to go
  • Synopsis: A psychological thriller sequel to Red Eye which follows Lisa's emotional journey after that fateful flight. Lisa wants to learn the truth behind what happened to her, and the truth about Jackson. Her quest leads to some shocking discoveries.
  • Pairings: Lisa/Jackson, Jackson/OC
  • Tags: violence, mind games, thriller elements. Rated T.
  • Comments: There is a significant amount of worldbuilding to this story as the author explores a possible background for Jackson's character. As you might expect, this background is a dark one, and the story draws a lot of suspense from and expands on a context that's only hinted at in the movie. In contrast, the developing romantic relationship between Lisa and Jackson is sweet and somewhat realistic. It's tragic that the writer seems to have abandoned the story a long time ago, shortly before its ending, but there's over 100,000 words written and what is there is excellent. Well worth a read.

Red Eyes, Bagels and DOA by Punctuator

  • Recommended By: DanglyLeggedOwl
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Lisa and Jackson meet again on yet another stormy evening flight. After braving this new adventure they decide to spend the rest of the day together. And the night. And then, there's got to be a morning after ...
  • Pairings: Lisa/Jackson
  • Tags: Series. Adventure. Some violence. Some fluff. Very light on the mind games. The first story has supernatural elements. Rated T.
  • Comments: There are two more sequels, which are rated M (Underground and Lux). Punctuator is a Cillian Murphy fan and has written some brilliant stories for his earlier movies. Also check out her fics for Red Lights (which might be the only ones in existence), 28 Days Later and particularly Sunshine.

How well does it match the trope?
