25 Days of AR Ficmas - Day 2
Counting down to Christmas I’ll be posting Alex Rider fic recs for 25 days, with a few fanarts and fanmixes scattered in. Track #arficmas for your daily dose!
Today’s fic: Twisting, Turning, Tumbling by ShiruyTheSecond (FFN)
100 Themes Challenge Yassen/Alex Style. It’s an easy mission, they just need him to provide cover, he won’t be in any danger… Yeah, right. As if that had ever been true before. Alex is so sick of this.
Shiruy’s style is amazing. A series of interconnected (but out of order) scenes slowly weave a story around Alex’s further decent into the spy world and invariable attraction to a very-much-alive Yassen Gregorovich. Reminiscent of the film Shorts, if you’ve ever seen it. Just replace the cute suburban aura with murder and drugs. Unfortunately, the fic isn’t complete, and hasn’t been updated since 2011. Still a great read.
And what is this? A few comic pages from the fic.
