Title: The Big Picture |
Fandom: The Dead Zone
Pairing: Johnny Smith/Walt Bannerman
Author's Summary: His visions always gave him just enough information to act on, but they were never really great on giving him the big picture.
Reccer's Notes: The Dead Zone is one of those tiny fandoms where you have to dig and dig and dig to find much to read, but it's so worth it when you discover an author like Speranza. First off, her characters are pretty much spot on to the show (which you need to check out if you never have!) and act in completely believeable ways. Second, her stories have *OMFG* PLOT! And not just plot, but plot that is sophisticated and pulls you into the fic. And finally, the combination of Johnny and Walt is just so yummy that it adds the finishing touch a fic needs to be totally worth reading! Which this one is. I don't care if you don't even know the fandom, try it out anyway.
Oh, she writes SGA, too, if you need some other incentive to try her out. GO!
"Yeah," Walt said. "You know, this coma shit is becoming a habit with you. Stop it."
And it was such a relief to make jokes, to refuse to take any of this seriously. "Hey, I'm trying to cut down," Johnny said.
Walt yanked the room's door open and waved him through. "Maybe you can find a support group."
"Oh, sure. 'Hi, my name is Johnny and I'm a psychic who goes into comas a lot.' 'Hello, Johnny....'"
Walt shrugged and followed him out. "I didn't say it would be a popular support group..."
