Summary:
Sam Beckett Leaps into Blair during the events of "The Sentinel by Blair Sandburg." His mission, to find a better solution to the problem of the dissertation.

Review:
I've always enjoyed crossover. I enjoy them all the more when they use canon materials I both know and enjoy as it is the case here.
Quantum leap is an easy tv-show to cross over since the main character Sam "jumps" in the lives of other people to "fix" a mistake they've made.
Azar manages to take the best of both canon to makes a truly great story. The characters are spot on and the dialogs ring very much true. And the solution Sam-as-Blair finds is so much more satisfying than the one used in the original show I can't help wishing it had happened just like this.

Dark Shadows Over Time By Alia (NC-17)

  • Apr. 22nd, 2011 at 10:05 AM
Title: Dark Shadows Over Time
Fandom: Quantum Leap
Pairing: Al/Sam
Categories: Angst, Dark, Drama, Hurt/Comfort, Friendship
Length: Epic
Warnings: This story depicts life in a POW camp as a POW so some extremely unpleasant and disturbing situations and emotional issues crop up, including but not limited to non-con, homophobic themes, coercion, physical and mental torture, and attempted suicide. There is also the recovery involved so please tread carefully.

Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] evilleaper
Website: Alia’s Amorous Intent

Author’s Summary: ‘Dark Shadows Over Time’ tells of Sam's leap into a Vietnamese prison of war camp near the very end of the conflict. - Leap date 1973. - Sam's host for this leap is no other than his long time friend and observer Al. From the beginning Al is reluctant to reveal to Sam his hosts identity or to accept that Sam is being missed treated beyond what is expected as part and parcel of being a P.O.W. Why? Because Al has secrets he has never told anyone. Secrets he believes will not help Sam, the young man that Sam is there to help and will only harm his relationship with Sam.

Review:
This is one of those series that is like a one-two punch in the gut. It has the power to leave you reeling, leave you hurt, leave you angry, and make you want to fight back. Well, fight back in the sense that you just have to keep reading because there’s always darkness before the dawn, isn’t there?

Alia does a fantastic job of creating a sometimes choppy, sometimes confused, and always thriving piece of fiction about both Sam and Al’s life before, during, and after his years of leaping through time and other people’s lives, most especially Al’s. The horrors they face, together and apart, are heartbreaking and disturbing, and the road to recovery is a long one but, as with every leap, the rewards are always greater than the pain and they both prove this here. Though I freely admit that there are a few pacing issues what with the author changing from first person to third person narrative depending on the point-of-view, it still manages to be an intense read from beginning to end.

Author's Summary: Sam Beckett's life is never fair.

Review:
Quantum Leap has always been my 'hard candy' fandom. You know the kind I'm talking about: the fandom you always keep going back to because you know what you're getting into and even if you don't end up liking it, it’ll always satiate a craving for you. That’s what QL is for me and the craving it tends to satiate is the angst or bittersweet love craving I get from time to time. Don’t get me wrong, I love pretty much every QL story I’ve read, but unless Sam finally makes the leap home, it’s never really happy, is it?

Never Fair is a prime example of what I mean. It's as bitter as it is sweet and goes a long way to encapsulating one of the ways that Sam and Al could finally be but not really be together. Which is about standard for the fandom. Even so, this doesn't read like an episode, but more of a character insight because even though Sam has leaped into someone's life to put right what once went wrong, he finds himself doing something he rarely does: using the leap as a way to battle loneliness and get real human connection. The kind of connection he wants with Al and Al, for his part, is realizing he wants the same. Even if they can't have the way we do.

Title: Imperfections: John and Rodney
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis with cameos from The Sentinel and Quantum Leap
Pairing: McKay/Sheppard
Category: AU, crossover, h/c, and romance
Length: long, almost epic
Warnings: n/a 

Author on LJ[profile] dashamte
Author's websites: Sentinel stories at Cascade Library and 852 Prospect, SG1 at Area 52, Highlander at http://soulcake.skeeter63.org/dasha.html, and SGA at Warithbait. (Editor's note: I only provided a link if I had one to an author's page)

Author's Summary: Both an AU and a Crossover! This is the story of John and Rodney from my TS Imperfections universe: In St. Louis in the mid 80s, Rodney is a fragile sentinel changing guides almost as often as other people change socks.

Review:
It's very easy to imagine Rodney as a sentinel (specialized in structural engineering no less) and John as the perfect guide for him; only John would have that much patience for Rodney AND stand up for himself when Rodney gets impossible. The engineering aspect of Rodney's job depicted is very interesting and so...Rodney. I admit I have a weakness for SGA AUs, and I really can't say no to a Sentinel crossover.

The second half of the story gets a bit angsty (e.g. Rodney getting sick while John's away), but John always comes back to save the day (loads of h/c!). John calls Rodney 'sweetheart' several times in the story; while this usually irks me, it didn't hinder my enjoyment of this story.

Author's Summary: Both an AU and a Crossover! This is the story of John and Rodney from my TS Imperfections universe: In St. Louis in the mid 80s, Rodney is a fragile sentinel changing guides almost as often as other people change socks.

Review:
It's very easy to imagine Rodney as a sentinel (specialized in structural engineering no less) and John as the perfect guide for him; only John would have that much patience for Rodney AND stand up for himself when Rodney gets impossible. The engineering aspect of Rodney's job depicted is very interesting and so...Rodney. I admit I have a weakness for SGA AUs, and I really can't say no to a Sentinel crossover.

The second half of the story gets a bit angsty (e.g. Rodney getting sick while John's away), but John always comes back to save the day (loads of h/c!). John calls Rodney 'sweetheart' several times in the story; while this usually irks me, it didn't hinder my enjoyment of this story.
