The Last Two Men by Toestastegood (R)

Title: The Last Two Men
Fandom: Heroes
Pairing: Mohinder/Sylar (but I would probably call this Mohinder centric gen)

Author on LJ: toestastegood
Website: n/a

Author's Summary: On the 13th of November 2010, the dead began to remain undead. Two years later, the last men on Earth struggle to survive.

Review:
I Am Legend Mylar style.

The Last Two Men is not a story for the faint-hearted. If you've seen the movie I Am Legend and loved it (or loved most of it), you might appreciate when I say this story is darker, more chilling, and will leave you with hopelessness and despair. You see the world through Mohinder's eyes and you will have the full experience of his doubts and fears and watch his hopes being crushed.

The writing isn't exceptional, yet the emotions came through raw and painful. I think this story might have temporarily scarred me. Highly recommended to enthusiasts of the zombie genre. Just remember to keep a fluffy story handy to read afterwards.

I love this fic and I totally agree with the advice to have a fluffy fic close to hand when it's over! Oh my heart!
