Review: I first started reading PlotbunniesInc stories back when they started churning out some absolutely amazing Torchwood fics. With the end of Torchwood I was afraid I'd seen the last of their awesome ficcage, but Angel's From the Neon written by the9thdoctor  with handolding by leofuller  definitely made up for the wait.

This 40,00+ word epic is an awsome crash course into the Killjoys universe, happening at some undefined time before the two music videos that started it all. I love the9thDoctor's interpretation of all the characters and the artsy elements in the story really struck a cord with me. If you're like me and can't sit still for more than five minutes without drawing, folding, or ripping something up to make a piece of art, then Gerard's character, Party Poison, will probably strike a similar cord with you.

True to her earlier stories the9thDoctor seals the deal with her amazing ability to build worlds. From Battery City to the Danger Zones, every landscape and building is vibrant and memorable, without being overly weighted down with descriptions. It's all about the little details.

The one thing that I had a real problem with in this story was keeping my images of the characters straight. But if you look the 'Fabulous Killjoys' up it's fairly easy to sort everything out. If you read a lot of My Chemical Romance fics, you probably won't even need to do that.

That being said, I'd suggest this fic as a good read for anybody who likes a good post-apocalyptic/government conspiracy/destined soul mate story, even if you don't usually go for RPS.

Hi there, just catching up with bookmarking the recs on delicious. Looks like you're missing a "genre: amnesia" tag. :D
