Rec: A Life Between Heaven and Earth by Abyssal

Wikustopher Banner
Title: A Life Between Heaven and Earth
Author: Abyssal
Canon: District 9
Pairing: Christopher Johnson/Wikus van der Merwe
Rating: Explicit [NC-17]
Word Count: 33,536
Summary: Sometimes all the things you know can be challenged by the one thing you don’t. Sometimes love isn’t easy to explain – not when a universe of differences exist between you.

Recommendation: Okay, so this is probably not going to be for everyone but I have always been interested in pairings that explore a little past human standard. This is more than a little past with the Poleepkwa being hermaphroditic, but I find that the emotions are the same even while the mechanics are different. There’s caring and jealousy, hurt and understanding all with a plot involving intrigue and something of a tragic backstory for Wikus.
