    Summary

    After Galen Erso reveals he has built a new and annihilating weapon, a team is dispatched on an expedition to an island guarded by a force called the Shimmer, where the plans that might lead to the destruction of the weapon can be found.

    The team consists of six people: an FBI agent so by-the-book he's called robotic; a soldier in Army Intelligence carrying shadows and an ulterior motive; a blind linguistic anthropologist listening for a single voice; a paramedic haunted by trauma and addiction; a physicist turned whistleblower torn open with grief; and a biologist, the daughter of Erso, who thinks she is only here to save the world.

    The Shimmer takes them in.

    And everything they carry with them.

    What returns is not the same, if it returns at all.

    Or: an ANNIHILATION AU.

    Summary

    Anya packs up her shit, helps Josie do the same, and they move out on their own because fuck Lena. Fuck Ventress. She’s not invested in a suicide like this, and she won’t let Josie follow in their misguided footsteps. (Kind of a fix-it AU)

    Summary

    Dimly, a part of her recognized the fact that this thing had swallowed Ventress right up - crept inside her, took her over, consumed her and spat her back out as this nebulous light. But she was fascinated. So fascinated she didn’t even think of safety procedures, or staying at a distance until she was sure it was harmless - she approached it slowly, eyes fixed on the morphing, mutating light.

    Lena's thoughts and feelings when she meets her doppelgänger.

    Summary

    From the last team that had gone in, only one had returned, and Anya knew he was currently in a coma and not expected to wake up anytime soon, if at all. The most popular theories on the soldiers that hadn’t returned were that they’d either been killed by something, or they’d gone mad and killed each other.

    Considering this place, Anya was starting to suspect it was the latter.

    Summary

    "Nobody's ever come back from the Shimmer."

    "That's all right," Mac says cheerfully. "We're the best team on the planet. We'll fix it."

    Of course, Mac's a perpetual optimist; but nothing's ever stopped them before, Riley figures. Right?

    Right...
