    Meta/Review of the Resurrection Ship Episodes of BSG v.2

    The new series is far more interested in the ethics of warfare and how war changes people, what it turns people into and whether we become the monsters we are fighting. A theme that is much closer to the one examined in Francis Ford Coppola's film Apocalypse Now, based on Joseph Conrad's novella "Heart of Darkness". The other group of episodes this arc reprised from the original series - were the ones where Apollo dies and is brought back - in those, Apollo sacrifices himself for someone, the death is mystical, and his resurrection very romantic - here - it's grittier and more realistic. In some ways closer to the events of Coppola's war film, at the very least - the Nietzche metaphor taken literally - gazing into an abyss and drowning as a result.

    Summary

    The novel picks up where the iconic movie leaves off, with Colonel Kurtz's
    Cambodian compound destroyed by a firefight.
    Captain Willard lives in obscurity in Los Angeles when he learns that Colby,
    the CIA agent who followed Kurtz, survived. He is exacting revenge, killing
    off every survivor who had something to do with Kurtz's death.
    Willard is recruited by Colonel Lucas (who sent him on the mission up the Nung River)
    to find Colby and stop him.
    Willard recruits Kilgore, now a surfer in the East Bay and Lance Johnson, who runs a
    meditation community, to stop him.

    Summary

    «Он был моим другом. Тем, кого я считал своим другом. Знал ли я его? Знал ли его кто-нибудь из нас по-настоящему, и были ли мы способны постичь его?»
    Их четверо, но только одному из них суждено проникнуть в сердце тьмы и стать рукой правосудия, исполнив пророчество.

    Это АU, несущее в себе атмосферу и сюжет, схожие с фильмом "Апокалипсис сегодня"
    Помимо фильма многое было взято из книги Дж. Конрада «Сердце Тьмы», которая в свое время стала основой для фильма.
    В тексте встречаются цитаты из фильма и книги. Сохранена атмосфера, сюжетная линия (в общих чертах), идея и чисто визуально – некоторые сцены.

    Summary

    Ghods only know what possessed me to slash "Apocalypse Now." Just don't ask me to figure out what counts as consensual under Stockholm circumstances and the presence of death.

    But 's certainly graphic and dark, so be warned.

    Note: Apocalypse means a showing or revealing. Gehenna was originally a rubbish dump where trash was burned.

    Summary

    Three "mirror fics" (both characters in a pairing were played by the same actor). This was Oro's idea, and she wrote some too, but I don't know where they are.
