  1. Summary

    Matt's always been a sentinel. It's just that almost nobody knows what those are.

    Enter Blair Sandburg and Jim Ellison, with a need for legal representation.

    Canon-compliant, as far as canon goes and I'm aware, for both The Sentinel and the first season of the Daredevil television show. Except, of course, for the part where these two shows are in the same universe.

    Lovely, lovely series. De-aging fic, but the kind that also manages to be tender and poignant and absolutely loving. I particularly love how John's cover of "W," invented last minute as a shield against Moriarty, grows and grows until Moriarty is lost in its shadow. I have reread this series several times, years apart, and plan to do so again soon.

    (Except for the last story, in which the meta gets to be way too much, particularly since the meta is all about how the author really hates the fandom. I mean, I guess "the author" is meant to be Doyle, but it's kind of a sour note to go out on for a series. Bits of the story are still good, but the meta also means that the story plot just falls apart.)

    See my notes on the first half of this story, Blades of Blood, if you want to know what I think about it. (Or, I could just say: Awesome).

    Ooh, my favorite of Vathara's work, finally available on AO3! Here's my description from when I first bookmarked the version of this fic on fanfiction.net, back in 2015:

    This is an excellent fic. In part because I knew nothing about either Rurouni Kenshin or Nightlife (a role-playing game from 1990; kind of a precursor to Vampire: The Masquerade, from what I understand) when I first read this, and yet I loved this story. Honestly, although the Urban Legends series and Embers come a close second, this and its sequel, Witchy Woman, are my favorite of Vathara's works. (I kind of consider them one long work; there really isn't much of a break in the action between them.)
