Hi there everyone
I've recently stumbled across Andromeda fics, and felt I had to recommend the "Will to Power" series by Angel and Orinthain. Set in an AU where the Dylan Hunt in it is a descendant of the original (who looks just like him of course) 300 years after thefall of the Commonwealth- no ship frozen near black hole- and the Andromeda is controlled by Tyr and a Nietzchean crew.
Harper, Beka, Trance, and Dylan are on the Maru which is captured, and the Alpha male captain-Tyr- takes them prisoner. This is an Andromeda universe where the Nietzcheans must have triumphed. Tyr is instantly attracted to Harper- but can only think of humans within a master-(sex) slave relationship at first. Harper- a former Nietzchean slave- hates them.
Tyr is arrogant, dominant,focussed.
Harper-still a genius- is stubborn, feisty.
There's a good secondary pairing, with Dylan Hunt being aggressively seduced by a descendant of Gaheris Rhade who looks just like the original- despite being Beka's mate.
Its a good, imaginative series. My only complaints are there TOO MUCH SEX (Yes, you can have too much in a slash fic. Thereby decreasing the dramatic and sexual tension at times)If they'd halved the number of sexual encounters between Tyr and Harper it would have been more incendiary. And I'd have preferred a butcher Harper.
Like Clio, I get irritated when the brainy/smaller guy is feminized by writers. Watching the actual programmes, Harper is tiny but with a hell of a lot of attitude.
But its a good read for all that, and its over at the Andromeda Uncovered website.
