Why this must be read:
I missed this month's crossover day, so I hope it's ok I fit one in now.

It's always interesting to see the worlds of fandom and classic literature collide. JennyO puts a clever spin on the classic norse tale by shifting the perspective of the story to Grendel, making the monster somewhat different than legend traditionally portrays. She skillfully keeps the tone, and some of the rhythm, of the old oral poem, especially the Norse fatalism; adapting Wyrd and legend to a Slayer's duty makes for a strong, bleak, and impressively executed read.
