I can't rec in this fandom without reccing stories from Tarlan. She is an amazing (and luckily very prolific) writer, who has by far written the most Michael Biehn character stories of any writer. And not only about his well-known work, but about some of his hardly-known movies as well. I'll be reccing more of her later on, but for now I want to start with a small story of unrequited love.

Pairing:  not really, just one man's wish
Length: short

Why this must be read:
The movie Megiddo tells a biblical story about the devil, in human form (Stone Alexander, played by Michael York), trying to take over the world. One of those opposing him is the brother of this human incarnation, David Alexander, vice-president and later president of the US.

I'm not a fan of the movie, but I am a fan of Michael Biehn's portrayal of David Alexander, and I'm a fan of this small story, where one of his men (Col. Rick Howard) sees David pray for strength on a hillside, just before he takes off to confront his brother by himself, hoping to stop a full-out war. Tarlan beautifully mixes the thoughts and feelings of this man with the biblical aspects of the movie and makes it into a plea for tolerance and love.

Thy Kingdom come
