And so it comes to an end.... I've enjoyed driving the van for this particular small fandom very much. And who knows, maybe some writers out there will get inspired to tackle one of the many great characters Michael Biehn as well has brought to live on the screen. If you do, I'm sure Tarlan is more than happy to give them a good home on her fabulous website.

My last rec is going to be a little different. Where my previous recs were rather in character with the movie or show they were written about, this one actually isn't. It's... a fairy tale I guess, but of the more horrorlike kind.

Fandom: MICHAEL BIEHN CHARACTERS -  Lt. Hiram Coffey from The Abyss
Pairing: Hiram Coffey/OFC, Hiram Coffey/OMC,
Length: 22.000 words 
Author on LJ: -
Author's website: Trisha's stories are on the Phoenix Michael Biehn archive.

Why this must be read:
This story actually has nothing to do with The Abyss, in fact, that whole movie is no more than a nightmare Coffey had. He and Bud Brigman are friends here and Brigman drags a reluctant Coffey off for a vacation in England, to help him recuperate after a disastrous SEAL operation. And then it turns into this wonderful supernatural story I just adore. Very well written, with two great guys (not just Coffey, but Bud Brigman as well!) and a fairy that has nothing to do with the little winged kind of children's books.

Go read and enjoy!

High time to continue these recs! I've already recced stories based on Michael Biehn's characters from The Terminator and Aliens, so I thought the next should be about Lt. Hiram Coffey from the movie The Abyss, the third movie Michael made with James Cameron at the wheel.

Fandom: MICHAEL BIEHN CHARACTERS - Lt. Hiram Coffey from The Abyss
Pairing: none
Length: not very long
Author on LJ: [info]tarlanx

Author's website: the wonderful Phoenix Michael Biehn Archive and others, found through her Fiction archive
Warning: Coffey's thoughts about Lindsey Brigman aren't exactly flattering.

Why this must be read:
The movie The Abyss stops rather abruptly - an ending many hold against it. But in Tarlan's story, that ending suddenly turns interesting when she explores what might have happened after. She does that exploring through the POV of... Lt. Hiram Coffey. How is that possible, you might ask, because didn't he die? Actually, reading her story it suddenly isn't farfetched at all that he might still be around.

Her story isn't like the movie, all action, but very introspective and facing questions like 'is it ever right to kill?' This all through the thoughts of a man trying to come to grips with a psychosis and what that madness made him do.

The value of life
