Fanfic Wednesday: “Survivor’s Guilt”


Survivor’s Guilt” by  (AO3)

Pairings: Bellamy Blake/Clarke Griffin 
Word Count: 102,671

Author’s Summary

“There’s no one else to live for anymore.” Clarke utters those words without too much emotion. They’ve had time over the years to reflect on all the people ripped away from their lives. It’s no longer a fierce, stabbing pain, just a kind of endless ache that surges and subsides with every breath they take. After all their efforts, they failed. The story of the Skai Kru would die with them. “We’re the last of our people.”

Bellamy finally looks up at her tone of voice and after a pause he says, slowly, “We don’t have to be.”

(Life After.)

My Thoughts

Having read nearly every The 100 fanfic out there a few months ago, I cycled back through recently to see what new additions there were on AO3. Lo and behold, I discovered this gem that tugged at my heartstrings and made me ever so glad that I fell for this beautiful ship.

In a twist of fate, all of the Sky People die from one thing or another, leaving Clarke and Bellamy alone. The last of their people, they have to depend on each other as they mourn, survive, try to start anew, and seek something to live for. And of course, there is a healthy dosage of smut because, hey, if they have babies, then they aren’t the last of the Sky People, now are they? Good excuse for Bellarke sex, if you ask me.

May we meet again,

The Collected Mutineer
