the_constant is home to an absolutely amazing multi-part Desmond fic written by the amazing team of infinitenesmith and hauntermooneyes called The Universal Constant. An excerpt from their own Introduction states: It's been a little less than a year since all the problems have been sorted out with the survivors of Oceanic 815, the mysterious island on which they were marooned, and its other inhabitants. But Desmond Hume is finding it difficult to re-adjust to life. He's plagued by nightmares and disturbing visions. He always feels as if he's being watched. Is it paranoia, or something far more sinister?

Begun before the airing of the acclaimed S4 episode entitled THE CONSTANT, this lushly detailed and perfectly voiced story is posted in long, luxurious chapters which are a joy to read. You can wrap yourself up in them and settle in with a cuppa, as a real treat to yourself. The Universal Constant is a Crossover fic, melding Desmond, Penny, Daniel, and other Lost characters with the nasty, time-meddling Auditors from Discworld. Don't know about Discworld, or what an Auditor is? Never mind - I didn't either, and I'm in love with this series! Brother Campbell and Mrs. Hawking also make rather important appearances, as do the two baddest of the bad boys from Lost canon.

I can't emphasise how wonderfully The Universal Constant is written, how the character voices and actions take over to the extent that you feel you are watching and hearing rather than reading, how perfectly the Auditors fit into the revelation of what has been happening to Desmond for so long. I wouldn't be surprised to see Darlton bring them into play in the show before all is said and done.

In fact, I keep looking for Discworld book titles to appear on the Island bookshelves!
