Title: Stalker Zero Author: TheannaTheWhite Rating: T Genre: Adventure/Supernatural Status: Work in Progress Fandom: Familiar of Zero/S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Summary: Failing the Springtime Familiar Summoning was fate for Louise de la Valliére, but nothing could have prepared her for the consequences. While Tristain becomes a twisted shadow of its former self, Louise finds herself in a world where nearly everything is out to kill her and the fabric of reality has been warped beyond recognition. Welcome to the Zone, Louise. Link: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9250630/1/Stalker-Zero One of the more Familiar of Zero fics, this involves Louise (and eventually others) reverse summoned to the Zone. No Saito in this fic at all, by the looks of it (hard to see how he could end up in Chernobyl in the first place anyway). Siesta, who had also been reverse summoned, ends up acting as a mentor/best-friend to Louise from the beginning. Siesta seems virtually unrecognizable, personality-wise, from her canon characterization, but there's a good reason for why that's the case. Somewhat of a 'loss of innocence' fic, in that Louise is quickly forced to readjust her priorities. Magic does make an appearance in the Zone, but it's relatively few and far between, since Louise doesn't end up coming with her wand. I'd give it a 4.5/5, for just how enjoyable the story is in general, the Louise/Siesta interactions (non-romantic, thus far anyway), and Louise's gradual breakdown. The Zone isn't a place for 16-year old girls and this fic does a good job demonstrating it without becoming overly angsty. Very action-packed too, as one might expect of the Zone.
