Beam me up

fic: dark clouds gathering

My first fic of the decade, and it's the one where Simon fast-pentas Alys. This one involved a sudden panic this morning when I realised I'd messed up some of the canon details, but working out what really happens in canon has helped me figure out a bit more of what was going on, so that was helpful in the end.

So here it is:
