Story Summary: Bruce meets a young man named Peter in a bookstore. A young man who seems to be researching how radiation can be used to enhance the human body. “That sounds like a terrible idea. How about we…um…get some coffee and talk about it?”
gammathetaalpha’s thoughts: This one-shot is a heartwarming little story about Bruce meeting an entirely average college student in a book store. The young man seems to be researching ways to heal or strengthen the human body using gamma radiation. Bruce sees the potential disaster, and invites the boy for coffee to persuade him out of a similar fate to his.
I especially liked it because of the friendship that develops between Peter and Bruce. Both are nerds with quiet personalities (identities) and they get along well. The author did a wonderful job of emphasising this canon quality.
The story ends with a feeling like it only has just begun. Personally, I like this quality, because it’s like giving the imagination a triple shot of espresso: your mind goes crazy imagining all that could happen next. The author has said that she has no intention to do any more on the story. I would love for her to expand, but I believe that the story itself is fine.
Overall, this story deserves a read. It may be short, but there is plenty of quality packed into the little cupcake;)
