Lotrips WIP rec #7: This Is the Way the World Ends

This Is the Way the World Ends by sema427 (formerly semaphore27). Primarily Dom/Billy, supporting cast includes Elijah/Orlando, Sean Astin/OFC and Viggo/OFC.

I'm not a horror fan, but the lush intensity of the characters and events in here makes it utterly wonderful. Sema summarized it like this:
In this story, the world of Lotrips mingles with that of Stephen King’s The Stand, with the timelines bumped slightly into the future. In a nutshell, the basic premise of the book is: after the population of the US has been devastated by a "super flu" the survivors divide into two groups, those who follow Mother Abigail, and represent good, and those who are drawn to Randall Flagg, a demon.
I am such a wuss that it kinda squicks me to even paste those words, and the sadness of the story makes me cry in places, but it's ultimately hopeful.

Warnings: explicit violence, nuclear explosion, partner and child death, self-sacrifice, excruciating pain...
