Summary: Alec had been working hard with Max to create the new Transgenic Nation, so it was a surprise when he vanished without trace. With the Transgenics trapped inside Terminal City, how could they send out help to track him down and bring him home? The Losers were still on the run, determined to put an end to Max and Wade's machinations when they spotted a familiar face on TV. It had been years since they'd been deployed alongside X5-494 but he'd always felt like one of their own, so maybe it was time to get back in touch. (Mature, Dark Angel/The Losers(movie))

Summary: Coming home for the first time in five years wasn't easy for Alec Singer. His Pops, Bobby Singer, always made sure Alec was welcome but fourteen years of homecoming hadn't erased what Manticore had taught him in ten. Still, it was good to be home again even if the circumstances were less than great. With nothing to lose, Alec and Bobby decided to let a pair of hunters in on their secret. Sam and Dean Winchester are less than thrilled to learn that the only family they had left had kept something from them, but there was a mystery to solve. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if the whole damn thing didn't come back to a place Sam and Dean were happy never to visit again, an asylum full of nightmares. And Roosevelt was only the first step of the journey (Sam/Dean, Alec/OC, NC-17, Dark Angel/Supernatural)

Just as Alec and Max are trying to decide what sort of 'relationship' they have, Logan and Max disappear with Max leaving a note that simply says, "I'm sorry".

Necessity demands that she learn all about herself and her past so that she is no longer a threat to them but Alec can't bring himself to tell her about their 'almost'. (Alec/Max, M15+)

Eventually the Gossamers chase him all the way back to Seattle, to Max's guilt and Alec's misery.

Made of Steel Made of Bone

Summary: Alec finds himself looking after two kids from the past. “What does it mean?” John asked. His fingertips brushed over the tattoo on Alec's neck and Alec made himself not flinch or break John's arm. It was a reflex. He wanted to lecture John on the dangers on sneaking up on him, but he let it slide. John was being comfortable in his space, it wasn't a bad thing. It wasn't John's fault either that Alec sometimes didn't know how to deal with a casual touch. And the tattoo was a painful reminder of all the things he wanted to forget, but couldn't. “It's a bar code what do you think it means?” Alec shoot back. “Bar codes are used to tag products, merchandise,” Cameron said in that unnerving calm voice of hers. Alec knew she didn't mean to offend. She didn't know better, it was how she was after all. She couldn't really change it either. “He's not a thing,” John said sharply. There were people out there that thought otherwise, Alec thought. “She's right. It shows what kind of merchandise I am.” (Alec/Cameron, Cameron/John, John/Alec/Cameron, R)

When the World Made Sense
Author: hunters_retreat
Artist: sillie82
Summary: Once upon a time, Logan Cale's life made sense. Maybe not to anyone else, but it did to him. That was before he'd ever heard of Manticore, or X-5's, and certainly before he found himself the head of the Trans-normal movement that had sparked after the explosive outing of transgenics in Terminal City. Two years of fighting for the cause had taken its toll though, and not just on Logan. Anti-trans groups put a price on their heads and none more so than for Alec McDowell.

Alec tried to act like none of it bothered him but Logan knew different. They were co-conspirators and stood shoulder to shoulder leading the movement. An offhanded comment has Logan thinking it's time for a change, for the movement and for himself. Will Logan's grand experiment - a self-sustaining farming community for humans and transgenics alike - give them the chance to make peace with the world or will it fail? Will it give Alec the chance to finally heal from his emotional scars that a life as a Manticore assassin left him? And will they both finally realize what they’ve been fighting for all along? (Alec/Logan, NC-17)
