Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

Exeunt by BonesOfBirdWings

'"Everyone will be born, everyone has died," Rosencrantz murmurs to himself. There's something... something he's forgotten. / There must have been a moment – / "I think it's the other way around," Guildenstern says, at the same time Rosencrantz blurts out, "Let's not go."' Dark meditation on the nature of fiction, the role of the audience and the inevitability of fate

Proof by Sonya

It's easy to write meta-fic for R&G, but this struck me as particularly clever

Steal My Breath by Luna

'He wakes before sunrise, his heart pounding. Something has touched his face in the dark. A cat, he guesses, walking over his pillow.' Clever brief prequel to the play, with a perfect ending
