[personal profile] thesilentpoet wrote two poems linking two fandoms.  The first fandom is for Schrodinger's Heroes,  a science fiction shared world with material by myself and several other people.  The second is her own series 64-squared, which blends aspects of scholarship and adventure.

"Lior's Dream" touches on issues of physics and family.  Sometimes when you find what you want ... it's not what you should have, after all.

"Hal's Nightmare" is about friendship, family, and traveling.  No matter how hard it gets, you keep going.

Together, the two poems cover the same central issue -- separation of two sisters -- from opposite perspectives.  Lior and Hal each have their own reaction to each other's absence, and to the Schrodinger team.  So they aren't in direct contact but are still involved in the same storyline.  The two poems therefore function like the sides of a single coin.  This is useful in serial writing because it allows the coverage of a single event in parallel rather than strictly sequential terms, although in this case, it is clear that Lior met the team first.
