Threnody by [personal profile] bop_radar
This vid shows how awesome Nikita and Alex are, what they went through, their struggles inside Division, and how they get through it all. It's filled with darkness, angst, joy, and badassery. In the end people will be asking themselves why they haven't been watching!

SHE WALKS SOFTLY, BUT SHE CARRIES A BIG GUN by [livejournal.com profile] readthesubtext [via [personal profile] eatsscissors]
A tribute to the BAMF that is Nikita/Maggie Q. You'll see her fighting with her fists, her guns, and anything handy, including the very chains that held her captive. She absolutely will not stop, ever, until your ass has been kicked.
