Ok, so, I found this REALLY GREAT fic on Ao3 and now I'm obsessed with it (Note, I didn't write this but I just HIGHLY recommend it) :
Mere words cannot describe this masterpiece in a way that does it justice, but I will try.
Basically, a frail individual forced to spend increasing amounts of time sleeping due to ever worsening chronic fatigue syndrome escapes their limited reality by re-creating the world of Covenant and Prometheus in their dreams.
They intend to influence events from the films and try to give David a redemption arc by steering him down a better path. So, self insert but very cleverly done.
The protagonist goes on a long journey of first becoming our beloved sociopathic android's friend, then his unwilling assistant in his unethical experiments, and then his test subject.
Some prior knowledge of lucid dreaming might be useful. The protagonist's dream world is so vivid and consistent that the Scheherazade-esque story within a story aspect did not break my immersion in the narrative at all.
This is for folks who like the darker/horror aspects of the films.
Anyhow, if nothing else, you could get a good chuckle seeing me fan-girling out in the comments of every chapter. Because I swear to God guys. This is the best thing I have ever read in my life.
I just feel like people NEED to see this story and this author needs more recognition lol.
I haven't read it but I totally understand that feeling of joy when you've discovered something that you really like.
