[Blessed are the Meek]: This is the third story in the Grievous Bodily Harm trilogy, entitled 'Blessed Are the Meek,' and it's in AS TWO L3 NOTES. It's also, I gather, known as the infamous catheter story. The story squicked me the first couple of times I read it, because the kink in the story isn't a kink of mine. After the immediate reaction, though, I was able to look behind the actions to the characters' reactions to the situation. And from that point of view, it's a lovely story. It's not the kinky stuff that's the basis of the trilogy, after all; it's the story of building a relationship. The first story shows the transition from friends to lovers; the second story shows how, even though they love each other, the relationship isn't complete for them without the BDSM element; and the third story shows a snapshot of a mature, settled relationship that still has room for growth. Or that's how I see it, at least. [1]
