Reactions and Reviews

MUSE OF FIRE RESPONSIBLE: M. Fae Glasgow writing as Edi N. Burgh

HAS POOR VILA BEEN DRAGOONED INTO THIS SHITSHOW? vila is safe

WHY ARE BLAKE AND AVON DOOMED THIS WEEK? their love is weakness and sentimentality and a sure road to death (so are they never going to love anyone ever, then? or is it THEM? &sometimes it arguably causes them to do things that preserve their lives so–no you know what fuck it)

EDITOR’S NOTE: BLESSEDLY NAKED (Maybe I’m unfair about author’s notes–the tone I hate was perhaps really normal at the time, and pre-lj possibly this was one of your few opportunities to communicate to other fans *as yourself* and to set the personality of a publication? I still hate what they do with it, but maybe that’s WHY.)

PROSE: fine

OVERALL: I don’t hate this fic. They love each other and know it but think it’s a bad idea so have spontaneous sex via a proxy. Tbh I think that would… overflow like the real thing, and am not invited to consider /why/ This Can Never Be in a rational, engaged, adult manner, but I like that they have feelings for one another and no one gets raped.[1]
