Reactions and Reviews

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


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]
