Reactions and Reviews

Just an unashamed fluff, for once, a relief from all the angst. Can't summarise it other than saying it's pure sex-comedy, and none the worse for that. [1]

STORY: Come as You Are

MUSE OF FIRE RESPONSIBLE: M. Fae Glasgow writing as Emma Scot

HAS POOR VILA BEEN DRAGOONED INTO THIS SHITSHOW? Blake hits on other people but not really

WHY ARE BLAKE AND AVON DOOMED THIS WEEK? I guess Blake is too homophobic and too about a kind of schoolboy gay sex that ISN’T GAY!! But then in his mind he’s like–‘gosh, I could get used to holding you in public’, etc., so the grim IT CAN NEVER BE tone when Blake’s desires are contrasted with Avon’s wish for a romantic relationship is unintentionally hilarious, bc like… dude this is such a fucking ‘How Relationships Develop’ problem? One partner is more romantically interested, the other more sexually interested, and with time this balance is shifting. Idk what to tell you mate, it seems likely to work out fine, but I don’t think the story believes this. (As I told a friend: Blake’s just like ‘oh all RIGHT I’m over my homophobia, maybe I could even hold you in public omg that would be SO good *shit*’ and the story is like ‘dooomed, doooooooomed!!!’)

EDITOR’S NOTE: none

PROSE: p normal

OVERALL: short, some weird ‘Blake sexually harassing Cally when he can’t get it from Avon even though it’s only been weeks’, and Blake’s GREAT PROBLEM in this is that he ‘uses Avon for sodomy!!’ so…

It’s not a bad fic (though Avon gets seemingly-accidentally drawn a bit camp?), but it’s not a good one. [2]
