Reactions and Reviews

MUSE OF FIRE RESPONSIBLE: M. Fae Glasgow writing as Cally Donia

HAS POOR VILA BEEN DRAGOONED INTO THIS SHITSHOW? Vila

WHY ARE BLAKE AND AVON DOOMED THIS WEEK? Avon is ‘terrifyingly, frighteningly’ attracted to Blake, but Blake’s Cause, and Vila is easier. Blake is a player, and maybe straight, as well?

EDITOR’S NOTE: freedom

PROSE: I find these all really hard to get through. Like, my brain slides off them and I have to MAKE MYSELF read. They also do real, kind of lasting damage to my love for/interest in this pairing. They make me not want to write, that’s for sure, and they make me question fandom as an enterprise, even though I can muster logical defences for it.

Is ‘not by a long chalk’ Avon-appropriate? I feel like it’s not, quite. Vila’s miles too cockney in this one.

OVERALL: So this is an ‘I wake up–what did I do last night?! Was it Blake?? Oh, it’s Vila next to me! *they shag again*’ story. It ought to have been two pages; it was 12. Poor man’s Sherlock Hammered tries to figure out what he did whilst wasted. This wasn’t interesting when I was in uni and it was my best friends doing the sussing. It is not more interesting eight years on. [1]
