Reactions and Reviews

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


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]
