1995: Some Comments by Fans

Tell you what, next time, let's just skip the middleman. I'll just cut my heart out and send it to Doreen, she can stomp on it, chop it into tiny pieces, dip it in brine, twist every drop of blood from it, then sew it back up and send it back to me...

I don't know where to begin. Doreen Tracy is becoming a serious addiction for me, as far as I'm concerned, she is one of the best damn writers of fan fiction I've ever had the pleasure of reading. To paraphrase a Gumpism: Doreen's like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get...but you can rest assured that it will curl your toes. Her stories aren't as "safe" as some other writers, she likes to play in deep waters, flirt with the dark side of humanity. You read at your own risk. But more often than not, you get something incredibly wonderful. [1]

Being a romantic, I cannot take Doreen Tracy's stories at all. She seems to be in the M. Fae Glasgow School of Writing — not so much entertainment as shock value. Each consecutive story seems to get more and more hurtful, to see how far she can go without actually killing Sam. As a nurse myself, I can attest to how physically dangerous some of the things she's had Sam live though can be to even those experienced in this type of relationship. I have to wonder if she sees the same Sam I saw, who was raised to believe in himself, and that there was nothing he wouldn't stand up for or to, and not need Al to save him each and every time.[2]
