wrote me fic for Christmas, which was super yay-making because I was totally not expecting it.
And it's not just a drabble or ficlet, either. It's 4000 words of fic. I looked at my reading list, and there's only been three Judewan fics written (that I could find) this year, full stop, and together, I doubt they add up to 4000 words. I didn't count the year before, but it's probably about the same. I mean, I love short fic, yes, but there's so little Judewan to begin with, that something longer is just...wow. *clutches to chest, bouncing*
It's really good, too, and set in a world similar to the one helenish
created in Take Clothes Off as Directed
, which if you haven't read it, is a world where D/s is the norm, and there's a very rigid system where everyone is either dom or sub.
The fic is very well-written, although it needs a Britpick and there are a few bits that could stand to be smoothed out, but she rushed to post it for me before she went off on vacation, and will do a second edit later, so I imagine when I actually get around to adding it to my recs list, that won't even be an issue. (My, that's a long sentence...)
Anyway! Because I loved this fic so much, and I loved the commentary Ruth wrote on my own fic last month, I've decided to do a DVD-style commentary on this. :) Helens also wrote her own commentary here
, which I waited until I'd done mine to read. It's funny to see how we commented on several of the same things the same way. XD( Eminence Front with commentary )
