*resists temptation to read orlon_window* One serial fic is really sufficient for my brain at the moment. (Plus i need to do schoolwork and grad school apps.)
This is the first time i’ve really felt the writing style to be distinctively different. The first 4 episodes were all written by different people [okay fine, TBQ wrote 2], and often had different tones, but this is the first one to have a writing style that really strikes me as distinctively different.
