So, FUNNY STORY, back around the same time that I started doing my weekly WIP status update posts, I also started doing What I’m Reading Wednesday posts, and then in mid-September I stopped doing the What I’m Reading posts and never started again and I am FINALLY GONNA TELL YOU WHY. AND ALSO WHAT I AM READING:an early name used for videophones
And the thing is, I read the first three stories in the series back in September and it just BLEW MY MIND?? and I knew I HAD TO write about it in my What I’m Reading post but I just COULD NOT EVEN FIND WORDS, because it’s just–
It’s like hardcore kink and surrealism had a baby, I guess? It just DIVES ON IN with Bucky sleeping on a table and Steve washing his mouth out with soap and spitting on him and WELL OKAY THEN, OFF WE GO, and by the time you get to Bucky fucking an arcade game and setting Steve a kinky ingredient sex challenge it’s just like. Well, yes, of course, this is how they roll, I’M IN.
Except, underneath the PROFOUND WEIRDNESS that is like nothing else I’ve read and the IN MEDIAS SUUUUPER HARDCORE D/S RELATIONSHIP LIKE HOLY SHIT MAN, there is so, so much love, and such a deeply intimate portrayal of a Bucky recovering along his own path, and a Steve who also has a lot of healing to do, and a love between them that makes it possible for them to be exactly this weird and brutal and just keep on going together, and it is gorgeous.
So–yeah. Ugh. It’s amazing. It’s brilliant. I know there are a million alarming tags on it–some of them gave me pause, I definitely passed it by while browsing one kink tag or another more than once–but, ugh, I am telling you, give it a whirl. It is so well done and also SO WEIRD in a way I cannot even do justice to. I NEED YOU TO READ THIS SO I CAN WAVE MY ARMS INARTICULATELY AT MORE PEOPLE ABOUT IT.
PLEASE. READ IT FOR ME. AND THEN COME YELL ABOUT IT. BECAUSE !!!!!!????!!!!!!
And now that I have FINALLY discharged my desperate need to rec this series (a fourth story came out and I read it just now, so it’s timely and everything) I will go back to updating you on a weekly basis about other stuff I read, but… I’ll do a separate post for that. This one definitely deserves it own.
