Another fanfic gem  
"...she soon found herself at the feet of the iron fist of Sheriff Vaisey of Nottingham."

*wipes tears of laughter from eyes*...

Oh, I needed that... but wait, there's more!

"Blowing the candle out, the room plunged into darkness, freezing instantly as her mind flash backed..."

o_O - The room blew the candle out and froze instantly? "flash backed"?

Best part? This fic already has 2 positive comments - bet you can't guess which canon character the OC is making out with...

That's right, she's dragged from the dungeons, he tells her he's going to have his wicked way with her and despite all the hints at past abuse "she felt herself begin to long for him to claim her as his"...

If I didn't laugh I think I'd vomit.

It's not my ship, I admit it, but I appreciate what other people see in it and will happily read and enjoy it when it's done well.

This is not one of those occasions.

In fact I'm sure even some of the most hardcore fans of this ship must read fics like this and just cringe.

Preaching to the choir, bb!

Why do you think Guy is all of a sudden featuring more in Denial? We realised nobody was reading it. (Latest chapter - 0 comments - hardly inspiring) Now the chapters without him in seem to just get skipped and it's really disheartening even though we're still having lots of fun writing it (I have about a dozen chapters just waiting to go when the Gang get to Queen Eleanor's ;) )

Fwiw, I've been reading Denial here at LJ, but I've been very, very bad about leaving comments. I should get on that. Fandom = reciprocity, after all.

(Also, I'm totally reading your current Little John fic too. I just wanted to wait until you finish it to comment on all the chapters, because I intend to read the whole thing start to finish first).

*looks guilty*

Hmm - I've been very bad about commenting on "Passages" as well... (and I loved the reunions in the latest chapter).

Reciprocity indeed!

No, it's cool. No guilt. :)

Like I said, I'm writing it mostly for myself, and the alerts and traffic stats at FFN remind me that plenty of people read it w/o commenting.

I did read the last chapter of Denial. ;) Just haven't gotten around to commenting yet. And yes, I do read the Guy-less chapters too ... I actually liked the LJ/Legrand gambling quite a bit. Not too fond of the Much/Carter slash TBH.

Is it the Much/Carter specifically or the slash in general?

Honestly, I'm not a great fan of slash, but I've read some Robin/Much and Guy/Robin stories that I liked very much. The Much/Carter pairing doesn't do it for me for some reason. (But I do like the hints of LJ/Legrand, and I think Denial is the first story that kinda, sorta sold me on Guy/Allan "like that.")

Thanks! I suppose if your story's central pairing is one people aren't grabbed by, there's not much you can do but it's also sort of reassuring to hear that that's the reason as opposed to disliking the writing or the plot or anything else.

Glad to know you like the hinting... It'll take a while to come to the boil... ;)

Well, plot-wise, I can't deny being a tad disappointed that you guys went and married Marian to Robin... ;) but I will keep reading.
