Wordes and Artses Recs!
Snarry Games recs!
Anyone who knows me and my fic preferences, knows that warnings which might include Genderbending and Het Sex would normally get a pass from me. And I have to be completely honest and tell you that I read this story with a sense of duty, though it helped that it was written by synn. Basically, going in I was glad it had less than 3500 words.
DAMN if I wasn't blown away AGAIN, for the second time in these Games.
It was nothing like I had expected, reinforcing my recent realization that while "Warnings" can be helpful, judging a story and it's potential by them is incredibly foolish---something I've been guilty of in the past, but something that I will no longer practice. I would have missed Perfica's wonderful fic, and I would have missed this gem too.
And while I do this little PSA about not putting too much stock in the warnings, I
encourage beg you to give this one a chance, if you haven't already. This story by synn (aka ThreeSidedOrchid) is cleverly done and beautifully worded and unlike anything I've ever read before. Took me completely by surprise and won me over, absolutely.
Trust me. Go read Thrice Turned Then show her the love she deserves.
Once you're done reading take a look at this delicious work of art. Admittedly, I am biased, as the artist has become a friend and I watched this taking shape, but that bias does not make it any less true that this is YUMMY. Her art is amazing to me, a non-artist: the textures and the shading and the details... I don't know how she does it. And there's frosting. Make sure you gaze at it long enough...
Buttercream by veridian_dair will hit your sweet tooth just right. Mmmmmmmm
