    A beautifully written and fittingly solemn tribute to my dear departed family members. *sniff*

    (Actually, it's a very funny sestina.)

    Summary

    Stringer goes legit in the summer of ‘00. Looking back, Avon calls it a ‘vacation,’ like String was up in New York running dope in Little Baltimore or sent to Jessup on a gun charge. He doesn’t remember why - something about a deal gone bad or one too many bodies to hide in Leakin or just the game being the game.

    All of the Wire stories are wonderful this year, but this one is my favourite. It's a simple story, but a great one, and you can hear Stringer in every line.

    Summary

    Little Charles didn't remember when he became Little Charles. He didn't remember his first toddling steps towards his Dad. He didn't remember the first time his Mom sat him down in front of a TV so she could have a God Damned moment to herself. He liked Sesame Street. Everyone was nice.

    Little Charles knew the exact moment he fell in love with Ivy.

    Wooooow, is this ever well done. The author handles all of the terribly complex emotions with with such care, and it's impeccably written, too. It certainly won't be to the taste of the fans who prefer to think of incest as a sexytimes trope, but it's very much to mine.

    Okay, this is something I've been wishing for for years without even realizing I'd been wishing for it: serious, well researched political gen RPF. And it's just so well done, too! The author manages to make not just the narrator, but each of his foils a real, well-rounded, fully human individual with both flaws and something that makes him worth a second look.
