    Cold and precise and full of intense desire; hits exactly on what it is to be that horribly focused on laying bare a secret.

    Simon and River and the names they should really have for the people they should really be. Out of *everybody* in the show the Tam siblings were coded Chinese the most, and this terse, smart story makes me ache for what might have been.

    Summary

    I was called "inscrutable" by a man who had never smiled at me in an entire year, who sometimes responded to my "Good morning," with a little tip of his patrician head, as though speech was something he'd have to hold in reserve for someone who counted.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A cathartic and beautifully-written story that redirects the colonial gaze of the source material without being pedantic. Instead, it's wry and raw, insightful and compassionate, and can't be recommended highly enough.

    Zuko's rule is lived in bowstring-tight tension and sacrifice; nothing ever comes easy, does it.

    Lennonism and McCartneyism in jabs and kisses, endlessly circling and coming together. It's not pretty, but it's hot and it's them in the ways that count.

    this is a scream: Hyacinth Bouquet discovers the internet! I could absolutely hear all of this dialogue in my head, from Hyacinth's nasal pronouncements to Richard's put-upon suggestions.

    exactly the sort of tightly-planned batshittery that the show was all about! The Leela voice in this is astonishingly accurate and the whole thing is a delight.

    I felt almost guilty reading this, because it's like peeking into Morticia's love-diary. Strange, ghoulish, and delicately erotic.

    Oh, wow. The books were always a little darker, more supernatural and adult than Anne of Green Gables, and this story taps straight into that black-blood vein to uncover the boys' realities. It's beautifully done.
