    "Just! Saving pretty girls in danger!" Gwen blurts out, desperately trying to deepen her voice an octave to disguise it. How is this her life?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A wonderfully funny reaction to unmasking a hero, and written with an excellent, unpretentious playfulness throughout.

    Deals significantly with issues of identity, queerness, and specifically trans status. In general, at their best being contemplative, focused, and sensitive, of which this one is a particular and strong example. (Also, the SAO 'fic, of all fandoms to find good and sensitive writing, and trans!Madoka).

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Not, perhaps, the most elegantly conceived or executed 'fic, and with a bent to melodrama, but nevertheless touching. I appreciate the determination to work with the characters long-term and not solve problems in a heartbeat, while also refusing to stick them in a rut and not develop them at all.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I can't call this series a fantastic stand-out in the categories I usually employ, but it's very well conceived and very well followed-through. Much craft, if perhaps a little less art than is my typical preference.

    Femslash with an eye to realism without losing a certain literary sense. Can be sweet, can be gently angsty in a wonderfully readable way.
