nopejr (a rocking fanfic writer in his own right), pointed to ztrin. Or rather, he linked to this little story of hers. I love writers who have ... "odd" (for lack of a better term) styles. ztrin also wrote this, which I'm in the middle of reading now.
Writing's such an amazing thing. I can't figure out how people write in different voices (paces, "distances" -- how do you sometimes hold the reader at a distance and sometimes draw them close in?). It's like people who sit down and just draw a masterpiece on a napkin -- wonderful to watch, and worthy of more than a little envy. :)
tersa, I was thinking about you in relations to fanfic earlier today: This (*points above*) is why I read fanfic. Yes, sometimes it's bad, yes, sometimes it's not totally on-canon, but there's some damned amazingly good stuff out there. Stories that make me laugh out loud, cry, and yell at my computer demanding more. It's really, really worth it. :)
