Just under 20k divided over 5 chapters and a epilogue. *face palm* Have I mentioned I don't like short parts? Because I don't like short parts. And the clicking. And the reloading new pages. Grr.

na, not to mention that the chapters are only linked through the masterpost :(

But the other nonnie is right, I usually enjoy badfic, but this one's not really entertaining me and I can't put my finger on the reason.

Urggghhh. Sloughing through this is taking me longer than I thought. But I know why it's so slow for me, at least. The author does way too much through character dialogue; especially exposition. And it's not even interestng dialogue, but dialogue that you'd expect from cheesy movie filled with Cool Dudes/Cops. ehhhh.

And there's this one bit, Where they summarize what going to happen with narration. And then lets it happen.


“I don’t understand, but I also don’t have the time to sort this out.” Brian paused, annoyed, then fired off another question as he reached for his pocket book. “Except for your neighbor, did you know any of the other deceased?”

Like that.


Or uses it to tell you about things that the reader wasn't informed of earlier. Like this in the second part:


Jared sat across his partner and frowned. He knew the information they got from Ackles had shed a troublesome light on things, but it also meant they were making headway into this case. “Did you notice he never took off his sunglasses?”

Hint: Sunglasses where never mentioned previously. Yes, it was in the picture, but if I have to rely on pictures to tell me a story, that's cheating man.



I don't know if I'll actually finish it within a week even if I'm halway through because there are so. many. plot. holes. @_____@ I keep going off into la la land wondering how to go about hooking up the Js without having so many glaringly obvious issues.

For me, with h/c badfic, I like OTT comfort after the massive badfic whumpage. So when you've got Jensen, who's held captive and tortured for most of the fic and yet IS TOTALLY FINE afterward, in fact, poor Jared needs the comfort, doesn't do it for me.

The art is unexciting.

This story is nice and long, so if you just want something long to read this is a good choice. Other than that, it's kind of disappointing. Jensen and Jared spend most of the fic apart, so their relationship never seems that believable even with destined mating bonds. (If that's a kink of yours, it doesn't kick in until near the end and isn't really a reason to read this.) It's pretty plotty, but most of the world-building takes the form of exposition and most of that is to Jared's cop partner, who I think is an OC (Brian?). Besides the exposition, the plot consists of OTT Jensen!whump by an OTT cult that seems to be the author's attempt to describe what would happen if the Catholic Church was run by the Ku Klux Klan. I did appreciate that the author mixed things up a bit by having Jared be the less dominant personality, but Jensen being the one who's kidnapped and hurt. Overall, though, between the frequent exposition dumps and the OTT-ness of the cult violence, I stopped and started this fic several times, because I kept losing interest. There's some SPaG problems, as well.
