Review in No. 39401468
I wanted to drop it before I finished chapter 1, but I skimmed as far as chapter 4 before I actually dropped it. The Twilight has PTSD now plot has bothered me since Hard Reset and the transition in to a strangely lesbian-focused SoL hasn't been the best. Long story short, the fic is no longer focusing on what I'm reading it for and what's been put in its place hasn't pleased me. Has it been occasionally funny? Sure, but sacrifices have clearly been made for the genre shift to work. For example, the way that they're stopping our new temporally-displaced friend from learning damaging info about the future is so obviously stupid that it seems forced. I've been assured that the sequels only get worse from here.
