A couple of people recommended A Voice in the Darkness to me by Katinki. I highly suggest reading it. It's not nice. It's not HEA. It's a big ole bucket of ice water tossed on you at 3:00am. I loved it. As opposed to writing all of this over again, I'm just going to copy-paste my review (which does included ending spoiler).
This was simply fantastic. So glad to see something out of the ordinary in the FF world. It was gritty, raw, well written and not overly concerned with a lot of pointless description. It’s a big a slap in the face, which people need a lot of the time. Honestly, if I was going to offer a suggestion, I think you could have been more graphic, though it is fine how it is. The ending was absolutely perfect – everything from her thoughts to his reaction. Of course he assumed she would shoot him – it’s all about him, isn’t it?
I don't know what inspired this. I avoid drama like the plague. I’m too old for that shit. Some people said this was in response to something I’m writing – no idea if that is true or not. Doesn’t matter. If it is, I’m glad started that fic, because if someone’s misapprehensions (had to get one of SMs big words in there – ha) regarding what my story is about, ended up encouraging you to write and post this, I’ve done far more than I ever expected to do with my fic - through you.
Thanks for writing this. Thanks for painting something so beautifully ugly. I’ll be pimping the hell out of it.
