I can't even think of any other fics to compare it to. It's so dark and it's so far outside my usual comfort zones and OMG THE WARNINGS ARE THERE FOR A REASON PEOPLE, but I don't even care because JFC THIS FIC. I read the first six chapters this morning, and when I was done I literally put my head down and hugged myself for a few minutes, just trying to reel myself back in a little bit.
Every once in a while I'll come across a fic that is so good it makes me realize all over again exactly how good fanfic can truly be. So far, this is one of those fics. However, I am only a quarter of the way through. Let's see what the next 150,000 words are like. I am vaguely terrified to read them, and yet there's no doubt that I'm going to.
I need one of those "My body is ready" gifs right about now. Ah, there's one.
