… I think it’s the earliest thing you’ve written, so yeah a few rough edges and you might get a splinter if you walked on it barefoot. But it’s a reflection of how good you are that you managed to have interesting character development, and something resembling a plot from what was essentially a premise common to the most base wankfest fodder. And whilst my interest in it nowadays is as the resident concritter. It’s useful to know where an author has failed to develop and hence where i need to be mean. But point is that was the OP wante something Lillyish and that was what came of the top of my head… Don’t know why but the rest of the ones i thought of are either unfinished, or are no longer public which would’ve been unhelpful to the OP. Bottom line sorry WB but you earned the compliment
BTW on original subject Surrogate the 2007 SOTY is also in that vein, also Tekabell’s Molly’s Deep Dark Secret and Cultural Differences same author also have some of it. Not as well executed to be sure but I don’t think we’ll get that unless Miss Bean resurfaces down the line.
