I am not terribly fond of Goliath/Elisa. I am fine with Goliath on his own, I really like Elisa on her
own, and I loved their friendship, but I kind of wish that the subtext hadn't become text.
However, as is probably obvious by now, I do
like many things about this show, including the intricate story lines, well-executed action scenes, a whole batch of awesome characters, and the way that the series uses mythology. (The world tour that took up most of Season 2 may have had its problems, but I really appreciated how it not only included but respected non-European myths and folktales.) However, my absolute favorite element of the story has to be the entire extended Xanatos family, including ( spoilery character identities )
, and their completely believable arc. I may have some related fic kicking about in my head.Jekyll
Belated rec is belated, but I remain very pleased to see more fic in this fandom! To Be King
is a fabulous Hyde's-eye view of the world, set early in the series.
On a somewhat related note, if you are at all interested in the phenomenon of teen paranormal romance (even if your interest extends only as far as extreme mockery, which is completely understandable, as some of it is extremely mockable
), you should go have a look at this article: Sexy Teenaged Werewolves in Love
. It starts by examining the recent MTV remake/spinoff of a 1980s werewolf movie (neither of which I've seen), and diverts into some of the trends in YA supernatural romance and how they could be applied to non-lycanthropic, non-bloodsucking movie monsters. Hilarious, clever, and also... potentially inspiring? (And, yes, it really is somewhat related. Read through to the end.)X-Menxmenbigbang

That aside, I am leaning heavily toward doing Camp NaNoWriMo
in August rather than July, though this Friday may bring a surprise burst of inspiration.
