Reviews: Cog In The Machine
Calling this a parody is a shame. Read as a serious fic, it comes off as a lighthearted romance sprinkled with a bit of selfirony here and there. Read as a parody it's... A very stealthy parody.
This is what occurs when stories are permitted to escape from their author. It was supposed to be succinct, but by the author's own admission, the characters got away from her. (This is a good thing.)
