Reviews: Lotus

Comment by Windsong12

The middle ground between a deeply researched, angsty fic and a light summer read, "Lotus" is awonderful take on the important points of Vietnam's history using Flower Motifs. In this troper's opinion, though only a oneshot, this fic really captures what it means to be the nation of Vietnam, and all the pressure put on her by the men in her lives. Vietnam's relationships with the four are well-written, and her lighthearted relationship with her sister Taiwan, though only vaguely touched upon, provides a nice contrast.
