Bland. Seeing the nuggets of wisdom dropped by Angel was classy and gave neat looks at supporting character relationships, but some of these seemed extremely out of place. Schwartzwald in particular struck me as more of a buffoon than on the parent work. Nothing special to see here, IMO.
Angel becomes slightly OOC in select parts of this fic, but for the most part, this was an interesting read. I enjoyed encountering the character relationships and seeing them explored, and its rare to see such attentions to character dynamics like this, particularly with minor cast members. A highly worth-while read.
