It's commenters are obviously the WORST and a few of it's heavier posts have a tendancy to drift to 1500- 2000 words*, but increasingly I'm enjoying the Awl. Especially for pieces like this which passes a soberly critical eye over fanfiction derived from Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter novels while floating a few interesting comments about the the darker Romance fiction publications and where their writers come from. That was a disgustingly long and incomprehensible sentence, wasn't it? I'm hope you got out early on.
