I Wanted to Hate This Fic
error_cascade | 6 months ago

Gabrielle Lawson is one of the old guard DS9 writers, and this fic is part of a broader Julian-Bashir-Must-Suffer universe with Christian themes and torture porn that I'm not particularly fond of. That being said, this story is a masterpiece. It's honestly informative and respectful. There are no magic fixes and the Holocaust isn't explained away as alien intervention. There's a bibliography, for crying out loud. The writing is well done and makes a difficult to stomach idea plausible (but no less difficult in other ways).
