Note: Velvet Venus here, no special icon this time, since it seems our paid time has run out while we weren't paying attention. Whoops. Hopefully our layout won't disappear while we're wrangling over who is going to pay for the LJ this time. I will admit I feel slightly guilty that our first update this year is coming at the end of August. *cough* Let's ignore all of that though and move onto the fic!


HUNTER X HUNTER :: tear x doll x facing your FEAR
Reviewed by Velvet Venus with smart-ass commentary by Leather Daddy


SCORE
PLOT: 1/5 (Plausible premise gone completely wrong)
CHARACTERIZATION: 0/5 (HISOKA DOES NOT FEEL FEAR OR TENDERNESS)
WRITING: 2/5 (A bunch of typos, but the author could reasonably string sentences together.)
RAPE AND MURDER, IN EITHER ORDER: -10/5 (what you expect to see in a Hisoka fic, this is completely lacking)

I love Hunter x Hunter, it has a special place in my heart as one of my first shounen manga loves. Even if the art has regressed to bad line drawings in the more recent chapters of Jump, the story is something that I'll probably always like. Not to mention I know an ungodly amount of trivia about the series since I -well, it's enough to say that I do.

Today we'll be taking a look at one of the more common gems within the HxH fandom, some good old fashioned Hisoka/Gon, second only to Leorio/Kurapika. I won't lie, both of these pairings generally elicit a WHY GOD, WHY?Collapse )
