Notes: Wow. When the sga_flashfic's Shark Challenge came up, those of us who like our fic a little on the dark side got lucky. Not only did magus_minor write an excellent trilogy but more than one person took her up on the opportunity to write their own fic based on hers. They're all good, but ellex42's trilogy is just as good, if not better than the originals. Okay, so my bias is showing...there are really only two problems with the first three: they're too short, and there's not enough sex. You know me. I always go for the sex - especially when it's kinky sex. And it's definitely kinky sex.
In the first trilogy, Magus Minor sets up the premise: John just happens to be a lot darker than people think...he's a sadist, and he enjoys it, although he tries hard to hide it, for obvious reasons. I can't explain how because it would be a big time spoiler, but Rodney finds out. The first trilogy leaves us there, without a real resolution - which is why, I'm sure, that Magus Minor threw out the invitation to others to write their own sequels. And here's where Ellex comes in. She takes that premise, and has Rodney turn the tables on John, and let me tell you - it's hot as hell. I'm not going to say any more, you'll just have to read them and find out for yourself.
Oh, yeah...I honestly can't tell you how happy it made me to have Magus Minor use Mac the Knife to tie her three fic together. I love The Threepenny Opera. And another thing: Ellex's Frenzy was written for the 2006 version of the Kink and Cliche Challenge. Damn but that challenge has had some good shit come out of it!
