LC definitely has the "show, don't tell" strategy down perfectly! Like you said, I can hear them talking, and I can also see the action.

Yes, you're exactly right. She's got the "show don't tell" thing down, and I can see the action.

It's a bit more violent and bloody than I usually like, but the writing is so, so good. How do writers like this come up with so much plot and so much dialogue? It boggles my mind.

Uh-oh, I haven't gotten to any Kleenex moments yet. Eleven chapters! Wow, it's long. I think I'm up to chapter 5 or 6.

Mine, too!

I think that one ends up with 14 chapters or so. Very long. But I'm glad - I didn't really want it to end!

Most of the "Kleenax moments" are in some of the other stories. "Yeah, That One Last Thing" was the worst, I think, for that - a "hurts so good" kind of story.
