After much thought...
...I figure I'll put this up anyhow. If anyone out there is squicked by slash, they can skip this entry.
Anyway, I spent most of today reading this huge series by Capella. The pairing is A/L in the earlier fics, and mostly Legolas/Imrahil in the later ones. Now, A/L fics are dime a dozen all over the LOTR slash fandom. But I think this is the first time I've seen a Legolas/Imrahil fic. Fairly well written too.
Granted, there were a few themes and events in the stories that made me uncomfortable... not squicked or anything, but morality-wise, I'm not sure I agree with some of the lines of reasoning used in it. A few sentiments came a bit too close to being rationalized non-con, and a few of the character reactions to things came off a bit forced and unrealistic.
Oh yeah, and there was this one LOTR/Buffy xover that was just awful. Like watching a train wreck in action. The girl shouldn't write xovers, especially with slash in it. Seriously.
