Carve Your Kisses in My Skin
Carve Your Kisses in My Skin - jmcats

3.25 stars

Not quite what I was hoping for, but all around still a good fic.

Often the prose flows rather beautifully (from what little I've read of the fanfiction for this fandom that seems to be a constant) but there are quite a few times where little errors will pop up that disrupt the flow. It happens often enough in this one that it's rather distracting and makes this a bit of an awkward read in parts. Although you could argue that the stop and go moments, especially if it makes you fumble or double back, only adds to the atmosphere of the character's youth and teenage moments of awkwardness. From that perspective, the prose is probably pretty flawless. Still, I found myself nitpicking this just a bit, which made it difficult to get lost in the story as I was hoping to do, as had happened with the previous two 1D fics I've had the pleasure of reading.

Overall this was still enjoyable.

Note: for anyone who cares, Zayn uses the word "babe" a total of 16 times throughout this fic. Does anyone know if Zayn actually says babe that often irl? It's cute and sweet, but close to too much for me.

"Today is the day that Arthur grins like an idiot and laughs and blushes and advises people on the amount of vanilla in their scones," Yusuf says. "May 22, everyone. Mark your calendars."

Eames, because he's a bastard, actually marks the calendar.


Sweet, adorable, a bit sad. Perfect.

I'm not feeling very coherent right now because chronic insomnia makes this another late night in a long list of late nights, but any eloquent words I could say about this fic would fall short on how I feel about it. This is the second story by gyzym I've read (The Love Song of the North American Douchebag is also pretty great) and I'm always going to look back on it with fondness. gyzym does a combination of comedy and slight angst so well and it's impossible for me not to swoon over her stories. I highly recommend this one! Also there's a pretty great soundtrack to read this to.

Note: for anyone who cares there are a few editing errors in this, but the number is very low.

Well done and quite enjoyable but I would have liked for

the reason for Sam's muteness to be revealed and what the nightmare that caused it was,  although that is a pretty minor "complaint" since the reason doesn't much matter.

(spoiler show)
