Yeah because of all the Covid-19 stuff I came on this website again for the first time in years looking for a story to read. Then I saw this old story was one of the most recently commented on ones, so I read it again expecting it to be a cringe disaster, but I actually liked it a lot and felt inspired. So I've been writing it and thinking about it a lot ever since. Procrastinating on work, now that we have to work at home, really makes me productive on fun stuff like this.I'm glad you're posting this here!
The tension in this story is fantastic. There’s the awkward tension between Mia and Scott as their attraction is never quite in sync, there’s the tension of Scott’s desires to lose weight and to eat as he wants, and then there’s the tension of being an ffa who wonders if what she wants is actually enabling a fat man in an unhealthy way, which I’ve felt in real life. You’re really capturing all that here!
