THAT STRICKLAKE FIC WAS SO GOOD IM SCREECHING WALTER H O W D A R E Y O U BE SO SMOOTH AND CARING AHHHH
God, you know what really sucked about writing it though? That it’s Barbara’s POV and she’s so swept away and touched and weak-kneed over this man and his smooth suaveness BUT EVEN MORE so by his concern and tenderness to her and his fear of hurting her because she just assumes that he knows how badly she’s been hurt by Jim’s father and he doesn’t want to cause her any more pain and she is so incredibly touched by that–
–and all the while WE know what’s happening, what’s really going down, how Strickler may truly not WANT to cause her pain but he’s using her anyway and he feels AWFUL but he’s still DOING IT and half of this fanfic he’s awash in wonder for this woman and her lusty wiles while the other half he’s realizing, Gods, I really *am* a bastard, aren’t I?
I love Strickler, but God do I want to smack him upside the head sometimes.
((Imagine APH Poland as a ghost. Like seriously, he’s not into that whole “let’s shake everything and slam doors” business, because aient nobody got time for that. But the current resident notices certain clothes going missing and sometimes at night when they’re changing, they could almost swear that they heard a voice “You’re not seriously going to wear that? Ohmygod, you are. Someone call the police, that outfit should be illegal.”))
