    One thought on “Patience, a Steady Hand”

    1. Unexpectedly, this turned out to be a gem of a fic. There is very little that reminds me of the usual vibe & feel of fanfic about this fic. Maybe that's because I'm -- apart from some fanart on Tumblr -- unfamiliar with this particular ship. But Patience, a Steady Hand held its own and could very easily be read as an original fic. A bunch of editing issues aside, I wouldn't have batted an eyelash if I'd bought a historical romance and this fic is what I was given.There is something very unde [...]

    2. So I read this Monday and Tuesday (It is Wednesday as I write this) and I can say it is really good but I don't know how much I really liked it. Here are my conflicting thoughts on it. 1) Helenish is fucking awesome. This fic didn't sound like my thing, but she wrote one of my top favorite Stereks - In Quiet, A Favor - so I gave this a try. The prose are beautiful - nearly poetic. The psychological insight is perceptive. The voice is solemn, but commanding. The story telling is top of the line. [...]

    3. Helenish turns out to be quite the author! And the setting of this story is rather unusual for a fanfic (considering the movie Inception its based on):In 821 A.D a monk gets captured and brought to the "North" (Denmark? Norway?) by the warriors ransacking his monastery. He starts to live with Arthur, his new master. In a way, this reminded me of "Brothers of the Wild North Sea", only the roles are reversed. Here, we leave England and experience 'Viking' village life through the eyes of Eames, th [...]

    4. Irresistibly goodI meant only to check out a few paragraphs and instead I found myself completely immersed in the beautifully stark descriptions and the unfolding story of Eames captured in a Viking raid and taken as a thrall by Arthur.Told in the third person and present tense it deftly explores the uneasy relationship between these two men as they come to understand each other. I was captured by the laconic and almost hypnotic prose.The book explores the dynamics of differing cultural views an [...]

    5. All the stars.Awesome. Beautiful. I loved every word. As another reviewer has already mentioned, it reminded me of Brothers of the Wild North Sea - one of my all time favourites. Highly, highly recommended.

    6. 3.5 stars.Slave and master fiction, no doubt, there's a fine line between gross, bad, wrong, disgusting and oh-so-good here. Really well written, but disturbing. Not sure whether I can see how love can develop between master and slave, especially considering the murder and mayhem and the rape in the beginning, though.Well. As you can see: ambivalent feelings all around. Nevertheless, an interesting, captivating and well-written piece of fanfiction.

    7. Here is the link to this fanfic: archiveofourown/works/1700Patience, a Steady Hand was recommended to me because of its similarities to Captive Prince.5/16/2017 It's been a while since I wrote a full review, so I'll just messily jump into the fray of things.Confession time: I un-friended (on ) my one and only real-life friend that I had added on this site because I read this book. It was just too weird knowing that I had read this book, which seems a bit taboo, and also knowing that she would be [...]
