“As Arnold points out, there is an otherwise inexplicable shift in direction in the Piccadilly line passing east out of South Kensington. “In fact,” she writes, “the tunnel curves between Knightsbridge and South Kensington stations because it was impossible to drill through the mass of skeletal remains buried in Hyde Park.” I will admit that I think she means “between Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner”—although there is apparently a “small plague pit dating from around 1664” beneath Knightsbridge Green—but I will defer to Arnold’s research.
But to put that another way, the ground was so solidly packed with the interlocked skeletons of 17th-century victims of the Great Plague that the Tube’s 19th-century excavation teams couldn’t even hack their way through them all. The Tube thus had to swerve to the side along a subterranean detour in order to avoid this huge congested knot of skulls, ribs, legs, and arms tangled in the soil—an artificial geology made of people, caught in the throat of greater London.”

Our Husky Stark seemed a little overheated after his walk this morning, so we decided to tried something out. We regret it now because it is next to impossible to get him to come out
a freezer husky!

I admit I’m usually in larger fandoms, so it’s the longer fic interrupted by sexy times that gets to me more - like, I was enjoying this plot, get back to the plot, don’t worry I had been assuming your genitals were in working order
That final bit just made me laugh out loud.

Yay! You read the dialogue too. I’m so pleased I’m not the only one. They usually just have a very angry exchange of swear words possibly followed by a soppy declaration of love.
Yeah, you have to admit, it doesn’t tend to be the best bits of dialogue in the fic.
Saying that, I have probably written things with sophisticated exchanges along the lines of affectionate ‘you twat’ / ‘fuck off’, so I can’t really talk.

I can’t tell if it’s good or bad if there is plot in there, because yes it means there’s a point, but no because now I have to read it all to make sure there was nothing else
It is a dangerous lifestyle (I can’t decide if it’s worse when you’re reading a longer fic and don’t want to miss plot because you’re invested and don’t want to suddenly not know what’s going on because plot happened whilst you were scrolling, or when it’s short and probably mostly sex but you’re so starved for fic you’re looking for plot regardless).
When I first started reading fic aged 18 (I know, I know, I was lost to a world of books and not-internet before that), I know I used to skip whole chapters without even checking for plot. They must’ve been larger fandoms with less slim pickings.

I think I prefer the former because you can just skip the sex/ only read dialogue (I do this in case there’s plot hidden in between all the dicks). But you can’t NOT read Americanisms etc. small errors like that (for me it’s grammar/syntax) suck.
Yep, I think I agree - you can skip the sex, and generally know it’s *cringes for the following pun* coming, but if there’s certain small errors that get to you, it just throws you off out of the blue (and also yes for the skipping through but checking dialogue for plot, glad to hear I’m not alone in that).
I am that person who doesn't mind sex in books but in fic I'm all like 'umm no fade to black get to plot please'
