Why This Must Be Read: What I love best about the aliens made them do it/mate or die (or, in this case, sex-inducing ray gun) trope is not the trope itself but the aftermath. After they've been forced to have sex, how is the characters' relationship affected? How do they move past it (or do they)? The Intermittent Kissing Solution is a perfect aftermath fic that keeps the humor and topsy-turvy timekeeping of the source material. In addition, the slow reveal of exactly what happened (both in regards to the characters and the reader) ratchets the tension up and keeps it high.
