Pairing: DG/Wyatt Cain
Fic Title:Oestrus Pertabatio
Rating/Warning(s):M (explicit sex)
WIP?:Complete in seven parts
Why This Must Be Read:The author takes a fairly common convention in fan fiction, the couple forced to have sex by an aphrodisiac or witches' curse, etc., and takes it to a higher level. The characterization and inner conflicts are all believable. Wyatt Cain lost his wife six months before and fears he will betray her memory if he succumbs to his feelings for DG; DG, under the influence of the curse and in love with Cain, is afraid Cain is only there out of friendship and he will later resent her. Their friends Glitch and Raw both feel embarrassed and conflicted about whether they could or should take Cain's place if he finds himself unable to go through with it. This is one of the better Tin Man stories I've seen, though with a few minor spelling errors.
