Yes, I know you have all been waiting all year for this. Really.
I must confess to being somewhat disappointed in this chapter. I think the author is slipping. This chapter is lacking in the charming details of the automotive and racing world that have always brightened previous chapters. And, frankly, it bored me so much that I couldn't concentrate enough to be amused by the typical bad grammar. This chapter was, in a nutshell, completely indifferentiatable from your average sucky fanfic written by a high schooler.
What is the world coming to when even the good bad fanfic writers turn just plain bad? Where am I to derive my entertainment from? It is a cold, cruel fanfic world out there.
(I'm telling you, Mexico next year, I'm bringing this along for the car trips. It will amuse me greatly to see how the decision goes between riding with Dark Horizons, or bailing for Ezra's STi. :D)
