I can’t believe I forgot about Peter Woodward. I thought he was so cool when I was younger.
Also, in retrospect, my love for the Babylon 5 novels his character appears in is surprisingly similar to my current tastes. I didn’t have quite the same language to describe those ideas as I do now, but I definitely understood the basics.
The distance between woobly hurt-comfort fic type things and stuff that’s actually about trauma in a serious way is really not that big, is it?
