In related news, the best antidote for having had to write Alanna's terrible, horrible, no-good, very-bad first time is to write about Capri's first time. In contrast to Alanna, Capri was of age and emotionally prepared - and it was with her best friend (who, unlike Alanna's best-and-only friend, is sane and not evil). Who brought her roses. Because it was also her birthday. (She promised Halloran she'd wait til she was legal.) And he was very good to her and lo there were many orgasms and much snuggliness and stuff and life, for Capri, was good. (Life was pretty damn good for Kieran, too, actually. :) )
Jeramie's side of last night's bit is bubbling up in my brain, though. So. Argh.
