Author's Notes[edit]

From http://mchandler.org/ssbb/undone.html:

Something of an unusual SSB*B submission from me, this time around. Somehow over the years I have become accustomed to writing very long, plot-heavy stories that bash up hard against one rule or another, requiring me to write to the editors and beg for forgiveness; this time around I specifically set out to write an SSB*B story as close to the original spirit of the webzine as possible: short, porny as hell, and largely plotless. It also came out skeevy and psychologically disturbing. Go, me!

Warnings: porn, porn, porn, porn, and profanity—also creepy and unpleasant things are being done by a creepy and unpleasant person

That... was pretty nasty, all in all! I made a specific effort to pare out as much euphemism as I could and go straight for the down-and-dirty instead, because that seemed like the most Damon-like approach. I hesitate to call this a 'masculine' approach to porn, but the masculine sound was kind of what I'd wanted to produce. I indulged my predilection for euphemism and language-fuckery outside of the porn, and that was good enough for me.

Damon is an amoral bastard—I wouldn't go so far as to say evil, but I could probably make an argument for that, too—and it pleased me to not redeem him at all.
