You Wanted Love But I Wanted You
You Wanted Love But I Wanted You is a story written by Lola Mente. It originally ran in Issue 55 at http://s2b2.livejournal.com/309674.html, and is mirrored at http://www.shousetsubangbang.com/mirror/you-wanted-love-but-i-wanted-you/.
From https://fairyninjas.wordpress.com/2015/06/29/ssbb-55-guys-and-balls/: "The god of overdosing and shadows tries to escape his fate, which means he’s avoiding the god of light and poetry. Beautifully executed, if a bit lacking in clear explanations. Not in a bad way, more like in a world-building sort of cock-tease way."
- http://harmless-one.livejournal.com/38009.html: "The gods are back in full force here. But this story is pretty much an extended poem in two parts. I came to the conclusion that HOW this one was written mattered more than WHAT it is about. The story involves a god of shadows and his long lost lover. But it doesn't really matter because, again, this one is really about the language and atmosphere. Lots of poetic descriptions and internal musings."
