I don't see why you're complaining man. Isn't slash fic better than pedo-wolves?

It has a brilliant title. Simple, short, but leaving absolutely no doubt as to what you are going to find in the story.

Never underestimate the willingness of Regretsy's Fat Jealous Losers™ to buy incredibly ridiculous things.

I loved the sample. If I had my Kindle I would be reading the story right now, while my wife tried on clothes in the best shopping trip ever.

I notice it goes from past to present tense and back again mid-paragraph... I feel this work will be too avant garde for my tastes.

This reflects the tradition of time travel in Star Trek narratives.

It wouldn't be the first time someone has done something absolutely ridiculous involving Wil Wheaton and/or Wesley Crusher.

I'm kind of hung over, so for a second there I somehow mixed up the posters on that comment and thought jscalzi had written that comment, and was all "Wuh?" Way to mess with my brain, folks.

Apparently it sells for $3.54. How much money is the author making with this?
