Title: Bitter Escape Author: nofacesonlymasks Rating: M Genre: Horror/Supernatural Status: WIP Fandom: Word of Darkness Pairings: N/A Summary: How do you keep from despairing when every pleasurable thing you grasp at crumbles to dust? How do you keep from becoming a monster when you're surrounded by manipulation and betrayal? In the end, it's the little things that keep you whole and sane. Link: Chapter 1 So, this fic was one I read some years ago and died. Thankfully, the author has chosen to continue the story. It is a novelization of Vampire: The Masquerade video game. The author definitely fleshes out the story beyond the game, however. It is disturbingly creepy and awesomely written. The primary negative would be that the first few chapters are centered format wise; but get changed to regular format around Chapter 4. So not too terrible. The characters are extremely well fleshed out. I give it a 5/5.
