    Title: Smoke Signals
    Author: Plastiswafsrz
    Rating: T
    Genre: Gen
    Pairing: Robin/Steve (but platonically)
    Fandom: Stranger Things
    Status: Oneshot (2359 words)
    Link: AO3

    Summary:
    "I can't figure out your movie taste," Robin says.
    "I see where you're going wrong," Steve says. "I don't have any taste."

    I didn’t really know where to post this. It’s a very slice of life one shot, and generally I don’t go for that sort of fic. The author really has a good handle on the characters though, especially Steve. It skirts angst- but its so short that it never becomes gratuitous.

    I enjoyed it. Probably only a 3/5 just because its so short, but still worth the read if you’ve binged season 3 and don’t quite want to let the characters go yet.

    Hard to put a rating on this because I've not seen Stranger Things. Seems like a generic gratuitous fluff character piece, the idiosyncratic hallmark of fanfic outside the hallowed halls of DLP.

    Didn't spot any errors. The subject matter was both banal and trite, but that's more a matter of taste than anything else. I imagine there'd be more to this for someone who knew or cared about the characters, but with this being so short, I didn't have any emotional reaction to this whatsoever.

    2/5

    I went in expecting John Waynes teeth, and I did not get that.

    2/5.
