His stories are basically all well-written and run the gamut between happy to bittersweet to "where's the brain bleach, I don't want to remember this". The later examples, you might have to look beyond FF for some of them, are some of the most...difficult to read fics in eva that aren't written purely for shock value like certain aquatic themed author.
Funny how (relatively) recent this reply is as Kadmon just posted a new oneshot that showed that he does, in fact, still got it (in terms of making dark and depressing stuff). But yeah, I've heard about what the original Witness is actually about, what Second Other is about, what I Knew Him When is about, and I believe that he's fully capable of what his reputation has told me (and tbh I'm not sure I want to see them for myself lol).
So yeah, overall solid story; characters and world felt very grounded and real, prose and dialogue were strong as always with Kadmon, and I ended up feeling depressed by the end of it. So I guess I did end up getting the classic Kadmon experience afterall. Yay? ((also to whoever's reading this, if you still haven't read Patient but somehow have read this story, I'd say now would be a good time to read that one))
