I’ve mentioned Oncest a few times on this blog. Basically, it’s shipping the Once-ler with another Once-ler. Usually, one of the Once-lers hasn’t had his business take off yet, and the other is already successful; put another way, one of them is wearing a green suit and the other is wearing a vest and stripy pants. This is known as “classic Oncest”. (There’s also 72/12 Oncest, which is shipping the Once-ler from the 1972 cartoon with the Once-ler from the 2012 movie, but it’s irrelevant to this post.)
Now, I’m no expert, but as far as I can tell, classic!Oncest usually involves calling the greensuited Once-ler “Greed-ler” and the other “Oncie” and making them fit standard yaoi stereotypes as much as possible. From what I’ve seen of the Oncest side of the fandom (and heard about from the non-Oncest side of the fandom), this is pretty much the norm. But I haven’t really read much Oncest that fits that bill myself (or much Oncest in general, really), so hey, what do I know?
A couple days ago, though, I saw this fic on Tumblr and it occurred to me that it’d been months since the last time I wrote a fanfic review. The first time I did a fanfic review, I just picked a oneshot at random. This time, I did pretty much the same thing. Upon seeing that the fic was reasonably short, I decided to just jump in and review it without first reading it through.
Brief warning: this fic does contain some sexual content, and while I didn’t describe it in any great detail it still gets a mention as being in there. There’s also murder and violence and blood, but for some reason our culture has decided that sex is more objectionable than killing people, so I’m not sure if I have to warn you about the violent stuff.
