Today's entry title comes from ML - we were talking about fanfics, for some reason, and she was telling the story of that one time when she got roped in to brainstorm a fic involving Mamoru by a friend. And invariably, being fanfic of the 'getting your rocks off' kind, Mamoru got hurt. A LOT. :)) Which then led to observations how the maternal instinct in most girls tend to be expressed through fanfics in the form of extreme torture on their beloved characters, because the payoff is always, ALWAYS the 'comfort' part aka Let The Mothering Begin!
