I like having things I can break, knowing they'll only break when I want them to."
Was it enjoyable? At certain points yes.
Was it necessary in The Original Series Compendium? Eh.
The fact that I'm giving this a 3 despite of what I've been reading this week may be a silver lining in my inabilityl to fawn over this offering from Tiffany Reisz.
It was okay. I just found it a little pointless in the grand scheme of things. Because whatever conflict and reflections Nora may have had at this point in her life courtesy of Lance adds very little to what I know of her. I understand this was based from real-life events and I like that it calls to attention the prejudice good, honourable men like Lance suffer in society.
"I wish I could tell you that there weren't two sets of rules out there for rich, important people like me and normal people like you. I wish I could tell you there wasn't a separate set of rules for men and women. I could tell you that but it would be a lie and you know it."
But the way this was made to fit in Nora's bigger story makes very little sense to me.
