You know how you can be reading a series and enjoying it and then you start looking at the summaries or tags for some of the future stories and it feels like the Jaws theme should start playing?

That "ugh, please don't...crap...please?...you're totally going to...no...DO NOT WANT, WHY WOULD YOU, ARGH" thing.

For reals, 2/3 of the way through, more than 800,000 words in, and it's going to go Suddenly, Threesome! And that is legit one of my least favorite Suddenlys (Suddenly, Kidfic! = surprisingly good in a lot of cases) because except in the case of Neal Caffrey and the Burkes, I really don't like poly ships that include an established long-term couple and the Other One. There's a lot of awkwardness and potential inequality built into that configuration and most fic does not really deal with that well/at all.

Also, the author has talked way too much about two of the threesome participants' bond as (step)brothers for me to dig this.

IT IS LIKE CLARK AND LEX AND CORNERS OF THE WORLD ALL OVER AGAIN. EXCEPT THE PSEUDOINCEST IS LESS CREEPY.
