It's refreshing to see a story from a different point of view, especially as things were just allowed to flow as they came, rather than the author succumbing to the urge to explain everything, which can often spoil a story. Here we have what one might consider to be a "typical" adventure for Blair (though where the idea comes from that Blair is blaze' about being kidnapped by bad guys -- ah well, more fanon) but this is told nicely from the point of view of someone other than Blair or Jim. Jim-lovers probably won't like this story so much, because he's hardly there, he only turns up briefly at the end. There was also a bit of a niggle in that I didn't think that drug-dealers were ever drug-users, but who am I to say?
