I jumped into the 1998 Circuit Archive on a friend's recommendation, all innocent and dewy-eyed and avid for MM romance. I saved a story from one of each author and the first I read was
Awakening and Reciprocity by Lily, hooked by the first line:
"Make love to me, Bodie. Please, Bodie, make love to me. Bodie..."
Well, it was sweet and hot and got me eager for more about this pair, though I still remember my surprise when I finally saw an episode.
The first mention of "the Cow" showed up in another story, and I visualised a formidable female boss.
