Review:
Chris Keller breaks out of prison, and he and Toby run away to Las Vegas. It isn't long before the law is on their tales, and Toby has to decide between his lover and his life.

I really love the strange, twisted 'Bonnie-and-Clyde meets Thelma-and-Louise' dynamic that Keller and Beecher take on in this fic, and while the ending is definitely not happy, there's hope in the future for them. I adore the way [livejournal.com profile] mandysbitch portrays their relationship, insular and frightening in it's intensity. Prison has changed these men, and you can clearly see it in the story. There are some wonderful OCs in here too, interesting and believable. All in all, I think this one of the best Oz fics I've come across yet.

Title: Hit and Run

Length:

drug use, explicit sex

Website: Blackchaps’ Pony Ride

Review:
It is somewhat inevitable that a self-destructive drunkard like Tobias Beecher would hurt someone in the throws of another late night bender. It's a good thing, however, that he's run over a lowlife like Chris Keller instead of some unlucky innocent. (Or, maybe not.)

I love, love, love [livejournal.com profile] blackchaps's AUs. They're long, engrossing and the perfect way to spend a quiet afternoon. Hit and Run is a really fun read, and captures the essential dysfunctional nature of both men, showing that even if they didn't go to prison, their relationship would be just as screwed up as it is in the big house. The only thing that I had a problem with in this fic was a scene with marijuana use, and that's just because of personal preference.

Hit and Run

Review:

Beecher and Keller fantasize about what their lives would’ve been like if they’d met outside of Oz.

This fic is very sad and very sweet. You can tell that Beecher and Keller really love each other as they pine for what could’ve been. Make no mistake, their love is brutal and bitter, but it’s still there, in the end, and this fic really captures that. I really loved the dynamic between Sister Pete and Keller in this fic, she's trying so hard to save Toby from Chris, and Chris will have none of that, matching her blow for blow. There's something deeply unsettling but satisfying about having characters fantasize about each other, and how it can tell so much about the person having the fantasy, when it's done right. And this fic? So done right.

 Blackchaps’ Pony Ride

Review:

Tobias Beecher, Vern Schillinger's latest prag and 'pussy bitch' extraordinaire, becomes better acquainted with the newest hack in Oz: Officer Christopher Keller.

[livejournal.com profile] blackchaps has a way of making long, engaging AUs, and Fate Makes A Man is no exception. There's enough prison politics and f*ed-up romance to go around, and the AU is incredibly believable. It would make sense that Chris Keller would make a great prison guard, if he hadn't been a serial killer, and the author pays a good amount of attention to his backstory, making a believable backstory for him, while still retaining his character. What I liked best about this though, aside from the romance, was that [livejournal.com profile] blackchaps pays attention to the other characters too. It's not just about Keller and Beecher falling in love, it's also about prison politics, on both sides of the bars. Keller worries about his job and his connections with the Nazis, and Beecher schemes to break away from Schillinger's clutches by any means necessary, and it's all kind of awesome. The only thing I wasn't quite sold on was the writing itself, it's a little too heavy on the exposition for my tastes, but that's just because I'm super-picky and a little bit of a snob about what I read besides.

Fate Makes A Man
(ETA: there's a malware warning when you go to the page- but the Google Safe Browsing diagnostic says that it's been safe for a while now, so I'd take the warning with a grain of salt.)
