|Reviews for Blind Instinct|
| Guest chapter 8 . 2/27
All in all, the story has been entertaining up to this point but I will have to drop it after ch. 8, due to some problematic depictions that I would like to adress.
Small disclaimer: Please do not take this personal, dear author, at it is not meant to be. I am not making insinuations, implied or otherwise, about you as a person. I'm just adressing certain story elements. English also isn't my first language so if I do accidentally offend you, I apologize in advance.
Some of the early scenes are somewhat ableist, especially people's ridiculous insistence on Leon not being alone at night. Blind people can get by pretty well in familiar surroundings as long as stuff isn't moved around. Thus, Yuffie's presence is more of a problem (e. g. the cot) than a help. Leon likes being self-reliant, it's a major character trait of Squall, and it would have been better to find ways to preserve that self-reliance (e. g. putting a ribbon on the bathroom doorknob) instead of creating unnecessary dependence.
There is also some very obvious abusive behaviour in this chapter. Yuffie hits Leon to the point of brusing, thus, actually injuring him lightly. She also pulls his hair. If a guy injured his (blind!) girlfriend by hitting her with his fist and non-consensually pulled her hair, people would rightly claim abuse because that's what it is. Yuffie also does not show any form of repentance at any point during the scene (while Leon, who merely reacted to her abusive actions, instantly did). That's depicting an unhealthy double standard.
The whole thing is made even worse by the fact that Leon cannot presently see the attacks coming. Therefore, he is not forewarned which means he cannot defend himself or avoid the attack. I cannot perceive this as funny, harmless or make light of it.
I hope you will find my review somewhat useful. If not, feel free to ignore it.

That was so adorable! I loved the entire story. It was a little awkward reading it over the span of a few days because it required my brain resetting several times, but it was worth it. I really loved it-the longest Squffie I've read...wow. I will definitely be moving on to the sequel-in fact, I'm going to leave my review as lame as it is now so I can get there sooner!
