Title: Valentine’s Day
Author: Bear of Love
Summary: Chet thinks everything’s under control, but things keep getting worse for him on the day of love. How can he possibly get himself out of this one? One-shot. ChetXBurn
So this was one of the most adorable and accurate fics I have ever read. I didn’t expect there to be FF about Turbo, especially not Turbo: F.A.S.T. but I am very happy to say there is. The basic plot of this fic is that Chet planned the most perfect Valentine’s Day for Burn, but the main event blew away so he had to think fast to save himself after the snail gang told him Burn’s last boyfriend may or may not have been killed by Burn (that was dark even for Turbo: F.A.S.T. which is pretty dark some episodes).
So the characters were amazingly in character. Based on what they were saying I was able to pick out which characters were which instead of having to read the names which is always an amazing thing. It really gave power to the fic. This could have literally been an episode of Turbo: F.A.S.T. and I wouldn’t have blinked an eye. There was a lot less racing in it than normal, but there could have easily been a race to find the flower added in which would have made the episode fit the model that the show has going. I am very impressed.
The pairing never did make sense to me, but that was actually addressed in the fic a bit which makes the pairing sit better for me. Burn gives Chet some excitement and Chet grounds Burn and makes her a little less of a fireball (pun clearly intended). The author was able to go beyond what the show offered to explain something that can only be hinted at in the show. This fic was amazing. Literally the only thing that was missing was Burn snapping her gum at Chet out of anger before he tried to get himself out of trouble.
4.5 out of 5 stars. I would highly recommend this fic.
