Brief Synopsis:
The ninth Consecution features ten shorts by seven editors, all exploring the themes of love and romance. They take many forms. Some serious. Some silly. Some beautiful in their warmth. Some outright terrifying. Come join us and spread the love!

Intention:
The Fanedit community voted on this most complicated of human emotions. The goal, simply, is to collect a variety of shorts dealing with this subject.

Well, I'm not going to say what I usually say, that "this is the best Consecution since Batman" because it's not. It is pretty damn great though. A great variety of shorts, ranging from wacky comedy to hardcore depressing drama. The highlights for me were "Love Kills" by matrixgrindhouse and " Matcha To Bon Odori (Green Tea and the Spirit Dance)" by TM2YC.

An all-around solid contribution to the Consecution library. The stand-out edits for me were "Top 5 Break Ups" by Neglify and "Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter... and Spring" by That One Guy. Both shorts gave me just what I was looking for with a project like this. Kudos to all involved, and extra high-fives to Rogue-the-X for some fantastic original artwork to represent the team effort.
