Skids is not an idiot. He is not retarded. Yet so often when I read ML fics I get the impression that he hasn't progressed past the age of six or seven. Reading this, especially if it's a romantic fic, I am turned off, because he's not a fully developed HUMAN BEING let alone character, and any romance seems like child molestation.
In these fics, Skids' language is over-simplified. He is sweet to the point of being revolting. He doesn't know what he wants and if it's a Cy/Skids fic (which 98% of the time it is), he is never the one to resolve the angst.
