Re: October Challenge: Hostel Defiant Takeover
I'm not sure how you came to the conclusion that this is torture porn. The way the characters behave, especially Phlox, is consistent with what we've seen of the Mirror Universe. I think that the story's title is supposed to be Hostile Defiant Takeover and that it's a misspelling like there are a few in the story itself.
I could be wrong but I don't see any reference to the movie 'Hostel' in the story.
