Huh... and here I thought your writing couldn't get better.. Seriously I LOVE it! It's sad, fun, beautiful and if not cruel then unusual. Wow..

I really enjoyed this story and it's left me with a kind of heavy, sweet feeling (like frankincense? ;). What a lovely gift. Thank you.

Well, I really should be in bed, but I really wanted to read this, especially after reading "The World Can Wait." This was just as good, maybe better. This is just so believable. I could definitely see this being played out on the screen. And of course, your imagry, description, and the like is really top notch!

Here it is, the middle of January, and i am just now getting to reviewing this masterpiece that you have created. The depth of feeling resounds strongly throughout the entire piece, the weaving in and out of emotion is perfected just so. Everything is written so much better, so much warmer, so much sweeter, so much more romantic than any other writer I have come across. And many thanks for continuing to write what you write. Everything isn't all a bed of roses, and you portray these characters like nothing ever seen before. And that my friend, is the best fanfiction out there.

You know... they say that men who are in relationships with women who read romance novels have more sex than those who are with women who don't. So the question becomes, what's in those romance novels that makes these women (how shall I put it delicately?) enamorous? I don't think it's the sex. I don't think they read those cheap rags and think, "I wish Bob would rip my clothes off they way Armond ripped Cecila's clothes off." I think they are turned on by the emotional intimacy they lack in their own relationships. So that Marsha would be thinking, "I wish Bob would whisper in my ear the way Armond whispered in Cecilia's ear."
My point being, you write emotional intimacy WAY better than any cheap romance novilist. Bob, are you ready for bed?

Beautifully written. Loved how you left it open like that at the end. :)
| sarah chapter 1 . 12/29/2002
I like it. I like it a lot. I read your fic "through the door" and so when I saw the author name next to "Magi" I hit the button and started reading. It's very well crafted (but then again I expected nothing less from you ;-) ) so kudos to you on another wonderful fic. The level of detail in your descriptions and the keen insight into the character's thoughts is something which I believe sets you apart from many other authors. Well done you, please keep up the good work.
Oh, and as for the ending- very clever.
| Robbie flutiedutiedute chapter 1 . 12/28/2002
Lovely! Deep and thoughtful, but beautifully written with a vivid imagery it seems only you can pull off ;)
You're an excellent writer, the way you manage to manipulate the English language into such beautiful poetry that is really prose at its greatest never ceases to amaze me. Not to mention that you've got the Carby relationship down pat, from innermost thoughts and feelings to dialogue. Thanks for this gift! :)
| Charlotte chapter 1 . 12/28/2002
i loved it.
the problem is, however, i am not in the mood to review in depth so i hope that the three words above cover my feelings adequately.
i eagerly anticipate more of your writing.
| simplyshelly chapter 1 . 12/27/2002
What a well written piece. You have their inner most thoughts down so well and this was very believable. Fantastic job!
| CARBYfan chapter 1 . 12/27/2002
that was really cute. it's too bad he didn't kiss her on the lips at the end thought. please write more!
| all.out.carby chapter 1 . 12/27/2002
Well, that was one of the most beautiful things I've ever read. ;)
Really. You have a knack for the friendship-in-suspense part of Carter and Abby. I love reading it. You're one of the few people who manages to get that part down.
| Carolyn chapter 1 . 12/27/2002
Very good job with this. It's a great, simple story. Season seven rocked, so that just made it all the better. As always, your writing is just so beautiful, and captivates the reader, and really just illustrates the story perfectly. You're one of few who manages to pull it off, and that's why you're one of the best.
When he leans over to whisper in her ear, she is astonished to find herself leaning across the small space to meet him...that was my favorite part. I don't actually know why, but I just imagined it, and loved it.
Anyways, I hope you had a Merry Christmas!
| Anna chapter 1 . 12/27/2002
Very well written, as always, you capture their relationship perfectly. I love that you wrote it in the third person, but that it was in the present tense, like the reader is watching it unfold. It's a style not many people use, but it's really effective.
She wants to make him stop because he is scuffing his expensive Italian loafers in church and there must be a commandment for that. - I loved that line, it really made me giggle!
Anyway, I really enjoyed reading it, it wasn't too fluffy, it was just...them, and I hope you keep writing (particularily Things Behind the Sun *nudge* )
I would love to offer constructive criticism, but I can't, your writing is very defined, and there's nothing I can pick fault with.
