How can I – how can any of us – ever thank you properly for this gift of a tale?
You obviously care for the characters so much, and it shows. With each other and in their inner conflict, Peter and Wendy are loyal and loving, daring and defiant, and undeniably them.
A tale as both romantic and true as yours is rare indeed.
Like the song says, little things mean a lot. Some of my favorite moments and images –
-The delicious images of Peter and Wendy so intimate and private outdoors on several occasions. I’m not outdoorsy myself, but I adore the ambience of these scenes since the world seems to have fallen away, but is still so open and there around them.
-How forbidden and amazing and plausible that Peter easily flies them from London all the way to Cornwall. Roses are my favorite flower, bar none.
-The mocking recount of the many empty compliments given “Miss Darling” by her well-meaning suitors.
-Tinker Bell flitting around eagerly to show Wendy details of her new home.
-The scent of Neverland at twilight – moccasins and waterfalls and dreams…sublime.
-Mrs. Darling’s barely-a-snore.
-Peter’s frustration in Chapter 6 about…um…apertures is hugely hysterical and hugely plausible.
The new Lost Boys greeting Wendy, and their umbrage at her naming only one of them.
I could go on, but I’m sure other reviewers have exalted about “Awakenings” much more eloquently than me.
I envy people who have never read this story and get to experience it for the first time.
Since I was a child, I have harbored sadness over the end of “Peter Pan” even as I felt relief about growing into independence myself. It is such a deep comfort it is to me to know that your story will always be there for hopeless/ful romantics like me who always yearned for a different destiny for Peter and Wendy.
Thank you again and again for this unique, marvelous treasure.

...I had no idea all these things happened in the bedroom. I just realized how little I know about anything regarding this.
Well, it was written in a very classy way. But my goodness, I had NO idea.

Nice. Artfully done. I liked the part when he kissed her down 'there' because he thought he'd hurt. Aw! So tender an act when this part of sex are usually described in a carnal manner. Anyway, I loved. I'm really glad I came across this. )

THAT WAS HE SINGLE MOST...ROMANTIC...EROTIC...CAPTIVATING FAN FICTION I HAVE EVER READ. THE ENTIRE TIME I READ IT, I IMAGINED COLORS.
WHEN THE MOOD WAS ROMANTIC, I'D IMAGINE A BLUE COLOR. A TWILIGHT BLUE.
WHEN THE MOOD WAS HOT AND EROTIC, I'D IMAGINE RED AND A BLUSH PINK.
WHEN THE MOOD WAS SAD, I'D IMAGINE WHITE OR A DULL COLOR.
