soaked velvet starlight chapter 1 . 11/11/2009
I honestly cannot put into words how amazing this story is. It was simply beautiful. The feeling and tone and atmosphere and emotion were all so powerful that I could feel it. I could hear the characters speaking in my head, and see them in front of me. And your portrayal of Jed and Leo's friendship was so powerful it actually brought tears to my eyes. The juxtaposition of the grand and the minute - bickering over height jokes while philosophizing about power and morality was pure West Wing. And it got more gorgeous with every sentence. I could just see the expression on Jed's face after Leo told him that he was pretty much salvation itself, and the sight actually made my stomach flip over. And the last two lines at the end was one of the most exquisite things I've ever read. Leo's smile and the moment of sunset. I think my brain blew a fuse from the beauty of this story.

Lovely writing. Very sensitive & true to form for you & the characters. One Leo there in spirit as was Mrs. L in The Two Cathedral? Or is Leo there in reality? Either way I loved it. THanks much.

"Leo gave him that pure, brilliant, Leo smile, the one that lit up the world and everyone in it."

Oh, but I'll miss that smile. Thanks for this - happy memories of Leo and John, and just what he brought to the show.

Loved it. Plain and simple.
Regency chapter 1 . 12/20/2005
This was utterly touching and heartbreaking. I can hear them having this conversation and this moment. Thank you so much. It's a little salve on an open wound. It's "a freakishly freakish control freak" that makes it art.
