Wunderbar. I love the Earth Goddess bit, and I love Grissom finally coming out of his shell at the end. Sweetness.

I'm speechless. But in a good way. Fantastic, that is all I can come up with!

Oh my god. OH MY GOD. I love you. I mean, I really really do. That was...that was...*take a twentieth tissue".
I was so craving to read this fic, I'm not kidding. When I got an alert for it last month, then when I saw all the recommendations for it, I was like "WHY? WHY AM I A SPOILER FREE?" And I told myself that as soon as I watch 'Leaving Las Vegas', I'll run to read your fic. So here I am, all teary, all happy and full of wonderful emotions :'(
Jeez…There’s so much thing to say about your story that I truly don’t know what to say. Okay, I think I’m just…gonna start with the beginning, and see where it’s leading me
So, first at all, I loved how you start their relationship! I mean, the common idea now is “after Commited” or “after Grave Danger”, and I’m not complaining, ‘cause I’m sure it’s after GD myself So your idea is new, and great! I loved your interpretation of the “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” scene D
Then, the Earth Goddess phase : awesome. You have such a way to describe the characters’ feelings, a really…visual way ? *stop a minute to try to be clear with her franglish mind* I mean that you used a lot of images and metaphors that are really poignant (hope I’m clear lol _’) I was happy along with Sara as I was reading, I had a real stupid smile on my lips .
“The Earth Goddess was born in a weekend, and died in an hour.” SEE? That what I meant! With this little sentence, those fourteen tiny words, you described Sara’s feeling awesomely, and immediately, I felt awfully sad. The whole part when he’s away, and when she’s alone, and sad…*sigh* you just broke my heart _ Because after the last scene of ‘Leaving Las Vegas’, gosh, this was so believable :’( I really REALLY wanted to hit Grissom with something sharp and painful, when he ““teases”” her about Ashley. This man’s really got a BAD humour _ Sara’s breakdown was really well done, and so understandable.
You did great by writing Grissom’s POV just after that, ‘cause I was really ready to go to Boston and kick his ass off. ((No, you don’t have to tell me that he’s a fictional character, and that actually he DOESN’T exist, I know that, my shrink did good job on that point )).The phone call fixed my broken heart, I felt the romance was coming back, and Grissom singing *SQUEE!*
“What a Lovely Way to Burn: In Public” If your goal was to put a BIG stupid grin all over my face just with this sentence…well, you succeed, CONGRATULATIONS! …sorry, overhappiness because of your fic I ADORE everything you wrote in the end of your story, in public or in private, both are awesome. Really, I should quote every sentence, this is not gonna be a possibility, I’ve already filled a whole page . The ending was so beautiful, so sweet, so them, so perfect, so awesome, so every great positive word you want, you made me cry again *sigh* The matter is that for once, I read it during the afternoon, and not in the middle of the night (wow, I’m so proud of myself), so my little sist was in the room too, and she really thinks I’m nuts now (because I’m not, of course, I just do freaking bigs reviews). Did I tell you that I love you? ‘Cause I want to marry you want I grow up
Yes, I did it again, big blabla .’ And of course, I did it when the alerts are down again…*big desperate sigh* hope you’ll find it somehow, I’m sure I put some nice compliments here and there, just have to lool closely
Thank you so much for this fic, I really needed this after the last ep, you really made my day :))

Very well written. Long oneshot.
| ligaras chapter 1 . 12/23/2006
What an absolutely delightful story!
This was like reading my own jumbled thoughts; those thoughts which linger in a stage where one is partially awake, yet not present enough to coherently finish the process. I always wondered exactly what I was really thinking...and this was it!
Thank you much for sharing,
| JuanseyLio chapter 1 . 12/23/2006
this story is probably one of the best i've read of them as a couple!
you did this wonderful! truly loved it ;)

If this is your last story of the year, you saved the best for last. This is one of the best "sabbatical" stories I have read so far. I really enjoyed every part of if. The thought of
grissom singing made me smile. Thanks so much for sharing this. I hope that your holidays are cheerful and happy. anne

Such a good fic. I'm quite the happy camper after reading this...oh, about three times in a row.
| mart1 chapter 1 . 12/21/2006
This story was absolutely wonderful...you perfectly described their relationship and what I feel just goes on inside their heads! My favorite? Griss threatening to sing "Please come to Boston". I literally teared up at that...because the idea of him doing that just hit me square in the heart!
There are few authors who I feel can do this well...and you have just become one of my favorites!
How I wish the idea for his sabbatical would turn out just like this!
Please...keep writing for this fandom!

I love this. If I don't like how things turn out on the show this season, I'll just pretend that this is what happened hehe :-P
| gsrshipper chapter 1 . 12/21/2006
Wow. Just wow. That was so perfect that you've rendered me speechless.
| contrarymotion chapter 1 . 12/21/2006
wonderful story! It was very enjoyable to read and very believable. Great job.
| kiefersgirl1971 chapter 1 . 12/21/2006
Effin' brilliant (as normal with you). Have you considered doing a piece for the two weeks Sara's in Boston? I'd love to read the meeting between Sara and Ashley! Merry Christmas xx
