| HazedRecollection chapter 12 . 9/25
It's funny. This is a nearly nine year old story, which in terms of fanfiction is positively ancient. And yet every single time I feel the urge for a bit of well written, humorous sword and sorcery I dig around the internet until I find it again. I can hardly ever remember the name between readings so finding it can sometimes be a bit difficult - I once managed to track it down by doing a Google search for "snarky Sand/KC" and another time by searching for "The Traveling Ranger and Paladin Show".
But I digress. The point I was trying to make is that YOU ARE FREAKING AWESOME. THIS IS FREAKING AWESOME. Thank you so much for taking the time and effort the better part of a decade ago to write something so wonderful and then gift it to the various citizens of the Internet.
Also somebody really needs to create a vaudeville act called The Traveling Ranger and Paladin Show. That would seriously rock.

"It was... rather thin and nasal, actually, and it really had a grudge against her uncle Duncan."
I would be cracking up over Sand's passionate chemical romance but I haven't been able to breathe properly since reading this.

This is fantastic - had me practically rolling around with laughter. Perfect in every way (though I spotted a typo on 'dragon' in the last chapter, missing the 'n'). Favorite chapter was definitely the one where they first met Mother Haggard. Adored Sand, I imagined everything said in his voice, you wrote him so well in this. But all my favorite parts were the ones where Ammon Jerro also had a part. All in all, pure gold. 10/10.

Hope you continue this at some point-I loved reading it!

yila - Drow for Rabbit

This was so funny and induced multiple laugh/coughing fits! I swear I could hear Sand's voice throughout the whole thing!

An interesting story, I suppose all I can do is hope that it will one day be completed.

You have now addicted me to Sand romance fics. Thanks. Seriously, though, this is amazing! You made me giggle endlessly, and you portray Sand perfectly.

I know I'm catching this forever after it was published... but I adore NWN2, and I adore Sand, and I think this is an incredible story. I adore the sarcasm and the humour, and I just want to eat your Sand up with a spoon. :3 Bravo!

Absolutely wonderful. The characters are spot-on, with some beautiful lines, the OC is actually original and interesting, and clearly perfect for Sand.
Some of the humour seems a little out of character - the choc-chip cookies, for example, seem both anachronistic and a little slapstick - but you handle it so gorgeously, who cares? I particularly loved Casavir's refusal to 'defend the cookie-baking honour of Tyr' and Ammon licking the bowl while still looking evil.
There are simply too many things to praise to mention them all - Bevil and the haystack, the 'Nailed Knight Captain' report, with admirable competence, Construct with orc hat... the neat line 'Ammon, raining down death from the sky as though he'd invented it'.
The only real criticism I have to make? No updates.
C'est la vie.

I suspect you're tired of everyone asking, but... is there any chance that you might continue writing this? I was recently reminded about this story and read it again. And it's still far beyond genius. Even better than Pratchett, and that's the kind of praise I never thought I'd give anyone :)
| Caelistis.Rydraline chapter 12 . 2/25/2011
This is absolutely amazing. Completely hilarious, and utterly amazing. Any chance at all of it being continued?
| Sanityfaerie chapter 12 . 2/12/2011
Mother Haggard makes me squee. That is all.
| Sanityfaerie chapter 1 . 2/12/2011
That may be the most delightfully warped little bit of WAFF I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Thank you.
| Guest chapter 12 . 12/20/2010
Hahaha, this is adorable and funny at the same time. I love it! Especially Sand's utter phobia of dragons and Casavir and Bishop's endless snarkfests. Awesome!
