it's like a deleted scene from the movie - so completely-in-canon. really good!

Hey Elessar King

This was amazing. The whole piece flowed and wow...the emotions it stirred within me. This was so powerful and stayed so true to CR. I actually felt like I was there. Everything was perfect...

Thank you for posting

Very nicely done. As someone else has said, I like the characterisation implicit in Bond's practical attempt at reassurance as he runs through all the security angles he has been trained to see – but doesn't think to offer the emotional comfort that Vesper really needs. For that, she has to be brave enough to ask.

The emotional power of the shower-scene which gave her the courage to approach was partly in its silence, in actions and not words: when he's being real. This vignette feels true to that perception.

After I watched Casino Royale, I read a fair few Bond fics – this is one that I remembered, came back for, and read again.

Ooh, I love this. The shower one of my fave scenes in the movie and you've used it as a great jumping off point. Clever use of the literal and figurative meaning of the word cold. Fantastic!

very nicely written. I loved the Bond/Vesper relationship in Casino. Most in-depth I've really seen.

I love this!

Yay! I'm so glad you finished this story. I really like it! You really do know Bond better than me. I think you captured both his and Vesper's feelings perfectly. I love how Bond goes over the tactical advantages and disadvantages of the room while he assures her she's safe. That's just what would be running through his mind!

Very well done. :-)

This sweet, and so perfect. You have their characters down. I always enjoyed James Bond movies but was never a fan until I saw Casino Royale about a week and a half took my breath away and I just loved everything about it...this cold man that fell in love against his nature then was forced to deal with the repercussions of it. It isn't Lord of the Rings(my favorite of all time...and maybe yours considering your penname? :) ) but I love it death and this was wonderful. thanks for the great moment. :)

Such a wonderful and sweet story.

I think you pictured both Vesper and Bond very well.

I hope you'll be writing more about them.
