Nice fic! I really enjoyed reading it.

So it's been a while since you originally wrote this fic, but I was just rereading HtS and realized that I really wanted to find some Johnny/Gareth background story. I knew the odds weren't good, since there are so few Sevenwaters stories out there, but lo and behold! Thanks so much for writing this, it was exactly what I was looking for and quite well-written to boot. My only qualm is that everyone was just a bit too accepting—I imagine, given the time period, that that wouldn't really be the case. Still, it was a good read. And if you've still got those oneshots floating around, I am definitely interested!

A wonderful story painting a wonderful picture of Johnny and Gareth. I always wanted to know more about their story, so this was perfect :) Thank you!

So, I really wanted to give you a awesome and eloquent review, but that's not going to happen because I have a really bad head cold. But I'll atempt it.
I really loved the Johnny/Gareth aspect in Heir to Sevenwaters, and if J. Marillier has decided not to give us more back story, this is totally what I would want for it. It's sweet and a little angsty, and the characters are well developed and very in character.
I was wondering if, perhaps, you'd consider letting me record this and make a podfic out of it? My livejournal can be found at dreaming-athena. is you'd like to hear my voice before deciding. Alternately, I could record the fic (or a part of it) and send it to you if you give me an email address, if you'd like to hear what it would sound like. Thank you for considering it.

Wonderfully written! This series is filled with great characters, and you do a great job of portraying them. I didn't expect to actually find any Sevenwaters fics went I went looking for them, so I was thrilled to see a Johnny/Gareth story. I loved what you did with this relationship, especially the non-proposal. Very sweet.

Cute. I usually don't read slash, but this was really good and I need more JM in my life.

That was absolutely lovely. I was thrilled to see a gay couple in one of Juliet's books, and the fact that there's this sweet fic for them (with Cathal providing comic relief) . . . like I said, lovely.

I'm so happy to have found this fic! Juliet Marillier needs more fanfiction! I wish I could read one good Faolan/Bridei story (no need for slash, I love friendship stories) but for now I'm content with this one )
I was surprised to see Juliet make a gay pair, I would have never thought that of her... she so into the romantic "needy man" and the "valiant woman"

Am very interested in oneshot series. JM needs more fics:)
I thought this needed more explanation in the book. how cool is the open-endedness of it all?
great job:)hope you continue with more like this!
