I am doing a St. Crispin's marathon on a rainy Sunday, and this one is too good for words. It can't get any better than this, so I'll have to stop now. Many thanks!

This was delightful! Illya and April having to teach in a high school was HILARIOUS. So much grading and prep! Also nice characterization with Illya (and his empathy for Bryan). The postscript is a nice touch ;)

Another really wonderful read! Too many things that I love to pick just a few... excellent dialogue and action. My only complaint is of the sleep I lose staying up reading such fantastic fic!

All I want to know is why my teachers never looked like Illya or April...although, I'm still wondering about Mr. Giroux. There was a 'sense' about him.

I think I've read this before, yes? It did nothing to distract from the story - just testing the little gray cells.

Your details are always great, the TAB reference made me smile. The characters are all true. I liked the balance of humor and action. Your dialog moves along swiftly and is easy to see who is speaking. I really liked this story.

As always, outstanding characterization, character interaction & byplay, particularly Solo & April and then Ilya & April.

I especially like Napoleon's understanding that he balances the ugliness of his job by sleeping with beautiful women, by finding and giving pleasure and sweetness, and how he and April can do that for each other without expectations of more.

An excellent job of setting the scene, be it Rio (the lights, the sounds, the size of the room and bed) or the school (I could almost smell the chalk dust and was amused by the reference to Up The Down Staircase).

I very much admire how you get every detail right and it makes the story so much more credible.
