Thanks so much for sharing this story with us! Unusual setting and take on the characters, which is refreshing and fun.
It became clear that you must be getting a number of comments pointing out things that were not accurate for 1917 Russia. I think because the story is well-written and you draw a clear picture of the surroundings and characters, people feel that any inaccuracies must be merely accidental. And that by pointing them out they are likely trying to help. Mostly, one assumes.
To be honest, for the first half, I'd assumed the time period was much later. Because of small clues like references to them watching TV or movies at home. (Google says TV was invented around 1927, not widely available in the US until the 1940-1950s. I've got to assume Russia wasn't ahead of that schedule.) It doesn't particularly matter to the story.
It would add a layer of interesting depth to the story to accurately show life in Russia, Russian/world ballet at that time. Although I imagine that the life of poor artists is much the same as depicted.
Anyway, I enjoyed you story and appreciate your sharing the product of your hard work with us. Thanks!

Where is this thing going? Alex and Bella? And has Bella not left this house in months? That can't be?

Um, yeah, Edward. Ya think?

What year is this happening in? They were watching TV? I thought this was in 1917? Recliners?

Why are these Americans in fucking Russia? Mississippi is more affluent. Why would any American with no money choose to live here? If you're a starving musician, head over to Nashville or New Orleans. You can play in bars for tips. But Russia?

What is Alex's deal? I don't understand his relationship with Edward at all.
| maphie chapter 20 . 4/27/2015
She's using Edward. I feel bad for her but she's definitely abusing him too.

Eww. This is getting more difficult to read. I'm sticking with it for a little while longer.

I can't wait to read about their back stories. I feel a lot of sadness in each of them.

Ugh Demetri as Bella's lover? I guess we will have to suffer through it.

I will miss this story, the characters, and the time. And I will miss hearing from you here, too!
Best of everything...thanks for sharing this! I'm glad I found it!

I knew someone had to die, but I was hoping it wasn't Alex...he was such a big character, for all of his faults! Poor Edward, and poor Garrett, both losing their love of sorts!
Wow, this was intense!
