Bleh, all these fictional characters have decent love lives while I'm stuck studying for school. This was really sweet though. Hope they don't get shot at. I saw some art for last chapter on deviantart btw. It looked pretty damn cool. See us next chapter.

Awww, I love them so much. Happy anniversary! This is still one of my favorite things in fandom.

Congratulations on the 5-year anniversary of Quite Peculiar! Phew, can't believe the fandom is that old. I stumbled in a little late to the party, after every book (even the Manual of Aeronautics) got released. Kind of sad to think that I never got to experience the tension of wondering how/when Alek would find out about Deryn, whether or not he would inherit the throne, and how much the books would deviate from history. Ah well, no use crying over spilled milk.
So, Valentine's Day fluff! And a history lesson to boot! You've got Alek and Deryn at their best here; the former hopeless in his desire to please his unorthodox love, and the latter much more practical than the ex-prince. I love fanfics that explore the differences between the two, and how that brings them even closer. It was actually heartwarming to have Alek concerned about getting Deryn a present even while being close to broke. All of the subtle moments that make the Dalek ship perfect were caught in this chapter. Quite fitting, the more I think about it!

This is great! I loved Alek and Volger's conversation, and the true-love knot!

Your diligence with this fic keeps this beloved series alive for me, something I'm extremely grateful for. Thank you for this sweet post! It was a pleasant surprise at the end of a stressful week.

OMIGOODNESS you're amazing! When I first saw this I was like, it's so long there's npt way it could be any good. But it's unbelievably wonderful:) i love the chapters from Bovril's point of view. It makes me want a loris so much. I also enjoyed Jaspert and Newkirk's point of view. Jaspert especially since he was e-Jaspert-ated(like exasperated *wink wonk*). I also wanted to say all the background info you looked up for these was greatly appreciated. Your use of British/Scottish colloquialisms are fascinated, mostly cause I have to define them all:) Thanks for the lovely fics. I'll definitely be rereading these.

Five years! Wow, congratulations! I would draw you fanart if I could draw things that looked like things I meant them to look like. ::grin::

Don't feel dumb for thinking that, as soon I finished the series I thought the exact same thing. So, thanks for making this!
