Wooo for updates. I especially liked the part at the end with the hands touching and then the whole 'oh screw it' moment. Very nice bit. Mushy but not overly so!

This is so beautiful. I am so glad you have added even more depth to their relationship. I can't help it, I must say that this story is by far my favorite here.

For the moment I thought that Nate will ruin everything. Uff, it's great that these two finally came to an agreement. :)

Yay an update! And what a powerful one with the whirlwind of emotions battling all senses creating the perfect storm. For all his life Nate has been trying so hard to be acknowledged and approved it's no surprise he would feel utterly inadequate compared to Alistair and Loghain and that he didn't deserve someone like Kya...or any kind of happiness really. He'll have to learn to accept himself and not let his bitterness get the better of him. Kya is the perfect light in his darkness and I'm glad he's willing to take a leap of faith. And Kya continues to amaze me with her wisdom, grace, strength and conviction.
Wonderful chapter as always.

Yay! Update! :)
Nate is just so determined to punish himself, trying to compare himself to Alistair and Loghain and the relationships they had with Kya. Nate is neither one of those men and Kya isn't a woman who is about to let him live in the shadow of either one. She loved Loghain with all her heart, but he's gone...Nate doesn't need to worry about competition from him, yet he does. I was glad to see him finally put his fear aside and grasp at the chance Kya is giving to him. It's good to see that she, too, is ready to move on. Loghain will always have a special place in her heart, but she has seen that the heart has the capacity to grow. Loving Nate now doesn't mean she loves (and loved) Loghain any less.
Loved the update!

I remember how much I loved your story, my favorite pairing so beautifully written... Come back?
| Josie Lange chapter 15 . 6/11/2011
Well, I wasn't as far behind as I thought. I remember reading your tale a year ago and I'm very happy to see you update!
I've enjoyed the tension you've built between Kya and Nate. He knows he's feeling something for the woman who killed his father and conscripted him, and he doesn't know whether to jump for joy or jump off the nearest tower.
Kya is afraid that her feelings for Nate are a betrayal against Loghain. She'll never stop loving him and is afraid to move on, even though he gave her his blessing to live and love again before he left for Montsimmard. He didn't want his leaving and Calling to make her as bitter as he had become. Perhaps the trip into the Deep Roads was her way of saying goodbye to Loghain; the best way to honor his wishes and memory would be to do what he asked of her...live and love again.
A wonderful update, no matter how late in coming.

Ack, forgive me for not finding this until now! I very much enjoyed Sensible Creatures...so now I find myself having to play catch up with your sequel! I certainly will though.
I'm a shameless Loghain girl, but Nathaniel isn't too far behind. I'm very excited to see how Kya and Nathaniel will interact.

It's wonderful to see an update to this story.
You have a beautiful style. The words just flow together so seamlessly. And this was visually lovely: The skin was as smooth as it looked, like fine brushed, sun-warmed suede.
Nate seems like such a natural for Kya, especially after her fiery and tempestuous relationship with Loghain. And while she will always love Loghain, she is moving on with her life and that's something Loghain very much wanted.
Awesome to see the update!

Very hot! I thought this story was dead. I'm glad you revived it. Thanks.

Omg woman, welcome back and damn you, you end on a cliffie. How could you.
This is such a wonderful story and I've loved every minute of it. Now you're back and you give us another wonderful instalment and then "Stop". You are truly a bad, bad woman lol.
There I am holding my breath thinking about bloody time, they belong with each other. Way to go guys, and you stop lol.
Well hopefully you wont delay longer than a month to get us another instalment out (otherwise I'll have to release my hell hounds to route you out lol).
Thank you for a wonderful piece of writing.

I'm glad you didn't abandon the story and found your way back to it. And gee, I wonder where this is all leading? *whistle* :)
| cccfffsss chapter 15 . 5/30/2011
My heart is still broken over Loghain's letter and I'm not ready to move on yet, but I'm glad Kya doesn't see Nate as a replacement.
| unlock.your.heart chapter 15 . 5/28/2011
I'm so glad you've updated! All your stories are awesome and this newest installment made my day. It was very Kya and Nate who're both serious people most of the time, with just a dash of sweetness.
It was perfect :)
Excited for more!

Nice! You should get more reviews for this story, but I guess most people don't look up Amell/Nate :P
