Wow. This is beautifully tender and hot! And I enjoyed how you integrated Ghost's past from the comics, as well as the reference to MacTavish's and Ghost's run in The Pit. Awesome references that made this story all the more believable and heartfelt!

Oh this was so beautiful! Officially my favourite story one of this pairing! And, finally, I was starting to believe I was the only one who saw McTavish as the more dominant of the two... Ghost is a really strong character, but all I see is an awesome but emotionally compromised char, and I cannot get out of my head several scenarios were, behind the scenes, Soap is the one keeping him together and the one where he can relax around. This story is exactly what I was looking for. I thank you for creating it and sharing it with us, making it possible for me to find it and read it!

this is not only a really lovely and hot story. I must also thank you for the beautiful poem you brought my attention to. But don't worry your story was just as enjoyable. The pair as the fandom are quite interesting and I think you portrayed them very well. It was not too soft and not too hard. Just perfect.
Thank you again :)

I loved your fanfic, the way you let their relationship rise from nothing to this totally unique friendship and to their love...!
I really enjoyed it! :)

Yeah. I did really enjoy this.
You've struck a really good balance between developing characters that we can understand and feel for and the erotic scenes themselves, that's worked out really well.
I liked your version of Ghost: that he fitted in and was liked by everyone, because I think he can be a tough character to write. I'd be interested to know more about how MacTavish feels when he's developing feelings for Ghost. I assume that he's not gay identifying, so it would be nice to see him rationalise his feelings in his head, as it must be quite a leap for him.
I'd like to see the elements of domination and submission detatched from the anal sex, because that's quite cliched in slash between two characters who are not men who have sex with men: that the recipient is submissive because they've chosen to receive anal sex. That's not to say that it's not impossible that their pre-existing conceptions of the roles of receiving in sex should not play a part, because I think that these sort of values are not unlikely, it's just that they are ubiquitous. If you want to make the scene more powerful, I'd focus on exploring the domination theme through sex acts that aren't anal sex.
This aside, I think you've done a really good job with the fic, and I'm impressed with the characterisation.

IT IS BEAUTEOUS.

This was the third time I read this and it still keeps me captivated. The story telling is smooth and I liked how you wrote MacTavish's character.
My favourite parts were The Pit and The crowded vehicle ride.

| Sam chapter 1 . 3/22/2011
This... is bloody amazing. The best piece of CoD fanfiction I've ever read, and I've been scouring the internet plenty. The fact you take time to develop the relationship instead of jumping straight into smut brings a lot of depth, and brings a closeness to the characters many other writers forgo. Please keep up writing like this.
| goose chapter 1 . 3/1/2011
