Reviews for It's The Thought That Counts
lightblue-Nymphadora chapter 1 . 3/8

fledge chapter 1 . 1/17/2011
I always adore your Polly/Mal fics, especially - once again, how you make the reader read between the lines. And that summary in itself is priceless. A whole lot of lovely things apart from the plot - like Mal's "the dead were supposed to rest in peace". Fantastic ho extremely lively she can and does become.

In the final scene, I'm not sure I get everything:

"... cheek resting comfortably against Polly's chest, heartbeat a steady drumming against her ear." - So it's Polly's heartbeat, obviously. And a few lines later: "Polly, heartbeat to heartbeat with that truth, the slow basedrum to her increasing fast flutter..." So this time the basedrum is Mal's heartbeat - or am I missing something?

Thanks for a lovely lttle(1) piece, anyway.

(1) Well, little as far as your average chapter length is cocerned.(2)

(2) Which reminds me I still have to work through that other chapter of yours...
