I loe this story i just spent the last couple hours reading the entire thing and it is amazing. I just recently watched the movie (twice in a matter of 24 hours) and It has instantly and easily become my favorite movie. This story is a perfect carry on from the movie and is exactly how i imagined everything playing out. Thanks so much.

This is by far the best fan fic I have ever read! Brilliantly written, soft and gentle yet totally believable! And long, which was wonderful. I cannot wait to read your other stories, and i'm sure that they are going to be stunning (I'm especially looking forward to the Sherlock ones! :D) Please keep writing, you have an innate talent that I am so grateful to have been able to experience it! x

this entire story is so good it can be used as a sequel to the movie. i only watched the film a few days ago but it left me with such a rejuvenated feeling of faith in love and it's possibilities. i would go to work and come back home, then immediately continue reading from where i left off! for some reason i felt connected to these characters, and when the film was over i felt like something was missing. i needed to kno what happened after! you gave me this funny sort of closure, knowing that their lives went on and progressed like normal couples ( living, loving, fighting, learning to trust, marriage!). it made me fall in love with my own boyfriend all over again! what the film lacked in character development, you made and turned straw into gold. you even created new characters! adam and mark were great as a counter to zach and shaun. everything was perfect. thank you so much for writing this amazing piece of work and good luck in your writing future!

"I said, marry me, Zach. Once this Proposition 8 stuff is gone, I want to make it official. We can fly to New York and do it next week if you want, but I am telling you, I'm serious about all of this, so don't give me
any more crap about not belonging, okay? Just marry me."
I think now that DOMA and Prop 8 have been decimated, this part is begging for an epilogue! ;-D

Totally enjoyed your story. Your writing style is fluid and smooth. It is so easy to see Shaun and Zack. You stay true to their personalities, which I adore. I love your jump to M rating and that also was well written. Now I will go read your other stories. Awesome!

this is a cute story. i liked when you began to slow down the narrative and describe moments and events. i think that started around when they went for shaun's mom's party - nice decision. these two are sweet.

ooh. exciting ending. steven showing up was certainly a surprise. he is quite the asshole.
two random comments before i continue reading as i am very interested to see what happens next!
first, i wanted to mention that, flying within the us, you don't need to go through customs. just exiting/entering - so shaun wouldn't have had to worry about that.
second, when shaun returned home, you blocked off a lovely section marking it as mature. it really wasn't. it didn't matter bc i was reading it anyway, but someone who wanted to avoid the sex might have missed out on a really nice affectionate moment (also cody leaving for a play date). these two don't show very much affection in this fic. it seems strange that a very mild and respectful moment of affection was warned off...

What a treat! I've just read the 14 chapters in one go and SO enjoyed them. The characterisation is spot on and all the storylines were just great. Thank you so much. Hope you'll be writing again for Shelter very soon.

This was the first piece of fanfiction I ever read.
You made me cry. So. Much. The chapter at Shaun's mum's party, the idea of the adoption and wedding. Then the actual wedding and finding out they got Cody. And the flashbacks to the 'Take a compliment' scene and the night before. Never has a book or whatever made me feel like that.
Shelter is my favourite film ever, and you just made it 10 times better.
