I hate to be that person but... You used the word like so it wasn't a metaphor it was in fact a simile(I like the fic though)
| MyGuiltiestPleasure chapter 2 . 2/10/2013
Perfect! I will have to read 'The Dutchess' now:-)

Oh my. I loved the dialogue, and the entire text that went with it; such nice wording and style.
It's also really good to know that Dean is the king of smooth-talking no matter the setting.
A really nice, short tale of love and power :D The fruit metaphors... were basically the cherry on top of it. /shot

I...that was just...oh my god. I am speechless. This was just...really really amazing. Wow. I love the way you wrote and the story...just...unf!

Oh, my! There is something about this era and those two that really catches my fancy.
| Bookjunk chapter 1 . 2/1/2012
Wow, hot, hot, hot.
I know little to nothing about period detail and speech, but it seemed accurate. I like the rich details you put in everywhere and how you manage to find the right word for every emotion racing through them as well as for each decoration.
And words ARE sexy. That's a fact. Especially out of the mouths of Dean and Castiel, as you write them.

I love the dialog, the way they talk back then, upper class style. I read Dorian Grey once and got lost in the dialog, how they talk about one thing but mean another or a third thing. It's lovingly confusing (the Dorian one atleast)! Yours was poetic and I love it.
I love love love it!
Oh and _ Lovely sex-sceene too

I liked the juicy fruit metaphor. I'm not so sure a juicy ass is a good thing however;) Was that to crass? Dang it, I will lose my rep as a classy broad. Seriously hot scene:) My only problem with period pieces is smell. What I mean is during this time period no indoor plumbing (which is the greatest invention ever). So people bathed once a month and a laborer like Dean even less:o There is musky and downright smelly. So I picture Castiel with too tons of fancy french scent and a big ole powered wig trying to cover up his royal BO. Meanwhile Dean hasn't bathed in a month and has spend the day working in the garden during the heat of the day. Now they are roll around on top of each other during a hot day in a castle with no air-conditioning. There is just this kind of smelly thing going on in my head. Like a black dirty cloud is hovering over them.
But this is my issue your writing is excellent as always:) I'm the chick who watched "All Hell Breaks Loose (Part 2)" after Sam comes back from the dead. He and Dean are eating pizza with and all I can think is how many days has Sam been dead in those clothes? Plus the abandoned house doesn't have plumbing or electricity, so yeah jump in the Impala and drive all the way to Bobby good plan. That car must have reeked! Plus back from the dead to a house with no water to brush your teeth! Man that death breath must have been something else! Unless he used one of these 2 liter bottle of soda to brush his teeth. So we have Sam in the Impala wearing clothes he has been dead in a couple of days with Death Breath. No really super sexy. No wonder I'm a Dean girl;)

I know it is supposed to be a happy ending but it is still kind of sad. The woman is stuck in a loveless marriage (though she may have her affairs) and Cas and Dean have to sneak around.

If you ever, ever, EVER doubt your writing skills, I am going to pull this story out, frame it in gilt, peonies, and pears, and cement it to your bedroom door.
I mean, sure, you KNOW I am partial to period smut, but holy jeebus on crackers, this was... twenty-five minutes in, and you have the whole concept of the era DOWN.
This is so good that I want to kick Cas and Dean out of it, and tell them to take a freakin' hike, so that you can write it out fully, gorgeous, slowly, eloquent, submit it to a publisher, get it published, and get paid for being so incredible.
This is prose porn. This is heady and thick, and Cas is so fabulously overwrought that I can't even BLINK while reading lest I miss a change in his mood.
FUCK so amazing.

Nice. You know, you've probably won the trophy for most (and best) movie-inspired AU's done in the shortest amount of time. ;D

My god, the fruit metaphors. I will never look at fruit the same way again.
