| Shanghaied in LaLaLand chapter 21 . 1/26/2013
Sorry I haven't reviewed lately. But this was so wonderfully done and I loved how you carried the theme of temporality through the entire fic. That sense of inner time between the two of them is conveyed in every fine detail. It is bittersweet, though, knowing that in canon M/M didn't have "all the time in the world." ... Hope you will continue to find the inspiration to write for M/M. It can't be easy these days.

Thank you so much for finishing this, it was such a perfect ending and ultimately it didn't matter, whose she was. And I have to say I loved the nod to that scene 3x01 when he didn't enter until he was granted entry and the "I need to kiss you very much". So wonderfully incorporated into the story :)

Hi, I loved this story and I'd love to read an epiloge...
| R. Grace chapter 21 . 1/23/2013
Oh, what an absolutely perfect ending! I loved Matthew falling in love with his daughter and thinking about "his family." So sweet. :)
I do hope you do an epilogue. I'm rather curious to know if the baby's eyes stayed blue.

What a perfect ending. I think the not knowing, but accepting, is the perfect conclusion here.
I would like to see an epilogue, just because Ilove this couple so much :)
Thanks for sharing this wonderful story!

What lovely ending! I really like the ambiguity - they know what's really important. Thank you for this beautiful story!

This chapter really brought tears to my eyes. So very touching. Brilliant in every way possible. I have enjoyed this story so very much. Very sad to see it end but glad that you really finished it up nicely. Of course I would love to read an epilogue. So glad it's a girl. This way, either way, it wouldn't be as painful for them to have doubts about the heir. But even if their daughter ends up with brown eyes, that could be because she takes after Mary completely. Even if they one day feel they know for sure, I think the little family will still be ok. Would love to see them have several more kids in the epilogue! Thanks so much for this story.

write the epilogue
| iLLaine chapter 21 . 1/21/2013
Do you really believe that we don't want an epilogue after this story? Do you need to ask? ;-)
Your description of Matthew is so well done: of course poor Matthew feels so useless and anxious, of course he will love the baby, but what really caught me is: " and it struck her again. How he asked… Matthew always asked." So characteristic of him and his relationship with Mary, so finely observed on your part. And I truly like the reinterpretation of the scene with the door.
So now we wait for the epilogue with a lot of kids with blue eyes!

Sigh. :D A beautiful and truly earned ending to an emotional, vivid and real portrait of a relationship and a marriage. :) I LOVED Isobel SO MUCH - her straight-forwardness and the affection for both Matthew and Mary underneath it all ("Does it matter?"...perfect :) And the optimistic ambiguity of the child's parentage was just SO well-done. :D (baby's eyes don't necessarily stay blue! ;) M/M were just marvelous here - especially the revised door scene! :D "Letting someone in" seemed to be a main theme of the story, so it made so much sense to revisit it here. :) I've loved the journey you took us on with M/M, and while I'd love to come back to this universe if inspiration strikes you, I couldn't think of a better place to end the story. :D Congratulations on this true labor of love - PLEASE keep writing! :D

To me the child's paternity was always a side issue. I always knew that once the child was born Matthew would love it unconditionally even if it came out with a Turkish accent. So his glee and lack of questions didn't surprise me. The journey of the story to me was never about determining the father, it was about Matthew and Mary realizing how much they loved and needed each other. Brilliant job on this one OS.
Please write more fanfic- be it DA, Summer in Feb or original stuff. I love reading your writing so much.

Thank you for making this such a beautiful ending...so full of emotion and love and tenderness. Man, I love Matthew!
| Guest chapter 21 . 1/21/2013
I know that we know that Matthew will love her regardless of her heritage but i want an epilogue in which you can clearly see that the girl has baby blue eyes. You have focused so much on the "is the baby/isn't the baby" during this entire fic, it's basically 50% of the plot that to leave it ambigous seems like there is no closure in the story, at least for me.
I do want an epilogue and i do want those baby blue eyes belonging to both daddy and his little girl.

You also write Mary and Matthew so well - I can practically hear the actors reading the lines. Well done!

Lots of great insight and I love that you gave Violet a great, witty dig - so in character :)
