I totally agree with URMYSTICK in everything she said. Oh my - everything about DS is gorgeous, even his hands.

Awww I truly love all your stories, they are so so sweet and heartfelt while still remaining realistic for that era. I love all your future fics and hope you intend to write more fluffiness! Can not wait for season 3! :)

First of all, thank you for listing the reasons Mary loves Matthew. It was such a nice image to paint, personally (My favorite was to imagine his hair against the pillows around morning. Nice way to wake up, indeed. Oh, and the shoulders and muscles of his arms. I'm kind of centered on biology and I'm fascinated by fluid movements in narratives and somehow the description of his muscles made your story more dynamic... Don't mind me and my crazy babble about things I love to read). You constructed several qualities of Matthew and you phrase it in such a compelling way that nothing gets swallowed by the sea of words and I can see everything inside my head (But hey, consider that I may enjoy it more than I should). Anyway, I am obsessed with hands since my Mulder and Scully days, so you would win with me either way, but I loved the concept of something that is basically carelessly exposed be so intimate. Off course the way you write sensuality adds to the notion, but it was how you added texture and senses and made it so dynamic (This particular part is ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Followed by an induced heart attack: There was not another soul in the world who knew how deft his fingers could be, slipping a knot into silken ties as she writhed in breathless anticipation, or circling quickly in just the right way as to drive her mad with passion until she splintered under his hands.) and fascinating and sexual and great writing.

First and foremost, I will *never* be able to look at Matthew's hands the same way again. Anytime they zoom in on his hands, this fic is going to come to mind. Very, very hot! I loved how you set up the steam so perfectly and until you mentioned it just why of every part of her husband, especially taking into consideration the way you laid out how she sincerely enjoyed all of him from head to toe (literally), why she'd latch on to his hands. And then when she proceeded to think about *why* she loved his hands ... suffice it to say I needed a bucket of ice water for pouring over my head. Especially the *cough* silk ties *cough*. And then her anticipating of what those hands would do ... too much!

Absolutely priceless glimpse into the mind of a very very happy wife with a perfect and attentive husband. As always, wonderful wonderful work as always and thank you for posting this :) & looking forward to seeing what you wrote next!

I suppose since that early hand holding scene in S1, we've memorised those gentle hands..Any pair of hands that can swiftly mend a bicycle chain can execute other tricky tasks! -Silk wrist ties...Books and Bedposts...thought i'd get it there, oh OS, it needs to be done!

All this attention to the simple beauties of Dan Stevens, just intensifies my unhealthy obsession with him :-/ And the possibility that he may not want to sign further contracts for DA, is making me sick...

(And Pemonynen, 'handporn'..LOVE IT!)

Interesting considering one of Mary's first critiques of Matthew involved his hands - that he could barely hold his knife like a gentleman. Even then it seems her eyes had found their favorite focus.
eridani chapter 1 . 5/26/2012
What a lovely piece! It felt sort of half verse, half prose because of the concise development of a single idea, and the way phrases kept circling back. Really nice!

*gasps*

how the hell did you do that! I can hardly breathe. After the first description of Matthew's qualities I got distracted and started dreaming about Dan and some time later (lost track of time) I thought...wait, what was I doing and why did I start to fantasize about his shoulders and belly and pictures of him in a gym? Only then I kept reading. It's a job, loving this man, really.

And you know I'm OBSESSED with his hands...and AN ODE TO HIS HANDS is exactly one of the things I needed in my life. Because...his long fingers and...they seem pretty talented and...they're all lean...*dries sweaty forehead*

The idea of Mary loving his hands EXACTLY because everybody could see them was brilliant. It shows a side of Mary we didn't really know, the thrill of hiding something in plain sight, of knowing something everybody else ignored and that yet was there for everyone to see...it excites her, it arouses her because it's only HERS. Everybody can suspect she knows other parts of his body, being married, and nobody really knows what she's enjoying, but not everyone can KNOW how the same hands that shake clients' own hands, the same hands that touch glasses of port discussing with his father will later make her feel gloriously loved and wanted. I'm excited on her behalf, frankly.

I love this little kink of hers. It makes me think she'd lure Matthew in hidden rooms of the house or behind bushes (*cough*) with everybody just around the corner and have him right then and there because she can and nobody can stop her, however close they are. Little rebellious Mary, having something that it's only hers and being free from her family's duties because of it.

The description of what exactly those hands do...God, so erotic. I can't even. You're a talent!

PS: request - and I had never thought about it until I read this one shot but...M/M, silk, light bonding. Pleaaaaase?
Pemonynen chapter 1 . 5/26/2012
Well. Yes. Quite. *Coughs and fans self* I think I need a bucket of ice after that. So much HOTNESS.

I know that this is handporn (and oh what wonderful handporn ;)) but I love that you've made him ticklish, it's just so adorable!

Anyway. Clearly, I can't read, because on first reading, I COMPLETELY missed the silken ties... So...um...yes. It is spot-on though, that they are so because everyone can see, but only Mary *knows*. I do have a thing for his hands anyway, and now this is all I'll be able to think of whenever I see them. ;)

Love it. Thank you.
jupisan chapter 1 . 5/25/2012
God, wished I was Mary right now.

I want a snippet of the silken ties bit now.

Also the title: why you use it. Reminds me of in plain sight show that ended earlier this month and the main chacters weren't canon. :'(
TNMMRR chapter 1 . 5/25/2012
ooooo delicious. Especially after the angst from earlier. Its hard to pick one thing to admire about Matthew all though his hands and hair are definitely tops.
antigone chapter 1 . 5/25/2012
so, i'm just going to throw this out there: have you ever considered writing something for robert and cora? just curious, because with your talent, i think you could rock it . . . loved this!
Tripp3235 chapter 1 . 5/25/2012
I think you should devote one chapter to every part of Matthew's anatomy. We could then turn it into a wiki.
