This was amazing and hot and delicious and I LOVE Dom and Kel and IDBWEFJKÖBC!
And please do feel the need to write more sexy times with Kel and Dom, because you do it beautifully and there are FAR too few of them circulating the interwebs! 3

This... made me very, very happy. Positively well-written with the characters wonderfully portrayed-something I haven't seen too often.
I look forward to more of your fics!

First off... I absolutely love this story! (I just read through the chapters you've posted tonight! It's so rare to find a PotS story with an actual plot, character development, etc. Won't lie, I also loved the Kel/Dom sexytime. More sexytime I say! Keep up the great work!

I loved it! I love how you mixed them laughing and enjoying each other with the more intimate moments. :)

Hi, firstly this is so beautifully written.
I love the interplay between the two characters and how much depth of feeling you produced in a sex scene. So often writers rush the characters to bed without any thought of how they might feel. And shy embarrassed Kel was a much more realistic first time, than normally ever portrayed.
Also thank you very much for making Dom care and take his time with her. So often he seems to portrayed as a cad who beds endless ladies at court. Whereas in the books he's a flirt but doesn't seem to be with women all the time - he doesn't go on and on in the same way Neal does. I also don't think Kel would fall for him so much if that was the case or Raoul trust him so much with her as a squire.
I would love to read more of this intimacy between them, not just sexual but this type of conversation as Dom gets \kel to say so much that she normally hides.

Kya! I loved this scene! I read both versions, of course but I absolutely loves how you wrote the intimacy between Dom and Kel. I felt that it stuck true to their characters as well as show a deeper view into them without being OOC. That one line after Kel realizes she is crying where you wrote that it was like all those emotions she had hidden since growing up with the Yamanis had broken through, I have never read a more beautiful line. It made Kel's connect to Dom in that moment all the more real to me. I really hope to read more scenes like this from you.
I absolutely love this story and I can't wait for the next chapter. I get so excited when I get an email saying you have updated :)
Can't wait for the next chapter!

the first thing that occurred to me after finishing this- it didn't read like pron. and all i could say to that is thank the gods!
it was a good read. gave enough that if you wanted to you could have a very explicit kel/dom romp in your head but elusive enough so that if you didn't want to read a trashy romance novel, you wouldn't be.
not that i know what a trashy romance novel reads like. or erotica.
what? ... stop looking at me like that.
but back to your writing. you made it fun. enjoyable. it was an otherwise wholesome read if you ignored the fact that they were having the secks.
the prelude conversation with dom dithering about her decision was interesting. almost a gender role reversal. hell yeah, killing the gender stereotype.
now i have to go to the actual chapter in your fic and review that so that you'll have a higher review count. so, i've a decision on hand- copy/paste this, read that chapter and review it, or cheat and just say hi there. decisions, decisions.

I love it! (Can't say more now meant to be asleep)
| idleness chapter 1 . 5/29/2012
Nice, I think you caught the awkwardness of the first time well. Haven't we all been there! Kel's a little bit naive and self-conscious, and not used to using her body for pleasure, or thinking of herself as desirable. I like how you set up the context of the scene in the previous chapter of your story with her decision to live for the moment after a brush with danger, basically, and using breaks between their kissing to pad out what they want from each other. The idea of Dom treading carefully because he knows his own squad would dismember him if he stuffed it up is certainly amusing, but I think you've balanced that out by also showing that he doesn't want to stuff it up because he genuinely cares.
Although I can't help but imagine that after a long day of travel and making unicorn pin cushions, a healing, and having sexy times until well after midnight with a certain blue-eyed sergeant, that there will be a tired and distracted lady knight the next morning! Perhaps a conspicuously sunny sergeant on dawn watch, too. Of course, Neal will be too absorbed in mooning over his Yamani blossom to notice either.
