Aaaaaaugh! SO adorable! So, yeah, I saw on your tumblr that this is a very popular story, and I completely understand why. It's so adorable. And smexy. Just, yeah. Kudos. Love it.

I'm a sucker for love stories, and this one is a sweet one. It's very fluffy but your characters are grounded and real, which in turns grounds the story. Most Shenkos (and Shakarians for that matter) seem to keep the characters in the story. I enjoyed meeting your Shepard and Alenko pre-Normandy. Well done!

Oh. My. Gosh. This is beautiful, and I loved every bit of it. What a gorgeous journey you took me on. I especially loved your parallels at certain moments, when both Kaidan and Alexis had the same thought processes or experiences. I'm a sucker for that kind of thing. I also adored the Third Day and 2183 chapters. The poor babies are so in love, and your writing is so wonderful, I got those lovely elusive butterflies that only invade my stomach when reading the best stories. Thank You.

Can I just say how much I love your mention of BSG?! Oh my God my two nerdoms collide! Brilliant, well-done fluff!

Alright, I know is was forever ago that you wrote this but I just read it and I LOVED IT! I mean, I have a lecture in 4 hours and I haven't got to bed yet because I was up reading this. It was really great, just wanted to let you know!

Oh my gosh! This was the sweetest love story I have EVER READ! This was beautiful! I hope you write more like this!

*sounds of wild cheering*
*liberal use of tissues*
This is fan-freaking-tastic. You deserve a bloody medal for writing this.

Oh, you devious woman! I didn't suspect anything from the first part of Alexis being on the range. Then I eventually got a clue - when Tom yelled "Kaidan" - but it's past midnight and I should be sleeping, and I'm up reading this fantastic story instead because I just can't put it down. And then you sent in the reporters and Shepard executes a neat redeployment to the rear, and completely *misses* meeting Kaidan.
You are, officially, more devious and better at plotting than I am. I bow to your skill. You are an N7 level writer.

Oh, man. I'm not sure if I want to cry or bang their heads together. Honestly! The only thing that makes the yearning in this chapter bearable is the sure knowledge that the Normandy posting will come up at some point, and they'll be together again. Sorta. Around the regs and all that.
Of course, the last lines you use per section - "should have gone after her/him" are blazingly ironic, because hello - Horizon, anyone?

I have a feeling I'm going to be saying that a lot. So, best you get used to it, OK?
This is seven kinds of awesome. Alexis is a live wire in a way that I haven't seen before. She's crazy, but not brooding. Incredibly fun, with incredibly hilarious and inventive inner dialogue. I laughed out loud at so many points in this chapter my husband started giving me weird looks. The sandcastle scene was AWESOME, and the dialogue between the two of them is fantastic. And then, right alongside the fun and the zip and the zing, you slide these tender moments in, and they're just so evocative that I want to cry. You, madame, are officially added to my "list of incredible authors that I need to read as often as possible" list.
If this is how you write when you're sick, then you need to catch the flu more often!

Whoa. Just... whoa.
This is freshly-imagined, new... and whoa. I think my screen just exploded.
This is AWESOME!
| Aelia Douglass chapter 5 . 3/5/2013
That was. Wow. Incredible.
You managed to write something absolutely amazing, and it's no wonder people were begging for a sequel. Or ten. You know.
| blackhawk68 chapter 5 . 2/16/2013
Ahhhhhhh, there's a sequel!? *squeals loudly and embarrassingly* Dear Lord, you have no idea how down right excited this makes me!
This story was written wonderfully, amazingly. The detail is practically perfect and you got the sex scenes down in a way that most people can't: artistic and beautiful but not explicit in the bad way or unrealistic. Don't get me wrong, sex scenes can be written pretty damn raunchily without being horrible, but some are so damn unrealistic and over the top that it makes me want to hit my head against a wall.
And good god, the characterization and the connection between the two. And the geek thing! Jesus, I always saw Kaidan as the dry humor geek that really has no business in being so fucking attractive. And you nailed it! And I love the scar moments and it makes so much damn sense that Kaidan, above all, would be the most sympathetic and caring and knowing that scars shouldn't always be viewed as, "Oh, you've gone through some shit but you're so freaking cool for it! You kicked ass!" but rather mostly as, "You've gone through some real shit and I wish you hadn't have had to."
Your Shepard is freaking awesome, by the way. I just can't. I already shipped Shenko so damn hard but now I ship them even more and I just want them to be together FOREVER.
Okay. Rant done. Sorry about the novel, but you deserve the praise. Well done, wonderfully done. I'll be going through your works and hopefully reading the sequel if it's up. :D
