I love this. It's so beautifully, essentially Chryed, everything I love about the pairing and everything I will so painfully miss. You are a fab writer, well done. :) Ellen

Awww! I love your writing, it's always so detailed and real. It's like you get the characters without even trying... EE need someone like you on their writing team! Love the thought of Syed trying out a new (and rubbish) nickname on Christian in bed, it's just the dorky sort of thing he'd do :p And Christian wanting someone to care enough about him to give him a nickname is so sweet. I love that he has someone to love and care for him and be his family now. :)

Just love love love! Can't wait for the next one!

They are just so cute. -_-

I love how Christian calls him Sy. I love that it stood for simplicity throughout their complicated relationship and now stands for calm in amongst their busy lives. And it's probably easier to call out during sex /not a perv

And Clarkeyy. But first, lol Chris. It's amazing how much that nickname doesn't suit him at all, and I don't even know why? But Syed practically begging for him to continue was hot in amongst the sweetness of the ficlet :P

Me loves the comparison between them, and how symbolic they are too - Sy, a shortening of the word, making it simple as Syed would like his own life to be. And Clarkey, cute and affectionate, rather domestic, as Christian has now settled down.

I love it. I love them. And I love this fic.

Oh, and I love you!

Aw, this is totally how I imagine it to be. And I like how basically they can't have sex in the shower anymore because it's too dangerous thanks to their...enthusiasm. -_-

Syed does secretly love it. And getting a kiss for his trouble isn't so bad 8)

Me loves it! Next one pleeease -_- xx

Cooking is totally their favourite non sexual activity and you explained why so well. It was really their first activity of any kind that they did together, wasn't it? I love that connection. And they (well, you!) make it seem so sweet and Chryedy. Enjoyed their little touches too, and the comparison between the finished meal and their relationship. B-E-A-Utiful! :')

This is so gorgeous. Can't wait for more ficlets! I love your writing so much. You just capture Christian and Syed so perfectly.

This was all kinds of wonderful. So poignant and so them. A little tear has been shed. Thank you :) x
AllAboutMystery chapter 1 . 9/8/2012
This has just made me cry again. It's so beautifully written and definitely one of my favourites from yours. Absolutely LOVED the ending. Always looking forward for more :)

*sniffs*

I am so out of touch with leaving reviews, I've kind of forgotten how to make them! But this is just gorgeous. And made me well up (now there's a surprise!) This is perfect and they are perfect. Christian losing the protective veneer as he sleeps was great, and what I think happens too.

"It's not threatening, but clutching; rested next to a heavy head, as if Christian's dreams could only run to the cadence of Syed's heartbeat" and "...Christian curls in as tightly, as intimately, and as closely as he can without climbing into his skin" are beautiful lines. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the ficlets!

I think that is the best thing you have ever written. It is perfect. Thank you for making me cry (for the billionth time today) at for the power and beauty of your vision and the words you used to share it with us.

I love you for writing this. I love you for making me cry. Chryed will live on forever in our hearts and imaginations...wow this is just so moving and beautiful...I can't respond coherently. Thank you...I look forward to more ficlets!
