A lovely follow-up, perfectly consistent with canon and their characters. It makes sense that Edith's experience would remind Mary of Matthew's comment at the altar. It's so nice to read a fic where the two of them are intimate without it turning into sex. It wouldn't feel quite right for such a night, but this conversation was perfect.

A beautiful story showing the love of Matthew and Mary

I so appreciate how you express their love, commitment, and need without having to use smut. There is so much smut written that I am finding stories without smut have more weight emotionally. I hope that makes sense! Because some stories contain smut that helps convey the emotion, but lots of smut is just for fun and doesn't particularly do anything for the characters or the story.

Lovely scene! Whatever life has on their way, they love each other so much, and that's the guarantee for happiness.

You write such wonderful story about M/M. You know their characters so well.
This makes me happy as I was missing their married closeness in canon and did not think I would get it so I turned to fan fictions...

Aww! Such a sweet scene - I loved the idea that no matter how much they fought, they always slept in the same bed. :D And I truly adored the idea that Matthew wasn't sure if Mary would show up...but Mary always knew Matthew would. :) So fitting, and so touching - especially given what happened to Edith. "I'm grateful for you." Just...AWW. :D Just beautifully written - keep writing! :)

perfect! I really wish we could of got a scene like this in 3x03, your writing is brilliant as ever.

Very nice! Very poignant. Poor Edith.
I liked the sounds in the beginning, the pearls on the desk and the click of the door. It gave it the feeling of intimacy right away.

That was so perfect and fabulously written! My babies together and happy : )
| Audrey C chapter 1 . 10/7/2012
Beautiful filler. Everything was perfect about it. I could really imagine this happening on the show. I know they have to show other characters' stories but for me, they just don't show enough M & M scenes!

Gah, my dear, that was PERFECT. Just absolutely perfect. Perfect, perfect, perfect. Not one line or word that could possibly be better. Perfect.
Just like them. :) :) :)

Heart warming and so very true. They almost missed each other, for a number of reasons, but they found a way to come back to each other and they will stick side by side for all their lives. That came across beautifully.
As for Edith, I agree with Cora and I think JF made a very bold, but with so much potential to explore, choice. I can't wait for Edith to take hold of her life and to choose to be the woman she can be.
Very well done, my dear ;)
