Now this is a good" Feel Good" story. Thank you for writing this.

Well, it took them a while, but they finally got there. Both of them too stubborn for their own good, wasting a decade like that, but I'm glad they finally found each other. The beginning was blisteringly mad, the middle more content, the end like deliverance, Artemis finding himself again in Holly's eyes. I thought that was rather profound.
On another note, at first, I was aghast, feeling for Artemis' poor wife... you shouldn't marry someone just to escape... but if she was using him as well, that evens it out a little, I guess :P Mostly, I'm glad my favorite couple stopped pretending.

Isn't it interesting how as soon as a wife is revealed to have lovers the reader instantly doesn't care if she gets screwed over or not? I mean, when Artemis and Holly were 'reconciling' (for lack of a better word) I kept thinking 'But what about Marie?'. But as soon as it was told that she had lovers, I was like 'Nah. Divorce that b****'. As for the story, it's very good for what it is. The plot's a little old and recycled but its good and it's been used a lot for a reason. You writing style is, as usual, very good, a lot of description and metaphors and comparison-between-settings-and-characters to keep things interesting. Your dialogue is very realistic, your use of pauses is effective, I feel like a broken record I've said all this before. I will add one thing though, your writing is very exhausting to read. And I mean that in a good way. You always put in the deeper implications of things, or you focus a lot on detail and colour so the reader processes a lot of information at a time, which can be quite tiring. Tiring, in a good way, as in you're willing to be tired to read this, not tired as in you just want to give up tired. Just an observation.

Well, that was certainly a twist on the typical Hartemis fic, but I enjoyed it! Very nice job. Keep up the good work!

Wow that was amazing

Awesome story! It'd be even better if you'd turn into a two- or three-shot at least. Please? There's not nearly enough AxH being written right now, but at least the little bit that is, is good. (I hate double words, I always feel the need to separate them with a comma) But nonetheless I want to see Artemis and Holly further down the road from this experience, and if I could make another request, don't make it about the child. Make it about how their relationship has changed and they themselves interact with each other now, the AxH is what got me here so that's what I'd like to see.
P.S. I followed just in case you do extend it, hehe. :P

Ah, lovely :) I was having Brideshead Revisited feels for the first bit. That last line, is it a quote? It's something I fancy memorising, lol. Beautiful job!

I could see how you could expand this more, adding meat to the breaks and continuing past the ending to how people react.

I liked this a whole lot. So sweet. I loved every bit of it. I don't know what I like about this pairing SO MUCH. I just can't put my finger on it. Anyway, keep up the good work!

Great, now I want to cry.
So beautiful. That's just what they would do- get married or a boyfriend to convince themselves or the other that they weren't interested...
I feel like you could continue this if you wanted. Just a thought.
