Holy. Crap. So when Sheldon asked Leonard if he'd recognize him, and he made all of those weird face, he was referring to his...bedroom facial expressions? Wow. That's pretty freaking awesome. XD
This was really cleverly executed. This is the first BBT fic I read that was written in Leonard's POV, so that alone was an original and creative way to tell the story. I liked how you showed just how well Leonard knows Sheldon, yet at the same time, that he's still genuinely stumped by Sheldon's actions most of the time because, well, it's Sheldon, haha.
Howard and Raj were great in this, too. Very in character. Howard's line about the guys seeing him as a sex god and Leonard immediately saying, "No, we don't" was so funny.
I loved the epilogue. Very sweet with just a touch of implied naughtiness, haha. ;)
Just one thing, though, there was one point where you accidentally shifted to third person with Leonard's line about him having to be Sheldon's translator. Other than that, though, great fic! :)

Loved your story.

I forgot how great a sense of humor you have. The Kanye/Kim joke was too funny. I love it when Sheldon goes mainstream. ;) And Stuart-con, ha ha ha! I want to go to there! You captured the humor of the show wonderfully.
My Shelnard feels are all over the place. I love their love for each other. Their friendship is one of the greatest ever! And like I've told you before, you characterization of all the characters are always IC, but your Leonard is my favorite! Kudos on making the story from his pov.
A wonderful, very true to the show story, Mari. I really enjoyed it... expect for the Sheldon sex faces, those I could have gone without. ;)

I totally forsee this event occurring in the final season because there's been so much hype about it. And it's really difficult to find new ways to 'make it happen', as they say. So telling it slighted, from an alt. pov, makes this a well-crafted piece of work. Kudos.

Gah! Absolutely genius. Telling the story from Leonard's POV (Sheldon's unsuspecting bestie! Totally plausible) and including references to one of my favorite Holographic Excitation lines:
"There are certain things that say to the world, I have a boyfriend, and he’s not made up. Matching costumes, hickeys and sex tapes. Pick one."
OMG, he did ended up doing all three for her. Love!
Both the hickey explanation and the description about the faces he was making on the tape had me ROTFL. Did I spy a reference to Jim's Rocky Horror performance too? LOL. That couldn't be a coincidence.
Howard/Raj's juvenile ribbing, and their apologizing later, was very much IC. The whole condom revelation and subsequent conversation was both funny and endearing in showing the guys' bond.
Loved the epilogue too and how Amy ended up distracting Sheldon.
Thank you for this, dear Mari! :D

Great story! The dialog was spot-on and you met the requirements of your fic exchange. I would like to see this continue, but you did an excellent job with a one-shot. One day, Sheldon *will* succumb to temptation :-)!

Oh my goodness, that was so funny! Poor Sheldon!

This was really clever to tell the story from Leonard's pov. His opening monologue was brilliant. I felt that you captured every essential nuance of his character, his love and acceptance of Sheldon, as well as his exasperation and frustration at Sheldon's shortcomings. Howard and Raj were also well sketched, but Leonard was really the stand-out in this one. The incidents that should have clued Leonard in were each such genius, true-to-character moments. I almost feel cheated that they weren't given full story status separately. The bruise given by a flying squirrel was particularly hilarious. Only Sheldon would think of that as a rational explanation. And Sheldon, err, Bertrand giving his "other person" a gift certificate to the train store was another classic selfish Sheldon move. Love your stories, Marisol. I always know I'm in for a treat! Thanks so much for your hard work, and for sharing your imagination with us readers.

I like the way you told the story. It's nice that you use Leonrard's POV. Great job. I really miss your stories that's why I am so happy to read this new one

I loved this! Thanks for writing!

I did not get the couples costumes, hickeys and sex tapes things until I read a review, but now that I do I think it's absolutely brilliant, and just makes me love this story more. You know I'm a fan of all that you write, but this one is going right at the top of the favorites list. When Sheldon said, "My condom," I experience about the same head whirling as Leonard did, and yet it is what it is - but it's simply stunning to hear come out of Sheldon's mouth. Yet, it's also very rewarding at the same time.
I really love every second of this story, you capture the world in which it's so fun to live vividly and truly. You've outdone yourself with this story, and I hope you are proud of it!
