Love Abbie's meditations in the car as they're driving. The cat example was funny and perfectly apt. It's sweet how she's trying to think of an articulate way to compliment him. Loved the distinction between wife and partner roles and Katrina. That was insightful and perceptive. Loved how Crane tries to figure out the etymology of a slang phrase like "lay it on me" by comparing it to Atlas and his worldly burden. Brilliant! So Abbie's gift is the gift of humor, which is much needed in their lives right now. Thanks for sharing. Another great chapter.

I am... speechless.
Your gift of language is just... your voices for both characters are simply astounding. I am an enormous fan of eloquence, of beautiful language used beautifully, and your command of both archaic and modern idiom is breathtaking. Your use of imagery, of metaphor, your meticulously crafted internal voices are all spot-on and I sort of want to bathe luxuriously in them. Or at least read them for hours on end.
Brilliant. Looking forward to more.

This was just great! Love the way you're continuing to balance Crane and Abbie moments (and soon damn fine dialogue!) with a really mysterious case. Loving it! *high five* :) x

THere are so many things I love about this fic, but the line about 'he had crafted a heartfelt sentiment and packaged it up with beautiful words and she didn't know how to accept it' just broke my heart oh my god. Your writing is beautiful and I hope you continue writing for this fandom.

Oh sweet Jesus you're alive. So good to see something new by you on a random readthrough of Manipulations. I don't know what this Sleepy Hollow business is but I'll study it and then come back and read this fic if only because I've missed your writing style so much.

The way he sees Katrina here is fascinating. Really insightful stuff, more lovely writing...totally hooked. Thankyouandmoreplease :D Pleeeease? ;) x

Haha! The writing here is nothing short of Kick ass :) Love Crane's observations of scent and the way you've captures the characters' different voices so far. Also- your case is really interesting. Really believable as something you'd see on the show. I order you top pat yourself on the back. Immediately. Now ;) Haha. Thanks for posting this. It's excellent!x
| Dina C chapter 4 . 12/3/2013
Interesting and puzzling. I look forward to reading more about this mystery.
| Dina C chapter 3 . 12/3/2013
Thanks for another fun chapter to read. I liked his ruminations on scent and perfume since I'm a perfume wearer and collector. I liked the moment when she called him cute and how he tried to figure it out. :-)
| Dina C chapter 2 . 12/3/2013
Yeah! I guessed it before it was revealed - she was turned into salt like Lot's wife who turned to look back at Sodom. :-) Another great chapter. Loved "hearing" Crane's interior reflections this time on Abbie's strengths of character and her professionalism. Very nicely done. Thanks.
| Dina C chapter 1 . 12/3/2013
Loved the clever use of the Backspace key in the beginning and how you anthropomorphized it. Loved her interior reflections on how her job has changed, how enormous the contrasts are between her world and Crane's old world. Very nicely done. Thanks for sharing.

Love your style of writing, it is hard to describe but I find it soft and subtle. You don't hammer down your words. They come at the reader gently and they seem to weave into your thoughts so easily.
I am looking forward to updates.
