Grim and terribly beautiful. Well written in pictures that were realistic, almost as if you had seen this, pictures that stood out in my mind. That and the sound of breaking wigs. Wonderfully detailed, and a fest of creativity this almost not alternate reality that could have easily been canon.

I especially loved the Bill sequences. His dream (damn! a dream) was palpable and heavy with expectation and his unease was so cuddlesome cute :9
The final twist with the scarf was rwuar!, leaving me wanting a sequel, while it on the other hand rounds the piece perfectly and no sequel is needed.


Author's Response: Bless you, my dear, for that last clause!!

And I'm also very glad you enjoyed it.

I liked it muchly. Too bad there was no romance the night before. But the snuggling contented me and I trust you will fix the lack of romance, later. :D

Interesting plot.
I can't see where this would go without getting very soapy and predictable, so I'm not begging for more, but I liked the way this plot bunny worked out.

“Her rack, either.”
“Never mind, then.”

That had me laughing out loud.
I loved your direct line twist. It's so logical that it made me grin.

Thank you for this story.


Author's Response: Yay, somebody liked the Saul thing. I was actually laughing when I wrote that. He's just an open opportunity for amusing lines, to me.
