I love this fic! It's so optimistic and compassionate, so lovely in its fond and unqualified acceptance of and warmth for each person you write about here, all quirks and unusual characteristics included, so positive in embracing originality and diversity and in showing how it's all good, as long as these're good people at their core. The characters are all of them so distinctly described, I feel like I've met them personally! I could go on but then I already have, so I'll limit myself to another happy yay! for this wonderful fic!

OMG, so much love for this fic, SO MUCH LOVE!!! ♥ ♥ ♥

I'm so glad I didn't read the warnings, so the 'reveal' rather got me by surprise - and what a beautiful surprise that was. It rarely happens that I fall in love with a fic, but it happened with this one.

Thank you so much for writing and sharing this gem. ♥

Oh, hooray! I loved this fic and I had guessed it was yours! I have some interest in podficcing it if that's something you'd be up for. :)

Oh god yes, I flailed like a crazy thing that you've guessed and was dying to pop up and say something! But hey fest rules :) I know I'm so so late answering this, but of course I'm always so excited and flattered about possibility of podfic, so if you're still interested, that would be amazing.

Thank you again for reading and for all your kind words!

Yay, podfic! Okay, I had been sort of hoping to make it part of [livejournal.com profile] podficbigbang and it's getting a little late for that now (especially since I, um, started recording a second pfbb project this morning). It will still be something fun to look forward to even if I don't get to it this month. Thanks!

Just wanted to let you know that I've started recording this and am planning to finish it for [livejournal.com profile] podficbigbang next month, and [livejournal.com profile] yue_ix is really excited about doing the cover art. Let us know if you have any ideas for images or music to go with it. :)

This was incredibly great.

I really need more of this Arthur idea, like, RIGHT. NOW. It's so compelling and such a wonderful angle to take and what a way to keep him in character but give him a secret of his own! This fandom definitely needs more nonmagical trans things. I feel really inspired now.

Hi! I came here following the delicious scent of gang-sex (now that the knights are finally here to stay in S4, hopefully there'll be more of those in the fandom..please, please) and I ended up crying over this fic after plundering your whole archive. It's lovely and all kinds of warm things and I totally didn't see that coming and was literally screaming my house down, and laughing not because it's funny but just coz I was so overwhelmed by the revelation and then I was weeping. And it made me think of all sorts of things about life and how so many things are beyond the realm of my understanding, and that just because I can't understand them doesn't mean they'll go away and I keep thinking about the people who have to deal with them and how courageous they are... and you know, so many stuff whirling in my head on my drive to work (yes, I read it in the morning before going to work coz I'm that kind of a nut). In short, this story changed my life. Or it should, if I'm not a lazy bum who can't be bothered to change her ways.

I'm bracing myself to read the Merlin/Uther right now, but since I love all your stories, I think I'll end up liking that one too.

I just have one complaint, and that is... I want MOAR FIC. I'm bookmarking your fanfic tag in the hope of finding more shining gems (I love shiny stuff) in the future. Keep on writing~~

Haha the scent of gang-sex, it smells like... um, yes :) Thank you so much for amazing feedback, it made me flail like a crazy thing. I'm so, so happy you liked this story. It was a scary and fascinating thing to write, and, yeah, I'm so glad it worked and says what I wanted it to say, ah, seriously, I'm at a loss for words, thank youuuu.<3 <3 <3

Wah, RL is eating me now, I'm commuting 4 hours a day, so I can't promise any more fic soon, much as I love to play with these boys. But this fandom is just full of awesome stuff to roll in, so much goodness is coming out right now, and of course there's just few short months till the Big Bang stories will start pouring in. Mmmm, Big Bang, this year is going to be so gooood.

It was a scary, scary thing to talk about and you are a very, very brave person to write it and so excellently that I didn't feel manipulated or being worked on even once. The way you present it is so honest and.. I dunno... there. You didn't ask us to choose sides and you didn't force us to judge. And despite my misgivings about Arthur's decisions, I can clearly see that she/he really couldn't have done it any differently. I zonked out thinking about it all the way to work, so it was good that the traffic was okay that day coz I was on autopilot.

Ish very good. I can gush about it more but you'll probably bonk me with a virtual hammer.. LOL

I'm very new to the Merlin fandom... usually I lurk in the jrocker/jpop ones, so I'm still learning about Big Bang (first time I read it, I thought it was a fandom crossover of Merlin and that Korean boy group ^^;;), meme (I still dunno how kinkme_meme is supposed to work)... and other shtuff. There're so many excellent fic to be found in this fandom, it's like opening a present every time I found a rec post. Lovely.

I'm a million years late to the party and still only partway through S1, but~

But I have to say, this fic. Damn, woman. Simultaneously turned on and tearing up a little now. :shakes fist: How do you always do this to me?

PS: I blame you for the fact that I'm even watching Merlin now. It was worth it for this fic.

Just saying... I've already read this fic several times and recced it on my LJ a while ago but... I'm re-reading it right now and I can't tell you how much I love it.

Thank you again!

Most overdue comment in the world - I listened to sophinisba's reading of this months ago while travelling and was just. Kind of weak with how much I loved it. I've reread it since then and linked a couple of non-fandom friends to it, and they loved it, too. We chatted about it and I was like, shit, I need to stop trying to think of something coherent to say and just go tell new_kate how fucking beautiful this fic is. Your name in my inbox this morning reminded me that I'm a big jerk who still hadn't. I still have nothing coherent to say, but dude. THIS FIC IS REALLY FUCKING BEAUTIFUL. It seriously haunts me a little. ♥♥♥

This is the first I've read a ftm/mtf fic and it was beautiful, absolutely beautiful. Good job!
