A very beautiful short story. It made my heart wrench and then gently soothed it back to it's working condition, in a little over an hour. That's some good writing. Thank you for the beautiful little glimpse into Jackson and Marek's lives.

This was really sweet! I loved all the food references and how they tie in with the story, really clever :D

I wonder what made me think that I have already reviewed this story... oh well. This is my favorite. Absolutely favorite. I first read this story months ago and it was just so beautiful. I love the food. I love the science(?) that was put in. I loved the sadness, the frustrations between the characters. Everything about this story is perfect for me, although I cannot explain why. I can read this story everyday and not tire of its magic. Thank you for sharing this story.

Finally a character like Marek. Not all bishies covered with sparkles, eh?
OOoooohhh And cosmopolitan characters!
And food (porn).
Lovely, luscious sensual descriptions.
this was yummy.

I have a question...
I've been in love with this story for a very long time now, and I was wondering: where did you get all these delicious recipes? They make up over half the story and leave me mouth-watering every time I read them again. I'm curious.

This was a sweet ending. :-) Thanks for the story.

I don't like Jackson that much. I know it's him being clueless but still. Through your words I can feel Marek's loneliness. He has friends and all but he lives alone and yeah. It's like Jackson's playing with emotions until he's sure about what he feels.
| Bedlam Chaos 12/25/11 . chapter 2
Ow. Marek is such a sweetheart. I mean. Really. It's kind of heart-breaking to see how Jackson is so indifferent to him. You cannot decide who people are attracted to or even who you are yourself attracted to so I cannot hold it against Jackson but still... I hope it will be a "happy-end" kind of story because Marek exudes gentleness and candor so :-) he deserves it. :-)

This was fabulous xD

This is amazing.I have not yet to read another written work that can enfuse such details as you do.
| Abrasive 7/26/10 . chapter 12
Lovely. The imagery was vibrant and clever, the characterisation well-rounded and interesting. Occasionally you used colons when a semi-colon or even a comma would have sufficed. Aside from that, it was stunning.

I think in the last our I fell in love.
The story is wonderful and since I have to learn some botanic iT's just perfect motivation.
Somehow I'm hooked on stories with cooking themes. The manga Kinou Nani Tabeta, is written in a simmilar way like your story. I'm just talking about how you blended the recepts and cooking in the story. I liked your way more 'cause you used the recept to describe things about the story, there was a connection between the cooking and the story.
Thanks for the great story

| Antilus 12/3/09 . chapter 6
I've never been much of a reviewer, but I've read this story six or seven times at the least and thought that the eighth time around should qualify for some sort of acknowledgment.
I absolutely love this story. I love the way Marek and Jackson play of each other. I love the wonderful circle of friends they have. I love the integration of cooking and I love you. Every time I feel like I need a little something to make my day I read this and every time it does; it picks me right up and I'm so thankful you took the time to write this incredible work and share it with us and, if not, me :)
Thanks again, Antilus.

I love it :)
I really like how you added all that cooking stuff, though god knows how you knew all that stuff.
Granted, the last time I tried to cook I burned the water so...
