So, so far I have to say, your story is great. I've never read Femslash and have always been somewhat ambivalent to the idea, but you know, despite the fact that i was a bit wary going into this story, i'm so happy I did! You're writing style is great, it's concise and clear and you have a great sense of fluidity in your writing. Im loving the interaction between your characters and the neat details you give them, and also some of the open ended details that add a sense of mystery that keeps the reader going.
Keep up the writing, I'm very interested to see where you're going to take this. :-)

FINALLY! Someone actually updated D: lol. If it makes you feel better I doubt anyone who has seriously researched the bible would be reading this(I could be wrong of course). Really love the character dynamic, and as always I'm interested in seeing where you're going with everyone. Look forward to your next update whenever that may be!

Wow! Very profound chapter. I think I'm where Annie's at vis-a-vis God. He's not who I thought he was but I can't disbelieve.
Annie's letter about Pygmalion and the statue was pretty deep. It's the historic record of men condensed to a paragraph. The attitude is nearly universal among the male writers of history: Her name doesn't matter. She is a baby-maker and pleasure-giver, which in context of the TOTALITY of her is beautiful. But to reduce her to ONLY those functions should be blasphemy.

Nice Chapter. I was intrigued by Connie. It will be fun to find out her story. I also laughed that you had to apologize about bringing Christianity into the mix. I think there should be more stories written like this. The media portrayal of Christians and the reality are galaxies apart. I can tell you've been in that community by what Connie does in Church. Looking forward to more. Thanks for writing this.

I absolutely adored this chapter. Annie is hilarious. She had some great lines. She is just too cute for words. Her little chorus of Horny, Smelly and Tulip are funny, too. (Although it brings back horrible memories when I lived in Odessa, Texas. Yikes!) Connie is intriguing. I am really looking forward to the next chapters. Thanks for writing this and, on a personal note, I think it is so cool you are a Latin minor. I've thought about learning it, but I'm too lazy so I bought "Latin for Every Occasion."

I like this story. The main character is quirky cute with a good sense of humor. I'm intrigued about where it is all going. It's a very original idea so far. I will definitely hang around for more. Great job and, just to be constructive, there are a few grammar issues in your story.

Another update! Always good to see, and we finally get some back story on Connie. I continue to love the letters to Ovid, and the laid back feeling this story continues to give. Look forward to more as always.

I'm starting to think Ovid is Connie.
Awesome job, btw!

I had a ton of fun reading this chapter while betaing it. (:
It gives a lot of insight into Connie's...behavior and I nearly missed a number of mistakes due to my being captivated. I also love how Annie's letters to Ovid usually relate to how she's truly feeling about her relationship with Connie/life in general. I'm tempted to start writing a journal/letters m'self now.
Cheers! I await your next email happily.

Interesting chapter, and the letter to Ovid again steals the show at the very end. Really though what I think I like most about this story is you really can't tell where its going. Glad to see this updated and look forward to see what happens next

I usually don't read femmslash but this one caught my eye, so I thought what the hey. I ended up almost dying of the giggles at the end of the chapter, Annie's apology letter to Ovid was amazing.

This is a clever, well-written story. Keep it up. c:

I really like this.
I think it's very promising, and already delivering nicely, if you will.
The statue/Ovid motif is interesting, lending verisimilitude to Annie's character, and enhancing the feel of the story as a whole.
... If I'm not careful, I'm going to go all English-class on this. Sorry. It's a mode.
Anyway, it's just terribly refreshing to find a well-written, well-paced romance on this site. Especially in the femslash category.
So, kudos to you.

I really do enjoy the letters to Ovid. Very interesting stuff. As to the actual story, its slowly chugging along, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Fairly interesting story so far, definitely interested in seeing where you're going with it.
