As someone who really had accepted chapter 12 as the ending of this gorgeous story, chapter 13 was a fantastic surprise. It is a great chapter, blending in perfectly with all the great memories from the previous ones. I loved it. Thank you for writing it.

It was fun, but there wasn't a single instance of intimacy (relational, not sexual) between Marek and Jackson. I missed that a lot, since that's what makes the actual story so interesting and fun and exciting. These two characters are always concentrating on each other. This was just a 'meet the parents' situation, and to be honest, Jackson's parents and grandmother are out of their mind. Cantonese and family-oriented or not, I would NOT be happy if someone thought my life was to be tampered with at their convenience. That said, I was very happy to be able to read more, so thank you.

Haha I love how Jackson's family has everything planned out for him and Marek and there's no objections (or few objections) from Jackson. The way Marek charms Jacokson's grandmother just by being humself... Jackson's parents are just gret too. Haha 3

I love your writing style and how you intertwine food into the plot of the story. The characters are interesting. I'm really enjoying the story.

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 chapter 2 . 12/25/2011
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. :-)
