I adore this story.
Your sensory writing when describing types of food etc, and linking it to the characters is extraordinary. And Marek, gaah what a gorgeous character. I love the fact he's so sweet and yet there's a little bit of repulsion thrown in and the contrast in characters is wonderful.
Loved loved the story, I think I've read it far too many times.
The last chapter I'll admit threw me a bit, unless I'm missing something these random kids came out of nowhere, tbh it didn't feel organic with the rest of the story. However it certainly adds an interesting element to it all!
The answers probably no, but have you considered doing a series of random one-shots for this story and their lives lives moving forward? I'm pretty sure you'll have lots of interested readers.
I'll round off by saying thank you fora great little story :)

If you don't mind me asking, what do you mean by giving away a copy? I checked out the blog but there are still prices listed.

Awesome story! The culinary theme tied into the story nicely and I enjoyed it very much :-) my heart broke a little somewhere around chapter 9 or 8 when Jackson realized that Marek didn't look at him "that way" anymore... Nicely, it ended well!

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.
