| Vera Dicere chapter 2 . 8/25/2009
o, i really, really like this. just..the interactions are so wonderful and hesitant and utterly perfect. it makes me such a jumble of emotions- hopeful that something good will come of it, apprehensive that something unfortunate will happen, sympathetic and empathetic both. mostly, it just gives me warm fuzzies and i love it. definitely looking forward to more. :)

The born-vampire thing is definitely my favourite between bitten/strange rituals etc.
THIS IS REALLY GOOD.

I was craving a good gay vampire story even if it did take me a while to find it! XD Excellent characterization too. Darryl is such a softie. It's quite adorable. _ Update soon please!

My heart aches for these two, for Darryl's impossible self-denial (not of blood but of human affection), for Simon's self-inflicted social restrictions, for their stumbling attempts to find a balance. Through them, you do cut through to the heart and expose the truth of humanity; you pen the great novel Simon wanted to.
There is too much to this story to extol, too much to luxuriate in. I simply have no words. Just, thank you for sharing such an incredible story.

I haven't been able to spend more than a half hour on FP for a long time; when life's busy, one must learn to pick and choose what she reads. But there's no picking and choosing when it comes to YOU, I've discovered. Your writing has its personal altar in my soul. :P
I love the intro to their characters, the contrast between their personalities, the little misunderstandings that leap with humor. I love Simon's whimsical diatribe on the impossibility of originality and his final assertion that the binary options of reality still matter, the Uni kid through and through. I love Darryl's outward stoicism and inner monologue of fears and insecurities, living with an isolation not wholly attributable to his belonging to a different "species." There is so much in this first chapter that startles, compels, and charms me; I've never read anything quite like this, daring yet subtle, quiescent but flavored, and it's addictive.

This is a slow moving story, but it fits. I like the drowsy, calm feeling.

| mintyfish chapter 2 . 8/24/2009
I...just got the pun in the title. :) This is really beautiful; it's understated but you still convey the characters and setting perfectly. I'm looking forward to more!
| Lana chapter 1 . 8/20/2009
Great story! I especially liked the line “Are you kidding? Vampires are only in trash novels."...As your writing a vampire story ;) Keep up the good work, I hope you write more for this story.
| zoule chapter 1 . 8/9/2009
I really love this unique take on vampirism! I hope you continue this story.
| Aime Atem chapter 1 . 8/9/2009
Absolutely fabulous! Vampire romance will, sadly, always be extremely overdone. Yours, however, is one of the few that are worth reading. And that, my dear, is why I cannot wait for more.
