A very beautiful work.
I want to stop there, but I guess I should say a bit more eh? Hahaha.
Guess I enjoyed this even more because I can relate to some of the things which happened here to both of them... And to have it all so very clearly written down...
Playing those musical instruments myself, I understand the dedication and effort one has to put in to master a piece, and be able to clearly convey the emotions behind it. Although I don't lose myself in that art, there have been times when I almost let go of my identity in an attempt to please and be able to connect deeper to someone important to me... As such, in trying to mould myself to their ideals, it is also inevitable that after parting with that person, whatever the reason may be, I would feel temporarily at a loss. I do love how you phrased the part of "getting myself back" and “bit by bit”. Such a concept is new for me, although I believe that despite getting yourself back, there will always be a part of you which can never be returned, and there is also something new which you will gain… I do like that idea still.
Being an only child, there have been times when I had to purposely distance myself from others because of the strong desire to monopolize them, and maybe in doing so, achieve a greater sense of belonging. I have always been a silent observer, preferring to give a gift to show that I like the person, or write and sometimes even draw what I felt, rather than saying it out, for fear that I might not be able to express it clearly. I envied those who were more vocal and out-going, because they seemed to know just what to say for whatever situation which arose, and everyone just seemed to automatically flock to them, and well, they seemed to have everything, and were a part of something... But I guess over time, one would outgrow such a phase, and start to feel more open and comfortable and secured in himself/herself… There are still times when I'm still plagued by such insecurity... It's nothing a piece of chocolate can't fix though. ;D
(okay, now I’m feeling embarrassed after saying all those things… I’m sorry if I made anything sound redundant… Mah, what a roundabout way of saying 'I can relate'... *blush*)
It was delightful to read the myriad of emotions portrayed, as well as the realizations by both Leander and Damon, and the descriptive words used for each mood and situation just further amplified what is being felt in that particular scene, as well as the innate character of each person, even the little changes taking place in each individual's character.
At first, I had been confused by the opening paragraphs in italics, but as the story progressed, it allowed me to view Damon’s side of the story, and be able to understand more of his character, of how he was unable to express his true feelings in words, and the results of such action, as well as his fears and uncertainties, his vulnerabilities, of how human he is. Must be because of his name and how Leander describes him, but he sure does sound like a supernatural being. ;P
I had been of the impression that Leander was not really so strong-willed? because of how easily he gave in to Damon, but reading back again from the start, how he had acted when he and Damon just got to know each other and in the initial photo-taking sessions, with Damon’s(or the 3rd person’s?) POV, and his actions in the latter chapters, I was gladly proven wrong.
Oh, also, I shouldn’t forget about Alex yeah? I love this guy! He’s like, the ideal best friend type, being so understanding and supportive of Leander, not hesitating to scold him and such, and remaining there despite Leander's vanishing phase… and how he encouraged Leander to go after and get back Damon… Well, that made me like him even more!
Such a bittersweet, heart-wrenching story… Thank you for giving them a happy ending, as well as not leaving any strings untied. Reading the happy ending like that, plus the epilogue, I can’t help but feel all fuzzy and hug my pillows so tight in glee. Hahaha!
I enjoyed reading this masterpiece of yours, and I’m definitely looking forward to read your other works. ;3

I started reading this story perhaps an hour ago, and was completely mesmerized until just minutes ago when I reached the end. It was really beautiful and well written, and also the characters felt so real. Amazing work :)

Yeah! They got back together without too much melodrama and angst. I love how you balance such pure and strong emotions without laying down the cheese. Hopefully, when you finish this wonderful child we will see an offspring or a sequel. heheheh

As usual, stunning. Breath-taking. I can never get over your elegant use of language.
One of my favorite lines this time around:
"but every artist has something unique to his talent, something that’s simply his. Because, even if we want it or not, the art lives and breathes through us, feeds from us."
