One of the things I enjoy most about this story is the fact that in our world, so many folks will still make your life a living hell for doing something that scares them... like being in love with a man. It's a really nice read, especially the h/c aspects and the incredible solidarity between not only Chris and Buck, but between them and the team. And the fact that they had their "motto" was really cool. I'd have wished for no public kiss thing, because for me personally that can be a little hokey or, well, just not what men do when they're trying to prove they're like everyone else around them, but it was for me the beauty mark in an otherwise intense and appealing story.

I'm right here with Ellie; this is just a delightful tale (both Reflections Of... and The Way Life Used to Be) and I have loved it (them) since the very first reading. I have defined this as "my first C/B story" I ever found, because it wasn't in reaction to other pairings; it was just Chris, and Buck, and an event, and crap going down, and them being themselves, and struggles, and intimacy. Then more intimacy. Then the new balance after said intimacy. ::happy sigh:: I hope you know what an "oasis in the desert" your story was for me! And you know, even surrounded by many other C/B stories today, yours is still a lovely oasis. So thank you for writing it--especially since it's not your main pairing or anything! Charlotte

The holiday season compels me to revisit strong writers whose work I love, and particular stories that struck me with their emotion, or their humor, or their intensity... this one struck me with its sheer graphic, masculine horniness. The set-up is funny, the characterizations are always accurate and sometimes silly, and Vin cracked me up. Calla is one of those writers who can do intensely graphic sex that rarely tips into the "pornographic" -- yes, I think there's a difference. This one skates the edge of that, but only because she wanted porno here, and got it, in all its goofy, sexy, kinky glory. A great read!

This is one of those storiees that I thought, when I first understood the premise, would *never* work. And boy, was I proved wrong! I loved the pastiche, the combining of the Holmes universe with the characters I recognize and love from M7. I think Sammy Girl did a great job with this, and while its style and structure is a little different compared to traditional narrative, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I enjoyed the twists of this story; it really set certain "accepted facts" on their end, and I always like that. I wish it had been longer.

I really enjoyed this story; it carried with it certain "heroic" elements that I realized I don't often see, like a sense of patriotism, and the (very real) sense of family and community a person can get from life in the military. The love between them was so fresh and clear, I really enjoyed that! And the opening was sexy and sweet.

This is just a darned good read. I always appreciate deft handling of words and the telling of a good adventure tale and this does both. The descriptions, the way the friends came together (and continue to do so in this story) really worked for me; Chris and Buck's friendship is solid and reliable, while Vin is in no way slighted. Ezra shines, as does Josiah. And JD's particular job--cute as a button, for this AU.

You know, there should be more stories like this. As much fun as dangly bits and sex are, humor is just precious. I particularly liked the nice use of characterization, the often-snappy dialogue, and the tales of the quest through the city of New York... well, woefully, painfully realistic. And a great tag line.

and yet, it's a gripping little sex fic that is erotic and fun and captures many elements of the characters throughout the smut experience. I thought Vin was authentically characterized, given the circumstances, and the sex was, well... hot.

Yes! It's so great to see this story here, as it's without a doubt one of my favorite gen stories out there. Lots of great h/c, wonderful characterization of all the guys, and a valid reason for them to have gotten into all this mess. I loved the depth of Chris and Buck's friendship, overlaid as it was with all their history; Chris and Vin's friendship, and their amusement at the end for... well, let's not give the story away... and Ezra's frustrated position within the story. It's very worth the read, and several re-reads.
