Aww! Thank you! I'm glad it worked for you!

What a perfect perfect story!

I am awed at how skillfully you wove the email into the narrative and Clark's thought processes, and brought he and Lex together at the end.

Oh, hon! *snugs you* Thank you so much! I'm so happy you enjoyed this! Squee!

Wow. Got here via a pimp from hackthis and couldn't be happier about it. Great story with amazing Clark & Lex voices. And a potentially happy ending, which always makes me squeee!

*grins* I like to call this ending -- happy for now. But I'm glad you enjoyed it! Yay! Thank you!

*hugs* This was amazing, hon. It just...it hurt so good. *grins* Which is an odd phrase, I know, but I adore fic that makes me hurt and cry. Even if it *doesn't* have a happy ending, though I'm glad yours does and I hope they are able to stay together.

But really, I'm so happy you enjoyed this! *snugs*

I was sent here by obsidian_rai (*mental note: hug her for this*) and I had to read it twice. The voices are amazing, the context is beautiful and the ending made me all teary eyed.

It's great. *wipes eyes*

So lovely. Both your Lex and Clark are achingly believable. The e-mail is so perfect, I can hear it in my head along with Clark. And you just capture all their issues, faults and beauty in one gorgeous package. You make me believe in life after The Rift. *sniff* I may worship you forever. ;)
pure FORESHADOWING: Chloe!nifra_idril on September 28th, 2004 03:40 pm (UTC)
Dude, worship *rocks*. *grins*

I'm so happy you enjoyed this! Thank you! And your icon? Hysterical!

*sighs happily* I love that. It's so--*them*. And so very Clark.

*happy place*
pure FORESHADOWING: fabio!clarknifra_idril on September 28th, 2004 03:40 pm (UTC)
*snugs and pets you* Aww, thank you babe. I love me some Clark. *pets him also* I'm glad you liked it!

This works so beautifully. Thank you for writing it. Thank you for sharing it.

Aww, thank you for the lovely feedback! I'm so happy you enjoyed it!

“What, precisely, did you wait for?” Lex asks after a minute.

Clark knows the answer to that one. He knows it stone cold, and he looks Lex straight in the eye, says, “I waited for you.”

Lex’s eyes widen, and his mouth falls open. “Oh,” he says, and he sounds breathless, and Clark steps closer, close enough that he can smell Lex’s aftershave and see some of the prints Lex has in his foyer.


*squees loudly*

Right there was where you broke me. It's wonderful. An absolutely delightful fic. I loved the characterisation, and the email, and... the entire thing seemed so very Lexian, so very Clarkish. I loved it.

Aww! *bounces* Yay! Thank you so much! I'm so happy you liked it! *snugs*

Yay drunk Lex! Yay crappy communal bathrooms.
Oh god. I've been out of college dorms for two years and I'm already feeling nosalgic for the sound of someone retching while I shower.

Great story! I love stories where one party broods over a message the other one sent for awhile. It creates this wonderful suspense.

*laughs* You know, I don't think I'll ever be nostalgic for retching, but I"m glad you liked it. *grins* I'm actually just glad you liked the whole thing. Thanks!

Oh. Oh, this is lovely. The way they *talk*. To each other even when they're alone; they're *haunting* each other! Squee!! They both felt utterly *real* to me. SqueeMark2!! ^_^ Thank you so much for writing this.
pure FORESHADOWING: giles mack daddynifra_idril on September 28th, 2004 03:57 pm (UTC)
I think the thing about Clark and Lex is that they're just always going to be haunting each other -- and that's a good thing and a bad thing, but I will tell you this: it's a fun thing to write. *grins hugely* I'm so happy you enjoyed this! *snugs*

Ummmm.
WOW.

I can't think of a thing that really stands out, because it's ALL good.

And yeah. HOT.

pure FORESHADOWING: Deathnifra_idril on September 28th, 2004 04:09 pm (UTC)
Heh -- I think Lex is sort of in a class all his own for drunk-eloquence. But thank you! I'm so happy you enjoyed it!
Edmund Crankypants: Freddie Smokesanitac588 on September 15th, 2004 05:38 am (UTC)
This is the story I hoped for the whole summer it'll be written!!!!!!!!

Thank you for writing it.
*bows*

PS My, Lex is quite composed when drunk, I'll give him that.
pure FORESHADOWING: Chloe!nifra_idril on September 28th, 2004 04:10 pm (UTC)
Aww! *snugs* Thank you so much! I'm so happy you enjoyed it -- even prognosticated it *grins!
