    Simply divine. Read it for Honoria, and her fabulous idiosyncratic voice - read it for Sylvia, a luminous and charming OFC - read it for the love letter to period music that's folded seamlessly into its plot. Fantastically done, and a joy to read.

    This is awesome. Except that overused word can’t begin to describe how wholly wonderful this is. It is tremendous. It is remarkable. It is grand. It is splendid.

    Sam is just perfect. Oh, Sam. I love her quiet strength in this, and how much more competent she is than anyone around her. And Emma has such a larger-than-life presence - I love the way she's seized control and runs everything. This is a very special fic. <3

    Summary

    I don’t know if you have ever had your torso scraped with a butter knife by your valet. There is not much in the experience to recommend it. Particularly when you suspect said valet is not entirely happy with you, and so wields the implement with more vim than strictly necessarily.

    Or, the tale of how Bertie and Jeeves finally Confessed All to each other, despite – or, possibly, because of – the passion-dampening affects of Giant Squirts, thwarted wrestling, unhappy boating, rabbits (both of the Luminous and Dream varieties), an aunt who breakfasts on the ground bones of nephews who displease her, and a pair of very natty yellow socks.

    Yes, so this is the one where Bertie's clueless and Jeeves is secretly pining, and Bertie tries to come up with a Plan to address Jeeves being off his feed, and this works about as well as you would expect. It's awesome. Read it.

    One of my gift fics for 2012! This is an amazing and lovely fic with parallel storylines in which Lila shows her new sister-in-law Ella that living in castles doesn't always have to be boring, and Gustav and Frederic fall in love and contemplate a future together (with many hilarious Gustavian insults and impeccable Frederician outfits along the way). <333333

    It’s like a broken clock she cannot set aright, somehow both too fast and too slow; or the draft from a carelessly opened door that she cannot place, sighing its sobering chill into even the gayest of parlours. And it is at its strongest, perhaps, whenever she chances to hear Miss Fairfax play.

    This fic is beautiful, and funny, and deep, and I've read it three times already and loved it more each time, even though I wasn't sure that'd be possible. This is my head-canon now, in an immediate and unshakeable way. Do read this. You won't regret it, I swear.
