Comment on Life is the flower of which love is the honey

  1. EEEeeeeeee. I have no idea what I did to deserve this, but thank you sooooooo much for taking my prompt and running with it. This is so awesome, I have no words for how amazing it is.

    I love the worldbuilding you put into this. It's exactly what I hoped for, and the concepts of shield mates and the implications of a canine splice's commander are fascinating. I really, really love the social norms you imagined for this ridiculous, glittery space canon, and I am so damn happy that I got to read this. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This was beautiful.

    I love that Kiza is part of this story, and that Caine asked her for advice. I adore her, and the fact that both she and Jupiter like to hang out in the Botanical Gardens was beautiful, because those are my favorite places to be, and you had no way of knowing that, but just reading it made me happy. ;)

    Past Stinger/Caine! ♥ ♥ ♥ I am so here for this, and I love how restless Stinger feels, now that he knows Jupiter, but that he's unsure of his place in all this. The three of them dragging Jupiter to McDonalds was hilarious, and that she refused to go the second time even more so. Hehe.

    And oh gosh, Caine!!! Poor guy, buying her presents because he knows she's upset, but doesn't think he can ask why. And Stinger reassuring him! ♥ ♥ ♥ My heart. ♥ ♥ ♥ I really love what you did with their relationship, how Stinger and Kiza try to help him make sense of why Jupiter is withdrawn, and eventually Stinger just decides to lay it all out in front of Jupiter, because she obviously doesn't know what's going on.

    And her immediate reaction is to let Caine snuggle against her stomach!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ So good, it made me feel all warm and fuzzy. I am so glad that she accepted Caine and Stinger's relationship and even invited Stinger to stay in the end. I love the three of them together. They have such a fascinating dynamic, and you wrote them beautifully.

    I will treasure this. Thank you so much for adding layers and depth to this gorgeous, over-the-top universe. Reading this just made my day. ♥ ♥ ♥

      First, thank you for commenting quickly. It's so nerve wracking in an exchange when you don't hear from your recipient, and in really grateful for any acknowledgement.

      Second, thank you for such detailed and lovely feedback. Some of the stuff you really liked was what I was a bit nervous about, some of it was what I thought you would like from your letter (great letter, by the way! Lots of inspo without feeling like you were looking for one specific story.) It just feels good to know what worked for your and that your enjoyed it overall.

      I'm so happy you like it, I really did want you to.
