    Bookmarker's Notes

    This was good. Achingly bittersweet but also lovely. Basically deals with Lio who still has moments where his trauma affects him and the tears just won't stop, and how Galo is helpless and unsure on how to help but tries his best anyway.

    Summary

    The Burnish have few leaders, and so many duties fall to the leader of Mad Burnish simply because there's no one else to do them. Lio takes them seriously, each and every one, and so the Burnish continue to come to him even after the world changes again.

    One of those duties is to perform weddings.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    FAV FAV FAV!

    -Heart-wrenchingly sweet in such subtle yet piercing ways.
    -Love the author's voice?? (and I do feel that it's essentially THEIR voice that they've lent these characters; that shaped these gestures and words.) Like, the opening scene where we're seeing through Galo's observation @ Lio having this particular tick when he's about to ask a question - I really liked how that all played out. The list of questions he's asked. Something small like that... yet I felt like I've gone through 5k of backstory just from the lines in that scene alone. It was so good! And that was the least of it because this entire story has so many of those tiny yet resonating moments. SO MANY.

    -Lio's speech!!!!!! Ahhhhh!!! Blew me away.

    -The way this author writes Galo.... has to be among my favourite takes. They're so good at conveying his kindness/thoughtfulness in deceptively simple, throwaway sentences that somehow manages to paint more story than a whole paragraph. Example of a great line:
    (He thinks more than he'd like about the cave, and Lio saying that the Burnish need to eat as much as any human. He wishes he hadn't said that; he doesn't want to rush into saying something like that again. He'll rush in better directions.)

     

    -Devastatingly lovely. I would go over every other line several times, over and over, because of how GOOD I thought they were.

    -There's a sense of stability and ease with how GaloLio was written here. I loved that.

    EDIT: Author has this particular way of writing Galo that's incredibly distinct (I've not seen this in anyone else's) and theirs is currently one of my fav Galos that I've come across in fics so far. I love how casually, thoughtlessly kind he is. Like, in an intrinsic way? (Which is very HIM.) And there's just this underlying tone of gentleness surrounding him, always. So good.

    WIP. BEST, MOST FUN time-traveling AU ever. The one with younger!Yuuri trying to pursue 27-year-old Victor. Very charming.
