  1. This is shuch a lovely story, its a real shame that it’s abandoned. You really are an excellent writer. Thank you for sharing your work ^-^

    • The first book is complete. The series is not “abandoned”. If it were never going to be more of it– I would say so. Oddly enough, it’s fairly difficult to pull a complete novel out of my ass.

      • Oh, I apologize then. I saw the date of the last updated and I just assumed. I understand your predicament, god know how many months it took me to write a complete story that ended up with less than 4,000 words. Pathetic really. I won’t ask or demand an approximate on updates, its awful when you write something for fun and have people transform it into something that seems more of a chore than a form of entertainment. I just wanted to leave a little comment to show that I appreciate your work =) Good luck honey, you probably won’t need it but the sentiment is stll the same.

  2. Rough week at work, spending the weekend overdosing on Keira fic. Ahhh, that will make everything better. 😀

  3. This story is great. I have been making my way through your stories since I found my way to your site, and I am continually impressed with the quarry of your writing. I like how you will keep elements of your fic world consistent and change others–it stays fresh and new with each different approach. I also appreciate the way your stories tackle human sexuality in so many varied ways. Thank you for sharing your stories.

    Just read through this story today. No, I definitely did not look at all during work hours, I don’t know what you’re talking about (innocent face).

    Seriously, I really loved this story. I started reading one of your other stories (HP & the Soulmate Bond) but wanted a story of a different type as my mood changed (it happens). Really liking that story, and I love this one!

    I’m a Harmony and a Drarry fan, so your tastes definitely match mine. 🙂

    I totally understand the muse leaving and losing inspiration, but I do hope you return to this trilogy at some point. It has so much potential, and it’s a great story so far.


  5. I’ve just read the ebook (thanks for formatting that, it makes reading long fic so much easier) and really enjoyed. I usually dislike time travel as a trope, but I really enjoyed how it fixed the things that I didn’t enjoy in the books. 🙂

  6. I think I just completed my…fourth(maybe third?) reread of this fic! Every time is such a treat because I notice and appreciate new things. Just wanted to drop a line and say thank you for this wonderful ‘verse. <3
