Delicious! You have the voices and characters down so well here. The mix of funny and steamy is just right, too. All in all, this is positively delightful!

Aww, thank you, m'dear! I'm so glad you enjoyed. Funny + hot is absolutely my favorite combo, so if I achieved that, then I'm extra-thrilled! :D

Yay for squee! *is proud* Thank you so much, m'dear! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed it. I hope you have a fabulous time exploring the fandom - there is much to enjoy! We're a small fandom, but an active, friendly, supportive one. :D

Heee, you're very welcome for the hot smut. It gets even steamier in the sequels... *g*

I realized after reading "Christmas Cottage" that I'd been reading your series out of order, having missed the early ones, so I've come back here.

This is so wonderful, and I don't really think I can add anything that anyone else hasn't said, but really- I loved this sooo much. It's so very sweet, and in character, and if it were printed out I'd even call it a page-turner! BravoX100!! :D

*tosses flowers at you*

Hee hee. I notice some people read them out of order and I always sort of wonder how it affects the reading experience. Hope it doesn't ruin your enjoyment too much! :)

Thank you so much for your very kind words - they are very much appreciated. I'm delighted that you liked it so much! Yay for page turning! ("mouse scrolling"? *g*)

Oooh, flowers! *catches* Thank you, darling! :D

*breaths heavily* That was wonderful. And very hot. I especially liked the dialog, I thought it was pithy, entertaining, and entirely in character.

Oh, thanks so much, old bean! I'm so thrilled you enjoyed it, especially the dialog. The voices of these two are so fun to write. Er, and the smut. That's fun too. :D

My only confusion is to how your 'first fanfic ever' can be so sublimely steamy and fulfilling and heartstring-plucking. I enjoy this fic every time I read it, and I may have already posted a comment on it, but who cares. La.
Sky: [j&w] morning loveskyblue_reverie on March 30th, 2007 05:35 am (UTC)
Aww, thanks so much. *blush* You're very sweet, m'dear. I'm so glad you've enjoyed it, apparently through multiple re-reads! That makes me very happy indeed. And I will certainly never mind comments, even if you have already commented. :D

Thanks much!

Looks good! Very useful, good stuff. Good resources here. Thanks much!

Re: Thanks much!
Ummm... thanks, I guess? Did you comment on the right post? Not so sure about useful, or good resources, but glad you enjoyed...?

Ok, so I've read this about four hundred times, and I figured I'd comment. This is amazing. As are all of your Jeeves fics. I loves them.

But I have never been one to hesitate when I could cause things to fall out in a way that was beneficial to myself or to Mr Wooster – and when one action could benefit both of us, I saw no reason to refrain.

I think this characterizes (or characterises, I suppose) Jeeves perfectly. It really sums up Jeeves' motives for everything, especially considering that you added the "to myself or to Mr. Wooster" bit. It's true that some of the things Jeeves does aren't always beneficial to Bertie, but those things are beneficial to Jeeves.

Anyway, this story is love.

Awww, thank you so much! :D It totally thrills me to know you've enjoyed my fics.

Heh, you're so right about Jeeves - he's always looking out for Bertie, but if that conflicts with his own goals, well, sorry, Bertie! :)

Thank you for taking the time to read (repeatedly!) and comment. ♥
John: Gay Whispers SF/HLjouse on March 14th, 2008 12:00 pm (UTC)
Oh, the bliss. This is the sort of fics I live for. Wonderful (:

Yayyy, I'm so glad you liked it! Thanks so much for reading & commenting. Love your icon, btw. :)

I can't remember how I got here (as I've never seen Jeeves and Wooster) but this was fabulous. Jeeves just manipulates it all and Bertie is so clueless. And now I have a new fandom (just what I needed). You don't mind that I blame you?
Sky: [j&w] may I take care of that sirskyblue_reverie on June 13th, 2008 05:21 am (UTC)
Welcome to the fandom, m'dear! I am happy to take the blame for introducing a new person to the utter love that is Jeeves & Wooster. Sorry if it gobbles up precious free time - I know how that can be! :D

Thanks so much for the comment. Yup, at the heart of the dynamic is Bertie's adorable cluelessness and Jeeves's somewhat Machiavellian maneuvering (but he does it all for love of Bertie, really). I hope you get a chance to read the books and/or see the Fry & Laurie show. The show, especially, is so slashy.

Hope to see you around the fandom! :)

Eek... Oh My God... brain melted.

*reforms from puddle on the floor*
This is one of the best J&W fics I have ever read! Seriously the boys are in character the language is spot on and the story *squee*!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ummm.... yeah, I really like your fic!
Sky: [j&w] first tasteskyblue_reverie on June 21st, 2008 02:28 am (UTC)
Whew, that's some icon you've got there! *fans self*

Aww, thank you so much for the comment, hon. I'm so glad you enjoyed! :D
Empress: Erin_icons' theempress14 on June 25th, 2008 11:54 pm (UTC)

Love! Love love love love love! I truly adore this fic and immediately after finishing it, I went onto the all night task of reading your other J & W fics. Props all around! Best fiction in this fandom, hands down!

This fic is God's Daisy chain! *brick'd!* XDD

Also, you'll be happy to know I'm printing this baby out and it's going in my special Smut box for later...perusal.
Sky: [j&w] may I take care of that sirskyblue_reverie on June 27th, 2008 01:12 pm (UTC)
Hahahahaha! I love your painfully late powers. :D Hey, seriously, I'm always thrilled to get a comment, no matter when.

I'm so glad you enjoyed, and I'm totally flattered that my fics led to an all-night reading binge (I've been there myself many a time - um, not reading my own fics all night, obviously). Eeee, wow, best fic in the fandom - high praise indeed! Thank you so much!

Oooooh, smut box! I am honored to have my story added to the smut box. :p

"I mean to say, I was hoping you could show me this consummation whatsit that you had in mind," he said, his eyes glimmering with interest.
*also glimmers with interest*
What a lovely story! I found this through the great podfic by theempress14.
Sky: [j&w] morning loveskyblue_reverie on August 3rd, 2008 03:42 pm (UTC)
Aww, thank you so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed. I've dl'd the podfic but haven't had a chance to listen to it yet - must do that soonest!

Thanks for your comment, m'dear.
dodificus: eat medodificus on August 14th, 2008 01:57 am (UTC)
I've just finished listening to the podfic of this and I thought I'd let you know how much I enjoyed your story. It was kind of unsettling seeing first hand how much of a schemer Jeeves is but he has Bertie's best interests at heart so I guess I'll forgive him:)

And it was so sweet when Bertie tried to fake his way into another back rub...awww:)
Sky: [j&w] first tasteskyblue_reverie on August 14th, 2008 02:01 pm (UTC)
Aww, thanks so much for the lovely comment! Yeah, Jeeves is definitely a schemer, but as you say, it's always on Bertie's behalf (well, and his own, of course). Bertie's not even in the same league, but he tries, darling that he is. ;)
cybelcybel on September 29th, 2008 10:39 pm (UTC)
Just a note to let you know that theempress14 was kind enough to let me compile her 4 podfics of your stories into podbook format. This just adds a cover, makes it automatically bookmarkable, and, for those with iTunes, moves it out of the Music folder and into a separate Audiobooks folder where it won't be seen or heard when browsing or listening to songs. It also then automatically shows up in an Audiobooks playlist on an iPod.

I posted the 'book to indeedsir and podslash, and the cover is here if you'd like to see it.

Ooooh, awesome! Thanks both for doing this and for letting me know. I'm so incredibly honored to have been podficed, and now compiled! :D The cover is gorgeous - love the artwork. Thanks again!!

Some of Jeeves's plans make me let out a few evil giggles lol Slowly trying to evoke Bertie to realize his feeling.. I must say Jeeves is very patient with it lol Well, Bertie's worth it!

I -adore- the part that Bertie confesses his love XD So cute! Start with getting Jeeves to give him some back rubs. Is it Bertie way to ensure himself that he loves Jeeves in that way?

Sex scene are purely hot *_* You make me envy Jeeves slightly lol

"Well, then. I, Bertram Wilberforce Wooster, hereby vow that I take you, Jeeves, to be my lifelong… wedded… thingummy…" he faltered, but quickly picked up speed again. "In sickness and health, for richer or poorer, etc., etc., and forsaking all others, for as long as we both shall live." << Makes me lol with love for both of them <3333 It's Bertie playing the husband part! XD

And the end is great! I'm gonna go and read the sequel when I could :D
Sky: [j&w] bertie smile animatedskyblue_reverie on January 21st, 2010 03:36 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for the lovely comment!

Yes, Jeeves is very patient with Bertie. I don't think I could be that patient, but then, I'm not as awesome as Jeeves is. :D

Hehe, I'm glad you enjoyed the backrubs, the sex, and the little impromptu marriage declaration. :DDD This fic was really fun to write.

Hope you like the sequels whenever you get to them. :)
