"Lovely" doesn't cover it, but that's the adjective that comes to the fore, for me. Thank you.

After I read this, I searched "Angus, god of dreams" and found the Wikipedia entry. I love what you've done with that story--twice. And it's gorgeously written, which is perfect for the story(ies). It's a wonderful characterization of the people we love, even though they're out of place and time. It's heartbreaking in all the right ways, and it's *glad*, even if it's not conventionally happy. My favorite line is "He had asked her out with spilled salt and a dead language." It's them, just as they should be. It's lovely.
Author's Response: Oh, your review! It made me so happy! The fact that it interested you enough to look up the legend on wikipedia is wonderful! I\'d definitely recommend you read the book by Alexander McCall Smith. It is wonderful and really inspired me with this story. I\'m very glad that you liked how I wove the stories together. I had been concerned about that. And the fact that you felt the people we love were in character means so much to me. Also, this line, \"It\'s heartbreaking in all the right ways, and it\'s *glad*, even if it\'s not conventionally happy.\" That was *exactly* what I was aiming for and so I\'m thrilled to no end that that worked for you. I\'m also completely jazzed that the spilled salt/dead language line was your favorite. It\'s a personal favorite, too. Thank you so very much for reading and leaving such a lovely review. I really appreciate it. -Muse
Oh my heart! Lovely!
Author's Response: I\'m so pleased that you liked it. Thank you! -Muse
Wow, this is just gorgeous. The two stories intertwine perfectly - I love the way that the 'real' narrative is told as a fairytale, while the AU is far more conventional. Really, really wonderful. :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m so happy that you enjoyed both parts of this story and felt they worked together well. I really appreciate your feedback. :) - Muse
If this isn't the best thing I've read I don't know what is. How often do you find high level fiction on a fanficky site? I hope you major'd in English somewhere.
(And I'm not even finished yet. Bookmarked until my homework is finished.)
Author's Response: Hello! Thank you so much for all your lovely reviews! I\'m sorry it\'s taken me so long to reply. Funnily enough, because school work was keeping me away. I am thrilled that you enjoyed this story so much and completely flattered by your very kind words. Thank you again! This review really made my day. -Muse
