I have been reading MFU fanfic for years now. I think this story touches the heart of the "why" so many of us gravitate toward slash. And could go on for hours about it...lol After 20 plus years...this is one of my top 3 stories ever read. Gen or slash. Thank you for this gem. Marie :)

Cord, this is perfect, I swear. I reread it at least once a year, maybe more, and each time it's like reading it the first time. The voices are spot on and the men's sense of discovery is so right. I love it!

OMG. This may just be the most perfect first meeting story I've ever read. The concept is phenomenal,and the execution unravels like a sonnet. You've uncovered something precious, and I am undone by the revelation. Bravissima.

I read this tale sometime ago and reading it now was just as satisfying as the first time. Excellent storytelling, thanks for sharing!

I love this story. I've read it several times -- the way it reveals itself in layers and exposes the characters in layers as we move around in time. It's a terrific piece of writing. You write them both in such a sensual fashion that also feels very true. A real pleasure.

Hey, So I've read a lot of MUNCLE fiction in the past month, slash and gen, and this is the story that I keep returning to. There's something a little grittier about it. If you give me time I'll come up with some proper feedback, but I wanted to let you know :)

Cord, you did it to me again. Left me breathless and filled with gratitude for your skill, your insight and the fact that you share both in my favorite - really my only - fandom. I love your Illya and Napoleon, I love their relationship, their dialog and their sex. I love it all. Thank you so much.

Stunning, great story. I loved the balance of vulnerability and control in each man. Believable, sexy and very satisfying. I hope there are more to come.

This story is amazing. I adore your Napoleon and Illya, the memories they share, and the passion between them. I was actually quite moved by this portrait of the beginning of a partnership.
