re: Chrononauts ***SPOILERS***
I love this story. In fact, I love this story so much that I find myself at a loss for words. How to leave a comment that somehow matches what I felt while I was in the world of your story? I am tempted to say that this is my favourite story from the entire fest, but well, I haven't even read all fics, and then there is so much widely different stories that I don't think a single one can be my favourite. But - this one made me cry and for days put an ache in my heart as all good stories do. This one challenged me incredibly, with its twisted, odd, confounding time lines and its impeccable logic, after all. This one made me fall in love with Draco and Harry all over again, even when they had other names, and Draco had freckles and Harry blond hair. I am still stunned with the originality of your plot. And with how daring this is, to give fandom such a bleak future for H/D. And still make it work. In the end, you made me wish that this other Harry and Draco - the ones who fight and take drugs, the alcoholic and the morph addict - were the "real" ones, the ones whose time line is the canon one. You made their love shine so brightly, in all the despair. The Epilogue compliant timeline has nothing, absolutely nothing on their love. Thank you so much for this. *bows* A Most Happy New Year to you! /

Oy vey, finally finishing answering lj comments on a fest that ended over a month ago! ::hangs head in shame::

Thanks so, so much for your lovely comment, and the rec you made for this story on your lj. It totally made my day. The fact that it touched you, the fact that Harry and Draco's changed names and appearances weren't off-putting, and the fact that you could still see that the alcohol/drug abuse (which thoroughly intimidated me when I read it on my giftees's wishlist!) and the fighting was only the surface and they really did love each other deeply - I was left with a glowy "don't talk to me, I've just gotten a really wonderful comment" expression for a really, really long time.

Thank you, so so much!
