Not sure when I last reviewed. But I sorely missed this during the que closure!! mwhaha the 'review and continue reading next chapter' message I see below me now also gives me hope!

firstly, I've been suspicious of Tom BEFORE the awkward run in with Toby. Pretty sure he dun it.


Secondly SO MUCH SQUEE FOR NAT AND CAL HOOKUP. Even though it goes *profoundly* against my breakup principles and is ironically exactly what Cal was worried about with T/T, it was just so RIGHT and natural and chemistry laden that I was cheering for them even though I know from your next gen fic that Life is Not Kind to Nat (if you kill Cal off, we will have Words).

What I really do adore about this fic though, is how you haven't shied away from the uglier side of humanity. We're heroic in the face of evil. We stumble when it comes to everyday life and mundane reality, and we never really entirely get over old loves.

Anyhoo. You remain my idol. I want to see our crazy kids finally get it together!

Author's Response: Everyone's so suspicious of Tom! This is Tom Everard, the man who was THIRD choice for Head Boy in his 7th year. Bless him, poor, maligned Tom!

Or he's evil. That's possible, too.

Yes, the hookup was... I didn't *specifically* plan for it when writing the chapter, I just kicked back and let the characters decide, but when I knew it was going this way I thought it would be a considerably worse idea than it turned out to be. I think they can only 'get away' with it because they don't live in the same sphere, they won't see one another for months on end (versus the awkward spiral of self-destruction it would become if it were T/T, with their mutual friends), so an entanglement is less likely to get them stagnant in their lives. Or for once I've got two characters with an ounce of emotional sense, it could happens. But yes, BTP is compliant with Ignite (though as the Igniteverse rolls on, I will deviate from my own personal external canon if needs be!), and so Nat's life is... going to get tough, poor girl.

Thank you so much for the kind words. This is very much the intention of the story, of showing the best and worst of humanity in the hard times and in the normal. We are scarred and flawed and brilliant.

And there's plenty more to come! Thanks for reviewing.
