You know, I did notice you'd gone into unusual detail with the shield cloaks a few chapters back, I can't believe I didn't put two and two together!

Poor Tom.. You wrapped this all up nicely. I want to know more about Nat, and we can always have more cal. T/t have grown up such a lot, and really settled into their relationship beautifully. I loved this chapter, but I'm also a little sad, because this has definite whiffs of winding down to a finale and I don't know what I'll do without them! I've grown to love them well out of proportion to fan fiction: and that comes down to your continually excellent writing, characterization and plots. I've lingered in ff long after I stopped writing my own, chiefly to read about these characters and new chapters have genuinely been small bright points in my day. I'm not saying that out of lack respect for ff or because my own life is dull, far from it: just making a little testimony to the power of your writing: touching the life of someone across the other side of the world (I think!)

Author's Response: Shield cloaks AND the spell-deflection. Watch me put my Chekhov's Guns over the mantelpiece! You're right - this is the climax of the story. It's all denouement from here. Two more chapters of it, but aftermath nevertheless. Which does certainly include more on Cal. Nat, I recommend looking to Ignite for. Her backstory matters.

Although I finished writing this ages ago (well, August-ish? barring edits), it's still really, really strange coming to the end of this long period. I've been writing these guys on and off for 10 years now, and it's been one hell of a journey - emotionally, creatively. Fortunately, rather than sadness, I feel a bittersweet satisfaction at waving them off as they go into the sunset. They and their adventures have taught me many things as a writer and storyteller and in trying to do this for a living I will cherish these lessons.

But I digress. I always wrote these stories for my own fun and satisfaction (else, why write OC-focused fanfic??), but the idea that even just one person out there found these tales an ounce as compelling to read as I found them to write makes it all 'worth it'. More than worth it. A true pleasure.

And reaching the far side of the world is a bonus. We're not at the end of the road yet, but I've truly appreciated your support and readership through all of this. Thanks for this review and all the ones which came before.
