Sorry to be so delayed responding here but I wanted to say how much I enjoyed the sheer vitality of your piece.

Several people have commented on the masculinity of both of them, and I do see that too. I also don't see them as feminine, especially in the anime tradition, but you take the strongly marked brows and defined jawlines a step further than I usually see them.

Slash per se isn't that much to my taste and I usually skim more graphic passages in text and appreciate restraint in art. But even with that preference, I have to say quite apart from it, I really admire the way you edit your scenes down to essentials--you focus in on the heart of a scene, an authentic "moment" as you've been doing with the "Titanic" illustrations.

It's fine story-telling, which is my favorite trait, and honest collaboration with an author.

Wow, thank you so much! Knowing that you appreciate the piece outside of the content means a great deal to me.

It would probably surprise most people on L/J to learn that I actually don't like any slash except Az and Crowley. Most of my other ships are cannon, so I can sympathize with you when it comes to appreciating restraint with pairings like this.

Essentials, such a lovely way of thinking of it (I've always thought of it as laziness...). Your comments are always so inspiring to me, thank you again for the kind words!
