It nice reading this made me miss nuke. Love the way you always write them. It doesn't come off sappy and unrecognizable. Even tho Noah is sweet boy who doesn't like to lose his cool and actually doesn't mind being helpful and nice, he still has moments where he wants to snap. Cassie almost got an earful.
As for your Luke it's the same thing. People usually write him so girly. You write him like how I think he would be if the show were still on. And like most you don't forget to mention Reid and you don't do it as an afterthought. Or as if Luke doesn't like him or never wanted him. Anyway I guess what I'm saying is that you are completely realistic in what you write. a86;

OH MY WORD! Heart in my mouth awesome! The scene suits them perfectly. Luke would totally come all prepared with a speech like this one. Love it!
Author's Response: Thanks, Gillian. So glad you liked it.

Happy New Year Sarah! All the Nuke writers have various strengths, and among yours is a gift for evoking moods and settings, of ushering characters from sadness to joy and darkness to light. You certainly did that with this lovely New Year's themed piece, which was so much more than fluff. Beautiful job! :)
Author's Response: Thank you, Jim. You always say the nicest things :-) x

Confession, Sarah: I watch very little TV - so I never watched Buffy (sorry 'bout that!). The very good news: No Buffy knowledge necessary! A New Year State of Mind touches me deeply! Noah's isolation - and then all the emotions you portray in the reuniting of Luke and Noah's hearts and souls (and bodies with that gorgeous kiss!) to once again become one is brilliant. Thank you for a beautiful New Year story. Cheers!!
Author's Response: Absolutely no Buffy knowledge required, thank goodness. Thanks so much, Stacey. You're always so supportive and I really appreciate it.

Ah, Sarah, what a great way to start the new year - a story from you! Happy New Year indeed!
You sure know how to tell a story - I'm right there in the middle; feeling Noah's pain and Luke's need and determination. One of the things I love - and conversely sometimes infuriates me - about Luke is his singlemindedness. It was just like Luke to go in for the kiss! And this time I was behind him 110%!!
Thanks for sharing! !
Author's Response: Thanks for the lovely comment, Anne. We may need to work on your maths, though. :-)

Author's Response: Thanks, Bijou. It's always Buffy time in my house so I perfectly understand.

And, obviously, I wish you an awesome 2015! Kinda forgot that bit, with all the crying going on... ;-)
Author's Response: Happy 2015 to you, too x

Crying right now, Sarah.
Because: I practically know the Buffyverse by heart. And the 'can we just skip it' speech is my favourite line in that entire 'verse (with 'we attack the mayor with humus' coming in second).
And I completely agree that the Tara-Willow scene was practically made to be fitted to our boys. I even considered writing it, but every time I did, I lost my nerve.
I'm so glad I never got to put words to paper (laptop, whatever). Because you wrote this more moving, more atmospheric, more poignant and more RIGHT than I ever could have done those lines justice.
Thanks, my dear. Now I'm going to read this again and cry some more. X
Author's Response: Ah, Mariken. As always, you say the right thing. Thanks for that :-)
