, and Nerys
...I have neglected untill now to read this work--and I now deeply regret this.
The two of you have crafted a deeply powerful story, filled with deep emotional conflicts and arcs. Stirring, at times tear-inducing...and while, at times, it seemed a little rushed (I'm not sure the good Gul would open up to AU Dukat so soon--even if he does
resemble her former superior)--nonetheless, it is a beautiful piece, indeed.
My strongest compliments to you both.
