Followed you over from LJ, and I was thrilled to read this. Even though I'm not familiar with the character of Ivan, you captured the idea of someone not of their world trying to understand. Even though I only skimmed the sex, I thought what I read was beautiful.
I've had a bit of a Hermione/Snape with Black Jewels thing written, but I wondered if there would be an audience for it. Well, you can't reply to me here, but I just commented to your LJ one. I'd appreciate your thoughts.
