  1. This fic is *the* CA fic for me. It has everything I could ever ask for. Cordelia/Angel *and* Cordelia/Angelus *and* there’s a happy ending.

    I have read this more times than I can count. There are scenes in here that I literally count amongst some of the most romantic moments of all time, and that’s counting TV, movies, books, etc, everything.

    For example, the “You own my heart if you will have it.” scene just gets me every.single.time I read it. Ugh, so good.

    Thank you so much for lending your incredible talent to this fandom and to the C/A pairing.
