My gifts (yes, plural!) have posted on sshg_exchange, and I tell you now: RUN DO NOT WALK to read All Shadows Pass Away. I am blown away by the gorgeousness of the prose, the vivid lushness of the descriptions, the liveliness and depth of the dialog...There are cats and libraries and walled gardens, Tuscany and Wales and Hogsmeade, there are theological/philosophical debates and picnics, there are echoes of myth and legend, and most of all there is so much love in all its forms: friendship, healing, loyalty, desire, passion, faith.

As if that weren't gift enough, the same Mystery Author also created a lushly beautiful piece of art based on my story A Price Beyond Rubies which looks like a page from an illuminated manuscript and which forms a perfect linking device between that story and hers.

Even if Santa leaves me nothing but coal this year, I will consider myself supremely well-gifted indeed :)

Yes, you actually are! I've just finished reading it. The word 'masterpeice' comes to mind. And you got art too!

I saw!! I want that illuminated manuscript artwork, like now! Reminiscent of the Book of Kells! BEAUTIFUL!

And so well-deserved, my dear!

I gobbled it up like candy yesterday, and am considering giving it another go... it is just that good! I still maintain that the BEST SS/HG fics every year come out of the SS/HG exchange I do hope it will continue on in some form. You are most definitely a lucky little fangirl, I and hardly wait for week two of the exchange.

I agree, I think SSHG brings out the best of the best in terms of writing talent. I can't believe we're only in the first week!

You'll get no argument from me. That was a divine story. Just full of emotions. I was an absolute mess at the end, in the best possible way.
