Well, I had this story spoiled for me; I already knew what it was about, but in the end that didn't matter; it was seeing the way it came out, came about, and how everyone reacted, that made it worth reading. This seemed a bit more plausible to me than other renderings of this idea, I think partly because we got to see some insights into William Ellison and why he did what he did. It also rang more true to me because everything wasn't hunky-dory; some classic misunderstanding added some angst and drama (but not too much, or it would have been over the top!). And I loved the sleepy scene!

Aw shucks. This is the sequel to "Birthright"; Blair's first one-on-one with Steven after the events of Birthright. This was nice; a little smarm, a little drama, a little subterfuge.

When I saw that the next story in the "Birthright" series had come out, I pounced on it. Ah this was fun. Whee! There were two things I really liked; one was just the fun with the rumour-mill, and the other was the outcome of the story, which gets me battering on the author's door saying "When's the next one?"
