OK, folks who read my Recs a while back may remember my giving props to "PutMoneyInThyPurse," a british lady on ff.net who writes, brilliant, amazing, seriously hardcore Hurt/Comfort. I mean, nuclear Hurt/Comfort.

Go read her stuff, here:


I especially recommend "Helping Hand," whose ending will make you puddle up, and "Scourgify," which will make your skin crawl, and "Throw me a Line" which will make you puddle up and laugh out loud repeatedly within moments of one another.

Well, I stuck "Surrogate" up on ff.net -- you can find it here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3100707/1/ -- and...

PutMoneyInThyPurse Reviewed it! And Loved it! And put it in her favorites!

I'm already four-hundred pounds of naked happy-dance reading that e-mail -- and isn't that a visual you wanted! -- when I see another one from her: She hadn't noticed the author name when she read the story! So she didn't go into it predisposed to be nice because I'd given her a good review or six! I earned it! I earned it! I earned it!

More naked happy-dance!

I'm a big fan of hers as well. Congrats!

God, she's so amazing, isn't she?

I just re-read the last chapter of Helping Hand, and, God, it just makes my heart swell like The Grinch in the face of Cindy-Lou Who (Who was no more than Two!)

I'm still buzzed by the review.

Oh, and in the "Leviathan's a Goober" category...

I understand, by the way, that it would be possible for someone who's been reading my fics here on my LJ, commenting, reviewing, and helping me make them better, to view my Whole Celebratory Post For One Good Review somewhat askance.

So I want to hasten to add to you, to Mrs. Q, and Tash, and Layla and elfwhistletree, and, yes, gondolinswalls, all of your reviews are greatly appreciated. You've all moved me and flattered me and helped make me a better writer.

Why I'm Woo-hooing for "PutMoneyInThyPurse" is that it just fluttered in and landed out of the clear blue sky, surprising and unexpected and otherwords that mean the same thing.

It's not that I appreciate her review more than yours, it's that, having specifically been granted admittance, I was sort of expecting to hear from you guys, whereas she just stumbled upon my story, and the review was a wonderful surprise.

Sweety, honestly, I treasure every response I get from you, but you're under no obligation of reading these in any "prompt" timeframe. After a good night's sleep is fine!

And, yeah, it is exciting!

It's nice to see you post on ff.net. If hope more people make it there to read your work.

I too like the writing of PutMoneyInThyPurse. I got started on Throw Me a Line and am going to wait until it is finished before I read it. I can only keep track of 2 or 3 WIPs at a time. I must be getting old. LOL

Surrogate's also up at The Quidditch Pitch -- no reviews yet -- and pending approval at HarryPotterFanFiction.com and "Table for Three."

I'm loving "Throw Me A Line!" It's incredibly touching and fall-down funny at the dame time.

I copied the comment I made for Sarrogate on your journal and posted it over at QP. Now you have your first review. :)

Well, thank you very much, and your review has a reply!
pghpatronus at 2006-08-19 02:26 (UTC) (Link)
And I have to say, I'm very proud I managed to bring off a concept as filthy as the fingers in a PG-13-level fic!

Proud you should be. Very well done!
