Uh and the ending made it even MORE awesome

All that, and then he wants to show Rodney!

Thank you. I don't think John has shown anyone before.

Awesome! Trust Rodney to have the perfect response. He loves John no matter what shape or form, but I'm glad his reaction was exactly what it was.

Thank you. Rodney had already seen John with the satin panties, and knew about some of it. But what he didn't know was that John could turn his good looks to feminine advantage.

when there's so much else to ping my radar, why am i hung up on pilot!john with gloved, manicured hands? your imagery rules. it's like, one bit in his crazy life he could control or something.

great story as per usual. you just keep busy with nice one-offs like this, take your time with OOB (cough or else it'll be over too quickly and I'll have withdrawal symptoms cough)

I realized later that it probably sounded like his nails were long. They're short, but perfectly manicured. When he takes them off to, say, eat, the guys think he's a little effete, but they've no idea.

I've no intention of taking my time OoB. I have a very busy quarter starting January 5th, and if I don't get the first draft done this weekend, it will be very hard to find time to work on it between January and mid-March. So you want me to finish it now. Really.

For some reason, John wanting to highlight his eyes, his "best features", choked me up. And buying the ad...! And forgetting how to walk in the shoes. And trusting Rodney so much - being so happy, so himself, so liberated.

Very well paced,how do you fit so much into a small one-off? And I don't even like crossdressing fic, as a rule (yes, SGA has corrupted me).

poor Jensen, though!

It had been five years since he'd walked in high heels (excluding the time on PX5-735 which they are not talking about, ever).

... being so happy, so himself, so liberated.

Yeah! That's it. That's it right there. He gets to be fully himself without any of his usual secrets here, with Rodney.

This is great-- such attention to detail, such realism! Well done!

Thank you so much. The realism was the fun part, because it's not easy for John to pass, not even as good-looking as he is.

This was extremely hot! And the imagery was so beautifully clear. Gorgeous!

Thank you! It's one of those stories that I'd write for myself, to read and enjoy later.

This was one of the few SGA Santa stories this year that really caught my attention. It was very well done and I really enjoyed the detail. I have nothing more coherant than that as my head is stuffed full of cold rather than eloquent feedback! So I'll just say I loved it!

Really? Thank you!

Yes, those head colds take up a lot of space.

I really liked this, I thought it worked really nicely. Everyone else has come out with all the things I liked best (the gloves, the shoes, the wigs) so I think I'll just say ditto to their comments!
icarusancalion
Jan. 3rd, 2009 11:26 pm (UTC)
Hee. People liked the gloves. I don't blame John with his ultra-straight hair wigs. He's had years of frustration.

Oh, this was... sweet and beautiful and it felt very, very real. Good stories about crossdressing (and transgender) often have that feeling of sad sweetness to them because they are about things you can have, but only right now. You capture that beautifully. I had to fight my way through the details (I'm not a native speaker, I was lacking vocabulary) but it was very much worth it.

That's an interesting observation. You're right, it's like a honeymoon. The clock starts running out the moment it begins. Nice that John can share it this time.

Thank you. I liked being in the room with John, watching his transformation.

This was very engaging and interesting! I also really liked the ending. Not that I wouldn't have loved to read more, but... it worked really well just like that.

Thank you. I was tempted to go beyond that point (at least some squeaky bedsprings ;), but decided we all know what happens next.

I lived in San Francisco in the early 70's and had trannie/cross dressing friends. I really appreciated how you expressed the contentment he felt in his (admittedly methodical) preparation. The body hair? yeah... I remember that being the big challenge for the guys =) ...brought back fond memories =)

Thank you. I helped a CD friend with a "dress-up" session and... three hours to remove the hair. And two bathtubs of water. Plus a shower. Fortunately he was one of those guys couldn't grow a beard to save his life, so he was spared the beard cover.

Yes. John is the sort of person who loves a job done well for its own sake. That he could share it with Rodney was gravy.

This was wonderful! So sensual. I could practically feel John's excitment and anticipation buildng myself. So much so that when Rodney arrived I felt a tiny knot of anxiety for John!

Lovely, lovely stuff.

Oh, thank you. Now you make me want to read it again.

John knew how Rodney had responded to his panties. He was hoping that Rodney's enjoyment of "female attributes" would carry over to himself. (Of course, that was one reason John regretted not being able to tape up an impressive cleavage.)

I really loved the attention to detail you put into this story. :) and it was rather hot. :)

**still grinning** Now that was HOT! I was mesmerized by the detailing and his emotions as he transformed himself into whom he loved. Thanks so much!
