:DDDDD

Don't get me wrong, "omg I like girls?!" is not a storyline I'm tired of yet, but it doesn't seem to me you could do much interesting with that in 500 words, or even 1400 words. So established relationship it is. :)

I am always, always interested in Dawn's keyness and false memories, and given how little the show was willing to do with it, I am always looking for more fic that deals with it, even in a small way.

Giles/Faith is always sneaking in on me. Oops.

Honestly, I don't much in the way of queer!Dawn thoughts. I'm so invested in the narrative of her becoming her own person that I have trouble thinking about her in romantic relationships (even though those can be part of a person establishing themselves, too, of course). And the only person I'm really interested in exploring her with in the Buffyverse is Illyria - I imagine they could be very interesting to each other, for Key/God-King reasons. All that's probably why this came out being a lot more about Faith than about Dawn. :D

I am so pleased that you enjoyed the fic. It's great knowing that when I post femslash I'll probably have at least one enthusiastic commenter. :D

Will never be tired of this (though I feel as though too much femmeslash focuses here - so it's a delight to get something else!).

Ditto! Keyverse ftw always.

(I never, ever require apologies for Faith/Giles sneaking in.)

I could seriously get behind this. I'd love to see them interact!

I WILL ALWAYS SQUEE FOR FEMMESLASH DON'T YOU WORRY.
