Better than Canon
I know. That is a lot of five star ratings ... but what can I say? This story merits every star. Maybe even a few more. You should read it and see for yourself.
ScapeArtist did the impossible in this story. She presented a younger version of a character (Killian Jones) in a way that was entirely believable AND gave hints of the man he would become. As if that weren't enough, she did it again with a lesser known character as well, Killian's brother Liam. Seeing him as a young man coming suddenly into adult responsibility was poignant and sobering. Even with the adventure/danger/mystery of this story, there is still the perfect sprinkling of humor. Also, if you have read more from ScapeArtist, you'll find again that her attention to detail is brilliant, giving a full and absorbing picture for the reader without ever becoming tedious. I wish I knew how she did it. She's a marvel.
So, with that said, please do read this story if you have any fondness for sailing, mystery, or Killian Jones. Or if you just want a good, solid read. You won't be disappointed!
Sit, Stay, Feel: One to read and then read again
This is a wonderful story with more heart than I expected. I was caught from the original beginning (there's something so memorable about the meet cute involving the hero vomiting from food poisoning while the heroine bonds with his dog). I thoroughly enjoyed watching this story take shape as ScapeArtist wrote it, and then, once it was finished, I read it as a whole. Very satisfying.
Her nods to the show characters and events are clever and fit seamlessly into the story. The Rumpelstiltskin murders ... chilling and perfect. Killian's scarred hand. Emma's history. All of it was so good.
You should just give it a read and see!
