Oh sweet god, I must have missed this one at your LJ, but I'm so glad I saw it here. Damn, you write so beautifully, woman! Warmth builds inside Remus slowly, curling through his body like the smoke hanging in the air, something distant and muted that Remus can't quite reach. All these wonderful images and this syntax that just lets words fade into other words, painting this lovely picture that I can see so clearly, and feel so acutely. Just stunning, and the end? Yeah. You totally win.
