Reactions and Reviews
There are sadly very few fics with Fitz as a central character, so when I do run across one it tends to stick with me. Written from Fiz's POV, it's partly an introspective character study on Fitz's feelings for Duncan. It incorporates my own head-canon for Fitz, which is that he is attracted to beauty in all it's forms and not just to women. Although there's still plenty of wine and women and Fitz's mischievous nature is in full evidence. The events of the story see the relationship between Duncan and Fitz change drastically, whileat the same time it seems nothing has changed at all. By the end, your heart breaks a little for Fitz, however it's not a sad ending, just sort of wistful.
Duncan/Fitz. I must admit the pairing had me skeptical(though I shouldn't have been it is elyn after all). I loved it, and I cried. rec: November 2000
