[the story A Ripping Good Yarn is] Dedicated to my dear, lovely Barbana, who actually read some of the plagiarized bits out loud at a crowded restaurant during Escapade. Greater courage hath no woman. Even a heaving-bosomed one. This was an overlooked bunny from Escapade, and when I finally ran across the story again, I had to get it down. And yes, it is a REAL book.[1]



*faints* Oh. My. God. *is speechless* This [art for Dragon-Blind] Honestly, it's so hot and gorgeous that I'm literally beyond words, a rare state for me. Unf*ckingbelievable, Barbana. Just impossibly beautiful and sexy. Guh.[note 1]


Barbana made a gorgeous, steamy-beyond-words picture inspired by the [Dragon-Blind] story ; check it out with ice water handy.[2]


Huge thanks to Barbana, for luring me into the beauty and sexiness of Jack and James (and Jack Davenport) and making many helpful comments on my first baby in this fandom. This is all her fault.[3]

The delicious, beautiful artwork that will be scattered through the story - including the story icon and banner - is by the incredibly talented and awesome Barbana.[5]
