Comments received on the story include:
- I adore the story. I have loved Mary Renault's Alexander since I was about 13 years old and your story certainly hit the spot. I love gapfillers and your is perfect. I can imagine little Alexander being such a child. I can't thank you enough. This was one of the nicest gifts that I got!. —alexcat
- I love the tale you've woven here from just a few lines of the source. Beautiful missing scene and a great glimpse of young Alexander. ''—ruric
