I turned away from fanfic and fandom in general several years back, on returning to see if my memories had distorted the reality of the online world I found this series and it has singlehandedly restored my faith in the internet.

While 99% of fanfic fails to do more than offer an audience to squealing fangirl wannabe writers (I'm not being pretentious, I'm being honest, I was one of those writers once), fics such as The Whitman 'Verse completely outshine the drivel that is out there and remind us what real talent is.

This is one of only two stories (online or published) I've read that offer an honest look at the compulsions that can lead to a true D/s relationship, and the only example I've ever found of a story that gets to the heart of illnesses such as bipolar disorder and depression- and they're not even the point of the overall story and are mentioned only in passing.

I only have two regrets- one, that since reading this I find cannon incredibly unsatisfactory and have therefore reread the entire saga several times, and two, that I long ago deleted my Livejournal account so can only offer an anonymous review.

You are an incredibly talented writer and I wish you all the best in your future endeavours- while I am wholeheartedly among those waiting eagerly for the next part of this series, I know that whatever you choose to turn your pen to will turn to gold.

Best wishs,

Well thank you for those kind words. I'm always glad to hear my work gets reread value.

It seems as if this work has suddenly been discovered by new people out of the blue. Always a nice feeling.

Just so you (and everyone else) knows Whitman 5 has finally gotten off the ground. Nothing close to an ETA though as real life and other witting projects have been getting in the way.

I will be using part of the story though to explore Colby's half of the D/s equations. For the most part he has convinced himself he's only doing it for Charlie, very much denying and fearing the pleasure he gets from it himself. So hopefully that will turn out interesting.

I may also be using one of the OCs to look at how the after effects of abuse can effect that kind of relationship.

At any rate thank you for all the nice things you said. Since Whitman 5 might take a while I hope you'll have the chance to look around at my other work. Possibly not quite as epic or deep as this series but they might help pass the time. :)
