Oh, wow. I read this all in one go, and now I can't stop smiling. I love every single thing about this story...even the things that I feel would normally grate on me. Like the sappiness that hit sort of epic proportions, but somehow felt absolutely right here. Or the side characters that should have seemed too cliche or overly perfect, but somehow came across as wonderful instead.
Lukas and Alan and the build-up of their relationship was everything I could have ever hoped for. I'm fairly certain I could be happy reading more of their story forever.
