AJ Rose said it so well, I’m not going to bother to rephrase it. Straight from his blog to mine, with his permission:
I said it on Facebook last night, and I’ll say it again: you have all struck me speechless with the love and support you’ve all given Fen and me. He and I spent yesterday in a bit of shock. For three years, this was our dirty little secret (not as secret as we thought but pffft), and we feared the same kind of fall-out we’ve gotten in real life. We should have given you far more credit in a genre built on acceptance, where love is love and you want stories where gender doesn’t matter.
You are the best of humanity and I’m proud to be a part of it.
