Wow... thank you! This is the first Carson/Elisabeth story I managed to find, and such a good one, too :) I loved the undertoned that express so much about the potential Carson/Weir have. You made my day :)

Thank you for this fic. It saved my sanity after a really crappy day. A little bittersweet, and what I needed right now.
Sorry about the lengthy review that's about to come: Good heavens. This is so ... Warm. And human. And beautiful. And touching. And ... I'm being ineloquent here, please excuse me, but this story, as short as it may be is so very touching because it does what so few fics do: It allows touch. And not immediately the kind of touch that screams: Sex! No, it's soothing and beautiful. Human. Sweet without there being a saccharine overdose. The essence of Carson shines through so wonderfully, the loneliness of Elizabeth. The warmth of Carson - both in body and in spirit. It's ... Uplifting. It's like a big sigh of relief after a long time of strain and stress. It's letting go and not fearing consequences because you know you're safe. The story's a real beauty. And painful, too, because it ends there. Even though it's a beautiful ending and a perfect one, part of me still wants to see more of this. The warmth is almost palpable, you can feel how the embrace and the hug warm a cold spot inside Elizabeth. It's almost as if that's what Carson is meant to be doing - fixing people not necessarily just by his learned skills, but by the ones that are in him - the mending by touch and words and calm and steadfastness and sweetness and understanding and ... I'm babbling. Thank you for a wonderful gem of a story. I doubt that it'll let me go for quite some time.
Never seen a Carson/Liz story before - was thinking it might be Grodin/Weir but I still really liked it and the title and it's corresponding part in the story was great. nice piece.

Short and sweet. It's a pseudo-pairing I've never seen before, but I liked your presentation of it.
