*claps furiously* Bravo! Going all the way back to Tapolika's childhood was brilliant. I imagine the suitor who ate like a goat was Koss LOL. I love this glimpse into the happy life Tapolika and Arcathon had together. I loved seeing the ritualizaiton of the wedding.
Thank you for writing this.
You're welcome, Aquarius. And thank you. I think you're the one who inspired me to write this, weren't you, wondering how Tapolika and Arcathon wound up as a married couple?
Actually, I'd toyed with the idea of having Koss as Tapolika's older brother, but it just didn't work. So, yes, the suitor could have been Koss. :)

How magnificent! I'm so glad you wrote this. It's a beautiful glimpse into their lives, and I'm particularly glad that you handled the sexuality in a way that strikes me as realistic, rather than handling it like a romance novel. This is just a wonderful story.
Thank you, Honeybee. I'm happy you liked how the sexuality was handled. I didn't think I could avoid it altogether, but I didn't want to go overboard with it. I think Tapolika would see as just another milestone in her life and what was expected of her, and so I didn't want to embellish it a lot.
