I've been writing "Rediny/Ruarch" since the second episode, you can find me at LJ and FF.N as DJ Rocca :D

I am now going to follow him on Twitter. *cheshire grin*

HOLY CRAP! You linked me... *blushes furiously* Well, that was unexpected.

And on a side note, this is gorgeous! And it was your OUAT sketches that first gave me the idea of writing RedXCricket (actually it was a "just got hit over the head" moment, as I realized that the pairing could not just work, but work out very well). So I guess kudos to you for the inspiration that brought about the fic in the first place. ;)

AHHH! thanks. I LOVE YOUR FIC. and you updated and I was so excited! That chapter was pure brilliance. They are so cute. Honestly though your story is something I check everyday for updates. I'm hooked. Everything is so in-character and the dialogue is so well written. Honestly if Red Cricket does happen and it's not like how you've written it with all the awkward cuteness and blushing I'll be most disappointed. Sorry for any typos I'm just super excited that you commented on my pic!

Welcome! =D And thank you so much! Every time I write it's kind of an adventure, because really the characters are calling the shots. ;) Which of course means that Ruby's all sneaky, other characters are skeptical and our dear Archie is loveable but really as observant as a post. *laughs*

And I was going to have an entirely different chapter five, but then our dear werewolf reared up her head and said, "I don't think so, you're missing two other chapters that happen before that chapter, thank you very much!" So this most recent one was a complete surprise to me, I admit. ^^;

It's an adventure.

And thank you SO much on the in-characterness comment! I've been trying to keep up on that and be consistent, which is more work than you'd think. :/ But the fact that Raphael Sbarge has a twitter account helped a bunch! (I was reading an interview the other day and he said, "gosh," in a conversation. I about died via excited giggles. :3 ) So I'm really, very appreciative that you pointed that out. <3

I honestly hope that RedXCricket happens, period, so I think that I'll be happy with whatever format it is in. (Speaking of, Raphael keeps dropping hints about season two and the hope that it will involve Archie's private life/love life. Curiouser and curiouser...) But I agree--it would be wonderful if it was sweet and awkward and this, "how in the world do I react to you?" situation. That would make me very, very happy. =D

And no problem on the typos! I probably have just as many. Not to mention...I was worried about how my comment would be received. ^^; I realized after the fact that I'd gone all fangirl on you and that you might not appreciate that, so forgive me for my own over-enthusiasm. Your art just makes me SOOOOOOO happy!

Especially since it's what started it all. :) Your ability to capture expressions and the intent of an individual with just the slightest change in a person's features makes me grin. Not to mention the fact that this one is especially in-character. You can just see Archie and Ruby coming off the page, which gives me more inspiration than you know. I could just stare at this for hours. (At which point my roommate would probably look at me like I was insane, then forcibly drag me away from the computer.)

Thank you for sharing all your talent!

You're so nice. Believe me I had a total fangirl moment when I read your comment. All the thanks goes to you for writing such a great fic and keeping my little Red Cricket shipper heart going. We need more Red Cricket fanfiction and your story is the setting the bar high.
Shahrezad1 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Aww, thanks. :) And the bar isn't too high up, I hope. ^^ Because it would be great if other people joined in to write about the pairing, too. *crosses fingers* Oh, I hope, I hope...

As a note, you're the first to know--I've got another chapter all written up and raring to go. I just need to do some editing to make sure that the flow feels right, and then I'll be posting. ;)

It's Archie's POV, so it should be lots of fun. ^^ *chuckles to herself*

ALL MY FEELS. Oh my god I nearly died when I found out he ships it. They're so wrong for each other that it's PERFECT. I love what you've done here, Ruby looks so much like the predator she is and that smile on his face just says he couldn't care less. Love it. Love it so hard.
Shahrezad1 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
I agree. It's the expressions that make this truly glorious. :3 That and the hand she's got around his neck... ;)
