This is, by far, one of the greatest fanfics that I've read (and I read a lot of them). The characters and situations are believable. As is the character development. The romance is done very well and nothing feels forced. Chapter 11 Part 3 turns Boota into The Woobie
for the chapter and made me want to give him a hug. As it is in the main series, Spiral Knight!Boota is still my favorite character.
