I remember the first half, but re-skimmed it to get myself back up to date. Still very nostalgic in form. :)
Jacques grinned back at her, eyes bright with mischief. “What if I have a paperwork kink?”
No, Jacques, you're thinking of the Notary. (Wait, that was a Grease song too, wasn't it? [Suspicious look])

That was cute! Plus a little ways beyond cute, but also nicely realistic. It's fun to read about believable people.

Boy, all that talk about the hair and clothing at the beginning makes me glad to be ace/aro! I am not very self aware appearance-wise, and i would hate to start worrying about all that stuff. As usual, not a whole lot I feel I can say about the romance elements, although I have to say: the one line ". . . enough to convince Jenni he was worth not waiting for" is solid gold, a great and expressive variation on the common "worth waiting for." That's probably the phrase that made me understand Jenni's headspace the most.
I also liked the "Time Warp" sequence, with them settling on a . . . shall we say, "not vocally athletic" song to avoid Jenni's glitter getting too prominent. It was a cute moment together! Shame it worked so well so quickly.
At least it got the single line of "You're So Vain" that I know to stop replaying in my head over and over.

I don't think I'll leave a particularly long review because I'm on mobil, but
Y'all did a fantastic job making everyone's feelings vivid and detailed when needed, especially during the first pile of kisses etc, without being purple about it.
The bit near the end about the singing was touching and then funny
Even though this is mainly a romance, it was still noticably a PPC work (the thing with the vampire, for example, just felt very HQ)
