News release, three weeks later.
(#) RippedIntoPieces 2008-08-30 10:22:34 AMWell that sucked, I mean it was a great ending, but for Bob AND Frank to die sucked. The last few lines bugged me a little, is it written in a newspaper? ie: the daily mail for the slight slander on how the end was fitting for the band?
Anyway, I'll miss the fic a lot. It was great to read, and I loved the plot.
I hope you write something else. But in the meantime, I'll be on the lookout.
See ya round
Author's responseWhy thank you. Yes, the last chapter is supposed to be a newspaper article. I hadn't thought of it, but using 'The Daily Mail' would be incredibly fitting.
Thank you all for reading. This won't be my last story, I promise. Till next time, love you to pieces (don't make me make that literal).
- I read the last chapter and I couldn't post a review straight away because it was too shocking and sad, but it did pave the way for this one.
It could have gone either way and I'm sure you would have written the other ending brilliantly too.
I'm a sucker for happy endings, personally, but that's not what we get sometimes.
I loved every word of this story and I think I may well go back and read it all again, even though I know what happens.
But Bob!!! No!! :( And Frank too :'(
Never stop writing!
(#) ilo9vemcrgmfrb 2008-08-30 03:32:12 PMOkay.
And I never cry.
This has been the most disappointing ending to a story... ever.
Not that I didn't like it, I mean, you are an amazing writer, and I truly enjoyed reading this, but
I was kinda hoping that they're recover, even if Gerard could never sing again.:/
- This is a MCR fan's worst nightmare. I'm not gonna call you an idiot or a moron or an ass for the really really really sad ending 'cause hey...it's fan fiction and it's not true! But well...this is the most disappointing ending. So I won't add it to my faves. This story will haunt my mind forever. You're truly a good writer...really. I was hoping that this'll have a happy ending but since it didn't, Jess must burn in hell! She's a devil! This story has touched my heart oh so emotionally and it inspired me to say this...
Don't carry on with sad endings anymore!
- Wow. When you warned that we wouldn't be getting a "happy ending" I hardly pictured this. You practically killed off three of the five members! This is fucking unheard of!
That being said, I liked that you didn't offer a happy ending simply because the readers would like it. Sometimes, even if they don't love it, it's the better choice to make.
I'm not entirely sure how I feel at the moment regarding this story. I liked the originality of the story line and Jess' character, I liked the progression and the drama you were able to capture within the story. I'm not completely sold on the ending, and again, don't take that personally, because I appreciate you shocking the crowds. hah
My one suggestion would be, and you can do what you wish with it, try to branch out. Don't simply stick to "unhappy endings" because it's what you've always done. You have some talent as a writer and it would be a shame for you to only develop in one genre - it makes for less suspense in the end if your endings are always unhappy.
It's true that life isn't a fairy tale, but it's not a dramatic horror either. There is some middle ground.
All in all a great story that I really enjoyed reading. Good job.
(#) littlepunkrocker13 2008-08-31 08:57:51 PMwow I knew there was going to be a not-happy ending, but I really wasn't expecting this.
It really shocked me.
It was an excellent story, I'll miss reading this.
You are a great writer.
I'll be expecting your next story:)
