... it's day 6.
(#) girlinthemoon 2009-01-04 11:38:54 AMI’ve missed a few “days” to this and I’m sorry. I read all three this morning and now I’m going back and reviewing them.
To answer you’re A/N…What you are writing is deep, heartfelt, beautiful, insightful and inspiring. Nothing would change that. It doesn’t matter that you’re using Gerard as the character to tell the story. This would stand on its own, even if you didn’t share how personal it is.
I wasn’t surprised that he went out and bought a beer. It was bound to happen at some point. But his strength to NOT drink it was a surprise.
I like how supportive Kat is in all of this. She is really there for him and would do anything to help. It shows how much she loved him.
Author's responseHey, don't be sorry! We all have this thing called real life we have to deal with sometimes. LOL
Thanks for this note.
Ah yeah, the beer. I actually did that btw. I think I might have drank it, had I not gotten so pissed that I crushed the bottle. I was so out of it too. I mean, I'd barely slept at all (and that alone will do messed up stuff to your mind) and then all the physical, metal and emotional shit on top of it? Yeah.
I hope the real Kat was as supportive. At least we know Gerard made it through it all somehow.
- My rating points have just been refreshed and i've just used them all on your story haha.
I could really believe the struggle and self-loathing Gerard had when he bought the beer. It was so sad. I loved when Kat found him and held him up and was just there for him in such a simple way.
I totally agree that this could so stand on its own.
Author's responseAwesome! Thank you =D
That "scene" was one of the most important things in this whole sordid tale. *sniff*
Dude ... I just looked at the story and every "chapter" was GREEN with ratings. Holy crap! You guys are awesome =D
- Re your note at the end - knowing it's personal gives it an extra edge, certainly, but what really carries it is how phenomenally well written and moving it is. It may be that way because it's obviously from the heart and experience But if we didn't know how real it was, I don't think it would make a difference - it's too good to not be deserving of such high praise. Brilliant, in fact :) Allow yourself to believe that, because it's true.
Author's responseWell, thank you. Seriously. It makes me feel really great when folks say this one was well written and they get something out of it. Reviews like this always make my day, so thanks again!
