This chapter put me on the verge of tears.
no scratch that now the water works have slightly kicked in.
This chapter was so sad, and I loved it all at the same time.
Call me weird or whatever but I find beauty in these kinds of scenarios, because you get to see raw emotion. Theres no faking the love you find for someone in those kinds of moments. Its like an epiphany in some relationships.
Hopefully for Egan it is.
Gee really loves her, I just really hope she sees that now.
That she doesnt have to be afraid.
p.s. You have a talent, and way with words.
Author's responseDon't cry!Hands tissue Or, rather, do cry, because it boosts my ego.
I understand perfectly loving things that are very sad. I take some kind of perverse pleasure in sad situations, I can't help it.
I can't tell you if it's an epiphany in Egan's case or not. I don't know yet myself. I do know that she has the hardest time just letting herself be happy. And that she's a lot more afraid than she'll let on. But Gerard does love her. Very much.
P.S. Thank you. I work very hard to have that so called way with words :D
- I'm so glad to see the quick update!
This chapter was intense. One thing you have done consistently well throughout this story is making the characters believable. Like the way Egan has continualy tried to destroy herself, and Gerard won't let her succeed. The charcters have different emotions, but their main characteristics never change. That's what makes great writing.
The opening line of this chapter was awesome by the way.
Author's responseI know, this updating in a timely manner thing...I'm on the ball.
Aw! You think I'm consistent! No way! I always freak out about stuff like that, I'm like, "Was that out of character? Was there enough buildup? Would s/he do that?" So it's nice to get the posititve feedback.

oh god! silly Egan!(although i do get her) thank God Gerard found her. they need to sit down and have a good long chat! she needs to open up to him. i want them to succeed.
thanks so much for updating!
Author's responseWell thank you so much!
Yeah, we can all of us relate a little bit to Egan. I'll admit she's a bit dramatic sometimes, but then sometimes, she gives the situation the gravity it needs. It kind of varies...;] And there is definitely some hard-core talking in their future, I've already decided that.
I want them to succeed too.
And you are quite welcome for the update!
