Old friends are found again.
(#) scarlett_fitch2027 2012-01-22 05:37:06 AMOkay, I'm gonna do my best.
I've been reading this story from the very beggining, watching how each chapter gets just a little bit deeper, breaks just a few more hearts. How you've managed to do that is beyone me, all I know is that you've created a masterpiece here and you should be beyond proud. The plotline, characters, emotion, everything is so real and so raw. And yeah, I've cried reading this. How could you not?
This chapter was, not surprisingly, brilliant. A perfect close to a series of pretty horrific events. I'm devastated Gerard died but really what else could he have done without it being unrealistic? But Frank and Ray have each other and I guess that counts for something.
What can I say that I haven't said before? This is the kind of story that changes people. Can't get better than that.
(#) AlteredStateOfMind 2012-01-22 07:10:05 AMWow...just wow. I'm so sad this story is over, I've been reading it for a while now and everytime I'd see you had posted up a new chapter, it would make my day. But all great things must come to an end and this was definetly a perfect ending to a perfect story. This has to be one of my favorite frerard's I've ever read. And the fact that Frank and Gerard never got together properly and had a happy ending like most stories do was kinda bitersweet. I liked the fact they never did though, it made it that much more realistic; life doesn't usually have happy endings like that. I've really enjoyed this story, you are truly an amazing writer. I'll be looking forward to more of your writing in the future :)
(#) PandaFrankie 2012-01-22 02:00:20 PMSF is completely right. I feel as if I have just finished with a huge part of my life, your life, and so many other people's lives. I'm not entirely sure what to do with myself anymore.
You've made me laugh.
You've made me cry.
You've made me love you, and then hate you. And then love you again.
You've made me think, and sing, and, -ahem- a couple of other things that I deem inappropriate to mention at this time. c;
What I'm trying to say is, I think you have the skill of a professional, the heart and soul of a true author. Only someone as dedicated to their characters, their plotlines and their readers as you are could truly encapsulate the horror of the war, the lyrical, bittersweet beauty of Frank and Gerard's forbidden passion, and then tie it all up with a neat little bow at the end.
I'm scared, now.
I don't know what to do with myself.
Thank you for capturing my attention with a couple of intriguing chapters, thank you for leading me in and upon this magnificent adventure, and thank you for taking the time to go out into the universe and use your greatest weapon- your mind.
Thank you for restoring my faith in the internet, humaity, and FicWad.
Thank you for everything.
All my love and best wishes.
