Staying calm is the key.
- "Because the way I see it," He told her, "This, it's better then both of us being alone."
That is just so sad. It made Andy seem almost as damaged as Lindsay. Almost.
And is she defensive much? She came across as a real bitch in this chapter. But even that isn't enough to make me dislike her, because she's just so tragic.
Thank you x a million for your rapid updates, because I do get withdrawal symptoms from good stories.
Points to you for all of them because you definitely deserve it xxx
Author's responseThat's what I hoped that statement to do. Lindsey's character is extremely dramatic by nature. I was sure if Andy didn't have some damange of his own she would overshadow him too much. His heartbreak comes into play a few chapters down the line. It hardly lasts like Lindsey's but I think the contrast is needed to keep everything straight. Thank you for the points!
- Fabuloso! I love how perfectly not perfect Andy and Lindsey are for each other. I know that doesn't make sense in writing, but it does in my head. He's got issues with heart break, and she just got issues. They seem as though they are going to be so damaging towards each other, yet so good for each other. It is all very Shakspearian. I love how you write rapid updates too. I should really take a lesson or two in that. Wonderful Chapter!
Author's responsehaha, I understood completely. and I pretty much love the "he's got issues with hearbreak, and she's just got issues." I couldn't have described it better myself. Luckily though, Andy begins to realize exactly where these issues originated from in the next few chapters. I think they were some of the hardest for me to write.
