That I can't make you stay But where's your heart? And I know There's nothing I can say To change that part
- Oh my! She can definitely be cruel. But not as cruel as him. I hate that there's no taking the blame. Sometimes in fights - if you want anything remotely resembling amicable to be the result - you've got to take some of the blame. And it's like, when they did that, it wasn't really taking blame, it was putting more on each other.
I guess he just can't comprehend that marriage isn't keeping up fronts - that's public life. In marriage you should be able to share all that, and help each other through it. If you can't do that, I don't think you've got business being married.
He definitely expects a lot from her that she shouldn't need to give him. I don't know, maybe he's on drugs or something...
Either way... that was probably my worst idea of a breakup.
Haha, I can't believe she said she was with Bruce - and that he had checked there. But in the end, if she had answered his question, I wonder if he'd have believed her. This is sneaky, suspicious Gerard. And I don't like him.
Okay... that's about as much sense as you'll get out of me.
I really liked it.
And, MORE! :D
Author's responsei know what you mean, relationships supposed to be 50-50 or like Dr Phil says 100-100 but their relationship is not even 30-45, they just don't know how to make it work...i mean yeah they love each other but they're also dysfunctional and have other issues they have to deal with too...i guess it's save to label their relationship as a kinder garden romance, neither knows how it works but each is convinced they're on the right path of discovering.
- I started off thinking that Gerard was being the mature one then! Asking if they could talk and stuff. But that was such a sad chapter, it feels like they are falling apart and Gerard is going to die, all alone, it's so sad. But then I know that you write something lovely to make it all happy....or at least I'm hoping you will! I think Sky and Gerard make a really believable, sweet couple and I love your writing, which, by the way, has improved a million times since the start of your story. And that's pretty impressive considering how fantastic it was at the start.
Author's responseaw thank you so much! what really jumped from everything you said is that you said they're a believable couple and that's something that is really important for me...like i don't want them to appear over the top...basically what i try to ramble is that i'm grateful that you think that they're believable because for me it's one of the most important qualities in a story.
- this is typical gerard and skyler trying to communicate. this is so them. and yeah, either one always walks away. i think sky has a bad habit of instead of really thinking about the things gerard said and trying to figure out if something he said was true, she always gets angry and bitter. but not until after she or gerard stormed off. it's like she doesn't say what she feels when the time's right and then all these negative feelings dwell inside of her and she goes and makes them even bigger. once she gets the idea that it's all gerard's fault, she sticks with that idea and exaggerates it instead of taking a look in the mirror. it's sort of like she's in denial. or like she shoves the real point to the back of her mind and concentrates on the things that make her angry. i guess it's easier for her to be angry than humble - or sad. and who can blame her? she's only a human, it's just natural. that's how we are. including gerard. it's more usual for a relationship to get fucked up cause the people in it are too different, but sometimes it seems like gerard and skyler are way too alike. gerard blames skyler yet he ain't no better himself. and it goes either way. it seems that they accuse to not get accused if you know what i mean. kinda like when the cookie jar is all empty and mommy si all pissed off, the first kid to point their finger at someone else and say "she/he ate them" most likely ate some too but isn't willing to take responsibility for that. like bindie stated, you should be able to take some of the blame, not put it entirely on the other one..
Author's responselol you're not bad with metaphors yourself! i always get what you try to explain because you do a good job explaining! and that cookie jar example is perfect one!
i guess they prefer to fight over shit and not really think of it because it's so painful...you know how you love someone and they say shit to you, it'll hurt 98990 times more then if some stranger said it because you love them.
so in the skyger situation a lot of what they say really hit home with the other, so instead of thinking about it, they fight and try to change the other person's mind and really show the other side they're not as bad as they think they are...
lol now that we analyzed and fixed them i suppose we could finish off with a happy end and 5 dogs.
