Trying To Escape The Inevitable

”I still care. I know I do, because I can feel it lodged painfully in-between my ribs, a giant, serrated shard of ice that burns with every breath, tugging, gouging, dragging. Caring always hurts, because you’ve got something you don’twant to let go- but ultimately, you have to let everything go, sooner or later. But that doesn’t mean it’s painless.”

That seriously made me cry. You reminded me of my ex girlfriend, I fucking loved her, and that's exactly how I feel. I still care, even if she hates me.

You're amazing, you really are. This story... It's just perfection. The way you characterized Frank, so vulnerable and self loathing, you just feel for the guy. Ocean, well, I don't really like her all that much. She isn't a bad person, she just doesn't notice how much she can hurt poor Frankie. Mikey is just so timid and... Well exactly how I imagined he would be. Gerard....I just.... I dunno. He's a complicated lost soul here.

Wow. Uhm, sorry, I didn't mean to babble on and in there. I just really love this. I have to say this is my favorite chapter.

And I hope Frank comes to accept his feelings soon. And that Gerard will stop being such an asshole to him.

Ohhh, sorry I made you cry! D; I know what you mean...I feel similarly with a guy I met last summer, and it's horrible.
Gah, thank you SO much! Seriously, what you've said really means a whole fucking lot. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a lovely, detailed review (they make my week) and I'm so glad you like this! I'll update as soon as I can- thanks again for reviewing :'D
