(#) ThreeCheersForMCR_x 2008-12-12Firstly, I just have to say how incredible this story has been. I have been following it since it basically started; even before I got an account on FicWad. And it has always been my favourite story. It's just so real you know? Sometimes I forget that this is a story and for a moment, in reality, I think of Bert as your fictional Bert, as well as Gerard. You have a real talent to enable people to believe it.
I am so sorry that it is ending. Even though you didn't update regularly, I always check for if you have updated. And when you had, it gave me butterflies and a big grin on my face. If you hadn't already realised, I am in love with this story. And I am in LOVE with your Bert. Man, I have never loved a fictional character as much as your Bert. Is that sad? Oh well.
Anyways, I loved this chapter. I love the way you explained Lily's thoughts. Well, I just loved Lily's thoughts full stop in this chapter. I totally agree with her and her whole opinion on music and how it should be. Though is there going to be an epilogue? I think it would be great if there was, but it's your story, your decision.
I'm extremely happy you finally finished this story. Congrats! But I'm also devastated, in a way. But the happiness overpowers the devastation. Well done. :)
Author's responseI do have an epilogue...but i dont know if i should post it.
Maybe only to you guys.
AND I LOVE FICTIONAL BERT.
The reason I made this story originally was bc there were SOOOO many stories out there HORRIBLY written, and most of them made Bert out to be this crazy fucker who abused Gerard or beat up/raped people.
So...I started writing this.
If i had one wish...id wish this story were real...and that I was Lily.
Wouldnt everyone though?
Thank you all so much for being so nice to me :)
And for supporting this little story through and through.
And Im totally devastated too.
But...there are a lot of stories on here that never end...and drag on and on...and i think thats just tacky.
I think it HAD to end.
But I am sad too.
(#) TheMasteroftheWicket 2008-12-12This is one of the most amazing stories I've ever read.
Not only is it original and touching, it's also so, just, I don't know how to say it.
I fell in love with this story, I honestly did, and I'm so sad that it's over.
(#) PossiblyInsane 2008-12-13I am truly sorry to see this story end. Seriously, will you consider writing a sequel? I mean, all the fans would love to read one and quite frankly, I, and a few of the people I know who read this look up to Lily as a role model in the industry and stuff. Actually, my best friend and I (who's name incidentally is Lily) are in a band and we are the only chicks on the scene, so Lily in the story is a really cool character to read about.
So, do you see why we need a sequel? Please? I'll beg...
(#) ThreeCheersForMCR_x 2008-12-14I totally agree with you on the whole Bert thing. It was nice to have a change where Bert was cast as the good guy and Gerard as the bad. People automatically assume that the whole Gerard/Bert break-up was all Bert's fault. It really gets on my nerves 'cause they don't know what actually happened; they just choose to target Bert as the villain. It's so prejudicial.
And I also agree that stories should eventually come to an end. Otherwise it just drags on and drags on and it eventually becomes boring and people stop reading. You definetly made the right decision to end it. But I think it would be great if you did an epilogue, just to tie all the loose ends together and show exactly what the whole outcome was for the future. Personally, and I think other readers would agree with me, I think it would be a great idea if you posted your epilogue. But, as I said before, it's your story and your decision is the one that counts.
(#) moviemaniac888 2008-12-14Amazing job. I have been following this story for a while now and i am sad to see it end, but I look forward to your future stories.
I love your writing style, you bring you characters to life and give them each a unique quality and air.
I really do think that you should post that epilogue, I would love to read it, but you are the author. You will share it if you feel that it is right.
Once again, Amazing, and I sad to see it go, but I will always remember Saint Lily.
