(#) sparkle_monster 2011-05-23I really like this. My great aunt has it too. Her husband died last summer and she couldn't remember whose funeral she was at. Then at a party she kept asking who I was and once someone explained and was done exposing she asked again and again. It's really a horrible thing. I'm sorry about your grand father.
PS I really enjoy your writing, favorite author on here.
(#) xFamousLivingDeadx 2011-05-23Wow that was amazing. My step-grandmaw's mom had it and I know it was hard, she would never know who anyone was, she would always forget within a second. She died three years ago. I'm sorry about your grand father.
This was really amazing, it brought tears to me eyes. I knind though Gerard had died just no one told Frank or anyone, I was surprise when I read the reason. This was my favorite one-shot :)
(#) emocutter91 2011-05-23I am openly and quite loudly sobbing now. One reason being that its terrible to think how very realistic this is and that this could very well happen. And god fuck it, what the hell am I gonna do if they ever break up?
If they simply decided to stop touring and shows so they could focus on other familial parts of their lives is one thing, but knowing the divabitch Gerard,s its probably going to be some heat of the moment shouting match while he just happens to be on his manstruel cycle.
sigh. I don't want MCR to go out that way...
And then Two: one of my only friends, Kara, 's great grandpa died on April 30th and I remember watching his awareness of things and recognition dissipate more and more over the time I knew him. Its an awful thing to watch someone go so slowly and you can't help but wonder if they feel lonely even though you're right there holding their hand, because to them, they don't know you.
This was beautiful, so beautiful. I was honestly expecting you to have killed Gerard off in a car accident, or falling back on alcohol and drugs or something, but I was not expecting early-onset Alzheimer's. This goes in my favorite's dear:) xoxo Jamie
(#) pocketmouse9 2011-05-23It takes a lot to make me cry, but I was sobing at the end of this. There was so much emotion behind it. It is amazing to me because it all seems so real. Too real, in fact. Words cannot describe how touched I was by your story. Truly a lovely piece of work.
(#) GetUpAndGo 2011-05-24Fantastic!!!! :) Very well written, the bit with Gerard's thoughts is GREAT. Alzheimer's is really tough, I took care of my Great Gramma that had it. It was very hard to watch. She didn't progress too far before her time, but she was starting to forget me. Anyway, swell job. Fave'd. xoxo
