I would normally submit this in a reply, but you didn't sign your review so I couldn't. I want to thank you for your insightful review - I do want to apologize if I in any way misrepresented the town you live in or the Appalachian culture. I am aware that not all people who live in the Appalachias are poor; for the purposes of the story I decided to represent Emma that way, but I know there's quite a variety of class differences, especially in Virginia. I have done a lot of research on the culture and the amount of poverty, but I want you to know that I know that Grundy, and other towns in Appalachia, are not full of "hillbillies" or "hicks".
In fact, I find the culture rich and interesting. The music alone is above and beyond anything I've ever heard. I also find the dialects and accents interesting; I live in a place where accents are not as varied and certainly the dialects are not as different. I find the strength of the people who live in Appalachia amazing. And like you said, it's doubly amazing when the ones that are poor make it out alive.
I don't feel attacked by your review; that's not my intention - but I did want to reply and let you know that your comments made me think, and also that they made me determined to not misrepresent such a rich, varied and amazing culture in any way.

I find your description of Mrs. Pillsbury very funny...did you look up where Jayma, the girl who plays her, is actually from? Cause she is from a small town in Virginia...the same town I am from...she was one of my sisters best friends in high school so I knew her as a child...but I can tell you that she didn't grow up in a shack lol...she had a very nice house in our little hick down...I know this is fiction and I'm not slamming you or anything...I actually find it hilarious how people view little Grundy, Virginia...assuming of course that you looked up where Jayma was from...if not then this is a surprising coincidence...our town is filled with a lot of poverty and its nice to see when people like us who are from there make it out alive...keep the fiction coming about her I love to read it...she is after all an inspiration to our population of 10,000 people

LOVE! You're a great writer -jealousy-

Wow, great fic! I liked when Emma got angry at Quinn for saying a child born out of wedlock couldn't amount to anything. You kept both Quinn and Emma in character but you still made the story interesting. I can't wait to read more from you.

OMG...I love this. I love how in character Emma and Quinn were. I love how you showed how tiring and alienating being a teenage Mom can be. Fanfic writers usually gloss over that. For some reason I loved Emma calling her birth mom by her first name and her face darkened.
This defintely feels like a one-shot because readers aren't really expecting a resolution. Like Quinn, we're just gathering our thoughts. But since I loved this so much...maybe we could see the same thing from Puck's perspective? He's talking to Mr. Shue, which could potentially be kinda funny since they're not close like Finn and Will. Just an idea.

genius. loved the emma history.

Wow, that was so good! The way you kept Quinn perfectly in character (stressed, bitchy and desperately trying to be independent and self sufficient) but still managed to have her connect with Emma was brilliant.
