I've now read all your Castle fics, and I just cannot express how beautiful they are. I love your style of writing; so complex, like poetry that has to be reread and every time you get something different out of it. I just had to review this chapter, because after reading all your other fics and after having read this once already, this one paragraph stood out for me:
The blood on his shirt is blame realized, and as they wait in the ER for any word on his condition, she has become monosyllabic in her guilt.
Wow. So powerful. So Kate.
Also, I love your use of parentheses!

This is gorgeous, start to finish. I love its quiet, its angst, its tenderness. Lovely.

This was beautiful and filled with powerful emotion.

This rocks. It's pretty amazing a pretty and everything a love story should be. Awesome. Thank you

I read this while watching the Sox game (go Boston!), appreciated the little shout out to 'Tek even though these two New Yorkers would never, ever be members of the Nation...
But that's unrelated because what's far more important is you write SO beautifully. You've got a handle on metaphors that I really struggle with and a way of making internal narrative really compelling. Loved it.

Ok - I have literally just spent the entire evening reading ALL you Castle fics - I can say Ive never done that before and I wouldn't be lying.
Your prose is as fluid as poetry - your word choice produces images in the mind as clear as pictures on a wall - and your attention to detail gives the story of surrealism that draws you in and holds onto you until the last written words.
In a word. Wow. Thank you.

Just read first chapter and wanted to review - which is unusual for me. Then I checked out your reviews and was assured I was in good company - you have many happy readers out there.
So I have a lot of catching up ahead of me, I am greedy and may lurk without expressing proper thank yous so I'll say it ahead of time
wow. Your style of writing has me utterly enthralled. I could gush about how it feels like I've just peeled back the paper on the most wonderful and surprising present when I wasn't expecting anything of the kind (I read a lot of fanfics and I've kissed a lot of frogs)
Thank you for sharing. Your profile did not disappoint. You are a writer.

It was a beautiful story. Of the rare sort that you might never find again. It's descriptive in it's emotions and words. Brilliant!

You are honestly an amazing writer. You are able to spell out their emotions so well! I cannot wait to read more of your stories.
| Overpressure 7/29/10 . chapter 8
You are truly a talented author. The story has a wonderful contrast of hope and despair. Amazingly well done.

I liked this one too. Definitely darker, but still extremely well written.

Wow...I mean, wow...
The ellipses denote...well...speechlessness. Which is something I don't stumble upon very often.
This story was bliss. I must say, I'm usually drawn to the more dialogue-heavy fare, but man-oh-man, your incisiveness, your colorful - effortlessly flowing - prose, your saying so much WITHOUT saying so much...simply divine. I like that the chapters were somewhat fragmented - like we were just catching glimpses of the most important, meaningful moments - separated by unknown-ish amounts of time. They can almost all stand alone and yet they share a common thread that builds emotionally from one to the next. And that book dedication? ...who, while I wasn't looking, became my other half-and the best part of me. Are you kidding? Greatest possible dedication. Ever.
Really, I can't say enough.
They are whole together. They are electric together. They are alive together. They have fallen together.
Thank you so much for sharing.
