"If voices aged, they grew deeper, scratching in the throat, scarred with a lifetime of lies that scrape up your esophagus from your gut like broken glass." I found this to be a particularly deeply poetic line.
-In this chapter, I'm fully struck by how well Santana compartmentalizes. Her attachment to the Catholic church is so at odds with much of her day-to-day existence and her choices. As I read about her and church, I immediately remembered how she agreed when Brittany called Quinn a hypocrite. I don't have a negative feeling about Santana for it b/c I honestly think everybody is hypocritical to some extent. We all struggle with living, thinking, feeling, and behaving in accordance with the values we proclaim- some of us struggle more than others. This chapter is just bloody brilliant. I realize the author has retired from writing fanfic, but I hope she does other writing b/c the writing is sublime.

"West Lima crack district, probably. Or worse. Cincinnati." As someone born, raised, and living in Ohio, I laughed at this line :D Now I'll say Lima is sooooo much worse than Cincy imo. Ugh. One of the crappier little cities in the state.

"Ultimately, it was better to be an idiot savant than an addict." Curious how the author foretold the future by a couple of years :) The abysmal season 4 finale does, indeed, suggest Brit is an idiot savant.

I just reread this entire story again. I read it before about two years ago when I was 16. I think I have a better understanding of the meaning of this story now. It's so amazing. Thank you for bringing this out there. Truly one of the most amazing Brittana fanfictions I will ever read.
