you're brilliant! your whole story is brilliant! everything is brilliant!
I mean, I read Eden and I've just read this!
I've understood lots of thing but it has been strange looking into lucius' mind.
I hope that you'll write eden from lucius' POV... it will be really interesting.

Oh my God that was wonderful. Please, please, please do the whole story through Lucius's point of view.

Hello there Obsessmuch :) I was an early fan and was as breathless as every one else on this forum as it unfolded. It's still thrilling to re-read even now, years later. In fact, I just re-read Eden a couple of days ago and for me it remains the most passionately written, intense story for this genre. I left rave reviews several times long ago so I won't carry on now - you know how good it is!
Anyway, I just happened to find The Fall of Man today and read it for the first time. It was a rare treat to read Lucius' perspective this time. It was so difficult to try to get in his head in Eden that this provided a little tidbit into his 'suffering'- although Hermione's pain is far more searing and bleak than his. But I suppose given his status and his pride, what is happening to him is also devastating in many ways. Thank you for that little morsel!
And now I just want to say, after having read your author's note, that I hope you are still in as happy a place as you were when you wrote that. I see that that was about a year ago. It's now June 2012 and I hope things are still going great for you. I'm a... er... 'mature' reader (lol) and I have a daughter and niece who also have eating disorders. So I feel a lot for your past pain and I hope that you are recovering that way and have lots of support. Congratulations on going back to school also! Are you still studying voice/music? I'm sure you will do well at whatever you choose and I wish you all the best. Please keep up your writing! You have a passion and a gift and you remind me a lot of someone I know. (someone who didn't get the encouragement and push to keep going with her writing) So I continue to be a fan and maybe one day I'll get the courage to write a story and post it here! Take good care xo

Darling, I was one of your many, many fans when Eden was still in progress, and I recently came back to the site, and remembered your wonderful FF writing. I was so excited to see this chapter from Lucius' POV. I sincerely hope life has been good to you, and best of luck.

Reading this now, after reading all of Eden, is so enlightening. There are so many things that happen, just in this one chapter, that I completley misunderstood when I read chapter 26 of Eden. It was amazing. Seeing into Lucius' mind was an amazing experience. I wasn't going to cry. I really wasn't going to. But I got halfway through this, was really enjoying it, and then remembered how it ends. He DIES. And this is so, incredibly painful to read just because of that.

I can't believe I didn't see this sooner. This chapter was... brilliant. No, not brilliant. I don't have words to describe it. Till this day, Eden is still my favourite story. I got the same sensational feeling reading this chapter that I did whilst I read Eden. You're an amazing and talented writer. Thank you so much for this chapter from Lucius's point of view.
On an unrelated note, I'm glad to hear that you're happy and still writing. I'm glad things are working out and wish you the best in the future!

Please write another story about Hermione/Lucius! Not Eden, it's so sad((( Write another story about them but with good ending. Please!
| 83annak 8/21/11 . chapter 1
thanks for rewriting that chap. I think this was a brilliant idea. Your "Eden" story is my all time favourite story...so special so moving...it's the only FF ever I was crying my eyes out about...so it's great that you gave Lucius PoV to us...makes it only more complete...and I think the chap. turned out very well...but I am not surprised about the fact because your writing skills had convinced me long time ago!

I read this the other day but didn't want to log in. :) Thank you for posting for all to read. I was very pleased to see you listed in the HP archive for Lumione when I checked it in desperate need of some fanon shipping. I was thinking that I should go back to chapters 25 and 26 of Eden and then what do I find? THIS! This beautiful, intense inner-struggle fic. :)
Thank you :) (too many smiley faces? I don't care. I'm smiling at you.])

Thank you so much for an update.
I remember finding Eden when it was relatively new, only five posted chapters I think. It is still to this date the best fan fiction I have ever read. You are an amazing writer, and I really hope that you will be published one day :) I'd be so proud to buy a book written by you. Maybe it's because we as readers saw you struggling while writing Eden. I sometimes found myself worring about you because of your authors notes. I was in a dark place back then as well. But things got better. I found love as well. Tonight I randomly thought of you because of a tv show about eating disorders, I've had one as well, maybe that's why I coudn't forget about your situation. I saw your new chapter and I am so so so happy to hear you are doing better.
Thank you for writing. And best wishes from a Scandinavian friend.

I’m very happy I got to read this. It’s interesting to see things from Lucius’s pov. Some of his thoughts and reactions were actually a little surprising to me, but in a completely brilliant way. I would really, really, really love to read more from you soon.
PS: As for your “very long and self-involved” author’s note, I’m happy to hear that you’re happy. Good luck in love, and school, and, well, life!
| AChiMiDice 8/2/11 . chapter 1
Brilliant as always. Glad to hear you're doing well. Eden remains my favorite fic of all time, not just in the HP fandom, but in any fandom.

i thought you forgot about this. thank you for finally updating it, it's amazing, gives much more insight on Lucius. :)
