Wow...I just wanted to say brilliantly and sensitively written.
I hope you'll continue writing because you do have a way of making these wonderful points without changing the characters voice .

I have to tell you that this is my ll time favorite story. My last computer was trashed and I lost all my favorite stories, I had to go on Gleefinder to try and find it. I have never been more happy, it is exactly what I could hope for in a puckleberry fic. Now don't get me wrong I do love the whole puck in shining armor but the idea of Rachel being his port in a storm it's empowering and such a nice change up. I hope you still write and think creatively. Thank you for writing.

Loved your story! Loved the way you gave Puck dimensions and made them relate to the actual character on Glee, it was a believable and really good. :) Hope you write another story soon!

Loved this so much. Although it was insanely long, all of it was really well written and I adored it. Keep writing Puckleberry! And just keep writing in general, because you're amazing at it! (:

I loved this. Puck was so well done and believable. He didn't overthink things, or at least tried not to, which seriously screams 'boy' to me. Puck is more of a doer than a thinker, from what I gather by watching the show, and I feel like you conveyed that well despite the crazy dramatics his life held.
And how he kinda-started to like Rachel, but sticking to the fact that he always sort of liked her. That was awesome. He was just so chill with everything, which was just so damn believable.
Basically great job with the characterizations (which I think I have said about three times now in using different words).
Lovely story and great execution! Your writing is fantastic anddd I'm off to go check out some of your other stories (:

This is a wonderful story. Thank you for sharing it.

One of my favorite things about this story is that you address something that I consider a very real possibility in Puck's past, and a reality that the show skims over: that Puck is, in fact, a prostitute when it comes to his pool-cleaning business. I really dislike how the show skims over that, and his attraction to "cougars" and getting paid for his services-pool and sexual-is presented as normal. It is not normal, and it is not 'cool'. It may seem a very basic Freudian psychology, but I do think that the past you have written here is one of the most probable histories for his character. I really like how you brought attention to the fact that Puck's behavior has to have some kind of cause, because his behavior is not that of a well-adjusted adolescent male. Thank you for focusing on that, because it's always been something that has hung in the back of my mind and shaded my perception of his character. It needed some explanation, and I dislike that many people tend not to focus on the fact that his behavior represents a very real reality. One of the telling signs of sexual abuse in the past is promiscuity, and though it is not always the case, in this situation I think that Puck's sexual inhibitions are not quite a naturally-developed inclination to enjoy his sexuality-but rather, as you presented, a reaction to something that he has yet to deal with effectively.
This story was absolutely fantastic. I really loved how long it was - I'm a fan of long one-shots, or long chapters in multi-chapter stories. That appealed to me a lot, as did your writing style.

Excellent! I liked the revelation of whom the first intimacies had occured with and that Rachel was Noah, without cheating. I also really liked the introspection into why Puck acted the way he did and how his vantage point of sex had shaped his identity and sense of self worth. I like how he breaks all his rules for Rachel and ends up sharing more than he means to. I think you showed how much he's grown in the fact he didn't forget about Artie in his distress, but instead gave his keys to Mike. He's really not selfish. I loved Sam aftering solace and a safe place. I loved Rachel choosing Puck and sticking up for him/by him even in the face of Finn's displeasure. I like that she chose his side and never wavered.I like that you make them friends first and really solidify that, before delving into a solid and stable relationship. I like that they're second coupling just happens and that her father's don't freak out. Mostly because I don't think he could handle them rejecting him. (You do an excellent job of introspection while moving the story forward.) I'm so glad that she's calm about it to, that she smothers any tendancy for drama in favor of just being content with him. I love that she insists they talk and keep that friendship part of their relationship, that she makes him feel what happened so he can heal. Jesse's return is fantastic, because they're so solid and I think he needed to know that she wasn't just biding time. I like that she allows Jesse's misconception because she thinks she's protecting Noah, when the revelation hurts him more than anything Jesse could have done. It's such a statement that much like this whole story what's hidden is uncovered and often messily. I liked Quinn at least trying to be his friend, and that she probably alerted Rachel as to his return to the choir room. It was nice that she got to say she wanted him just as much as he wants her, that for her he's the one not just the prelude as he feels he must be. I like that he got to see she isn't so perfect. EXCELLENT!

A-MAZ-ING, WOW THAT WAS SSSOOOOOOOOO GOOD. HEY I SAY YOU GIVE US SOME MORE OF THIS ANYTIME. PUCKELBERRY ALL THE WAY MAN! AND I LOVED HOW YOU TOOK SUCH A VASTLY DIFFERENT APPROACH INTO PUCK'S HEAD LIKE THAT. MORE PLEASE!

This story is amazing. Thank you for writing it.

That was intense and beautiful. Thanks for writing such a great fic.
| Puckleberry Fan 10/7/11 . chapter 1
Hi! Love this story! And all the other puckleberry-laced stories! This is too beautifully written and I like the different scenarios that you used that could fit into the stories easily. Not many stories actually mention how dense Rachel can be about boys and the fact that communication is essential to all relationships!
Again, LOVED IT! And looking forward to read more!

I love this! The way you write Puck's POV is really just perfect in this context. I like how you intertwined canon and made it work so well with where you wanted to take things. I also love that you barely acknowledged Lauren because I will forever think that was the dumbest approach to a couple storyline ever. You really put us into Puck's head and made me feel what he was going through, it was all so emotional. You did an amazing job of keeping it real, unfortunately I do think that most kids that go through something like this keep it in until they get older and really start to understand it's not their fault. I liked the progression of their relationship and how they just enjoyed being together and hanging out before they became a couple. It felt like the love was really real...so many stories jump to that point but you took us on their journey to get their and made it very believable.
I've been bummed lately because most (still a few left) of the amazing Puckleberry writers have stopped putting out stories and a lot of what's out there isn't nearly as good as it used to be so this was an awesome treat! You are a very talented writer that has the gift to put us in the character's head and I really hope you continue to write more P/R stories, I've given up on the show completely and only have fanfiction for a fix haha.
