Oh, I love this. Really, really do. Thanks for writing this, thanks for taking your time to write this lovely story, thanks for writing an amazing character such as Leon, I love him too. The ending was just perfect, just what I expected for all the characters, and I'll be reading the sequel as soon as possible.

OMG it was so beautiful :( It wasn't sh*tty...just beautiful, perfect, so deep and cheesy and you made me fangirl almost in the same way I did the first time I saw Riley and Ellie's kiss...
Thank you for writing this. Thanks so much 3 Now I don't want to read another fanfics because this...this one is just great in so many ways!
-Sorry about my English and I'll be waiting ansiously for the sequel-

I had kitty's theme from the movie the painted veil playing in the background whilst reading the end of this chapter. I can not even describe how I felt when reading the last few words...

Bravo Taco, bravo! Thank you for writing this fantastic story. It was a great read! Grammatically, and in terms of plot. I wish you well in your future endeavors. Thank you again for sharing this amazing peace of fanfiction.

I don't buy that you're 14/15. That's just not possible. For your age, this quality of writing is indescribably good. Please write an original book. I'd line up at the bookstore behind a few hundred fans.

This was amazing!

I suddenly missed Sarah so much while reading this. Like, a lot. Like, pouting at the thought of her. That song was in American Horror Story! Ah, that was so cute!
God, the lie is ripping them apart.
This was so amazing. I was listening to Fly On and God, I thought I could hold out. And then the last part, I was just crying. I'm still crying, but happy crying with just happy watery eyes and a swelling heart. So, on to the sequel. Thanks for writing this, beautiful.

God, this was heart breaking. Riley's frustration and guilt and confusion was perfectly elicited, and JOel's remorse, God, that was so beautiful. I wonder if Joel'll tell her, I want Ellie to understand so much, but I want her to go ape shit. But, I guess she's already accepting is, but, also completely not, augh, it's so awesomely done.
Write a Walking Dead fanfic. I need that from you. Like, now.
Awesome work, Taco!
| Cyn-Gez chapter 28 . 5/4/2015
This was a beautiful, touching, and amazing story. It perfectly captures the essence of each character and builds from them into a wonderful story. I cant wait for the sequel but for I must sleep considering this just stole 7 hours of my life away from me when I was supposed to be sleeping.

I love you, Joel.
I so completely love this. You did so well. Just, I love all of this!
Poor Bill, indeed. Gosh, that was devastating.

I knew he saw them! HAHA I literally love Leon.
"Do it more" ? ! LEON! HA! XD
I melt a little every time he calls her kiddo. You've captured their bond so perfectly. I mean, I ship Riley and Ellie totally. But I friend, no, family-ship Joel and Ellie so much.
That was really a great chapter. Auh! Adorable xxx
| thewalkerinme chapter 24 . 5/1/2015
Okay, Joel. I love you. Him considering having to give Ellie the "gay talk" is just about the most beautiful thing I've ever read. Ever. Ever. Ever. I'm metling.

Swear to Holy Fuck. Leon dies, I riot.
Nonononononono. Ohfuck. I thought... I was dumb, I saw the word bit, ahead, and... oh, Leon, you idiot! I thought you were infected! Dickweed!
Fuuuck! Go! This is heart pumping! Gyah!
Shut the front door! Shut that front door in that momma bear's fucking face, with its paws and claws, go die, bear! You... BEAR!
Yay! That was so awesome! X

"And I fell in love with her for a second time." Love, love, love this. Oh dear, this is purity.
Tommy, shit, fuck, all that, even just saying about how that was always how it was when he was a kid, shit, that was so believable!
Alright, girls, enough chit chat... go home.. be happy... roll around like happy little kittens trapped in a ball of twine :) I'm all warm and fuzzy and so bloody happy that they are together again!
Well. Fucking. Done.

I feel like I need a T-shirt that says "If Leon died we riot"
Pinch of trust. Oh, dear, Ellie. ignorance is bliss, unfortunately for you, you're no ignorant young lady.
"It hit her with more force when she devastatingly loved him back."
I can't tell you what that did to me. I hat to take a break to get my breathing back to normal. Goddamn.
That word still hit me like a tonne of bricks. Like everything had paused and it was just her voice, finalising the whole story. But no, FanFiction does not allow such codas. FanFiction lets the story live on. :D
I feel like crying. I just do, okay? God, this is so beautiful. I love Ellie's reaction as she rots through her new house, it's so amazing. This IS the sequel. IT IS!
who is this assaulter...?
go, Ellie! You got this!
Blue! ELECTRIC BLUE! FUUUUUUUUUUCK!
i'm not even here.
see? gone. i'm gone, Taco. erased from existence.
You don't have to do this.
Taco, you don't have to do this. You don't have to just rip my whole body from my heart, let my corps hang from your arm while you clutch the fucking organ in your other fist, still beating, still trying.
That was amazing.
