Pindrath chapter 30 . 12/24/2023
Thank you for the pain, it was very much worth it. 10/10.
meerkatman22 chapter 30 . 11/12/2023
I don't know how to feel about both Cardin and Mama Schnee turning out to be not-terrible people... so I'll just select an emotion: appreciative. It's nice to see people get redeemed, even if it's so blatantly improbable that it might as well be impossible.
Great story, as ever. Standard compliments for beautiful dialogue, slightly less compliments for editing(there were more typos than usual in this story, but your author's notes let me know that they were caused by excitement, so maybe I won't take any points off after all. Hard to fault genuine enthusiasm.)
And as always, thank you. Thank you for writing, and continuing to write, such wonderful stories for us. I've never been good at poetic lines, so I'll just give you some sincere gratitude. Thank you for taking the time out of so many of your days to make this, and thank you for letting us see it, feel it, and enjoy it.

Kinda surprised she's so willing to revisit the whole marriage idea after only half a year...
Perhaps the massive and continuous rush of dopamine coursing through her veins overpowered what was likely months of dread and anticipation, as well as severe depression and probably actual trauma.
I dunno. It's hard to say which of those things would have more of an effect on one's mind and body, but my money's on the dope.

Respect to Papa Schnee for acknowledging determination when he sees it. I think that's the first time I've ever seen him give Weiss anything that she actually wanted, ever.
It feels weird.. but cool.

Yayyyy, they did it!
Until death don't them part!

Ok... not cool. I'm entirely on board with misery and heartbreak and a bunch of words that don't even come close to describing what you just wrote, but sexual assault crosses at least 5 lines. *That* was legitimately upsetting to read, regardless of how likely it was to happen.

moment of silence for our girl.
meerkatman22 chapter 23 . 11/11/2023
Exquisitely written. And I'm looking forward to seeing how absolutely depressed she'll be for the next few chapters.
(Again, it's not weird if a) it's fiction and b) everyone's doing it. Y'all bloodsuckers love the taste of agony, and so does the author, and so do I. For crying out loud, some guy's birthday wish to the author was to write Weiss being *more sad.*)
meerkatman22 chapter 22 . 11/11/2023
No ma'am, we cannot see. For you see, you artfully and masterfully conceal your agony - in a way that leaves amateur manipulators green with jealousy.
Notice I said amateur, because anyone who was actually attentive would notice that you're big sad.
meerkatman22 chapter 21 . 11/11/2023
We're back on the Agony Express.
I really liked the part where Weiss tells Yang just how much freedom she doesn't have.

On the one hand, don't lie. Lying bad. It no good.
On the other hand, it's understandable that she'd use it as a defense mechanism to prevent Ruby from thinking any less of her, as if there was a nonzero chance of that happening ever at all, but Weiss refuses to know that.
On the first foot, it's great that she immediately resolved to repair the damages she saw that she'd caused, but on the other foot, damn that's some terrible luck.

I won't calculate how many calories she ate in this chapter... ok maybe I will.
800-1000 for dinner, probably 2000-4000 for dessert
Source: dude just trust me
Also, I've noticed that while you're an absolute wizard when it comes to describing things, naming them is an entirely different matter.
Case in point: Vale University, Vale Academy, The Vale Baker, etc.
They get the job done, but at what cost?
meerkatman22 chapter 18 . 11/11/2023
Oof, right in the feels.
As we get closer to 'the big day,' we're confronted more and more with Weiss's blatant depression about the entire thing. It hurts to see how much she's hurting every day, and only the assurance that she'll eventually find a way out of this because you're a sucker for happy endings and so am I is what saves this whole story from being completely depressing.
Also, I wanted to take a moment to appreciate how you never(as far as I remember) leave us on serious cliffhangers. There's almost always a rounded out resolution to every chapter, and there's never been a moment where you end it on something like "And what she saw left her completely shocked, amazed, and horrified. Find out what it was next time on Lizard Sphere X!"
meerkatman22 chapter 17 . 11/11/2023
Girl, walk right back into that apartment and stay with her!
Or be a chump and leave the love of your life while she's injured (because of you, but she'll never admit that).
