I just found this story today and found myself absolutely spellbound! You are able to depict the struggles and tolls of chronic illness with such clarity and poignancy, yet Maria and Georg and their characteristics remain constant throughout. So beautifully written! I'm excited to see what comes next.

Wow! This story is so sad! It’s heartbreaking and almost unbearable to read that after all the awful things Georg & Maria have been through (him losing his wife and not knowing how to cope with the children or life, the torment they both went through because of their love for each other, Elsa’s interference in their relationship, having to run for their lives from the Nazis, having to leave their lovely home and country), that their marriage/love is being torn apart by Maria’s illness and the stress Georg is under from caring for her. And now he’s ill too :( It’s also so depressing to see Maria becoming bitter and lashing out at her poor husband verbally because of the cycle of pain and misery she’s in. It’s understandable and I get that long term illness can change a person’s character, but it’s so grim. I sobbed when she walked out on him and then when she returned to find Georg having a nightmare about the war and falling out of bed and hitting his head because she’d abandoned him. I just wanted Maria’s heart to thaw at that point and wanted her to take him in her arms, give him a huge hug and make things right with him. But alas she’s still at odds with Georg. It’s a well written this story, because it’s a realistic life for many people unfortunately, esp in these times, but it brings me to tears to read about it ending this way for our Georg & Maria and it makes me wonder whether any of them have regrets about getting together all those years ago in the first place. I know they promised to love each other in sickness and in health, but it feels the situation is so dire here that they’re losing sense of who they are and of their love.

a wonderful and classic rendering of the gazebo scene. so glad to have you and your wonderful writing back! a special thank-you for the dining room scene (I always wonder what that dinner must have been like). I adored the way the barely lets herself hope, even when his awkward and nervous discomfort is increasingly apparent - then there is a flicker and finally a flame (love the way you evoked her awakening desire for him). GREAT job.

Such a gorgeous retelling of one of my favourite scenes. Loved the vivid descriptions of Maria’s thoughts and emotions as she navigated that evening through blinding pain to sheer elation. When Georg says the words “I love you” my heart always skips a beat. The way he just blurts out those words is such a contrast to the way he struggles to define his feelings for Elsa as they walked along the lake.
You’ve taken this already-fabulous scene and elevated it to so much more. Thank you!

Wow! That was wonderful. I can see this scene in my head. It is one of my favorites. I love when Georg says "oh my love" I just melt. I hope there will be more.️️

I must be honest - I squealed when I saw that you posted a new story. I was worried that after "If I loose myself" your break would be much longer, especially if you're working on your Master's. I am so happy to see that you're back in the fandom, with a new story.

As for the first chapter, I am as always enchanted by your writing. You can paint beautiful scenes with words, capture and convey emotions with a lot of accuracy. However there is one thing that is nagging at the back of my head - the story is not marked as completed and the summary is rather... hazy. Although this first chapter was beautifully written, it showed us a scene we know from the movie, giving no hints about the plot. I wonder what this story will be about. Knowing your writing I guess you'll be concentrating on feelings but I am looking forward to finding out whet adventures you planned for Maria and the Von Trapp family.

Thank you for devoting your time and energy to this story. I am looking forward to reading the upcoming chapters. Take care!
