I loved your fanfic. It was lovely. Definitely well-written. I would like to commend your use of a different point of view. It made the story all the more interesting.

Loved it, it was very sweet and sad.

I love a well-written Luke POV and this most certainly counts as one. It's real and Luke's acceptance of the way things are is so bittersweet it hurts.

Your lovely review reminded me that I was going to finish reading the rest of your stories; thank you. This was beautiful. Definitely one of the best Luke POV stories out there. It makes me so sad (then I remember that they're together now and I smile again) because I'm 100% sure that this is exactly how he felt when she was dating *him*. There's a quote that's something like, "The hardest thing to do is to watch the one you love, love someone else." You do a brilliant job of packing a whole lot of punch into a small amount of space - thanks for writing this. A personal favorite: "You’ve scripted it so completely and never do you let yourself dream that it ends happily." Tear.

Thank God for Favorites pages, otherwise I would never have discovered this gem. Beautifully written, extremely in-character, and just heartbreaking. Definitely one of the best one-parters I've ever read.

A beautifully written character piece.
| innie chapter 1 . 6/4/2004
Wow, what a gorgeous story! I like that the parentheses are things Luke can't quite admit, even to himself. Nice touch.
| CIAChick chapter 1 . 6/3/2004
"because you have all the other, all the best, parts of her. And that’s enough. (For now.)"
Aww gorgeous way to end it. Lovely angst overall. Bravo! I hope your muse prods you to write something a little longer, but for now I've enjoyed this!
| UniquelyMe chapter 1 . 6/3/2004
The first person POV really worked for this story. You’ve captured Luke perfectly. Moreover, you’ve captured Lorelai perfectly from Luke’s POV. I loved the phrases in brackets… They’re almost like secret whispers to the audience. A great effect. What a beautiful ending. A great way to cap an amazing story.
Some favourite lines:
“She reads you better than anyone you’ve ever known and it wrecks you that maybe she’s known all along.
| Lula Bo chapter 1 . 6/3/2004
Ah! You're killing me with the lovely and the sad! It's beautiful-outstanding.
| Erin Kaye Hashet chapter 1 . 5/18/2004
Wonderful. Very elegant, believable prose, and you get inside Luke's mind so well. I hope you write more than just fanfic!
| Copperboom chapter 1 . 3/31/2004
Wow! So sad, but just right. It's an interesting take on Luke's motivation and feelings about his relationship with Lorelai. The second person voice is different, but it adds a layer of distance, kind of the way Luke keeps his feelings at arms-length, so it works well.
