|Reviews for Second Verse|
| Iscah McKrae chapter 1 . 6/15/2012
Just read all 4 chapters and I am quite overwhelmed. It's an amazing, wonderful story, and I'm so very sad that it looks like it will never be finished, since it was last updated 8 years ago. Generally speaking, I can't stand stories where one of my best-beloved characters die...particularly where their death is the premise. This, though...had such depth and rich characterization, such wonderful writing, I can't help but love it...even though it's excruciating. I actually had to take a break after Chapter 3. I'm not accustomed to crying that hard over one scene. I guess it is partly because in my head canon Jess was "trained" not to cry as a kid...very abusively...so anything that actually breaks him down into tears (which I've never seen portrayed that realistically, by the way) absolutely guts me. But ending that scene with Luke telling Lorelai what a good mom she is, and her replying: "I was." That just broke me. I was sobbing. Bless you for having Jess push Stella in the lake so soon after that! It cured me. Extremely cathartic! :D
I LOVE both Stella and Julia, and I cannot express just HOW MUCH I love the relationship between Jess and each of his daughters... It's amazing. Everything about this story is so very REAL. If you're ever inspired to write more...I would be supremely grateful!
I also loved seeing Richard Gilmore stumped by a six-year-old. That scene was...just perfect.
Oh...and learning that Andrew willed the bookstore to Rory, and then... *gulp* ...got me all choked up again.
More...please oh please, more! (Must go read everything else in the Gilmoreverse you've written!)
Also, if you would deign to read my stories and tell me how to improve them, I'd be honored!

WHOA! I REALLY LIKE THIS STORY! I realized that this was written a while ago, but I really wish there was some way that you could continue it. This was the first time that I have cried while reading fanfiction. I love Jess's relationship with Stella!

I like how you portrayed Jess's relationship with his daughters, he seems to be handling them as best as he can. The dialogue is excellent and so are the original characters.
Bye, smile :-)

Hey there... ive been reading this since chapter one but im not sure that i left a review. Anyways i love this story so far, i love that of all people Dean's kid would turn out most like Jess, and his daughter has that rough side, but yet shes still a good kid because of her mom, and Lane's son, i love the name sid, and the little julia... shes so cute. Anyways i think you have something great going on here... and you write the characters well, i cant wait for more...

I love the character development in the story. I can't wait to see how the story progresses, and to see Stella know more about her parents' lives, and about Rory.
Hope to see an update soon! Good job!

Jess should have died instead of Rory
| punkcatwitissues chapter 4 . 4/11/2004
Jess' version of Rapunzel definately was the highlight of this story... reminds me of this "politically correct fairy tales" book I bought once as a joke... and have I mentioned that I love Sid? Cause I do!
| Poodernite chapter 3 . 4/10/2004
Very interesting story. I like all the original characters you've created. Can't wait for more.
