| wishfulthinking123 chapter 1 . 7/8
Speechless. It is a brutal but honest depiction of domestic violence, and I'm not sure I would have been happy with a 'happy ending.' Most victims don't get a happy ending and it is tragic. Anything other than that ending would have felt hollow, almost like a lie. Yet so many things could change if people just talked about it more, it would really make a difference to people struggling with guilt and loneliness.
Everything would have changed if Rory and Jess had just spoken out. It is kind of ironic when you consider how Rory is a reporter and a writer. Communication should be her strong point. But everyone loses their voice from time to time, and it can be hard to find it. I love how you juxtaposed that against Jess, and his inability to speak to anyone other than Rory.
It was also particularly unbearable, but unfailingly honest, when her obituary was reduced to the wife of a famous man. Says a lot about society really...women's voices can be drowned out. I wish they had found their voices in time but as I said, most victims don't.
Great story and really well-written. It has an amazing emotional impact and I'm sure it will resonate with other readers.

Oh my god. I've read almost all of your stories (in exception to like 3) and I have to say that you are amazing. I picked this one to write that because it was my favorite. It made me cry. The pain Jess must of felt.
I also love the way you have explored Jess. Different sides of him. Changing your ideas about him as you yourself grew as a writer. I don't know what you're doing now, but I'll just say that what you did here was fantastic.
