It was such a great story until then end. Right then and there, and... BOOM! You just dropped a bomb! How could you do that? You couldn't have settled for something at least mildly happy? How is Misty supposed to live with herself knowing that as soon as she let another person back into her life, they die? Everything else except the ending I loved. The ending was good, it's just not the one I wanted.

| Ashmn chapter 6 . 5/4/2014
Seriously you had to end it like that? *sigh* I am disappoint
| Liquid Nitrous chapter 6 . 4/11/2013
WOAH! Poor Misty! First she blames herself for the death of Brock, and then Ash dies! Your mean lol
| Liquid Nitrous chapter 4 . 4/11/2013
Don't bother replying. Wow. That's sad. Poor Brock. Does stuff like that happen in America? Well, very good chapter.
| Liquid Nitrous chapter 3 . 4/11/2013

| whatdotheydream chapter 6 . 8/12/2012
Well, they're with Brock. As soon as I read the announcement, I was just...They're friends forever, now.

Ack! I'm crying three chapters into the story! Heheh. Good job. :)
| Emperor Serperior chapter 6 . 4/29/2011
Wow...a very sad ending. Good job I guess...
This was a very sad story indeed...
| Emperor Serperior chapter 3 . 4/29/2011
Hmm...I surprised on how emotional this story is so far...
Good job on this chapter.

That twist at the end was the best! I totally did NOT expect that at all! Wow! That was ... (this sounds awful) awesome.
To tell you the truth, this story was REALLY emotional. I mean, it seems like you bottled up the feelings of fifty emo teens and dumped them all over this fic. It was good. Really good.
This story made me laugh. NOT LIKE IN A BAD WAY! Oh goodness I sound messed up now; I meant in the happy parts! I swear, not at the deaths. I laughed at the end, though, mostly at myself, because you REALLY got me there. I didn't expect that ending at all. Whew!
Well, Misty's gonna be suicidal now. Or she can marry Gary. Either or.
Anyways, thanks for writing this! And I'm sorry for sounding so messed up . . . -_-"

I'll review the rest, but I must say:
Misty never liked water that much
Oddest sentence I ever read. I don't mean that in a bad way. :D
| Pokeshipper123 chapter 6 . 10/26/2010
Omfg amazing! So well written. The ending... Omg. Poor Misty. This is one of the best stories and saddest stories I've read. And Misty survived...alone. The symbolism and message was really good... I mean if there is one and I think there is. The way you ended it made sense in a weird way. K I don't even know what I'm trying to say anymore lol but GREAT STORY!

Ha ha ha ha ha! God, you're horrible! Ah... you know, if you had done that a little better, it would have been very poignant. But... Ha! I mean, you obviously made it a sad ending, but by all appearances, you did so not for the story, but FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF SAYING "F* YOU!" TO THE READER! Awesome, simply splendid.
I mean, the story was really good leading up to that point. In fact, if you had just... not put that last paragraph in there, and replaced it with something like "The End" or "Fin" or "That's all, folks!", anything at all, it would have been fantastic. But that ending thing... it changed it, to me, from a romantic drama to a romantic shaedenfreude comedy. It fits, in some sick way, but... it would have been better the other way. And it was so sudden, and so detached from the rest of the story because of the way it was presented, I half expected my computer to play that The Price is Right losing jingle noise at the end. It was too impersonal to be tragic.
Now, if you had described the scene from Misty's perspective, or even had her crying about it the next day, THAT would have been tragic. But presented as a news report, it just wasn't. It was just like a "Oh, looks like a happy ending! Yay! The En... Whoops, guess not! ROFLMAO LOLWTFBBQ!" Kind of thing. Like you just hated the reader, and wanted them to be sad. And that made me laugh. So... Fail. You fail it.
Other than that, though, the writing was excellent. The story was believable, the characters were real, and I really felt for them. So... overall, without that ending bull crap, it would have been one of my favorite stories. With it... no. It was excellent right up to that point, but then you robbed it of all meaning at the last moment by turning what could have been a fantastic story of redemption into a mere melodramatic farce. For shame!
Laughing hysterically and loving your writing,
