this is beautiful and heartbreaking and tragic and ohmygod i can't stop crying.

favorite line?

Then Neil’s maid, young and thin and blond, is slicing tomatoes at the counter and Julie says, “Honestly, Marissa, fix your posture.” Startled, the maid slips and cuts her hand and Julie screams as her daughter bleeds.

and the floodgates open.

i am like this with every. single. one of your oc stories.

truly gifted.

You put alot of pain into your words, which makes the story so much more tragic and beautiful.

theres really no other way to say this is a really good story.

This is very good, I like your style a lot. It's painful to read, but a wonderful vision of the world that Marissa's left behind.

This is powerful, powerful writing. I like how you kept a somber tone, but kept people very in character. I guess I've just read too many fics where Ryan starts bawling at Marissa's funeral. I just like the little details and quirks in everyone's personalities. Very, very good.

WOW - that was beautiful, and powerful; a nice take on the season finale. I don't often venture into O.C. land, but when I do, I'm always hunting for word art like this. I really wanted to pick my favorite perspective, and I couldn't, because you nailed every character down pat. I like Summer refusing to wear black, the permanent bloodstains on Julie's floor, why Seth burns his comics, the line about Kirsten missing more than the punchline... and the opening and closing lines are very well said. It's being added to my favorites in hopes others follow the link, and being printed off for my story binder because it's the kind of thing I'll read multiple times.

This wasn't overly emotional I didn't think and yet it was inexplicably powerful and overwhelming, especially the Seth and Sandy focuses. I also really liked the last line for Kirstin; that she missed more than the punchline - I think that mostly underlines the entire series. Very moving stuff and well written. It could be tidied up in one or two places but a good job all round.

It is true what they say: the simple things in life are often the best. This is one of those. Sublime, yet poignant, it is beautifully written with only a few typos to annoy. But the cleverness lies in the structure, the beginning that echoes at the end, bringing us full circle. I loved it and I thank you.

That was great. So simple and perfect. I love the way you used the same style for each of the characters and did not make their situations overly dramatic, just normal things that changed in the wake of a tragic death. I also like that you put Ryan's segment in the middle. In all post finale fics like this that tap on how all the characters are grieving, Ryan is usually saved for last. It was a nice change. Beautiful job, can't wait to see more from you.
