I liked this, especially how you had Kirsten step in and be Ryan's lifeline. Well done.

Ah, the Kirsten and Ryan conection, love that she's the one that breaks through to him. Keep the angst going...

One of the best post-finale fic I've read. It hit the right amount of angst. I really like your style of writing. I liked your descriptions of the scene at the beginning and the focus on Ryan. I liked the way Kirsten got through to him and the way he was clinging on to her.

And I thought the last paragraph was excellent!

This is amazing. I definitely sense an individuality from the other season 3 finale stories. You just have that magical touch. Keep up the awesome work!

You did a great job writing Ryan's actions and feelings. Good chapter and I hope you continue soon:-)

I'm glad to see you writing again and giving us something from Ryan's perspective somewhat. I was wondering what your take would be on an event that would tap so deeply into all of his ingrained insecurities and really cut to the heart of what has undermined him his whole life, not just in Newport. The poor kid has been made to believe he has no value unless it is to make sure that others are taken care of at his own expense- that makes him completely inconsquential and irrelevant. For someone who is a giver, a caretaker, a fixer and a pleaser and appeaser to be unable to alter the outcome of an irreversible event and see it in the larger context of what he believes is the pain and disruption he has brought to the Cohens' lives, living with survivor's guilt would be almost unfathomable. He's already taken the blame for everything in the Atwood household and silently for everything in the Cohen household- at least since his arrival. And it's all gone unnoticed.

I'm curious to see how you continue with portraying a detached and lost Ryan who really is like a wounded animal trying to lash out as he attempts to redirect his feelings inward. Having Kirsten as the one to connect and maintain that tangible bond with him is the ultimate irony, as you note, since she was the first in Newport to misjudge, label and reject him. The one that was scared of him is now frightened for him and the mother who wanted to protect her son from the threats he posed now encircles and shelters him from the outside.
