I really love this story! It's the second time i read it and i just love how you captured all these emotions hidden in Hyde's mind. And the end, wow! Although I like to imagine them both getting together after the end of the show, I guess that this would be the most appropriate reaction from Jackie after everything he did to her. She grew a lot during the series, and although she is love personified, she is also pride, and with this ending she finally shows she have learnt how to not smash her pride anymore. Hope you keep writing!

I could not stop reading.. so sad now I think I need a pick me up! But it was a very beautiful story nonetheless.

This story has one of the most moving, heart wrenching and totally realistic endings I've read in a fic. The chapter, especially the last paragraph, really do make the story - great storytelling! I agree with a previous reviewer that this ending is how their story would go in real life. As much as we all wanted those two crazy kids to work it out, just too much damage was done for anything more to happen between them... at least by the end of the show. (Ugh, do I actually agree with the Season 8 writers on one point? Noooo.) Give Jackie and Hyde a few years, and a few experiences with other people, and then... maybe!
Another line that stuck out to me was Hyde's own awareness of how he'd always held himself back from Jackie, keeping himself a little out of reach even while they were together, and how that was ultimately what screwed him over. This also feels so true to life. :(
Bravo, thanks for posting this fic!

Love your re-working of the A New Hope opening text :D

Heartbreaking! A beautiful ending and one that should have been in the show, even though I would've liked to see them get together again. If this were real life, this is how it would've gone down. Sniff sniff.

Despite the sad ending, this was a very enjoyable story. I love the tension throughout, the exploration of Hyde's insecurity. I've also thought Hyde may have felt a lot of anger about Jackie going back to Kelso - especially after "Jackie Bags Hyde," and that this is what sown his paranoia about J/K during their own relationship
The last paragraph totally *makes* the story:
Slowly, he rose from the couch and pulled her small frame into his arms. For one moment, he was several years younger, holding onto Kelso's girl, their whole future ahead of them. In the next, he was older, letting go of Fez's woman, and accepting that their 'future' was now in the past. One last, lingering squeeze, and he released her into a world that didn't include him and to a man he could never be.
Terribly sad but worded so well. Definitely resonates through all of the previous chapters. Wonderful.

I loved seeing the series through Hyde's eyes! This was so brilliant. Making it about him and his trust issues and his insecurities about Kelso - just fantastic! I wish it could have had a happier ending, but you're right - the way the show set them up, it would not be possible for them to get back together. Great fic!

As an avid Clapton fan I adored this!
Even the sad ending...
| CatarinaJones chapter 8 . 4/30/2009
That was beautiful! I didn't even mind the sad ending...much...and that's saying a lot coming from me! I can't wait to read more of your stories and I am eagerly awaiting an update for 'Hyde Bags Jackie.' Keep up the good work!

| nicodemusfleur chapter 8 . 2/11/2009
That was horribly sad...a really well written story, but I'm pretending that eventually they got together, because this ending was depressing. But great story!

This was really good but I think it would've been even better if there was some insight with the episodes where Hyde actually tries to get Kelso caught cheating! I think those episodes really reveal his motives and show that Jackie wasn't just another girl to him because I was surprised that that was her reason for turning him away in JBH! It's fine that she was trying to protect herself but I think she messed up too by not realizing Hyde was just doing the same thing!
The part about Hyde failing at the little things was really ironic to me. It fits of course, because S8 was completely upside down, but back during their relationship, Hyde's feelings were always expressed by the little things... shaving the beard, the Zeppelin t-shirt, etc. I just thought it was interesting to include that! Good job!
