|Reviews for Last Goodbye : Part 3 of Lights and Sounds|

I love this trilogy. I really do. And I think you kept true to Alex's character (post jealous Alex) and I think that's what's pissing me off. I can't imagine comforting someone like that, after all the pain Marissa put Alex through, it just seems too ...unjust. I honestly don't think I could've gone back to someone like Marissa, if I were Alex.
You can only get kicked so many times until you realize it hurts. And people may say if you love somebody you'll always be there for them, but this was just down right selfish of Marissa.
Though really, Ryan was a friend of Alex's, and it's hard to keep that in mind with everything, but the very first chapter clearly showed how close the two had once been. As a friend I would've came, but for Marissa? Never. Maybe that's just me, and really I've never experienced something quite like this before in my life, so I can't say for certain, but I'm darn right close. I mean, Marissa blunt out said, "I don't love you. Leave."
And after they exchanged the dreaded four words, Marissa made up the excuse that it was just 'fucking', just. It makes me so angry. What's even worse is, this would've actually happened. If O.C had followed this plot, Alex would've been left out in the curve only to keep chasing after Marissa. I think that's the saddest part here. The reality of it.
Another I really found interesting was how you kept Ryan, Ryan. He wasn't some asshole that you plotted to kill just for fan-service, he was Ryan Atwood. An honest man, a loving husband, and a good father. It actually makes his death more significant than it should, considering that you are writing for Malex shippers. But I think you made a bang-up decision.
As for Marissa, I can't say much other than: you defined Marissa Cooper like a dictionary. It was everything from careless remarks to forcing herself to love Ryan. Well, not really forcing but staying with Ryan out of the principle of it.
I was really hoping for some revenge on Alex's half. She barely made a nic with the whole 'Rachel's my girlfriend', seeing as she was mooning full-throttle over Marissa. So, really, a moot point. I probably sound like a broken-record with my anti-Marissa rants, but I just can't wrap my head around it. It's so goddamn heart-breaking.
You should publish this with original characters, it'll do for an amazing book.
Other than that, gread job and thank you fo the great read.

I loved the idea of Alex looking after and holding Kate, somehow it was just so family like and happy. It wasn't hard to imagine little Kate as Katie (Mischa's character in Once and Again) and that made it even more enjoyable.
Im guessing no part 4? Although I'd love to read about them raising a family together

Wonderful series. One of my favorites. Great job, and I'm so happy there was a happy ending. I usually leave lengthy reviews but I think if I did I'd just be repeatedly praising the story so I'll stop here. I look forward to seeing more from you.

that was very good. The range of emotion and the descriptions were very good. Also I liked how the hospital was detailed because it is a terrible place to be, even if its a check up, they're terrible. There's a death cab for cutie song lyric that goes-there's no comfort in the waiting room. I thought that fit well with it and I'm obviously glad Alex stayed around and helped Marissa through her pain. Also was Ashton Marissa and Ryan's baby, because I would assume so. Overall that was really good.

Wow. Sad, sad story. I'm not used to all this griev in Malex ficts, but its surprisingly good. I love this fict. Read all three parts yesterday, one after the other. Probably the best Malex fict I've ever read (and the most real one too). Please update, I so want to read more.
