This is one of the best across the universe fanfics I've read! You captured all the characters personalities great, and didn't make them do things they really wouldn't do.
Plus, I agree that Lucy's family would not be happy that she was engaged to Jude. Nice touch.

I really enjoyed this. I think you pulled the continuation of there relationship together. I wanted to make a note that there is an Across the Universe section in Movies now, if you wanted to move it over to that category.

great! i loved it. i suppose there is one little continuity thing of there not being cds at the time, but whatever, we get the idea and it's a sweet one.

Wah. I'm jealous. Everything you write comes out right.

That was incredibly sweet and captured of the magic of Jude and Lucy. Seriously, although they're fictional characters, they make me want to believe in love.
I loved all the sections, and my favorite line was: "And I couldn't figure out why, of all people, I wanted to talk to you."
Or when you described what happened right after the rooftop scene, when they were holding each other .

Ah...that was refreshing. The whole movie was refreshing, and you really captured its essence in this. Nice work!

One quick comment: You might want to add a little disclaimer saying that the title of this story comes from a line from the poem "Hope" by Emily Dickinson, so that people don't think you are trying to take credit for her work.

Lovely! Great story!

I really enjoyed how it was split up into five parts, so I shall review each section individually. :) *squee*
1.) Reunion- Great job playing out thier reunion. It was very emotional and you expressed everything so nicely.
2.) Nice job on this section. The part where Jude said he knew he loved Lucy from the first shag was hilarious. I snorted in laughter. (If you can imagine that. lol) And the fact that he recovered from this joke with something serious, was just wonderful.
3.)Of all the sections in this story, this one was definitely my favorite. Lucy talking it out with her mother. I'm glad that she wasn't easily swayed by her motives, and was completely sure that she was in love with Jude. *wipes tears*
4.) I thought it was a nice description of the wedding. I liked the insert of Lucy in the Sky (with diamonds) *gotta love that song* Jude drawing the ring and putting it in the locket was a wonderful. I dont know if you did this on purpose, but it shows that Jude had two loves, Lucy and drawing...they way that he drew it and put it in the locket. :)
5.) Of course...this was my second favorite. I adored the way you brought everything, and everyone into a full circle. Jude and Lucy decided to have a child, especiallyl Lucy, who never wanted kids.
Max setting up boot camp is adorable. :P
"That was then; that was Daniel and Massachusetts and high-waist plaited skirts. She can see so much more than a carbon copy in her daughter's face- she can see rooftops and rallies, planes and sketches and rotting wood and walls turned into art.
Jude says she has her mothers eyes. And maybe she does; but then she smiles, and Lucy knows she will have her father's mouth."
BEST ENDING! You are an amazing author. Continue writing amazing stories!
My one word of advice would be to make sure that your titles and summaries are up to par with your writing. You are an amazing writer, there's no doubt about that, but the lack of Capitalized title, and weak summary almost made me not want to read this, thinking that it would be unedited and sloppy.
Of course, I was wrong...but just so you know.
I look forward to reading your stories.
XOXO I LOVE YOU!

aww i loved it! the fact that they named their daughter eleanor (which happens to be my fave beatles song) just made me melt...
the only thing i could say is that considering eleanor was probably born in the early seventies, they didnt have CDs yet...
