I first read this story a long time ago, in 2007, when you had originally posted it. I had loved it dearly and it left a lasting impact on the younger version of myself about how abuse, love and family can kind of all become a jumbled up mess sometimes. Now here I am, seven years later, having just been reminded of this story fleetingly by something totally unrelated. I remembered the title immediately, and Googled like crazy, hoping that you hadn't deleted it. I am so thankful you did not. I've just now finished rereading this - all in the span of two hours - and I found myself in love with the story all over again. Your characterization is spot on, the emotion portrayed in each person's movements or words is so poignant. This made me cry, it made me feel joy, and most of all, it made me hopeful. I always remember this as being one the best endings to a story I've ever read, and now I can quite frankly say it was one of the best Outsiders fan fictions of all time (and I have read MANY). Thanks for keeping this up on the site, and allowing readers access to your wonderful work. Best wishes.

I read this once, a very long time ago, in 2007 when you originally posted it. I remember being very moved by it. I was randomly reminded of it today, in a passing conversation about something or other, and immediately googled it up, praying it hadn't been deleted. I am so glad it wasn't. I reread this whole thing in less than two hours today, and feel a familiar emotion having finished it. This is one of the best stories on this site for me, the writing is utterly captivating and the emotions are so real. You handled the subject matter very well, and left us readers with a sense of hope. Thanks for writing this, and bringing some wonderful nostalgia to the days I was obsessed with these characters, so many years later.

I enjoyed this. It was interesting and kept me captivated, especially since Soda's return wasn't just a quick fix to the problem and it was suddenly like nothing ever happened. I also liked (and hated) that even though Darry was hurting Ponyboy, you couldn't really hate him because you understood his motivations, yet at the same time felt for Pony and just hoped he could get out of there. It was quite different from the usual complete-monster-no-sympathy stories I usually read (and write). I also loved how Ponyboy compared his situation to a war and how he came out changed, the way most soldiers would from a war. All in all it was a great story, definitely one of my favorites.
