Loved the delicasy with which you portrayed Emmett and Rosalie's deepening relationship. Your Rosalie emerged as so much more than the two dimensional, vain, pretty girl from the books. Her tentativeness, and Emmett's curiosity about the pain he sensed in her - coupled with his troubled incomprehension - made their courtship in the early chapters seem like an old fashioned dance, courtly and slightly awkward by today's standards, but beautiful to watch.
"She nodded, closing her eyes. It was hard, remembering that some people did this out of love and not evil. She reminded herself that he kissed her like that because he loved her, and when she ashed him to stop, he did.
The stopping made all the difference."
I haven't read many stories that dealt with the after effects of Rosalie's rape. You did it marvelously well, giving readers a much better understanding of why Rosalie loves Emmett so much. His approval of her 'unconventional therapy' method was another great way to bind those two together.
The best part of all for me was the gentle humor employed. You can practically feel the tenderness in lines like:
"Emmett felt a duty to this city girl, the one who was bred to be the little lady that would earn a wonderful marriage and hadn't had dirt under her fingernails in ages. He wanted to see grass stains on her knees and leaves in her hair."
Her tiny smile after Emmett got her to dive into the leaves made his efforts so worth while. You've a great sense of pacing, developing their relationship believably. Emmett's feelings smack of true love, of wanting the absolute best for the other person. So did Rosalie's, though her 'I'm not worthy of him' attitude just about broke my heart, I believed her sincerity. You've also got a gift for articulating the morals and sensibilities of the past.

I thank you so much for writing a story about Rosalie and Emmett. (My personal favorite, if you can't tell by all of my fanfics... hahaha)

You know, it's such a shame that only 54 people felt the need to review, because I think this story deserves much better.
You are really good. I felt so drawn into this tale, I couldn't even think to stop reading.
I love how you portrayed the characters. All of them, not just Rose and Emmett, but especially them of course. They are so deep, much deeper than most people give them credit for.
Thank you, you really made my evening.

Poor Rosalie having to deal with all that Royce had done to her on her wedding night. Great chapter, it was sweet knowing Emmett would always protect her.
