Aww.. wow. Yeah okay.. that was definitely a bit of a blow to the heart. I didn't cry, but now I have a solid lump in my chest. Seriously though, it was a beautiful little piece and I really enjoyed it :)

What a great idea for a story! It really shows where Will's anger comes from. Beautifully written!

Oh! *Sniffs twice, grabs tissue and begins to sob.* It was so sweet ans sad... I really could just see it all. Sniff, sniff, you were right about the tissue warning. I was looking for a favourite line, but if I was going to comment all my favourite lines I'd have to put the entire story here. :)

I am finally reviewing...terrible person that I am. :D
Anyway, I really like this story. Really, really like this story. I was a bit shocked at the loss of Dan's hand, and how it was brushed off so quickly...and yet he did it. (Provides a valid comparison between Alan and Dan, eh? Ahem.)
I have one quibble, and it's not a big one: your summary. It uses "then" when it should be "than." Eeyursh, I feel kind of bad saying this, so please know! I'm not trying to be mean here...I just notice things like that...
In the meantime, I miss you terribly... God bless!

Well you most definitely have something to be proud of in this story. I can say that I never really pondered how much Dan taking the punishment for Will and Luke would've affected him but in the fic you absolutely nailed it with pure raw emotion. I loved how you incorporated Will chopping wood with flash backs...very effective. All in all great writing and I really enjoyed reading this (even if it was sad as all hell). Loved it!

My own throat feels tight from emotion.
Dan's hand being removed is always known as a great sacrifice but we never understood the pain of him having to take the punishment from Will. The topic that's always been skimmed over has come to life by you - and you put it into such perspective that it truly broke my heart.
Dan holding Will's hands in his one only grasp - as if his son is every hope united.
That killed me.
This is part of Will's drive to help the poor and I applaud you, weeping, for portraying it so beautifully.
Keep writing :)
