This hurts so much, that I really can’t tell if I like it. I love it. But I don’t know if I like it.

I'm crying so hard.

God, no matter how many times I read this my chest constricts and feel like I can't breathe.
You leave me breathless.

Once I realized this was going to hurt a little bit, I didn't want to like it. However, you did a wonderful job. I hardly noticed the scab of him dying being ripped off. And I didn't heave at the thought of *her*. So you did good. (Grins)

My dear Violet,
After reading this through three times solid, I must confess that I was rendered utterly speechless. It really is not often that I stumble upon a fic which compells me to hit the blue button any more, but I feel that I have to let you know how much I enjoyed "Firsts And Lasts".
I was not expecting to be as impressed with such a small fic as I ultimately was. You took me through romantic joy through to resigned dispair within merely a couple of hundred words, and this proves that the old reassuring bedroom phrase is, in some cases, very true - size doesn't matter, it's what you do with it that counts.
"Firsts And Lasts" is a powerfully emotional fic, rich in feeling, vocabulary and style. My heartiest congratulations to you, Violet, and sincere thanks - for "Firsts And Lasts" was such a sheer delight to read.
Thank you! xx

Another amazing work of yours. I can't get over how much I love your work, really. Just love it.

WHAT happened was clear enough, but I didn't understand WHEN it was happening. Well, the last few were apparent, however, the first several were obscure. Were they in school, or was it during a summer before they graduated, or had they already graduated and bought a flat together, or...something else? Maybe you intended for it to be ambiguous, but it was definitely frustrating to be confused.

The way you write is always 'something'.
So worth reading !

Spare and bittersweet. Says all it needs to without wasting words. I also like the formatting and the "theme and variations" structure.

AWW. Absolutely wonderful story.
"After, in the quiet, pre-dawn light, he didn’t mean to cry, just like he didn’t mean to whisper silly, child-like things – I love you like a fever and I missed you like the sky – into Remus’s skin."
"And then one day he said them, and it hurt like fire. The next time he said them, it hurt a little less. The last time he said them, he even meant them."
GAH. Heart-rending. I love it.
