VanessaHolliday chapter 18 . 1/1
WOW! Just finished reading the entire wonderfully bittersweet gut-wrenching finale to S&R's story in one sitting with tears running down my eyes through most of it (last few chapters SOBBING). Beautifully written. Heart broken that at the time of Bonnie/Melanie's deaths, and going forward, Rhett rejected any chance at redemption, forgiving himself, asking S for forgiveness, love...until his deathbed). Instead he CHOSE once again to run away, & to fall into the empty, self-destructive, dissolute lifestyle that caused his demise). Was this his punishment on himself & Scarlett for their unworthiness? They could have had many happy years together, instead of a few sad weeks *sigh*

I just reread this and, my God - what a story. Tearjerker indeed, in the very best of ways. And it's not just that you're a master at describing human emotions, that both Scarlett and Rhett were very much in character and that your writing style is simply gorgeous - lush yet simple - there's something else to this story I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe it's because it's so tragic, a tale of missed chances and heartbreak, of fate and survival. Maybe it's because it's so realistic. Perhaps their marriage was truly broken and there was no chance for them, only Scarlett did not realise it even if Rhett did. I especially appreciated the way you described his lingering despair over Bonnie's untimely death, I really think that was his breaking point and he never really got over it. Anyway, this story was moving, inspiring, truly beautiful, in short: splendid work.

Till the last sentence, I was holding on to hope that this was a nightmare, and either rhett or scarlett would wake up and reconcile. lol of course i knew that was impossible. You enjoy realism too much to make a happy ending. I would have loved for you to have rekindled some of Rhett's love for her, but I admit it made more sense that it would only be in the form of...fondness, as he said. This was such a tragic story. You now have to make up for it, if you ever come back to ff and finish Springtime in Savannah...not that that story seems any happier...

Well, this is depressing. I wish you put a little more of Scarlett's life in this story. Rhett's life is too hard on my S&R heart...

It's hard to be so furious at Rhett when he's so weak and pleading.
Firth'sDarcy chapter 8 . 12/15/2012
My heart genuinely broke while reading about Scarlett's "box". The poor woman is desperately holding on. It's so tragic.
Firth'sDarcy chapter 9 . 12/15/2012
Dammit! stop this! this is too hard for me! But your writing is brilliant! Rhett is such an asshole. I don't care about what he said to Scarlett about him not wanting her to 'find out', he bought Celine specifically to rub it in her face. Ugh. I hated him so much in this chapter. And I was always just about to start crying...poor Scarlett.

I'm loving the Dan-Scarlett relationship. I actually wish they'd gotten together...
Firth'sDarcy chapter 7 . 12/15/2012
Why would Rhett want to throw Celine in Scarlett's face? Argh, it always annoys me how the man can act like a child even though he's nearly 20 years Scarlett's senior.
Firth'sDarcy chapter 5 . 12/15/2012
I wonder if the length of their estrangement was a result of the misunderstanding with the Wilson character?
Firth'sDarcy chapter 4 . 12/15/2012
I'm always just on the edge of bursting into tears while reading this fic...and I've always hated Rhett's coldness.
Firth'sDarcy chapter 3 . 12/15/2012
I...don't think I can handle reading this fic, since I know that it's going to end with Rhett dying, and I've already teared up twice over the last three chapters...
Firth'sDarcy chapter 2 . 12/15/2012
It's so tragic watching Scarlett fall apart like that. And even more depressing that Rhett left her for close to 30 years...
