And so calm, almost dying. I loved that part, how still she was.

I lost my review for chapter two. But it was somewhere along the lines of I'm leaving my husband for you and I hope you like kids.
And the eye lines?

Okay, so, FatApolloLove was all "read this or I'll kill your mom"
So I did.
And I'm really glad I did, because this is golden.
... and I really like my mom.

I like it when my husband calls it my kitty, nicer than saying pussy.
I like your story. I added it to my favorites.

God I love this. The writing is just- seriously, poetic? lyrical? Perfect?
I'm enjoying the Cullens a lot. Their characterization is fun and you make them so interesting to read about. Also, I have this image of Edward bolting every lunch period and that makes me laugh.
The musical tie ins and lovely poetry just add even more depth to the story. Normally when songs or musical talent is tied into the fic- stories become overally corney and lost in a sea of stereotrypes about music and fame. Here I feel as if you have some knowledge about music and bands- not to mention, you make the fact that their in a band, rich and successful background information that doesn't overpower the characters and who they are. Seriously, I don't needs a list of how many prada and coach brands Rosalie and Alice have (I've actually read a fic like that).
Thank you for posting this, I'd love to read more!

Va-jay-jay! Not sure about hearing it in a song though...
Great story! Hot, musician Edward...sigh...

Ah! Such a tease! That ending was pure torture! Something has to give-either a relationship between them has to start, or they both need to find out who they are really conversing with online.
This story is so delicious and tension-filled and slow-burn and I LOVE it!

Ibb you have rocked me with your amazing writing.
I loved the exchanges between Edward and Bella as well as Debussey an Ordinary Girl. I cant wait to see what happens with both connections. Thanks for the shout to the UU girls.

Your writing is exquisite and poetic and simply beautiful. I love reading every gifted chapter that you write. The story is really good and I love your characters...especially Edward and Bella!

I agree with Rosalie. Cunt is def. my favorite anatomical euphemism. Although I did enjoy my mom calling my ex a pussy to his face every time she saw him. Just found your story and I love it :)

ahh. another leather jacket wearing edward. i was in italy a week ago for spring break and so wanted to buy one just because of badassward. and i live in texas, it would be completely useless to own. sigh. another to add to the fantasy folder.
do you write the poems? i don't really understand poetry, but i like the ones in your story. and the conversations between b/e as ordinary girl and debussy88 are so poetic and amazing that my heart wrenches a little every time they come up. i'm hooked.
and cunt is the best "anatomical euphemism" ever in my book. ]

i preferred the previous chapter, but i understand that this one was necessary, and it is true that it is still one of the best chapters i have read in this fandom.
those in which you evoke a real sense of music are indescribable in the beauty and depth of their phrasing-your writing is not only poetic but lyrical, so you can feel the relationship ebb and flow like the tides, intangible but full of mysterious and pervading influence, and so so wonderful.
in answer to your question i must share a story; four years ago in a pe theory lesson my nutjob of a teacher introduced the topic of personal development by making lists of euphemisms for male and female genitals on the board, the point of which being to illustrate that there were so many more names for the penis. there were none for the vagina which maintained any respect that we managed to come up with, so i have to agree with jasper and go nether regions because at least the dignity you mentioned remains minorly intact.

I am loving the sexual tension between E/B! I kind of like Edward twisting in the wind, suffering a bit, and hope Bella gets a surge of confidence soon to look him in the eye. I was surprised at the band’s musical work ethic of not mixing drugs/alcohol with their recording (but they still play while drinking?). It is quite impressive for teenagers.

I've read the chapters to date, twice, without leaving a review because I'm at a loss. Your words are haunting and compelling. They make me feel like a fraud for considering myself a writer. I'm fangrrling over this story like a teen and am so long past that.
Girl parts...breasts should be ta-ta's or girls although chi-chi is Spanish slang and the preferred euphemism around is the only acceptable word for vagina. Cunt makes me cringe and pussy sounds cheap-porn stupid. Cock is a good word but I like 'little (insert name)' since they seem to have a mind and personality all their own.
