you offered us here an incredible insight in Carlisle's pain, a father's suffering for his son pain. Amazing!

First of all, I loved how long this chapter was! I use the Text-To-Speach app to listen and when this chapter loaded into the app I saw 50 (glorious) minutes ahead...
Secondly, I always thought that Bella was genius (intentionally or not) the way she phrased everything during that meeting so that there was practically no choice just to say yes.
And then the fact that Edward's did not want Bella to become a vampire was his strongest expression of love for her but for Bella, this was something that fueled her doubt that he wanted her... an obstacle to their 'forever'... so she caught Edward saying 'amazing Carlisle was right' and completely destroyed that obstacle... genius!
Thank you so much for suggesting the itinerary for a trip to Forks. I live just a short drive away from there though across the border in Canada and discovering Twilight during the pandemic trip to Forks and La Push has become my dream travel destination as soon as they open borders

I must admit, having read all your other stories I was afraid to read your New Moon from Edward POV for the sheer angstiness of this whole piece and the very good and powerful way you write. Everything feels very real. Too real. When I read the New Moon I usually skip all the sad parts and go straight to the reunion at the fountain. But I loved all your other fics so much I finally found the courage to read this story. I mean, it's a classic! I hear it again and again from all the other fics.
I am I did and I loved this story so so much.
I took a break from reading, you know for food and work and sleep, and decided it's a good time to write a review as I should have done it after each chapter. I really loved how you portrayed the entire family's contribution to the whole Edward-going to-Voltury-to-die thing. Rosalie would never make that call if Carlisle did not 'advise' her to act and Carlisle gave the advice affected by Esme and so on...
And in this chapter when they have to devise a cover story being fully aware of how very, very badly this might end was so painful to read! When reading canon fic we as readers usually know what's gonna happen. But I try to put my brain in that state where I imagine I don't know the outcome because the Cullens did not... they lived through that awful 3 days not knowing if Edward, Bella, and Alice would be back...
And Rosalie I feel just so bad for her... she was just being herself... and she realized what she (almost) has done... ouch ouch and ouch living with that for eternity even being forgiven ouch
And Carlisle! As I said it feels too real. I've never felt so... what's the word... compassionate for someone as I felt for Carlisle living through this whole episode with the weight of all his 300 years on his shoulders and experience of the last century creating this incredible family he was about to lose...
Your writing is amazing! And I love how much depth you added to the story seamlessly adding the missing bits and pieces in to the original plot which now makes more sense

I was really hoping to read the Charlie scene again

I’m going to ignore this plot hole

I refuse to believe that this ISNT the real storyline.

This is the most beautiful story I read! Thank you so much for sharing!

I am sorry to think it, but it seems like Edward will be a long time (if ever) before he accepts Bella as his true equal. He still wants to be the one who's opinion rules things. I hope they settle this before the wedding.

Trust Rose to be the most selfish of the group. Esme asked her to hold it in for a bit, but her opinion is SO IMPORTANT that it had to shared when she felt like it needed to be given...

This story has given a whole new perspective on New Moon. the characters seem very canon and I’d imagine if Stephenie had written an EPOV and CPOV that it would been very similar to this story. I loved reading this, it’s heartbreaking but still so beautiful. Thank you for sharing

Yeah. The slogan is a bit overused, but it truly is gorges
