Great chap! - The whole thing was so well done. I just wanted to comment on how cool it is that there is so much that "EdwardKnowsItAll"( fic of urs) doesn't know... Like, how surprised & enlightened he was w/ Carlisle's journal, & here, w/ Alice. I believe that to be true. Glad u pegged it.. - Can't catch it all, my dear Edward. :)
Anyway, like I said, great chapter.. As usual, it's just right.

"Trapped deep in the recesses of my mind, Edward ran on." - Wow. - HOW do u do it? :))
I loved the way this chapter played out. Everything happening, sure enough, & thru it all, Carlisle recalls important memories... Just so damn well done!

Two words: Perfectly done.
I know there are lots of canon New Moon EPOV, but this is the first I'm reading. Excited about seeing it all from his side... Again, perfect.

Just as I see it could have gone down. All the things behind the scenes that we never saw... this is it.

Dammit, woman! Lol. Superb chapter, although I cried the whole way thru it. - Started w/ Carlisle & Alice's trip back home. Her pain, his pain, everything they weren't saying. - The moments home, on the stairs.. phew. Emmit, the family, the hurtful words, realizations... All of it very affective.
& Tony.. I'd had a little hope for him, but real life happens this way, too. :/ It was painfully beautiful, the way that all played out. - Esme, waiting the end... Just right.
Let's see if I can pull it together & move on to the nxt chapter. ;)

Love your stats, sista. :) Nice work, as always.
Good chapter. I like the idea of E hangin w/ Peter&Charlotte for a while. I like the personalities you give them... I like the lil Maria twist, & I could hear her Latino thugness. ;)

"I'm feeling individual things from you. Means you're not standing there being all a mess." (If I got that exactly right)... I loved that. I love the voice you give to Jasper. Profound, indeed.

The journal was so important, but I just have to say that I laughed out loud the sight of Carlisle explaining Old English of happy guard to Edward & him losing intrest in the conversation. I can see him hide an affectionate eye roll, maybe by sliding his hand accross his face, while slumping in his seat. :) teehee.

Sweet for Edward to play for Esme to ease her heart, & I LoVe that the whole family (save R&E), saw him off the train station. - Made it seem less of "running away." I like the family support. :) - Although, worst is yet to come, I imagine. Right now, Bella is "there" to protect, so he has purpose.

Oh, my heart ached when Carlisle held Edward that way, & I loved that E allowed it... resigned to his father's comfort. - Although I completely understand Esme having to consider the well being of ALL her children, it still upset me that she suggested he go... Even tho, I 'spose she was hoping that suggestion would lead them back to Forks.
Loving this, even tho it's painful.

As I've told ya somewhere before, you are in my top 3 favorite & cherished writers. - I'm fairly new to FF, having just discovered it about a year & a 1/2 ago, & I'm just hooked.
Your writing, especially, amazes me. You put as much as your head (research, attention to detail/ i can "see" your stories), as you do your heart. - I am just getting started on this story, & know I won't be able to put it down. - Can't wait to see how it all plays out. :)
Again, thank you for sharing your work!

I have come to the end, and I am once again reminded why so much of your stories have become my head-canon.
If I think back too hard on this period of time within the Saga, I can't help but still get incredibly cross at Edward. Yes, AT him. But then I think, you know, we are all fairly horrible between the ages of 13 and 18. And Edward has been stuck there for over a century. That might well explain his moodiness and self-absorption-couched-in-the-facade-of-doing-eve rything-for-the-benefit-of-others.
Whatever, I still thoroughly enjoyed this. Thank you for writing it so well.

'"This time, take better care of this," the universe seemed to be saying.
I had every intention of doing so.'
I love this so much! Although, I do think Carlisle is unnecessarily hard on himself. I also think that Carlisle never did smack Edward enough.

"I found myself out of habit making a mental note to ask Carlisle about it—and then I realized there would be no such opportunity." What a fabulous way of reminding us how immediate this is. As I read the sentence my stomach actually lurched a little at Edward's realization.
And then I just got cross with him all over again. However hard this has all been on him - and I know that he HAS suffered and what he's going through is so very terrible and poor Edward etc etc - he brought this all on himself, on Bella and on his whole family. All because he can't trust that Bella knows her own mind and also, well, he's a little selfish really. I get so mad at him!

That was one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking things I've read. Thank you.
