I saw her death coming but... omg you hit me hard.
This never stops being a good fic. This is one of the first Rocketshipping fics I ever read and I think it ruined me for liking a lot of other fanfiction. This is just such an amazingly heart wrenching story and everything is spot on. Well done. I have reread this at least 7 times, starting all the way back in 2016.

This fic never stops being worth rereading.

The contrast of the Mondo and Meowth scenes to the Jessie and James scenes is beautiful.
| aviciousunicycle chapter 12 . 2/1
The Butch and Cassidy dialogue was spot on.

Mondo... This chapter is a rollercoaster of emotion
| aviciousunicycle chapter 10 . 2/1
Gaaaaaahhhhh! Mondo! My heart hurts!
| aviciousunicycle chapter 9 . 2/1
Ahhhhhhh! Mondo is a precious little bean and all of the trauma he's going through is killing me...but it makes for great drama.

Even when I know it's coming, Lana's death still hits me like a right hook to the jaw.

This chapter is fantastic. Who wouldn't be emotionally drained after going through what they've been through?

Ash, Brock, and Misty were so in character that I could actually hear their voices saying the lines. Angry Jessie was also very well-written.

I love the characterization of the other Rockets sitting around and gossiping. I live for the tender scenes between Jessie and James, though. They are beautiful.

Augh! You write emotion so we'll. The pacing and the descriptions and it's all just perfect. I feel like they feel.

This chapter is so great. I mean, for one thing the bathing scene is just... It's iconic. Like, I saw fanart of that scene and immediately know what was being referenced. This is all such a nice little emotional pitstop so I can catch my breath before continuing.

The emotions in this fix are fantastic. This is like something professionally written. I mean, really, I would even recommend it to friends of mine who weren't fic readers or in the Pokémon fandom.

I'm rereading this fic for maybe the third time and I'm going to try to comment this time because I love getting comments.
I'd tell you how much I love this fic, but the fact that this is my third readthrough says that better than words could.
