Bring the tissues! I saw your banner but it should come with a box of tissues. Very sad. Very emotional. Seriously, do you have to be such a good writer?

Why do I feel like I want to cry my eyes out. As much as I hate reading stories like this cos I feel so depressed and feel like I'm gonna cry at the slightest thing, I can't help but read them and think about them all day. I haven't finished reading Departing Sun cos I couldn't stop crying and I don't think my heart could take it. Anyway, when I first looked at this, for a minute I thought hotch was gang to see Hayley,then I seen that Garcia went to the grave, and I don't see pen going to visit her,then I knew it was Emily. I think te thing that set me off, was when they got married when they were doing her last rights( god, that lump in my throat is coming back : ( !) and then when hotch said happy anniversary at the end. So sad, but excellently written, especially as it got me to cry and I ain't one to cry. Well done

You always amaze me with your stories They are so detailed and I always feel that I am standing right next to the characters. After reading this and it's companion piece I had honest to God tears streaming down my face, and let me tell you when your sitting outside surrounded by friends with your laptop and suddenly you start crying they get a little freaked out. But I loved this story and I love all your other criminal minds stories. Keep up the good work.

This is an excellent fanfic story. I really enjoyed it. Keep up the great work!

Oh my gosh this was so so so sad I cried all the way through, great writing though I must say.
I didn't read the original Hours but following this now so looking forward to the happy ending story.

Ummm wow! Poor poor Hotch! This made me cry so hard! One of the few stories to ever do that. Haha you're an amazing writer :)

I read this in sequence (after reading Girl and The Hours) and it really has a huge emotional punch. I liked the details about Hotch and Richard Prentiss becoming friends. I liked how Hotch and Elizabeth Prentiss have enough of a connection where he is able to offer some comfort to her. And it seems very in character for Hotch to have such deep and enduring feelings - particularly when Girl is taken into account. She was clearly The One.

I don't know how many times I've read this story, it can still make me cry. You have got a talent to make people laugh, or cry. You can deliver any emotion and that's what I love about anything you write. It's unnecessary to say that this story is beautifully written, as always
Looking forward to a Girl update :)
| Em MD chapter 1 . 7/19/2009
Even I have missed the tears. But beautiful.

Wow - poignant stuff. (Thanks for the warning BTW.) One thing I particularly appreciated was how you had him only promising to for sure see things through until Jack was grown, and only promising day by day after that.
So often it seems stories (movies that come to mind include Truly, Madly, Deeply and P.S I Love You) resolve with a more certain longer term promise/plan to go on. It's just nice to see here that even after 6 years while he's still breathing in and out (aka Sleepless in Seattle) the feelings are as intense as before.
Sometimes I think friends/family want more permanent resolution/recovery when someone suffers such a loss, makes them feel better, they don't have to worry so much. But I think that sometimes the loss can be so severe that life is forever altered, and that loss remains as much at the surface of every moment as when it first happened. I hope I'm making sense here. Shivers came when you wrote about imagining another 30 or 40 years...

Even with the King Kong you still got amazing reviews.
It's 'cause you're amazing. Obviously :)
No more sadness, okay?
At least not this LEVEL of sadness for quite some time...

OMG, I'm WEEPING! Beautifully written yet so hard to read. Maybe I read too many Lurlene McDaniel books when I was younger, but I actually think this would've been a great ending to The Hours. It's has the perfect bittersweet taste.
