Okay, I totally loved this chapter. Edward eating the sandwich to throw Rebecca off was pure brilliant. I loved that Bella could sense the things he was getting from their minds and just 'going' with it. They are really beginning to communicate as a real couple does. And then when she mouthed "your son" to him, it melted my heart! And that George loves music too...I'm telling you, so beautiful!

Okay, these questions were pure effen genius. Like I said, I would ask everything under the sun, but I love the ones your Bella asked. And again, I love this Edward so effen much. He is truly adorable! The game they play with the baseball is such a great detail into Cullen life. I LOVE stuff like that. Again, it pwns me!

Just so you know, since I was reading this at work, I couldn't really make comments so I actually took notes. I took NOTES because I wanted to point out the absolutely riveting points of your story. Now, that I look back at my notes, I'm not exactly sure what I was trying to say, but just know that I have loved every moment of this story!
The diary entries were superb. They truly sounded like a 17 year old girl of that time frame. And the Edward that you depict from back then is just so right. And then I loved that Bella googled him and saw the postings for the class reunion and the Snoopy shirt. How frickin cute was that. And an awesome detail for you to put out there. But THE best part of the whole chapter was when Bella realized she didn't know about him through the things in his room. I really HATED that about the original series and a lot of the fics I've read. Who wouldn't want to sit down with a 107 year old vampire and ask about every single thing he has done in the last century! I'm so glad your Bella finally realized this and they started to communicate more. Oh, I love it...truly I do!

Okay, so I totally understand Bella's heartache at the beginning but I LOVE how you get her through it and she shows her strength and love for Edward. Oh my God, I love it.

I was actually reading this story on Twilighted but found it over here and decided to put my comments here because I always get logged out over there and lose my comments...
So...Let me start by saying I love this story. It is totally different, unique, awesome and heartwrenching. Your Bella and Edward are totally in character with the original books. I love your shy and pensive Edward to death. He pwns me! I feel so incredibly bad for him in these first few chapters. I mean I truly ache when he tells Bella about Lucy. What an awesome fic!

I love it! You've got the characters spot on but at the same time you've written them as more mature. The way they adjust and cope is so realistic. I can't wait for more! :)

I have not stopped to have lunch, pee or even answer the phone...that about says it all!
I am so delighted with your story! Most especially because many of the details you have here are also in a way in my novel, "Evening Star/Morning Star."
It is in final revision now, although some early chapters are up on my site as 'stories'.
I would love it if you would check it out and let me know what you think.
Longish work doesn't seem to get the level of reviewership as the short ones. Do not be troubled. As we say in jazz, sometimes you're singing to the one soul at the bar that appreciates you, sits waiting for the next lick, and maynot be demonstrative in sentiment. Doesn't mean you haven't effected them... So, we always play for that person.
Bravo on this story. Realistic, in cannon, and with a humanity that is not found in many.
Today, I am your one person at the bar. But I hope I have made my appreciation of your craft and the depth of my sentiment.
Now, how will I explain my absence from life today? Simple! I am sending them the link and they will understand completely.
Looking forward to the conclusion...which I hope never comes.
ONE little thing...in the Meadow on the big day you talk about the quilt, and how lovely it is and all that...but then all the references to the item they did the deed upon are to a 'rug'? I know continuity is best left to outside eyes because an editor can catch inconsistancies better. Probably you had one and then changed it to another. Or perhaps, I got it wrong. But in anycase, you might want to check that out!

I have developed a bad habit of not reviewing a work in the middle...when there are more chapters posted...
SO believe me when I say I am struggling to tear myself away to say how much I love this story!
Not only it is a creative jaunt into new territory it is a necessary link to the humanity Edward's denies himself...and that Bella unearths for him.
SO Thank you and well, back to the read!

What a beautiful, tender chapter. The letter from Siobhan telling them that there are vampire hybrids in the world, and that the delivery of the baby was survived by the mother was a great relief. You then followed up with a shopping trip, some almost lemons, some time spent with Charlie. Edward made a big discovery, realizing perhaps for the very first time how much Bella loves him. That scene brought tears to my eyes.
I absolutely loved the scene where Bella finds the picture of herself, and it was such a nice setup because at first it wasn't clear that this was actually her in that picture, but it then became apparent. And to transition that into Edward painting a mural of that very special place for the baby's bedroom - that was brilliantly done.
I love the playful scene in Charlie's kitchen, which then becomes another tender moment. You set them up so well, the feelings those two are experiencing simply leap off the page.
And then - evil cliffie... UGH! Now my mind is spinning with images of Charlie's reaction...
