Third or fourth time reading this story...*sighs* It's my favorite in all of Fanfiction. Hands down!

Hmm.. I hope this is a hea because this seems very interesting & I can't deal well with angst ridden stories that end in heartbreak.

I feel so conflicted about this story. At the beginning I couldn't help but hate Edward, his behaviour as a teenager seemed beyond abusive and awful and I didn't want Bella to choose him. Even the justification of his behaviour and the realisation that her memories are altered sat uneasily with me. But the second half of this story was just so beautiful that it made up for it. Sure they're great for each other, but it was Carlise and Esme who made this story for me.
I rarely cry over stories like this and you broke me in more places than one. The realness of Carlise crying and bargaining with God to take him instead of her was so recognisable that I could feel the pain that he did. And this chapter where we experience both his loss and his memory of her was so bittersweet. How to move on from the grief of losing the person that you have built your life with is not something I can fathom.
Basically, what I'm trying to say (In my incredibly long winded fashion) is that despite my reservations I've really enjoyed this story. It just doesn't feel done to me. I want to know if that baby was a boy or a girl. I want to know if they burned out or burned bright. I can make my own assumptions, but I still feel raw from Esme's departure that I can't quite enjoy anyone's happy ending. Thank you for sharing.

I must confess, I first read this story years ago, when you were first posting it. Over the years since, I have been drawn back to it, whether in passing as a bookmark I had saved, or as a favorite by another author. Each time I have fallen in love with it all over again. True love, as blessing and a curse. I never saw it as their gifts of hearing each other, but the way they unwittingly allowed their love to consume them, both of them running from it, across states and continents. Thank you for a beautiful tale, and for reigniting the hope of finding love for even the most closed and guarded of hearts. This tale never ceases to help me to remember that if it is meant to be, love will always find a way.

This was such a joy to read. I've been completely immersed in these peoples' lives for the past two days, which I think shows how good your writing is far more eloquently than anything else I could say. The way you explore how soulmates can be limiting is so engaging that I find myself hoping you'll one day write a sequel or even a prequel to their teenage years. I hope that you do still find time to write because you have such a talent it would be a real waste not to practice it!

State your opinion: Ridiculous troll name. Yes of course he's a troll. Definitely the worst and I've met I few to know it. Stubborness and obsession made him the worst. At least now the turtle is back in his armoured shell.x

This story was amazing! It should be made into a movie, I could absolutely see the script being written out into a story board! Thank you so much for this story!

First of all, amazing story...I have never felt so much when I read anything before. Such anger, love, misery, hatred...the kinds of emotions it induced in me were unbelievable.
But I do want to know what happened to Bella and Edward? I feel like there were subtle references to their relationship both working out and not and I am really curious as to whether their connection created more problems for them in the future, whether they survived them or not, considering the fact that they both surrendered and accepted it.

Read this story before and chap 17 guts me every time
| ale chapter 22 . 4/3/2015
This is the story I didn't know I needed. It has everything I liked, your Rose is lovely, Emmet is great without being childish, Bella was not a full, I liked Michel a lot, you didn't make him a 2 dimensional bad guy, but still you did not make him go without some fight and emotion. And now... Edward, it scares me, the fact that I was so compelled to him, creepy, obsessed and smooth, this is my favorite kind of Edward (God help me with my taste in men haha). I confess, I overlooked the story for years, what a jewel I could have lost. Thank you for the story, it was a pleasure.
