| ale chapter 22 . 4/3
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.

It's 7 in the morning, I haven't slept, I think it was a bad idea to decide to re-read this at 11 at night, (mainly because I couldn't stop reading and I've been crying my eyes out to what Edwsrd and Bella had gone through). Having read this a few years back, it never fails to hit me in the gut, how heartwrenching and how emotional this story makes me. Thank you for this! Wonderful story. You are an amazing writer.

I am quite the voracious Twilight fanfiction reader but somehow TB&TC had escaped my notice.
Thankfully, it was being mentioned on our facebook group No Rules Twilight fanfiction.
When I began reading & became clued in on Edward's ability, the "symbiotic/parasitic" relationship between ExB, I was astounded, wondering where this was going?
Much like a hand sewn quilt being unfolded & spread out before the eyes, their story became a pieced interlocking cover of many colors & textures, surprising the reader with each new thread hue revealed or embroidered square added.
Esme was the Sun spreading love in every corner she could shine, Carlisle the grounding Earth, Emmett the tall & wide spreading Tree, Edward the mercurial Rain, sometimes a mist or sprinkle, a steady patter, or a raging downpour, while Bella embodied the Flowers bringing her face up to Esme's sun, planting her roots in Carlisle's soil, shading herself under Emmett's branches, while Edward's rain either replenished or drowned her.
Lovely, lovely story.

Second time reading, and I am once again struck by your compelling story telling. It's fandom's loss that this is your only story. Thank you for this one. It is one of those that stay with you.

Love that esme gave Edward the ring Bella wanted (and will receive when Edward is ready)
| Mechcat chapter 20 . 2/23
Wow. And Mike just made it easy for Bella. Edward must have been grimly laughing thru his fury at what Michael had to say. There's a reason why taking the high ground is so oft recommended.
I'm just finally reading this for the first time. It's all but impossible to put down. Well done in so any different ways.
I have been wondering where Charlie is? He must know what is happening with Esme, and that Bella is there? Or is he just uniformly AWOL?

Sitting here with tears falling. Oh to have a love like that. Just loved your writing. I have a bookmark on this story and am sure I will come back to it many many times. Thank you.

This is beautiful. I'm not even sure what else to say. The imagery, the symbolism, the way you twist words into delicate sentences - it's all breathtaking. This is a beautiful story about beautiful yet deeply imperfect people, and I loved reading it. Thank you.

Wow... a wonderful story! Though I don't like dark romance, this one will remain an exception.

I feel sorry for Edward...
... well, and Bella, too, of course.
