This was so sad but the ending made me feel better. I can't believe he left her during the most awful time in her life. Not quite sure I would ever understand.

| PLEASE READ VERY IMPORTANT chapter 1 . 2/22/2010
Very IMPORTANT! Please,please read through whole review post
It's not even Fanfiction administrators who are causing this problem of the removal of Fics rated M, but a groups of, kids, with god-like complexes who run a hate group called Literate Union.
Please feel free to use all this info within an Author's Note if you like or send it to all your loyal readers, ask them to pass this message verbatim however they can, or ask them to send this email to FanFiction admin at reportabuse . There is also a petition, please sign at s/5734048/1/Petition
I don't know why the Twilight authors and fans are not fighting back and are letting the Literate Union members get their way and win. As a result I've seen many terrific authors taking their stories to many different sites and leaving FanFiction. All the hard work and time authors put in to write stories put to waste with fewer readers following.
This is the email that I sent fanfiction about the attacks from the scum who run Literate Union.
/u/599541/ - Lord Kelvin – Moderator for the Literate Union
/u/1600268/Georgasaurus - Georgasaurus/kittysaurus - Co-Founder of the Literate Union
/u/1935085/ - Ever heard of a dictionary – Co-Founder of the Literate Union
The three accounts and two forums above are violating the terms of service of fanfiction.
The TOS say in Section 7B: " reserves the right to decide whether Content or a User Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement or privacy law, such as, but not limited to, hate crimes, pornography, obscene or defamatory material,or excessive length. may remove such User Submissions and/or terminate a User's access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion." A hate crime is defined as: a crime if it involves the use (or threat of use) of force, intended to hurt and intimidate. Obscene is defined as: offensive to one's feelings, lewd. And, defamatory is defined as:defaming or tending to defame; slanderous.
The Literate Union takes part in hate crimes and obscene or defamatory material. They target authors who write in certain genres and they take it upon themselves to “constructively criticize” them by telling these authors that they cannot write and that their story is crap. They also leave spam reviews that have nothing to do with the stories. The obscene/defamatory material that they partake in includes, but is not limited to:
Georgasaurus (now known as kittysaurus)
2010-02-01 . chapter 19
"I look forward to this story being deleted and two authors leaving the site. Reposts of chapters are against the rules, and so you are reported again.
Co-Leader of the Literate Union
2010-02-01 . chapter 19
Posting non-story chapters is illegal on FFN. You are ripping off your readers by providing them no content, but still wishing to generate review 's comparable to getting a candy wrapper instead of of you novices can squirm as much as you wish, but this story was supposed to be rated MA. MA was forbidden on this site for years, so I wish the poster and the public a good trip to adult fan fiction dot net. They host such uploads and offer plenty of competition for an aspiring senseless smut uploader. There, you won't need to mask your story as something friendly to underage individuals. Consider redirecting your complaints to Georgasaurus in the Literate Union a nice, abuse-free day."
The Magic Flying Walrus
2010-02-02 . chapter 1
"Tell me, Shannon, how's your son doing? Does he know you can't write for crap? Oh, the shame he'll feel when he realizes his mother is so bad at writing, she has to write cheap smut that has no excitement factor at all. It's as if a large, invisible hand has picked up your characters and started smacking them together, like a child playing house with her favorite dolls."
This last review was the worst of them all. This person went to my profile and used the personal information I shared with fanfiction and then wrote this “review” and left it for all to see. All of these reviews are considered spam and are harassing, obscene, and are defamatory. Although two of the reviews pointed out my mistakes, I did correct my story and it now complies with the guidelines.
The forums that these people hide under are just masks for their work against the authors and stories that the people in the Literate Union deem unworthy. They take it upon themselves to police the site and look for stories that they think are unacceptable in terms of spelling, grammar, plot, or content.
Then, the Literate Union sends mass emails to their members and post links in their forums so that the other members and non-member people who hang out in their forums can click on the link and report the stories numerous times. They even have members as young as 13 who are asked to click on links to M rated stories and report them. M rated stories are only appropriate for ages 16 and up. By asking these young members to visit M rated stories they are engaging in the act of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.
The excuse of the Literate Union is that the content on should be acceptable for any age and that anyone will click on the stories. May I present this information?
Stated in section 5F: "You understand that when using the Website, you will be exposed to User Submissions from a variety of sources, and that is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such User Submissions. You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to User Submissions that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against with respect thereto, and agree to indemnify and hold , its Owners/Operators, affiliates, and/or licensors, harmless to the fullest extent allowed by law regarding all matters related to your use of the site."
The Literate Union argues that the material in the stories that they oppose and object to is offensive, indecent, and objectionable. Yet, fanfiction’s TOS state that each person may be exposed to that kind of material and they waive any rights. These people have no right to police the stories on fanfiction and report them numerous times in one day just because the information was offensive, indecent, and/or objectionable.
The icing on the cake of this group is that they consider themselves above the rules and regulations that they attempt to enforce. The co-founder, Georgeasaurus, has a swastika on his profile which falls in with the hate crimes. And, one of their members, NaLaaSt has a pornographic story posted.
These people, these self proclaimed literate people, need to be stopped and their actions ceased. They have targeted a number of fanfiction authors and are attacking them through organized mass emails to the members asking them to contact the author and leave mean comments on their reviews and in private messages, and they repeatedly report the stories they deem unacceptable. One member even admitted to reporting a story over 25 times in a few days. That is harassment and stalking and should not be acknowledged or allowed.
Many popular authors have had to pull their stories or have had them deleted because of the Literate Unions actions. These authors are moving to other sites and pulling large numbers of readers with them. This is taking away from and will continue to happen if the Literate Union is allowed to continue with their actions and forums and profiles.
The main fandom that the Literate Union targeted is the Twilight community. The Twilight community has been involved in numerous fund raisers including Fandom Gives Back for Alex’s Lemonade Stand and The Haiti Compilation where over $80,0 was raised for Haiti Earthquake Relief. I was one of those authors who participated. The Twilight community has a voice and we do make a difference.
Stop the Literate Union. Delete their forum and let the people on fanfiction rest easy that they will not be targeted unnecessarily. The Literate Union even has a list of stories in a thread on their forum that they are working to have removed. They are acting like the Nazi Regime and should not be allowed to continue with their actions. If they continue then will lose many loyal authors and readers.
Fanfiction is our home; please do not let us be run out of it by some bullies masking themselves as the Literate Union.
It is my understanding that also created . If was as easy to navigate and post on as then many authors would be happy to move their submissions there. However, it is difficult to post on and to navigate. If is not affiliated with adultfanfiction then fanfiction should either include an NC17 rating or an MA rating or completely remove the M rating altogether. The lines are too blurry and many authors are having their hard work stripped from them because they do not know the specific line where a story crosses from M to MA/NC17.
Please fix fanfiction, whether it be by adding a new rating or removing the M rating and by getting rid of the Literate Union. They are giving your site a bad name and reputation and running off many authors and fans.

GAH How could you even say no to that?
edward is amazing! even if he did eff everything up.
i liked it alot :)
| jka1 chapter 1 . 1/26/2010
I thought this story was really interesting. I sympathize with Edward but at the same time I don't think Bella should have taken him back. If you truly loved someone you would be there for them no matter what and what he did was pretty unforgivable in my opinion. I'm torn between being happy that they got back together but at the same time I don't think he deserved the chance. Really great story, it really makes you think. -
| Shortcake79 chapter 1 . 1/11/2010
Aw this story is so sad..how could he leave her like that. But he totally made up for it with everything he did for her. I love the end..how they are willing to try and are gonna get help..thanks for sharing this story! x
| 2loveybunnies chapter 1 . 12/10/2009
Wow, I am so torn by this because I love your writing, and I love the premise, but I just don't think I can forgive Edward for leaving Bella during the greatest crisis of her life. What a coward! I get that he watched over her, and I get that he did little things for her but damn, how selfish can he be? I'm sorry, but when you get married it's for better or worse and you don't bail on cancer because you just can't handle it. My husband got cancer 6 months after we got married. Was I scared, fuck yes! Did I leave him, fuck no! I know you have to forgive and move on, but I think Edward just got a "get out of jail free" card from Bella. Still, I'm glad they got back together because I am all about the happily ever after... I got mine! I still love you and will read anything you write - even the back of a cereal box!

Great job, I loved it. Very sweet and touching, I had tears in my eyes. The fact that it is based off of real life makes it even more beautiful. Ellie

What an asshole. Look I'm not going to go off on him too much as you actually know a couple that this happened to, but how could he even consider doing that? As if it wasn't the most life altering thing she'd heard in her life, She had to then face him leaving her too. That's to much for any woman to have to deal with. Unfortunatly I know woman do get left with this sort of thing, what confuses me is why she would take him back, or even offer to work on it (I don't know, maybe she's more mature than me, & I'm not in that situation so I can't judge, but that has got to be one of the most heartbreaking things) If he can't deal with pain or problems in their marriage once, why would he stay when things don't suit him again. I guess I'm fortunate in that my dad was an amazing support to mom when she had her cancer & my aunts partner stayed by her side until she passed on, even though times were difficult. *sigh* I'm going to stop here because otherwise I'm just going to go on repeating myself.
I was on the art show inspired by smut blog & they recommended this story. (with it being breast cancer awareness month & all)
The story was beautifully written, it definately made me think again about cancer & the effects it has on not just the person but their loved ones as well. I guess the more people that read this & are reminded of this, the better. It has definatly bought up an issue that so many of us have to face now unfortunately.
Thank you for writting it

69th review! lmfao
anywhoo...I love it, it was beautiful
| teacher1209 chapter 1 . 10/5/2009
This was such a beautiful O/S. Cancer can be very trying on a couple, so glad to hear the 'real' couple are still together and she is doing well.
