I've just enjoyed another reread of this wonderful story, and I loved it just as much as I did the first time. Thank you so much for leaving it here for us to enjoy time and time again.

Dear Duskwatcher, Sometimes I jump back into the Twilight Universe (although really in my heart I have never left Edward) because of the fantastic memories. I love this story you wrote. I asked you to add my much loved and missed brother's name Richard, which you did 20 years and 4 days after we buried him.
The 4 years I was completely immersed in the Twilight Universe will always bring me joy, a bit of nostalgia and some longing. 2010 was probably my favorite year ever. I hope you are well. I hope you are still writing. I hope you still love Edward.
Be well and keep enjoying your life. Lisa

Wow. The Volturi are pure evil. To call God the architect of evil, insanity. I’m not Catholic, I’m not even Protestant, but still, that’s so crazy.

I’M NOT THROWING ANY TOMATOES BECAUSE AS MUCH AS I WANT THE TWO OF THEM TO FUCK, I understand this adds some Thickness and Viscosity to the plot AND I LOVE IT. I wish this was longer, I’m already halfway through it, but I can’t get enough!

the way edward’s perspective is written true to his teenage-hood, what a great detail. i’m immersed.

I never liked Bella in any other book or fanfic I have ever read but she is portrayed so well in this story that she is my favorite character. I love it. Thank you.

In the first chapters, I was afraid Emmet was gonna be a buffoon like most authors portray him but I’m glad he’s got some real wit and not just some punchline in this story. As always, I love em.

I’m trembling with anticipation to learn what it was that made Edward react like that to Monsignor. Thankfully I just have to click the Next button and I’ll find out. I just write comments now to relieve myself of these feelings, what can I say that I haven’t said already? I love Edwards courting strategy.

I just love how multifaceted every character is. This is so much better than the original books. Jasper is charming, Alice is cute, yes, but I sympathize for Rosalie and her anger makes sense to me; not because I think she’s a bitch but because she went through some shit and I can tell by your writing you’re more mindful of that. Her interactions with Edward in this story is a lot more digestible than the ones SMeyer had written. It’s great.

Bella’s thoughts are so curious. Edward’s tumultuous relationship with his nature of lust stands in contrast to Bella’s trust and steadfast foundation in her faith and fear of God. Edward sure is missing out, not being able to read her. Her testimony of repentance is touching and relatable to me, sinner that I am. As always, I enjoyed this chapter more than I can put into words. Before you know it, I’ll be writing reviews longer than the chapters you’ve published just to convey all the feelings you’ve dredged up with your choices of words.

Do you still read comments? I don’t know and even if you didn’t, I am overflowing with such awe that I have to share this anyway, whether you care or not.
I really enjoyed this, getting to know your Edward is like looking into an intricate and uncut natural gem and seeing the milky cracks, imperfections, varying hues and structures within the whole thing, and all the features and flaws make for a captivating crystal.
The temptations he faces, the wariness with which he treads the uncharted waters of this new connection with Bella… I’m running out of compliments. This is cool I guess, I’ll stick with that. (Yes, I’m in love with the story.)

I JUST LOVE IT SO MUCH. I cannot contain my emotions in lowercase letters. The giddiness I feel reading about Edward from Bella’s perspective… If I said I was in love with Bella earlier, boy am I enraptured! by this fictional character that is Edward Cullen.
You wrote this such a long time ago; I am sad I did not read this earlier but excited that I get to read this for the first time. I can only imagine how much better your writing has become since this was published. I’m not even done with this yet but I can tell you with utmost confidence, I will be hunting down your other works once I’m done with this one.

I just fall in love with your characters even more with each paragraph, each chapter. You’ve captured their personalities better than SMeyer could in the original books; Esme’s lovingkindness, Carlisle’s compassion, the bond between all the Cullens. I love everything from their conversations to their inner monologues. Edward’s internal struggle is very different from the original books, of course, but the fact that he’s able to admit that, for the first time, he enjoyed killing the perps and draining them of blood? That whole emotional process in and of itself is a testament to the complexity and history of his character. I love this. I know it’s just a fanfic, but damn I am really enjoying it. I see people have commented about being put off by the religious themes, they are weak cowards and don’t deserve to experience this artful tale.
