Okay I know its been a long time since this was posted, but honestly, this is one of the best things I have read in a long while. The ache in my heart from this piece is just so beautiful. This is a fantastic one-shot, and one I know I will reread many times over. It is exactly the kind of way Cain would react to such a situation. The characterization in this is just amazing. Kudos on a fantastic piece.

This is an absolutely amazing story. I read lots of fanfiction across many fandoms and I have never come across a story that affected me like this. It is breathtakingly painful and wonderful. I love it and want to read it again and again until I have it memorized.

Damn. That gave me chills

This is a beautiful, beautiful piece.

Christ, and I thought I knew pining!fic. THIS is the Cain pining fic to end all pining fics. I haven't come back to this fandom in years, but wow. I was an idiot to miss this one.

I read this a long time ago, and somehow failed to add it to my favorites. I am so delighted to have found it again (through your OUAT story).
You really do have a great flare for writing this kind of story.

Oh, so great! Freaking awesome! There were times when I couldn't breath and my own inner dialog was yelling, then rejoicing. Bravo!

WHAT! I didn't review this story! I totally remember reading it before and being blown away by it then...Regardless: I just re-read this because I remember it being THAT GOOD and now I'm even more blown away!
This is such a heart-in-throat story and you make me want to cry but in a good way because of it. I think...yep, there's a tear or two. This was so beautifully written and unique. I wish there were more fics like this out there. Thank you so much for contributing to the world, it made my day. You rock!

I really loved what you did with the 'tin man' imagery and what you did in the story and with Cain's POV was very interesting.
| emily chapter 1 . 4/17/2011
! I am in awe! complete shock at the amount of love and tenderness that story has caused. I thought your descriptions were beautiful, the internal thoughts of Cain were just like him, DG's reaction to finding herself out of her depth and... everything!
All I can say is thank you from the bottom of this tired, stressed out heart of mine, thank you!

This? This is absolutely beautiful. Seriously, words can hardly describe just how wonderfully written this story is. Captivating, heartwrenching and seriously one of the best stories on this site.

Oh my goodness that was so angsty, Cain POV-y, good! I loved the aching sweetness of it all. I sympathized with them all in this story and loved the pace you set and the way you really showed Cain's cracks. Thank you very much.

A little late, perhaps, but I just wanted to let you know how much I loved this story. It's perhaps the loveliest Cain/DG story I've read. It's almost lyrical, but not in anything resembling a sappy or juvenile way. It's just beautiful, and a little bit heartbreaking, and a little bit joyful, and that makes it just about perfect. You did a wonderful job.

Uh! G... Guh!
I am literally trembling after reading this. I'm such a mess of tension and joy and relief that the tears that had hovered in my eyes throughout this fic finally leaked out a little.
I love your parenthetical style in this piece. It provides such a lovely stream-of-consciousness flow, and I'm simply mesmerized.
I love all the points at which Cain is frozen by his feelings for her, and the end, where he is so quickly unfrozen and clutching her to him.
The last line simply undid me, "He is dull, tarnished metal, a basin of broken pieces, but when she touches him, God, she makes him shine." It's the use of "god," I think. That small interjection conveys that extra rush of awe and deep love, and this is when I finally cried.
Thank you so much for sharing this. I returned the favor by sharing it with some friends on Facebook. I'll be sure they drop you a review if they read it. :-)
