That was AMAZING. Good lord.
There's not enough Rachel/Paul fic out there. [ This was perfect though.

I've never read a Rachel/Paul fic. I really enjoyed reading her side of imprinting and the decisions she makes to be with him.
I hate that she left university for a boy, but you wrote it in a way that didn't make her sound frivolous.

Hey... Really liked the one-shot. I'm glad you picked Rachel Black as the character to write about. It's something I've wanted to see for a while, stories about the Quileutes and how the non-wolves have been affected by this massive change in their lives. And I like that you made it realistic; even though she wants to, Rachel CAN'T go back to state, because that's the kind of bind she has to Paul, and therefore to La Push. Thanks for the story!

That was really good. One of the better characterizations of Rachel Black that I've read. And her having one more year of college made more sense than any of the others where she graduated early since she's most likely around 20 years old.
That's not graduating early, that's getting your associate's degree. Heh
Thanks for writing!

Hi! Thanks for being willing to write in a canon couple! There are so few canon entries at this point :(.
(I'm slogging through writing a Jessica and Mike entry.)
I like that you his on a few class issues when Rachel goes to school, and the dynamic that comes from being of a particular ethnic group. As a whole, this fandom can be quite scared of race, class, and gender issues.
I was missing something, though. I think one of the main issues both sisters had for escaping La Push so quickly was Sarah's death. That house was small, and filled with memories of their mother (and their grieving father). Imagine having no choice but spending years in a place that holds little comfort because your *mother* is gone? That's why Rachel never came home-she didn't want to have to see the house with all those memories. I think having a job and taking courses was possibly an excuse not to come home. Rachel may have been all the things you explore: smart, dedicated, driven; she was also a grieving daughter, separated from mother and sister. I wish you'd explored that more.
I also like how detached it felt from the other "Twilight" events-it really made me realize how peripheral Rachel's character was, despite her role in the wolf pack.
Nice job! Good luck!
