Ugh I just can't wait for the next chapter. I need closure! I love how you wrote Duncan and Courtney so much. I'll probably re read the whole thing again for the billionth time when you guys post a new chapter. And Ik you guys said it would take 4-6 months till the next one but I'm so desperate!

OMG you guys, I've been reading this since 2014-ish (?) and after all this time (always lol) I still get excited over new updates. I don't even remember how I found this, but I'm happy that I did. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Are you guys still writing chapters or was this the end of the story? This fan fiction was so amazing to read! I loved it so much so I hope you're still writing more. Thank you

I had a day off, and I accidentally spent it reading all thirty-seven chapters of this story in a row. And honestly? I'm absolutely blown away at how phenomenal this story turned out. You guys brought me so much joy today, and turned my mild interest about Duncan and Courtney into a full-blown obsession. Hands down, THE greatest story I've seen on FFN (tied with Machine Gun Blues).
I could go on about how in tune you were with the character's voices, or how wonderfully you set the tone, or how sneakily masterful the dialogue was, or how every single character felt...well, in character - but the best part of this story to me was watching your writing evolve over time. TO give an example, the only real gripe I had with the quality of writing was the jumping-around of perspectives within a single scene. But that was fixed soon enough. It's been an honor watching you both grow as authors. (Even joining so late in the game.)
Also, developing the side characters through Courtney in this chapter was genius!
I wish I had found this story later, when the whole thing was finished, so I would be able to have a full night's sleep WITHOUT worrying if Courtney's Hail Mary works out. Or sooner. So I could've had more time with this story. I also wish I had some constructive criticism to add, but I can't find a single flaw in recent chapters.
I'll be sure to read the AO3 version in full once it comes out, because I actually have an account there. And check here every month for a possible update.
Kudos to you both for sticking with this piece for so long! My head exploded after reading the author's notes at the sheer amount of effort you've put into this piece. Your improvement and skill shines through every single scene, and I hope you consider futures in writing (if you aren't writers already). I can't wait for the conclusion!
Also, I hope you're happy with yourselves for making me stay up until one AM on a weeknight to gush about this amazing, amazing story. (Actually, scratch that. The one thing I learned from these two dorks is to, y'know, not pretend that it isn't your fault.)
(Was that corny? I'm sorry.)

You guys just keep on blowing me away! I loved this chapter so much, and the interaction between Duncan and Bridgette is just so sweet. Thank god Courtney got her head out of the gutter, you guys couldn't have written the scene better (her going down there to obliterate all the footage of them bit ending up only destroying his confeasion) GAAAHH I just love this story so much

I literally, and I mean LITERALLY, screeched when I saw you guys updated! I've been so frustrated today, and this chapter just gave me some pep in my step! I've been reading this story since about chapter 8 or 9, I think, and to see it come this far is just amazing. Can't wait for the next update!

Omg so glad you updated. I already had this story linked in my history and whe I clicked it by accident, and it said updated an hour ago, I was like NO WAY, I FEEL LIKE A WON THE LOTTO! Awesome chapter, so glad we finally know what Duncan went to juvie for! But I'm confused did Courtney watch the confession tape?, Does she know what he did? Anyway I'm so happy her mission is to go make up with him, while she still can. I know it gets repetitive but: Pllllleeeasssseeeee update soon!

I stopped reading this around the chapter on the ice rink because I knew that if I kept going I would traumatized myself for reading a story that wasn't finished. I only ever read finished stories so I don't get dependent and wait for updates but I figured if you were never gonna update I might as well read what you have written so far. Worst mistake of my life because I adore this and every few weeks or so I check for an update and nada. I absolutely loved this story. If I could print this out like a book (finished hopefully) just so I could keep reading it when I'm without wifi I would. You guys have done a fantastic job and I'm furiously awaiting an update!
