I'm so close to crying right now. It's sad but beautiful. And adding those little boys at the end; perfect.

| Daniela Kirkland chapter 11 . 12/3/2013
That was so beautiful, it made me cry.
I was halfway through it when my Ipad died, so I took the risk of going on my grandpa's computer to finish it (i'm not allowed on the computer during weekdays).

That was beautiful, in a depressing sort of way.

Wait. What was the real reason for Alfred's horror movie obsession?

Yell at you? For making such a-a...a heart wrenching story? I just...I had to take a moment to recollect my thoughts once I finished reading this. Realize I started reading this tale around 11 p.m., and I am just now doing this review.
This was just utterly...enamoring! Yes, it took me awhile to find the right word but this truly was so bittersweetly-masterfully done. (that rolls off the tongue a bit awkwardly)
I found the pace to not be a hamper but really an interesting and compelling way to build the story if a bit slowly for some people's taste-yet, really it gave us a better scope into how distraught these dreams were making Alfred to the point of his utter hollowness to the outside world. I honestly think that is also made Alfred's growing affection for Matthew more believable than if it were told as something that just happened.
You wrapped up the story quite nicely my I add, (I don't want to give away more than I have already so I shall keep it as vague as possible). I truly was like icing (or whip cream from personal preference) on the cake!
I should end this soon before it becomes a story of its own.

I bet those kids were Canada and America! I actually felt like I was in the story. I found myself crying after every dream, and even when America confessed to Canada in the snow.
I really thought that saving Matthew in the dreams would bring him back. . .I felt extremely sad when he didn't.
But. . .It fits the story. I loved it. Please continue writing, you're really good.

| HABanime chapter 11 . 9/24/2011
I have got to say, this story is nothing short of amazing. I really liked that it ended differently than dead/alive/ghost love stories usually do; with the dead person convincing the living one to move on. The idea that love crosses all boundaries is so beautiful, And it was heartbreaking and yet perfect when alfred joins matthew.
Although The story could have ended just fine without the epilogue, the bit at the end with the two children was a nice touch.
Again, spectacular job! I hope I can read more from you! :)
| Midnight Ghost chapter 11 . 7/9/2011
This is so emotional. for lack of a better word.
You kinda mixed America's dreams and reality that made it really easy to relate to.
I feel happy that the two are together in the end, because they really needed it.
Great story! :)

Very moving story, I'm deeply emotional right now. Have you seen a similar story to this? It's called Children of a Common Mother, it's not exactly similar, Canada just goes missing, as well as the landmass, and everyone forgets about him. And Al starts feeling something is amiss. This topic you and that author picked are extremely interesting and I'm glad I picked your fic too. :)
Your writing is beautiful, and I had a knot in my throat because I was about to shed tears over my keyboard.
About the ending, even if Al and Matt aren't exactly 'alive' they are together, that makes it so bittersweet, it's the first time I enjoyed feeling this. And it's all thanks to the way you put the words together.
You are a wonderful author! Keep up the good work.
And thanks for writing this!

OMG! This is from chap. 11 (I read the whole thing) A. F***ing. Mazing! I LOVED this! CanAm is my favorite pairing, and I love the slow, sad start, and the sap at the end, and the little twist in the epilogue where they are reincarnated as regular humans! There goes my homework...
