This was so sad, but it gives so much insight into what Edward's life was like before Bella - lonely, idle, bereft. I would have never guessed that, having learned from Bella's POV that he was quite the charmer in their retirement community. Interesting perspective.

I want to thank you for the older Edward I am so glad to see that he is getting older.I am older and know what he is feeling. But people forget just because we get older doesn't mean that we no longer feel things younger people feel. I am 64 and have been married 42years I still feel passion and love. My love is my best friend and if either one of us were to leave the other I would want him to fine a new life for himself not give up and if love with someone else is in the picture go for it. So thank you for your story.

Damn that was sad. But... glad it was sad as a prologue, knowing that better times are coming. So many wonderful phrases that caused little kinks in my heart.

Loved this deeper look into Edward. Such a realistic look at someone whose only sense of accomplishment and happiness seems to have been his work – and even that holds regret. Of course someone like that would be lost upon retirement, especially when he’s in the same house he lived in with his ex – knowing that he still thought of it as “Rose’s and my house” made me sad. I knew he had been lonely before Bella entered his life, but he seemed a part of the retirement community, with friends there, that I didn’t realize exactly how sad and alone he was - or how much he kept the unhappiness from his marriage so close to him. I think it’s a huge credit to his spirit and soul that he didn’t become a bitter person. That he felt he had something to wait for at the end made me happy. And the thought that Bella was just on the horizon made me even happier.
By the time I’d get through all the scenes I’d like in EPOV, it’d be pretty much the entire story. Definitely their first meeting and when he realizes how special she is, the proposal, having Bella around post-surgery, his feelings about being part of a family, his thoughts about this marriage, when she tells him she loves him. Thanks for giving us more...

I read this a few days ago, but got interrupted before I could review. I really love this look at Edward's back-story. I didn't realize how little we really knew about Oldward (jeez, you've got even us old folks calling him that, lol) until you opened the pages of this full, if not happy, life of his as an editor and writer.
I'd love to hear Edward's thoughts after first meeting Bella, and in the those first few weeks and months of their friendship. Was it love at first sight for him (I think so), or was he drawn to her by curiosity and loneliness, with love developing later?

*sigh* how i miss this story. you could share the entire thing from EPOV, and i'd be thrilled.
| ooza chapter 1 . 6/9/2010
Sniff is right!
I want to see the stuff Edward was uncertain about. Like asking Bella to stay with him and help him after his surgery, and then the bathroom moment when he worried she didn't see him as a man.

*sniff* my heart aches for him still...he is the sweetest thing
I will read anything and everything I can get my hands on with Oldward.
OMG standing out at the end knowing he had purpose to wait for something...*tears*
Loved this so...

I feel like I am on the precipice of either depression or happiness. I'm just not quite sure which. I guess considering where the story takes us, it's happiess but Edward and Rose's story was a bit sad. Poor guy just needs some Bella.
Great job as usual.

I'd like to see the whole story from Oldward POV, but if nothing else, I would love to see the first night he sleeps in her room, the dinner party, and the wedding.
I was glad to have Oldward back, but this was a little too sad even though I know there are happy times to come.
Thanks for writing and for giving us these outtakes.

I loved getting a peek into Oldward's past. Of course he was supposed to be there for something. To find the love of his life that will finally complete him.
While I would love the whole story from Oldward's POV I would really like to see where he bet Carlie for the first time.
| Britt01 chapter 1 . 6/5/2010
Ahh, so sweet. Interesting to see his decision to move to the residence - he really wasn't leaving a home he loved like Bella was.
I'd love to see his POV for when he first met Carlie, and then when he met the whole family...
| bmango chapter 1 . 6/4/2010
God, I forgot how much I absolutely adore him. Let's see, what would I like from EPOV?
When he first sees Bella at the willow
When she's first tells him about her family and vice versa (perhaps the phone call or first visit with Carlie)
When she comes and sits with him and his friends
When she agrees to move in with him
The Viagra moment
The visit to Jake's grave (the wedding maybe, too, but not as much)
OK, I think that may be it... (Not that I've been thinking about it...) :) -b

you're just awesome...I get giddy when I see your updates and fangirl when you write. Thanks for writing. I'm not much for threads and such, are you doing the Eclipse fan auction thing? Does someone have a 'team theladyingrey42' yet?
| Hongkongphooey chapter 1 . 6/4/2010
*sniff* Oldward is so sweet and sad. Bless him. I'd like to hear more about when he realises certain "dormant" parts of him still work hehe
