I am such a sucker for France angst, it's unbelievable. Awesome story as always. :)

P.S. Based on the christmas comment, I'm going to assume that this is set during the First World War.

That truly grabbed at my heartstrings and yanked hard. I'm not one for too much angst...but in this case, it was just perfect. The small issue I might have with it is that I'm not quite sure if it is during WWI or WWII - it gives me the impression of being WWII, seeing as France had been taken over and was in a much worse state. It also mentioned him swimming across the channel, which gives me that impression of WWII-istic times as well. In any case, the emotion spoke volumes from the perspective of a man watching his elder fall to tears, and I think that is simply amazing work. :) Great job!

WW1 western front, many soldiers joined up in both Britain and France as it was said to end before christmas. Too bad it didn't. Love this fic and all your work :)

Hn. WWI? "It'll all be over by Christmas" is a line I've seen in a lot of WWI novels. *Shrugs*

with looking, there come consequences.

indeed, there are things which one must pay dearly to see:

last sunsets,

the tears of a lover,

the end of an age,

the truth...

but then there are some times

when looking

and seeing it

there, reflected

[in their eyes]

[in the glass of the window]

[in the too-still waters]

is a punishment all its own.

I'm not one to cry at a fanfic, but I'm really tearing up... It was that line of England's that got me. Everything came together there; "It'll be all over by Christmas."

This is so beautiful. It's about France during WWII, right? xD

If not, sorry. Please tell me what it is. But in any case, really good story. Made me sad...
