I don't read tragedies. I hate them. But this was so dag gum beautiful and realistic and heart renching. Truly art in words, hard to express that much emotion and overwhelming sadness, just beautifully dreadful.

yes - definately tears

I read this probably like a year ago (maybe longer...) and it's seriously stuck with me this whole time. The first time I read it, I sobbed like a small child. This is my second time reading it, and I still cried. So wonderfully written. I just love it!

I really want to see the picture but I cannot find your LJ :( This story was super sad but i love the spin you put on Eliot's family with his father dying a hero in war. Thank you

I can easily believe you nearly cried writing this. In the right mood, i'd cry reading this. Beautiful.
| Scifisam chapter 1 . 8/15/2010
I'm in tears. That was beautiful.

Oh my god, love it, Amazing, brilliant and any other awesome words I can't think of right now. I really love your Eliot stories, you always capture him so well :-)

| jediyam chapter 1 . 7/2/2010

Guess I should start with two facts:
-Its late so my brains shutting down already and
-English isnt my native language so expect more than a few mistakes ;/
Saw the pic on your journal and the entry about the commenting-types(gah,thats not a word,is it?)
Mhm,becuase of that language-thing Im not too enthusiastic about writing reviews but I guess its time to suck it up and submit a line or two(ha,more than two already even if its totally beside the point)
Loved the fic,your writing style won me over on the first story Ive read(?) aaand its still get the thoughts and feelings just right and that doesnt only let the characters look more "real"(for a lack of better word) and..forgot the other get back to you on that one.*
Anyway this is a loooong review-at least for me and given the time-aaand I wanted to say that it made me so disclaimer was just so life and that it can be hell ,it really is,isnt it?
How he lost his father..funerals are bad,losing family is..guess a bit like Grandpa died two month ago and it was the worst day of my life,bruised knuckles and sore throat a killer cant believe it and so it was easy for me to relate to the funeral scene.
Enough of that depressing stuff,I dont want to ruin the mood*looks around*I did that already?Oh my..sorry ;P
*Ah,I remember now!Hehe!(the brain switching to standby thing)
Feelings!Yes!How you describe them it just makes me smile or suffer with them or outright laugh(and sometimes almost cry).Or if theres whump it:Awwww,poor guy and I wanna hit the "bad guys"Grr~
greetings from a very tired and melting(so hoooot here)

Perfect...yeah I can't find the right words so perfect works.
| DesmondsConstant chapter 1 . 6/30/2010
Aw... I like this version of why Eliot hates guns, though. It would make sense.
| Double Mirror chapter 1 . 6/30/2010
O my God, that was really sad! The music fit it perfectly. You never see Eliot being emotional, and I thought it was really amazing. Keep up the awesome work!
| vampout chapter 1 . 6/30/2010
oh *cries* damn you for making me cry, damn you for writing such a beautiful tragic angsty fic! Curse you and your brilliant writing skills!
seriously, fantastic job and that pic is so heart wrenching.
| Twinchy chapter 1 . 6/30/2010
This was beautifully written, PJ, and very true to capturing the emotions conveyed by the picture you saw.
I that regard, I can understand Eliot's not hearing his father's CO's words upon handing over the flag.
And to me, the repetion of his father's words in the boy's ears make much sense and add to the overall tune of the story.
Very well done, PJ.
