Bit confused at some points, but still brilliant. Love the broken clock, so good.

This was amazing, I've always loved stories that delved into Sam's past.

I also like the some-what open ending. (The whole Freddie is gone thing,)

It was nice.

will you become my new best friend forever and teach me how to write perfect, wonderful things like this?

because i just want to hug this story to bits and pieces and it's so fucking perfect i want to die because i feel so ashamed of my own writing because OHDAMN this was like the perfect sam fic.

I loved, loved, loved all of it. I was just confused on the last bit - had Freddie ever been there at all? But, it was amazing.

first off, that song just stabs my soul. absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking. so good choice with that, definitely a perfect hook. i shed a tear thinking about that and put it on for background music, which accompanied it rather well.

there are a few grammatical mistakes, but every one slips a typo or so in half-drowsiness or skimming through editing. but it doesn't detract from the story. another thing to watch out for is antecedents- some of the phrases were lost on me for a few seconds as the antecedents were not aligned. but that's about it technically.

i absolutely adore the concept of the broken clock and how it is almost present in every little moment in her life up until the final 'snippet'. and i love how the more it breaks, the more sam and her home life breaks. and also the parallels with the clock and sam's mother, and finally sam and her mother. it was very well executed in your own style and your words of how sam and carly / melanie contrast each other how she begins unravelling, detached from the others.

the ending was quite empty. and by that, i mean it left me feeling very empty. not sad, not happy (as the ending was neither sad nor happy), it just left me feeling very lost and very empty like there was something missing. but there was nothing missing from the story, that's how it should have been- empty and lost just like sam after the final breaking point in her life.

very well done. : )

Must admit this confused me since you keep getting from one age to another in a matter of minutes, still the angst IS there.

My one conclusion from reading this is that Sam just DOESNT want to let go of the past and in retrospect she DOESNT want to felt like an adult, not just yet anyways.

Invader Johnny Signing Off.

That was absolutely beautiful. Besides a few spelling errors, it was perfect. Great job, and I didn't get confused by it at all. :D

That was beautiful :) That's the one word I can use to describe it. There was one, maybe two grammar mistakes, but that was it. I really loved the imagery of the broken clock.
