Unbelievably filled with the bittersweet, tender, mournful, fear & shame, rejection, desire, acceptance, & love.

Heartbreaking. Lovely. Beautifully written in spare style so that every word matters. I am amazed, once more, by your ability to craft such wonderful pieces of written work. Thank you so much for sharing them with us.

I think this o/s is absolutely wonderful. I'd love to see you publish a book with your own characters, just to be able to read how you describe them and your story. Your stories and your words are beautiful.

after reading a number of your stories, i have come to have the highest expectations. you never, ever, disappoint. i could list the physical feelings that came over me as i read this: tightening of my jaw, queasiness in my stomach, shortening of breath, but none come close to the heart-break when he actually spoke the words. you are a master.

Holy crap this made me cry! It touched home because a very close friend of mine died from HIV a few months ago.
Absolutely loved it! And I'm glad I was able to find this story.

This was written in such a perfect way. My heart breaks for Edward, and Bella, but they are strong and resilient and in love. I have hope for them.
Thanks for sharing. This was something I've never read before, and it was lovely.
