Just wanted to let you know that your story is canon to me. I don't usually even read such long fanfiction, but I'm really glad I made an exception for yours! Everyone is perfectly in-character, and I can see the story happening. The way you write just flows. Thank you for writing this amazing story!

This? This is going to be my TS4, forever and ever. Or at least, TS3: The Epilogue. Thank you, thank you, oh THANK YOU for writing this. It's slightly ironic, but very in-tune with the franchise, how the toys you write about teach us more about being human, about love and friendship and hope than some humans do. The voices you gave them were splendid and the writing was engaging. I ached, I teared and I couldn't stop reading all because I needed to see how the sheriff and the shepherdess could find and keep each other. Kudos and thank you again for filling the hole TS3 left behind!

"It's hard to work around something that you spent ten years building, Buzz,"
That line killed me. An emotional K.O. if I ever read one. This entire chapter, the lives of toys and how they never get to decide anything about their futures-it got to me. I just wanted to backtrack and say that these sentiments are completely applicable to any one of us. You do an incredible job handling Woody's heartbreak and thoughts and an even more amazing one showing that although someone isn't there physically, they can still be felt. This is the finest form of emotional torture and rapture. I tip my hat off to you once more.

I had to come back to this story-I had to reread it. Simply because it makes me splendidly happy. It may elicit tears and tug at my heart strings but that's what good writing is. It is evocative and compelling and thought provoking. In short, everything that a great novel is.

I saw this story on TvTropes' fanfic recs and have never been more pleased that I clicked on such a link. I thought the way you developed Bo's character was amazing, and the storytelling was really powerful. Thanks for such a great story!

As I read this, the time just started to slip away and before I knew it...well it's 3:30am and I read all the chapters.
Wow. Words can't really describe how much I loved this story. It was just so passionate. I laughed, cried, felt the character's emotions, and it just felt real.
This story is always going to be in the back of my mind. I'm going to have to read it again someday. :)

I must say, this is definetely the best Toy Story fanfic I've ever had the luck to find and read.
I never thought a fic about toys would make me have tears and laughter -and a bitter lump in my throat, I may add- as company througout a story.
Hope this isn't the last TS fic we get to see from you. Keep up the good work, and good luck.

I can never express how much I truly loved this sad, sweet and beautiful story. One of the rare fanfics I read word for word, from start to end; and the first I can hold dear in my heart.

Beautiful. You handled this so wonderfully. Great work.

This was a gorgeous, beautiful story to find and I feel so lucky I found it. It was sweet in the beginning with Woody and Bo meeting and starting their relationship, I actually cried when they had to be seperated and watched them as they went through life without each other. And I was so thrilled when they found each other again and then were ultimately brought back together again. Thank you for this wonderful piece, I think you hit everything perfectly!

I don't think I can praise this story as eloquently as needed but-your story made me tear up, it made me laugh-think. I've read many short stories, novels, and poems that haven't provoked this much of a reaction from me.

This was such a beautiful story. :3 It is something I may reread and share with others.
Your insight on the characters was refreshing, and you really respected their personalities rather than going off and making them unrecognizable.
As one might guess, I've been in a bit of a Toy Story mania. XD Ever since I unwrapped the Toy Story 3 dvd on Christmas, I have watched it, I would hazard a guess at, more than ten times already? I never get tired of it. :D I either get misty eyed or outright bawl when it gets to the end of the movie, mostly over closely relating to the human issues at the present moment in my life.
I loved how you humanized Bo and Woody by amplifying the problems they have as toys into something that would very much resemble the trials and tribulations of a human relationship.
Rounding this critique off, I will say that as much as I love Toy Story, your wonderfully written fan fiction added that much more flavor to something I already adore.
