The pain of the living wounded is so visceral here. Yet within the despair and self imposed loneliness we really feel Jasper's slow exposure to a dynamic and insightful Edward, and of course hope...
Thank you for sharing. Fantastic.

Very beautiful, as always. You make angst beautiful, as Edward made ruins beautiful art.

I'm not sure how you manage to write so beautifully when the text is almost entirely severe angst that just rips out your heart and spits on it. And yet it reads like poetry. It takes pages to realize what the seeds you planted in the beginning will materialize into. I am always amazed by your words.
My most favorite passage: "Much like I did his body, I take an infinite amount of time to simply breathe them in, inhaling with my eyes a vision of the world that bears no resemblance to the one that I have seen and yet which matches it perfectly."

Very beautiful; almost poetic, it was so lyrical. Amazing imagery, and very sensual. I started reading it, forgetting who the author was, but just from the lovely style, I had a feeling it was you. Thank you for the chance to read another one of your stories.

Holy crap! I am sorry, I am usually more eloquent for a Masters Of English candidate, but you just blew me away and I have yet to recover my capabilities.
Outstanding writing! Kudos.

Oh you write the damaged soul so, so well. I absolutely loved this. Your description of Essen and the monochromatic tones that pervaded the city made me think of so many places I've visited in Eastern Europe, with street after street of bland post-communist architecture and seemingly endless grey skies. It struck such a chord with me and made me feel Jasper's pain that much more deeply.
Just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

Sigh. You do the broken angst beautiful so damn well. I am once again in awe.

This story is amazing. And I can't find any goddamn words that say what I'm feeling right now. It's definitely a bit of me :D

That was beautiful. It's tragic to think he is like this after that happened to him. I feel pity for that, not over what he looks like.
My uncle is an amputee as well, so I do understand some of it, if not all. Although, that never stopped him from doing a damn thing, as he said once he got over his pity party.

I love your ability to write dark and broken. The thin rays of light, say for example a postcard with a date circled in please, stand out all the more brightly for it. You must teach me this skill. :)
Loved it, friend! -ICM
