Reviews for It's Such A Lovely Lie

This was amazing. The fact that she no longer loves Frank but cares about him enough to not want to break him make it so much more real.

'-and if he's barely getting by as a whole, he'll never make it when he's shattered.'

I looove that:D

So sad, and a bit tragic. I like it nonetheless. I love the last two paragraphs, it brings such realism to the situation. :)

Oh, this is simply beautiful. The forbidden taboo-ness of this piece is just wonderful.

Alice's determination to try keep everybody happy is heartbreaking D; The way she's trying to hold everything together... *sniffs*

Such a lovely piece.

Wow, I loved the forbidden-ness of this oneshot. The way you showed that Alice no longer had romantic feelings for Frank but still cared about him was so realistic and believable.

"Because Frank may be her husband, but even the thought of Marlene is enough to make words like marriage and husband lose any and all meaning."

I loved that part.

Great job!

Oh this was so nice. I loved how you depicted Alice- loving Marlene but also making sure Frank will be happy.

Love from,

Well, yeah I don't admit i don't like or enjoy femmslash (They make me gag a little really - I am such a conservative kind of girl) but this was very beautifully written D The lies, the secret glances - very very well done D I think this had to be my favorite line:

Telling Frank the truth, shattering his perfect world and her perfectly conceived lie, would leave him broken and fractured into a million separate pieces – and if he's barely getting by as a whole, he'll never make it when he's shattered.

I loved it D

Not long enough. ;) This was so nice and sweet and i never thought i would like this pairing. I adore the last line: "And while it's not the life she dreamed of, it's such a lovely lie." It was really well thought out and flows perfectly. Brilliant job, and like i said, it could of been longer. .

Nice. ) I rarely read femmeslash, let alone one with minor characters, but I really liked this. The way Alice is trying to hold it all together, it's just perfect.

This was so beautiful and depressing and hopeless and still so... It was beautiful. A pairing I never heard about and that made it so much more real. You see two people you know little about. Lovely. Well done!

It's great that she still cares about Frank even though she's in love with Marlene:D It was really good!

That was so beautiful and I loved it so much! Wonderful job! This is definatly (sp?) going in the C2 :D

And while it's not the perfect life she's dreamed of, it's such a lovely lie.- That was my favoutite line by the way.

Just had to mention it because it was really awesome :)

I really loved this because of her guilt over her affair with Marlene and because you showed how Alice feels perfectly - especially concerning Frank. Loved it. :)
