random thought: how did i completely miss that esme was edward and alice's step mom?
relevant thought: this story has made it into my top 10 favorite fan fictions. and i've been reading fan fiction for a decade. thank you so much. i can't wait to read this again and again (and again).

ah hah! so it was suicide! i knew it.
i love how carlisle and esme are asses in this story. a nice chance from the usual.
im so scared for how things are gonna go at edward's congressional investigation hearings. he should be able to get a good plea deal at the very least. also nervous about how rose will react to the fact that emmett broke the story. if edward tells her he wanted it to happen hopefully she wont be too angry at emmett
also wondering how bella will manage once/if edward gets imprisoned. so sad for him to have to go just as they've reconnected. even if only temporarily.

ohhh so not suicide! running away incognito! i wonder how this will bode for edward and the story breaking. it cant be anything good. i really hope they catch him
| dormirais chapter 13 . 10/18
there's a gun or some other method of suicide in the briefcase

the story just keeps getting better and better. it's a full on melodrama and i'm obsessed. i don't like watching soaps but god do i love reading them. especially when they're this incredibly written.
"and LexisNexis was always right". as a law student, i firmly concur!

the sleeping scene bw rose and bella made me tear up. i cannot WAIT for emmett and rose to meet. it'll be chaos and then it'll be perfect. neither of them will know what hit them.
as predicted jacob won't let go and is doing the very annoying entitled man thing of thinking he's exactly what bella needs bc she apparently doesn't have a mind/opinion of her own. true, bella should have walked away the moment she knew he loved her, or perhaps shouldnt have used him to heal her edward pain in the first place, but his entitlement over her is ridiculous. (and so is edward's and his thinking that jacob is obviously hurting her and that he can demand she stop when he left her 10 years ago and cut off contact, doing much worse re hurting her and her knows nothing about she and jacob's situation. also this is peak angstward). amazing how the story is completely different from canon plot wise, but characterization wise the three of them retain their moral flaws, individually and with respect to each other, down to a T. im so impressed

good god. what a fantastic chapter. starting with the rape warning. thank you for that, not enough authors use it.
i have no idea what's going on and i love it. so edward works as ...and investment banker or something? for the delani group?
rose is a boss as bitch and i love her. and i want rocye gutted. and what's this of edward being a survivor? im assuming that's not meant metaphorically. did tanya sexually abuse him? eleazer? did eleazor whore him out? whatever it is it's going to be stomach churning. im so sorry for him and rose.
also scared jacob wont be able to let bella go. and proud of bella for letting edward know what the fuck is up. i hate a spineless bella

ive always wanted a walk in closet to hide in. and i hate jasper. and i have no idea what's going on between edward learning his parents invested everything in ezikeal's business that for some reason cause him to be his puppet, and ezikeal cooking the books of said business. but i like the mystery. i also like my mafia/mob theory. maybe with a specialty in loan sharking

im confused. in the first chapter bella was thinking about how she loved being with jacob bc the wave of orgasms that came after resisting for a long time punishment made her mind blank/made her feel mentally strong. effectively numbing her to the pain of her edward trauma or whatever. but in this chapter jacob sees / thinks that she's been satisfied by resisting climax. so which is it? and he thinks that she subs bc she craves humiliation and suffering, period. but she thinks she subs bc the mentally mastering the humiliation and suffering makes her feel in control of her...pain from the edward trauma? the psychology of this is befuddling. not individually. but together. bc im not sure who's reasoning to believe-bella or jacob's. like is bella lying to herself and jacob seeing through it? or is jacob projecting?

What in the fresh hell. I came here for dickward and get jerksper too? Idk man. Obviously I’ve no background but I’m disgusted with him and can’t understand how Alice is planning to forgive him. Unless she’s done something(s) equally messed up to him. If not...cut his sorry ass lose girl. Also the confederate obsession is gross. People like that love to undermine what it was that side was fighting for. And the answer isn’t “states rights”. But it’s no more gross than canon glorifying jasper being an actual former confederate soldier. Peek Mormonism

hot damn. this is the exact kind of story i was looking for. dickward redemption arcs with extra angst. my guilty pleasure. though i gotta say, idk how he'll weasel his way out of this one. and by that i mean idk how he'll do so to get my personal forgiveness, since bella always forgives in the end. must have been some fucked up shit in his family holding the sword of Damocles over his head. like a betrothal. the mob?mafia?

boy can you pack a chapter...and still with the canon references reinvented!
| kezcullen chapter 7 . 4/23
wow,...just wow. i think i must not be alone in saying i have no idea in the wide world why anyone wants to be a sub...
| kezcullen chapter 4 . 4/23
totally loving how you are reusing the canon! clever writing!
| kezcullen chapter 1 . 4/22
wow that was some first chapter! i cannot imagine how edward could possibly get himself out of that one but doubtless you do. at least this explains in a far more realistic way why bella believes that edward wants no future with her. yee ha!
