I love this ending! The whole thing made me crry! Lauren and Carter forever!
| Luv2Live chapter 45 . 2/9
First off thank you so so so much. I am beyond joyed that you finished it and talk about an ending, that was a BEAST of a chapter. I loved it. It had so so much, I see what you mean about being Harry Potteresq but it wasn't bad. You totally made it work. I didn't even hate the Payson/Sasha aspect. I reflected on it and I think my hate came from the fact that Payson was clearly his favorite and at times Lauren already had to fight to get positive attention. If there was a relationship then it made it that much harder for others to get any sort of attention from him. It worked, though its still weird to me, them together. But I liked it, loved it, I swear!
Don't disappear quite yet. I'll PM you and write an obnoxiously long message in the next day or so. I'm thinking about rereading it again so I can do it all together.
Thank you so much for reading it, it is and will always be one of my absolute favorites on this site. It hasn't received the favs, reviews, likes etc that it deserves. Rarely have I come across stories where the authors do such a good job of fleshing out and bringing to live the characters. Thank you so much!

This chapter could keep going and going and I would never get sick of it. I feel like there's more I need to know. Absolutely love it all like the friendship between Austin, Lauren and Carter which has lasted all these years, sad that Payson and Lauren aren't very close anymore but it makes it realistic so I love it in its own way. Also love the children, just love everything! Thankyou thankyou thankyou for this amazing story and I'm sorry to hear you won't be writing anything else :'( but good luck and best wishes for everything you do!

I've been traveling so I haven't had the chance to read or review until now! Wow this is some great stuff! I'm totally sad Lauren and Carter broke up but I'm also sensing a reunion :)
Also, Lauren having Austin's baby?! I think it's sweet but totally was a surprise. Hopefully that all works out because I want Austin to get a baby but I still think Lauren is young and the physical restraints of a pregnancy might stop her shooting to the top in her field. I can't wait to read more about Payson too and hopefully you can add some more Kelly and Beth because I've grown fond of them too :)
Great job though I can't wait for the next chapter even though it means the end of the amazing story is closer. In the mean time I'll probably go through and reread all the previous chapters!

the 2011 Men's National Team. Danell Leyva (youngest member and all-around champ) or Jake Dalton for example. I know you can't now, but I was wondering why you didn't. I'm also pretty sure that the Hamm brothers didn't make a comeback in 2011.

I guess with your characters, you had to cut out some of the actual gymnasts, but I'm pretty sure you could've put in a lot more peo

'Sasha fractured his cheekbone'?! Are u kidding me? I SWOONED.. hehe.. Completely agree with Laurens assessment and so excited that Payson will be going back to the Rock :)
So yes, I am wholeheartedly and desperately following Paysons (and Sasha pls?) story! Thanks for a great chapter. Cant wait for the next epilogue..

Oh no! I hope Lauren and Carter find their way back to eachother because they are so cute together! Lauren should be having Carters' babies not Jack and Austins'. Please update soon!

Dagnam it! Get the next chapter up now! ;-)
| Guest chapter 44 . 9/10/2013
Yes, yes, yes! Please keep going with Payson; I absolutely love her story and would love a bit more;) hmm this Austin drama is gettin good!
| Luv2Live chapter 44 . 9/9/2013
GAH! I don't know what to say. I'm just in a bit of shock. I expected some of it but not others. Are you leading up to Sasha and Payson?

I'm glad you like tangents, their were so many things I liked I felt that if I went into paragraph form it would become very, very long. Great chapter I liked your inclusion of gymnasts injuries as it added realism to the story and is something that unfortunately happens way to often in this sport. I like that Austin found a new dream after his old (spectacular) one was achieved, he got everything he wanted and to read about that happening to a nice character is nice. His new dream is making me hungry though, wish I was a better cook. I also like the destruction of Denver Elite, this gym imploded at the Olympics and fell to ashes after, Marty became such an antagonist. Kelly suing her mother was great, knew this would come to a head now that Kelly is in a position of strength. Feel bad for Kaylie, she got the attention she so badly wanted, but it was not good attention. Lochte vs the US Gymnastics team funny. London and Rio still cute. Reading about Worlds at Antwerp, Belgium makes me want to watch that webcast now and speculate about team selection. You ended on a Carter Cliffhanger, hope he gets better so he can do great in Rio.
As for characters I would like to see more of, the inclusion of the character careers in gymnastics and after gymnastics is a fun read. It would also be great to see Jordan, a cameo appearance by Bryan, what is happening in Kelly vs controlling momster, please say Steve Tanner is not dating Emily's mom. It is publicly known Wendy tried to poison one teammate and was complicit in injuring another, how has this girl gotten by with no jail time or community service, I would sure love to read this airing of her dirty laundry (i'm sure the girls at her old gyms have some stories to tell). Wow I wrote way too much here. Looking forward to reading the next chapter.

I hope Carter heals soon and goes on to kick ass in Rio!
