I find it interesting that you put Cheerios in the story. So, they are famous...hm...wonder why I never knew about them ebfore I saw them in a shop and hoped they were another kind of cereals. Don't know how anyone can be a fan of the taste. I mean they taste like this rice plates they sell in shopes, which in turn teaste like cardboard...
Well, Cheerios are at least sugared cardboard...not that that improves the taste any...

So, there was the freak out I was expecting
| Amu4ever chapter 29 . 2/6
You know I always thought concussions are the first thing a doctor has to check after a patient wakes up from head injury induced unconsciousness.
Carlisle didn't bother with that at all. He just let her stand up after he cleaned up her wounds. Shouldn't she be dizzy at least? After all she did loose a lot of blood.
And what about her problem with blood? Is she over it in your story due to the extrem exposure to it in her childhood?

She does realize that Jacob was the one, who MADE the sauce, yes? :D

Hehehe...I find your version of Bella so funny :D
Oh and I have to admit that I am a bit envious about your ability to write so naturally. It's astounding how you do that you suck your reader right up in the story... (Though I guess that's something you can improve with training...right? right?!)
-dreamy sigh- You are so coool! - I do adore you as an author. You do a wonderful job! If you ever write a book, let me know, so I can buy it! (Well, if it's a fantasy romance and you don't start using someone like Edward as main character...though your Eward is one of the few - or may be the only one? - that I like...)

Wow. This story is now ranked firmly in my top 2 favorite Bella/Carlisle fics!
There are so few stories I have come across in this fandom that are this well put together. I imagine a lot of research went into this because a wide variety of subject matter has been so carefully fleshed out with so much detail throughout the course of this.
I appreciated the dignity with which you handled the more controversial subjects, never treating it too casually but yet injecting enough lighter moments to make it palatable for even us more emotional creatures. And frankly, I think everyone on earth should have the benefit of Jasper as a therapist.
I am impressed with the overarching themes in this story. The fact that Bella was able to not only forgive her father, but to welcome him as a part of her immortal world and in a position of power, no less. It most definitely speaks to her character. The fact that the vampires and wolves so thoroughly bridged the species gap, becoming so much more to one another than mere allies, it was a beautiful progression to witness.
And the fact that in spite of being mates in the traditional vampiric sense, bonded in love for eternity, Carlisle and Bella still had to work hard at their relationship the way any human couple would, was both relatable and refreshing. Unlike in so many stories where the mates find each other and everything comes together for them so easily, it was intensely beautiful to watch them as they ultimately took two steps forward for every one back on their good days, while the reverse seemed to be true on their bad days. And yet, they persevered.
Your story may have been 111 chapters, but I assure you that each of them was so well written that they simply breezed by, leaving the reader in want of more.
Lastly but most definitely not least, I appreciatedon't the balance you kept, injecting sufficient faith based and biblical themes in a way that was subtle enough not to be off putting to those for whom religion is a touchy subject. I envy your ability to do so because I personally struggle with that myself. Sadly I have historically failed to give due glory to the Lord in my writing for fear of coming across as' too preachy'. Hopefully after how successfully you have tackled the task, maybe I can learn to do the same.
