Tears in my eyes right now! I really thought - and hoped - that Edward was alive. Isn't it wonderful that some amazing and unexplained things do happen? You wrote this so well - thanx!

Oh momma, I can't believe you didn't get this the first time round!
Are you ready for this? Cause there's a lot I love!
First, I love the imagery in the very first paragraph. The idea of the rocks speaking to her, telling her they would make it quick if she jumped is so powerful. The way you write is so descriptive and emotive that I can almost feel the rain lashing down around me as I read it and see the view below.
I love the idea of Edward being her childhood rescuer from Mike the bully, and that they never looked back from that, and the PB&J thing, while a completely disgusting combination (to a Brit), is completely adorable and the Goober thing at the end is just perfect. (Even though the thought of eating it makes me want to vomit!) :P
I completely adore the Emmett in this story. He is funny, light-hearted and adorable on the one hand, but when it comes down to it he is just so sweet at the end, when Bella's world has fallen apart and she needs him more than ever. "You will never be alone. Do you hear me? Never. I will be there for you and Goober every step of the way. I know it's not the same, but I promise you he will know his father, and never lack for love or attention." This line made the snotsobbing so much worse!
He's probably been a little bit on the outside looking in with Bella and Edward's close friendship for all those years, but he is loyal to a fault and obviously cares very much for both of them. Have I told you lately that I love Emmett? 'Cause I do... A lot!
Their first time together, in the back of the car was so sweet. I love that it wasn't this perfect moment when the earth moved and everything was exactly as it is in the movies. They were inexperienced and it was sticky and awkward, but they loved each other and that was what mattered. Just perfect!
This line "No survivors. There was no surviving without him. There would be one more no survivor tonight." Absolutely floored me. I don't know why, but it brings a tear to my eye every time I read it!
You have dipped to new levels of evil with the making me think he was alive after all and then tearing it away again! You are the queen of making me snot sob! (Both through your writing and through saying goodbye at airport gates! :P)
I just love love LOVE this whole thing and it was such an honour to beta it for you! A master-class in writing. Truly! xxx

OMG, I'm a sobbing mess!

oh gosh..i can't stop crying! it's soo sad. a life was taken much too soon. and bella's sadness and heartbreak and pain. i can't even begin to imagine what that feels like. poor girl...
this is a really good story. and if you can't let these kids go, maybe you can write a story with an alternate ending...like, he is actually alive and saves her in the nick of time, and they go on to raise their boy together... maybe? hopefully? this story wasn't long, but i am already so in love with this edward and bella... i want to see their story continue, but with a happier ending...

Just wanted you to know you packed a lot into this story!
| ShearEnvy chapter 1 . 10/20/2010
Just so you know, this wonderful little o/s of yours got both Khar and me teary as we read it...and that really doesn't happen much. For that alone you deserved an honorable mention, but on top of that, this was really a beautiful story. I'm so glad you decided to take the time to write and submit this to our contest and I hope to see you continue on. Thanks so much! :o)
