All I can say is BRILLIANT! Beautiful story, love, well developed characters, emotions, everything. The best story I've ever read. You scared me when you mentioned you were breaking canon and I thought BRITTANA was no longer but I should have known they are always endgame. thanks so much:)

Is it possible to literally fall in love with a story? Cause I think I just did with this.
Absolutely mind-blowing how well you wrote this. The way you wrote the characters is the way I would think of them actually acting and reacting and stuff in the show. You also did a beautiful job with details in the story, to the point where I would feel for the characters, and imagine exactly what they did or how they felt. Absolutely amazing. Thank you for writing this! 3

This has got to be THE best Glee fanfic I have ever read. I've read it over and over and over again.. Wow, seriously where can I buy your book?

My favorite quote from this story is: You want the viscera. The blood – my blood – poured out, so willingly and graciously given. I offer it to you, and hope that might take from it strength.
It gives me so many feels, I can't even describe.
This story is so fantastically written and well thought out. I applaud you. No other has been able to really touch my heart so profoundly. It's perfect.

Your writing is intensely analytical, and that's not something I regularly find in stories. It fits though. You did a really good job. When you read a story all out, it's hard to really say everything there is to say, but, I think I'll try.
The drug addiction Brittany had seems to have fueled the stories plot just as much as her love for Santana did. But as I see it, there was probably a lot to be told for her recovery, and honestly that is probably where there was more story to be told that was merely brushed past in the epilogue. I understand that the story would have dragged on forever if you really when on with this, and that is something you probably didn't want to do, but there are certain things that I felt just got brushed underneath the carpet - like how she managed to reconnect with Santana, or how she came to terms with who she was. I get it though: that could have been a whole other story and what you dealt with in this story was just as crucial.
Next, while you were dealing mainly with Brittany and her character, I feel like you missed a lot of opportunities with the growth of Santana. I know that everything was through the eyes of Brittany, but I feel like Santana's changes could have been addressed a little more heavily. Then again, you've already created one fantastically dynamic character and I think you might have put us into overload if you had managed two.
I feel like I'm tearing you down in this review, but I don't really want to come across that way. This story is one of the few that actually touches on something that I actually find easy to get lost pondering and thinking about - and that to me is always the primary goal of telling a story. If it doesn't make you react to the situations and try and work out the situations in you head and why the character act the way they do it's falls flat. You've managed to make the story so very human and it's incredible.
Alright, I'm going to go sleep. 5 am is not a time to be reading stories - no matter how incredible they happen to be. I honestly wish I had found this sooner, because I just adore the story. Thank you for writing it and posting it for us.
