Marjorie, I read all the chapters again despite being a diehard fan of happy endings...
And I can only say that you surprised me again!
Wonderful job. It if I can hear Joseph's voice and feel Clarisse's pain!
Thank you so much

I also still get teary-eyed when I re-read "Ana de las Tejas Verdes." I remained dry-eyed through this chapter, only because I knew it wouldn't end well (obviously), and because I am not alone and didn't want to explain why I was crying on my keyboard. So I braced myself and, with some effort, managed to stay tear-free.
It's terribly elegant, and plausible. (It does explain why bringing their "friendship out of the shadows" would count as a proposal; as well as the look on his face when they turned from the altar.) I liked the background imagery - the wind through the leaves, the plane across the sky - and how it all happened against a strangely peaceful backdrop of ordinary things. And the last line, her "final words," were perfect.

Wow that was amazing ... heartbreaking and sad but amazing. I really liked the style like a TV script. I could picture everything happening. Poor Clarisse and Joseph! Both so stubborn and so alike. I can imagine they had arguments like that on many occasions.

Yes, I read your warning. But I'm going to need a good dose of happy if I read these too fast...

Murdock's my favorite.
This is really sad :(

O-M-G! Of all the senarios in my head that was one that never crossed my mind. Joe gay? Are you kidding me?
Amazing writing ... as always. :) But what a plot!
Looking forward to read more from you.

Oh, poor Clarisse, poor Joseph!
I can't refrain myself from reading these stories, in spite of having my heart broken for the lack of happy endings in it. I guess that's a testimony on how good of a writer you are.

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant- lost for words!
| Veve chapter 5 . 6/9/2011
What Joe gay, no way! But it was good other then that. Hope to read more.

ack! this last chapter was too coarse! I liked the dementia better!
| shhIwasn'there chapter 1 . 4/24/2011
so what happens in the end here? they just go on like that?
| Merida Hughsie chapter 4 . 3/5/2011
OMG! That was weird! For a moment I thought the chapter would be about Joe having been with a lot of women and infecting Clarisse with Aids. ... Hey idea ...
Hope you update soon again.
| Veve chapter 4 . 3/1/2011
Never took Joe for being that kind of man. But I guess it could happen.

I want to strangle him. Scratch that, I'm *going* to strangle him. Women are not that way you ***.
Oups, sorry. Little sore subject for me. Wonderful chapter even if right now I was in need of a good romance, even though I knew this would be drama, I couldn't resist reading it. You have a wonderful way with words.
(I hope that you'll soon update the elevator or International waters)

This was good, in a very disturbing way. But I guess it might be true to some men.
