| Bell 1 chapter 25 . 2/11
I am saddened that you never planned to make this a HEA, but what I don't understand is...
If Bella was his imprint and he was supposed to be everything she needed, why WOULDN'T he, or ANY of the pack/imprints, especially Paul (if not Embry), have thought to LEARN the things necessary to help Bella get better? What do I mean by that?
Well, everyone kept trying to get Embry to take Bella to a hospital, so why couldn't someone have learned how to help her? Taken classes, HECK, even read books that could help them to get Bella better.
I also don't understand why Bella COULDN'T get better. She was 18 with a mind of a child. Well, children's minds are ever learning, ever developing, and ever growing. In a hospital, they would not only have been helping her to get past her grief, fear, and emotional trauma, but a GOOD hospital would have also been teaching her to take care of herself and live in the world (including educating her in reading, sign language, etc.).
It wouldn't have been a quick, overnight change, but she definitely could have changed. I understand you did your research, but I also know, based on my own learning on trauma, or abuse victims, that they can get past it and grow... especially with so much love and caring surrounding them. For example, take this chapter (10 years later)... Bella could have been more like a ten or twelve year old had one of the pack, or Embry learned how to help someone traumatized.
Then ten years later, she could have been in a state of mind to be able to have and understand an adult relationship (like an 16 or 18 year old). Also, there is still a possibility of her and Embry having a family, but not a strong one, or at least if they did, Bella may not be able to care for a child. That may be put on Embry to raise their child.
Take Helen Keller as an example, a deaf, blind person that most thought there was no hope. Helen was isolated because others didn't know how to communicate with her, thereby lack of language. Her mother did everything she could to help her daughter, which brought Anne Sullivan to them when she was seven. Helen knew even less language, having been less than 2 years old when she lost her sight and hearing, than Bella would have at age five. With Anne's help, Helen became an author and acquired a Bachelor of Arts Degree. Helen also had people that loved her and she loved surrounding her.
All I'm saying is that it is possible. Bella could have definitely grown and learned to live past all of that, if one of the pack learned (such as Paul, or even Sam) to take on a role of a doctor, while she had someone that loved her so much (Embry and even the pack) to be there to help her through everything. Basically, Bella could definitely have learned, developed, and grown past the mindset of a five year old, but her mental state would never be equal to her physical age, she would definitely have been about 10-15 year younger mentally than physically.
Though I get it, in a way, I want to throttle the pack/imprints and especially Embry's mother for pulling away from them, especially Embry... thus making him an outsider more than a member of the pack. I'm also angry at Paul, though I can't completely be angry at him because the imprint would have changed him again, making him do as Rachel wanted and pulling away.
Even though we disagree on the outcome of this story and Bella, I am NOT disappointed I read it. All in all, this was a well done and interesting story. THANK YOU for sharing it with us. :D

This is sad
| Guest chapter 25 . 12/27/2013
Wow. This is so incredibly sad. I like the concept of the story but in all honesty, it would have been so much better if she could eventually lead a more productive life with her mate. This is completely unfair and unrealistic for Embry. At least with Claire she will eventually be able to have a "normal" relationship with Quil. This is just...I don't know...sad.

So... Let me start in pieces
1. How you didn't pass up bathroom, nudity, and blood in the beggining was just genius. I just feel like people don't even think about it. That was just very skilled writing
2. Paul in love, billy finding she was Bella, Quil being an idiot... You are such a fun writer! you had me completely engaged the WHOLE time! Excellent!
3. The ending... I won't lie. I am severely disappointed. I understand not have a fairy tale ending, but I feel like you forgot the tone of the story. It was just very... Depressing and neutral. Sounds like no one cares about her anymore. But Embry... But even then he didn't even sound happy or in love really "this is my life". That sorta sucked. He didn't seem happy. And are they not sexually active then? She wants to be- so does he. I realize that it's not a perfect situation but it is also a different one. I don't know... It just wasn't very true to the story. You should write an alternative ending? Did you get bored of the story and end it? It felt like there could be so much more... And you never really resolved the whole Quil friendship thing either. And Anywhos... She remembered. And she was always learning. There was no reason for no happy ending. And it's all magicy and imprinty, anything is possible. I was so invested and now I'm just depressed... Write an alternative ending!
I'm being really harsh. I know. You actually are an outstanding writer and a gifted story teller. I haven't read anything that has captured me this much in like... Ever. And You're the author. You can do whatever you want with your story. You wanted an unhappy ending. That's your choice. I'm it's to happy with it! Hahaha
