As always, I'm so glad to have read this, and so sad to see it go. My favorite part of the chapter was this exchange:
""Well, that depends," he drawled and leaned in closer, raising his eyebrows. "How many years are you planning on giving me?"
"How many do you want?"
Emmett's hand moved to her neck, his thumb stroking the skin just below her jaw. "All of them.""
Just so sweet that I can't even handle it gaaahhhhhh! Anyway, until next time! Love you, Jess, I hope you
know that I'm your biggest fan 3

WOOT! A perfect ending to a lovely love story. This was great: "She caught Kate's teasing smile as she disappeared. They probably looked a little ridiculous out here, running up and down the length of the backyard, teasing and flirting and making all kinds of noise. But her heart was full and she was happy and she could tell by the wide grin on Emmett's face that he was, too. Not much else mattered." I love that they got the play like this, and keep the tradition alive for Emmett's grandpa. Gorgeous x

I am so proud of Alice for buying her own condo and screwdriver :)
And Emmett at the batting cages :) so hot and I'm so glad he stopped overthinking about the Rose/Lily thing
Can't wait to read the epilogue and we will talk soon :)

I loved both chapters. I was afraid for a moment that Em would freak out and do something stupid. I'm glad he was able to step back and realize that it wasn't a bad thing for himself to be that open with one person...that Rose was just as open with him. They were both able to see the good and bad in each other and still want the other. That is what makes a good relationship. I can't believe it's almost over. It's so sad

I love how Alice's victory brought Emmett what he needed to finally decided he could just roll with his relationship with Rose.

Awwww, I knew you two would have it worked out perfectly.
I like how he had faults, just like everyone else.
I'm gonna miss them and you two writing together. It always flows so smoothly when you pair up.
Looking forward to the epi, but sad it is done.

And copied from H's.
Wow. Nice save Em and completely awesome in the context of the story. I like how you brought it back to their first meeting and the movie and baseball analogies were flawless. And I'm glad you didn't draw it out - that they came back together and worked things out. Thanks for sharing this lovely ride and I'm sad to see them go. -b

Ahh, so she did put it together. Smart girl... And ARGH! I'm so so so glad that I have that little "next" button there... I had a feeling Em might freak out a little, but a few days? No, my man, don't do this to her. Or yourself. Sad panda... Ok, clicking away. -b
| bmango chapter 11 . 2/19/2011
Yay for realizations and confessions and finally getting to home... :)
I love this line: "She didn't try to fix him or placate him, and by doing so, she simply made him better, something no one else had ever had the time or the power to do." It's sort of what I was trying to say last chapter - that she just let him be him. And that's the best part of everything.
So...he mentioned Whitman and Neruda there at the end...did Rose pick up on it? Will Lily and Mac meet? So curious. Oh! And look! Another chapter! :) -b

Copied this from H's...
I love that Emmett was able to open up so much to Rose (that he allowed himself to say something to anyone) and that she was able to just listen and be there for him, to be someone he could lean on... And, jesus, the UST is killing me, but I love the way it's playing out. Great chapter! -b

( ( ( Emmett) ) ) I'm just glad he figured it out quickly. Loved the interaction btwn siblings, and as always love the ruminations on baseball and life.
I was surprised that Rose seemed so nervous (for lack of a better word) when she met him- I'd have thought that his message to Lily would have set her at ease as far as his decision went, but I guess, like Em, she was protecting her heart.

LOVED IT SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH, PLZ PLZ PLZ WRITE SOON.
| Alby Mangroves chapter 13 . 2/18/2011
*sigh* This whole chapter was perfect. I loved this: "It wasn't until their second drink that they even touched, and that was as simple as holding hands." I can see them sitting there, talking about their lives... only the epi left? *sad panda*

GAH THIS "After reading the message again, Rosalie picked up her phone and went to her recent calls, staring at Emmett's name. It was right at the top. She wanted to call him and tell him what she'd discovered, that out of all the people in this city – god, the world – they'd found each other not once but twice. How, despite the fact that this was crazy and weird and a little scary, it was also amazing."
And the WAAAH Emmett, how could you! Get your shit together and chase after her! *hearts* ladies, Love your work x
