This is probably my favorite piece of fringe writing out there, and I've read most of the stories on this site.
You capture both of them so well, and the perspective you provide is something we didn't get too see as much of on the show. I like that you didn't leave it all rainbows and sunshine, but stayed more towards the characters and left it optimistically open-ended.
Seriously, I've read this like five times and love it more each time.
Great job :)

I love that the end is hopeful, that they have not solved their problems, but are on their way towards it. It was beautifully written, all the different feelings and the heart-break. It was incredible, you are an amazing writer. I enjoyed reading this tremendously, it was fantastic! You captured their characters perfectly!

Oh gosh, I love this. The way you move from frustration, guilt, anger, and pain to affection, comfort, and hope is just lovely.
I also really adored this thought: "His Olivia had been fighting for her life while he'd been playing house with her evil twin." I could just feel how that thought must've just gutted Peter.
And then, the way he cupped her cheek and she leaned into him and he said alot of what needed to be said and the part about how she got the timeline wrong. Awww!
So sweet and lovely.

You are a fantastic writer. It was the characterizations, the descriptions and details, etc. Thank you for sharing this piece. It was a pleasure to read.

:D YAY! Happy ending! I love happy endings!

For all that the story line has taken a different turn, this is still a wonderful 'what might have been' piece. Love your writing style, love that you have their 'voices' down so well.

I absolutely loved it! Post-Marionette fics are my new crack, and this one is one of the best :)

Am I allowed to say this probably the best thing I've ever read? Because I honestly think it is. I think this may be better at making me feel better than any medicine or soup can. Just... WOW. I like how you ended it where they aren't back together yet, they aren't perfect, but there's the smallest glimmer of hope that they will. Beautifully written. 3

Can this happen in the show? Can it? Because I would PAY for it!
Oh, how I love your writing of Olivia and Peter. It's just so perfect.
And I think my favorite part of this is how you highlight that Liv isn't the only one going through hell. We've just now seen what all the stress has done to Peter last week. But I adore how you illuminate how much heartbreak Peter has had to have been going through.

Incredible! It was perfect.

Simply incredible. You not only captured Olivia's pain so well that I felt it, but Peter's as well. I really hope the show takes a leaf out of your book and that their continued recovery goes something like this, because this is a perfect for them.

I loved every word of this. I quite enjoyed how you manged to make this not just, pro Olivia, or pro Peter, but pro both of them. You pointed out how both of them are in pain, and the consequences it has had on them. I thought one of the most heart-wrenching ones, was how Peter would remember memories with Altlivia,and how in the end, you didn't make Peter sleep in the bed with her, the symbolism is lovely: they're not whole yet, but they're getting there. ) thank for writing this awesome piece.

LOVED this! So beautifully written, and completely in character, and it broke my heart for both of them. As I got near the end I wondered if it could wrap up with a happy ending (or at least not depressing) in the short space that was left, and you completely did. I think this is my favorite post-Marionette fic I've read.

You're right not to have split it up: the flow was really good. I admire the architecture of this story, actually, because it moves even when there doesn't seem to be anything happening, and I'm reading and all of sudden it's like, breaths in the dark, so sweet. I like that there isn't any magical problem resolution, and I like how Peter reframes her insecurities with his 'timeline' explanation. And that they're in her apartment again! New memories ftw!
