An amazing story, heartbreaking as well as hopeful. I really like that Renessmee came to live with her father and grandfather. I think Bella and Esme would be at peace with the way things turned out.

Wow, just wow! I found this through a recommendation someone made, and I am so pleased they did. Beautifully written I could really feel each emotion with Carlilse, butto find both Bella and Esme were killed at hands of the Volturi - so sad.
Loved how their relationship evolved,moot knowing it was natural but neither rushing. PERFECTION!

This made me a little uncomfortable, not because of same sex, sex, but because it's Edward & Carlisle.. But the writing so so excellent, dark & raw, gut wrenching, that I can actually see this happening when all else is lost... What else would they do but turn to each other? - Wow.
I skimmed over this a while back, but just realized you're the author. Had to give it a thorough read.
Again, just, wow.

I never read Edward/Carlisle slash. For some reason it doesn't sit well with me. I don't know why I read this. May be because of Present Perfect, I don't know. But I'm glad that I did. It made me cry for yet another reason I don't understand. You are a gifted writer. I wish you all the best.

I think this is the first Carlward slash I'd read. I have a question for you my respected author - I had never had trouble picturing "either PeterFach, or no one" (no definitive face), when i read Carlisle - probably because most good Carlisle fics i'd read were canon and if they're canon then PeterFach would do. So when i read this - i WANTED to picture someone (rather than no one), but could NOT picture PeterFach here. Here's my question - do you picture PeterFach when you write Carlisle canon? what about Carlisle AU? and if not, do you imagine anyone's face at all?

Beautiful story, just beautiful.

you are one odd duck, miss giselle. There is no way I could ever have conceived of this working if I'd had a detailed summary of just the bare plot - not ever. And if anyone else tried it, it sure wouldn't have - too much maudlin, or too much squick, or too outlandish, and most likely all of that at once.
But this? It works. I can't really say much more than that; I tried, but it sounds like waffle and certainly doesn't describe this accurately.
Actually it more than works: it leaves a stupid grin on my face, the kind I get when I realize I've just had my horizons broadened. It's such a happy feeling. I know the expected reaction to having one's horizons broadened is supposed to be apprehension or even fear, but for some reason, I like this feeling.
Maybe I'm an odd duck as well. That's why I'd read a grocery list if you wrote it. Pfft, some sacrifice - your grocery list would probably turn out better than most people's best efforts!
PS: My eyes turned into little hearts at Edward's nutmeg scent (which I remember from the airport scene from Ithaca) and his cuddliness at the ballgame and the soft hair under his hood. I'm inclined to coo - and I'm not the cooing type.

well to say it was different would be saying something else but it was interesting
| Alice's White Rabbit chapter 1 . 8/5/2012
Just found this through the Carlward contest. Wow! This was incredible. At first, I thought is was just going to be another alternate ending of Breaking Dawn. Boy, was I wrong. This was such an amazing story of how love can change and evolve through such tragedy. I bawled my eyes out when I realize that both Esme and Bella were gone. How heartbreaking for Carlisle and Edward. And, for Renesmee- she basically lost both her parents and grandparents. But, the ending was beautiful. Love comes in many different ways to each person at different times.

Wow what can I say, that was my first time reading "slash" though does it really qualify as that. It just felt like love and I am in tears now.
You know SM really gave us alot to work with when she gave us these characters but I don't think anyone not even SM could have done such a beautiful job as the one you just did writing this story. Thank you for sharing your beautiful talent.

I love your precious work (I never shut up about Ithaca if anyone mentions New Moon) - but this piece was adorable. Hesitated at first - knowing how paternal your work is - but I'm glad I did. This was absolutely beautiful and unexpected despite knowing what was coming.
