Cried a river here. And a creek or two at the end...I wish your story was imagination, but unfortunately the 'Alec's' of the world are all too real! Love your treatment of the trauma, and of the resolution here.

No matter how many times I read this story, I love it all the more!

Just wanted to return "to the scene of the crime" so to speak and remind myself how it all began; not Jasper's fuckery when he walked out on the love of his life, but the very beginning when Edward took Jasper's hand in his, so here is another "older" offering of the music I think of for the boys. Of course they are much younger than me, but hey it's my soundtrack and just as you play in SM sandbox with her characters to create a storyline, I play in the sandbox of the composers of the various soundtracks, cause honestly, with few excepts I hate the soundtracks, not the scores, mind you, just the songs. Without further ado, here is one of the songs on "my" soundtrack to this story, Moment to Moment by Johnny Mathis "From moment to moment every moment that I live, I live for every moment with you..." Imho, this does justice to the beginning of them.

This is just awesomely lovely, I did forget however, that Jasper is estranged from his father very sad, not at all unusual for gay men. But just btwn you and me, someone should have taught the boys about knocking on closed doors before entering

Hi hon, loved that a whole lot, here is my song for the beginning when they find out they are having sons, Beautiful Boy by John Lennon (written for his son Sean, who only had his father for about 7 yrs before his dad was murdered) The rest, I didn't look for anything else, cause truth to be told, I am 70 and I love the older songs, although do adore and have "played" Halo in my mind reading many slash fan fictions, and takes me time to run through my "downloads" as Jasper says, as to what is appropriate in my mind. Okay, I finally remembered what I was looking for, it is from the Led Zeppelin II album, Thank You. Sorry it does refer to a woman, but I still love the rest of the lyrics for the boys. "When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me...Your hand in mine we'll walk the miles, for you to me are the only one..." Thanks it's great, but I am really going to smack Jasper for complaining at the tender age of 28 of being an old man, they met when they were 16 right and this is about 12 yrs later, Jasper honey, you don't know what old is, lol

Well I went with Halo for a while there, but then switched again to You Are So Beautiful. I clicked on the first video not realizing that it was cut short, so the next meaning on this page, I chose the second video, and low and behold (this is for the bathtub scene when they are making love, cause honey, ya scared the shit out of me when Jazz was in that cloud of steam afraid that Edward was gonna go back into his fear laden state) so thought I'd share this with you, so long but fits your lovely chapter so much. "You are so beautiful to me, you are so beautiful to me, can't you see, you're everything I hoped for, you're everything I need. Such joy and happiness you bring, such joy and happiness you bring, like a dream guiding a light that shines in the night, heaven's gift to me, you are so beautiful to me." love ya babe. *sigh* my boys are back

Omg, love, love, love Mrs, Sweeney, Sally, she is lovely and just what sweet sad beautiful Edward needed to hear, words of wisdom from a straight old woman, does he still make you drunk? oh, my does he ever, this was lovely, this is like the heavens, or the universe or whatever directed them to this b and b. And yeah, I had a song in mind, few words don't exactly fit, but they are for the most part, true for Edward, his walls came tumbling down... loved this so much. I hope this is on the way to ending the angst, because I don't know if my heart can take much more of their pain, and frankly I just don't look pretty like Edward does, when I've been crying
Rachel garber chapter 22 . 2/18/2014
That ended beautifully, but the beginning when Jasper was on the floor before, In Dreams by Roy Orbison came to mind, not that Jasper thinks Edward has left him, but emotionally, because of the trauma he suffered, he feels that he has lost Edward. Morning comes and they take a shower together, nothing sexual just them being together, and so You Are So Beautiful To Me by Joe Cocker This is truly difficult for me to read, my heart is breaking for these beautiful boys, so in love and so destroyed by a sexual predator
Rachel Garber chapter 21 . 2/18/2014
Well, I started out with Only You by The Platters and segued to I'm So Excited by the Pointer Sisters, but ended with Dust in the Wind by Kansas. I know that this is not the end for the boys, but I think perhaps Jasper may feel that way right now. This is so tragic, I feel so badly for these lovely men, I have a lump in my throat for them, for what they are going through right now. I can't write anymore right now.
Rachel Garber chapter 20 . 2/17/2014
That sweet innocent boy is on his way to healing, I like to make up my own soundtrack for some ffn, and for this ch I chose Morning Has Broken by Cat Stevens as they were walking through the forest to the fall, played it two or three times, and for the scene where they were eating lunch and then making love, I played Annie's Song by John Denver, despite the title there is no reference to gender in the song. Have to go to bed now, it is 1:26 am, but I will be back to see how our boys are doing, glad Edward decided he does need therapy once again, you rock
Rachel Garber chapter 19 . 2/17/2014
This is a horror story, I can't believe what that poor boy is going through, so glad they beat the shit out of Aro, and got him to sign his resignation and his confession. I feel so sad for both of them, but I think Jasper's idea is an excellent one, and I guess my mental picture of Edward would be when he is in Volterra, preparing to defy Aro, fitting I think. Bless dear Jasper
Rachel Garber chapter 18 . 2/17/2014
That is so beautiful there was a wedding in another E and J slash, but it was never described, just as the story progressed disclosed that they were married this was so lovely, the proposal, announcing the changing of names to their family the vows were so lovely, I was crying for the first time not because of angst but because the chapter was so lovely, amazing, joyful awesome, just tugged at my heartstrings. Just wow
Rachel Garber chapter 17 . 2/17/2014
I had to fight with Internet Explorer wanting to upgrade while I was trying to find I Was Born To Love You by Freddie Mercury while reading this, this was so totally awesome, this was amazingly beautiful, still listening to it a second time, I was crying while reading the last few paragraphs, Edward taking Jasper's hand and placing it over his heart, this is one of the best I have read so far. I am going to be starting a fb group with slash links and I plan to post this one. They will all be Edward and Jasper slash, because that is the only slash I will read, this was beyond beautiful. There was some angst, but unlike angst in other slash, it was exteriorly driven, with just that little bit at the very beginning between E and J. The others are angsty because the men are broken, and some of them are so damaged the angst draws out for several chapter. I don't mind them, but it was nice to read one where the boys seem to have it together before their relationship begins, thus not tormenting themselves and each other.
