| Guest chapter 1 . 4/27
I love this. I love the prequel and I loved this.
When I saw the trigger warning on the prequel, I didn't think any of it. But when I kept reading... god, I almost cut at three in the morning for the first time. So, I warn you guys, if ANY of you are self harmers or depressed or suicidal, DONT READ THE BEGINNING OF THESE STORIES. You could read the end, if you want to know what happens, but if these stories will trigger you, I BEG YOU NOT TO READ THEM. They are really powerful and this story may encourage you to do pretty bad things...
For anyone who isn't struggling with an addiction such as this or a mental disorder such as depression, I'm pretty sure you'll shed a few tears when reading this, but it is an overall good story. This author, foraworldundeserving, has written such good stories, and this is among my favorites. He/she has such a way with words, and this story, as well as its prequel, will be sure to hit a nerve.
About overcoming an addiction caused by the pain this unforgiving world can cause and love overseeing all odds, these stories will surely intrigue you if you like Klaine and a bit (a lot) of angst.

I just wanted to thank you for this. I don't cut enough to bleed, but I scratch myself until I feel the skin beginning to break so that I can keep it a secret. Nobody knows, so I decided to keep my review anonymous, but I just needed to thank you for this.

Hi. This was amazing, as per usual for your stories.
I wish you all the best in your recovery. You are amazing and I hope you recover.

Both the first story and now the sequel were amazing. Sad, but amazing.

*ugly sobbing* Why are you so good at sucker punching me in the gut with all these feelings?

I'm obviously strange because I find comfort in reading this sort of story, partly because, y'know, it's nice to think that one day my girlfriend will be over here (she lives in America, long-distance relationship) and if/when I relapse she'll be able to help me like this, and also it's kind of good in a way to realise that I'm not the only one going through this. It's also bad, because it's horrible that other people feel like this, but, I don't know, I find it comforting in a weird way to see that other people have the problem of relapsing, even if you have a significant other or you've promised not to. I'm rambling now, but I hope you get what I mean. -gives lots of hugs- Also, thank you for writing this, because you're write and self-harm does get swept under the rug a lot. I haven't been struggling with it for anywhere near long as you, only 2 years or something I think (I don't even remember any more) but yeah.
... I'll stop now, I guesssss?

I loved this. You really got all the panic and hurt in this story perfectly and it's amazing. So good! :)

| Thaliana chapter 1 . 1/21/2012

Whenever someone relapses, being me or someone else I see it as a bump in the road to recovery. All that needs to be done is pave over that bump and keep going, just like Kurt said. Keep moving forward.

That was beautifully written. Thank you.

So I just left a review on the McKinley Singing Experience and I accidentally submitted it partway and found out the hard way that you can't edit/delete a submitted review. Harumph. So I'll continue it here...
...I also read Slice and Relapse and I wanted to hug you. Obviously we've never met and you have no idea who the freak I am because this is my first time reviewing one of your stories, but as I say, I've been reading them almost nonstop for 6 days now and, even just through your author's notes, I feel like I know you. Obviously I don't know you at all so I almost feel presumptuous saying it that way, but I can't explain it. I had my first kiss the other day, but it was someone who I wasn't at all attracted to, and I don't know how to break it to him that I don't feel the same way about him as he does about me. Of course this has caused me a lot of stress over the past couple of days and despite numerous long discussions with my friends and parents, I'm still not sure what I'm going to do and it has left me feeling stretched to breaking point. I can't tell you how lucky I feel to have found your stories before this whole experience. I feel really pathetic complaining about it to you when clearly you have struggled with much more than I have and it's really a trivial problem, but there is a point, I swear! Your stories have been the best therapy I could have possibly asked for. Settling down to another amazing yet heartbreaking chapter of Straight Camp or reading Slice and Relapse and realizing that it the grand scheme of things, although my problems are tearing me up inside, I am actually incredibly lucky that this is the worst of my problems. I want to thank you for that. I know you struggle with self-harm, and as Blaine and Kurt show in this story, sometimes it can all feel like it's just too much to take. Although me saying this probably won't change anything, please know how much you've changed people's lives, even just through . Although I am straight, I too have always been very pro-gay and have done my best to show that I am here for everyone, no matter their sexuality (or their race, religion or ANYTHING else, for that matter!) That being said, your story about Kurt and the Trevor hotline touched me so much and left me just wanting to help anyone struggling with those problems. You have touched so many lives (11,000 reviews on Kiss and many, many more unreviewing readers like me!), whether it be through your author's notes or your message at the end of the story about Trevor. If you feel like you're not good enough or no one likes you, please realize that this isn't true. So many people look up to you, so thank you for everything you've done!
This review was very tangential and very, very serious-I promise I'm normally even crazier than you ;) However, I hope it shows you, in my very unclear and muddled way, that I love your stories and absolutely worship your writing abilities. Keep up the AMAZING work! :)
