This has been one of my favorite JJ/Emily stories yet. It makes you uncomfortable but too uncomfortable that you have to stop reading and I think that’s important, especially in this day and age. There were several times I would laugh and my roommate asked me what I was laughing at. There were times when I wanted to cry too. I know it’s been over two years since you last added a chapter to this fan fiction, but if you decided to write more, I’ll be here to read it!

TT This story is very powerful, and it helps give me strength. Sexual assault isn't talked about enough and often, it isn't dealt with properly, where instead of blaming the monster, they blame the victims. I like reading and rereading this story because it's so powerful and gives me hope.

I absolutely love the story I love the depth of characters and all the different things you've had them go through both together and individually to come to this point. The only thing I have to question is will there be more?
Thanks for sharing!

I've been engaged with you story thus far. The abuse and aftermath were hard, but it got Emily and JJ together. Yet the thing that bothered me was your choice to have Emily express guilt and shame about abortion. She logically chose to not have a kid at 15 and now she's choosing to continue her pregnancy when the morning after pill didn't work and she can financially and emotionally care for a child even if it's from rape. I just hope the anti-abortion rhetoric doesn't continue. It would be better for Emily to act from a positive as to why she wants a child than out of a negative. She's a strong person and a feminist so I not enamored with her choice being centered on not facing abortion; that reasoning seems faulty and frankly pisses me off as she fought torture but catholic guilt does her in, ewww. It just doesn't fly for me.

Sweet! Loved the proposition you created, it was very well thought of. Nice work.

The fact that JJ was willing to put herself in front of a bullet to protect Emily says a lot about the connection they share. Thank goodness they're both okay though.

Uh oh...I didn't like the ambassador telling Emily that JJ was taking advantage of her. That just felt so wrong...
