|Reviews for It's Your Song That Sets Me Free|
| tweetyviolet chapter 17 . 2/17
I cried to an unscalable degree during this story, especially during the video montage of Noah's song to Rachel. It was honest to Noah's character (he's strong but not invincible) and still highlighted the other gleeks. This wasn't just a fanfiction, it was a journey of hatred and pain and hope(lessness). It killed me inside to know what would happen to Noah, but at the same time, it was the very best start to a new story for the gleeks that remained. Thank you for creating this.

i don't think I've ever cried so much & got a headache. this is the only story i can say that I've cried through all the chapters of it.

I started this story st about 8:30 pm ish and finished it at 12:15am... and thought that WHOLE time... I cried... I used a whole roll of toilet paper and blew my nose so many times it's raw. I have a headache from hell and my eyes are so sore it hurts to blink... but... that was probably the best angst I've read. I'm not big on angst but when I read it I want the best and honey... that's the best. Good job at making me literally stop reading and just cry for 30 minutes...not joking or flaming... just thank you!

I wish I could say I hate this story because of the ending, but its imposible to hate something so moving and beautifully written. Honestly this was the only way for it to end.
You just KNEW the outcome but you still hoped when you come across a scene where it looked like Puck was getting better and moving forward. It made it that much more difficult to see him crash again and again. The part when he can no longer hear her voice and starts BEGGING for her to come back left me a mess. It was a good few minutes before I could start reading again.
I was raised to believe that anybody who took their own lives wouldn't get into Heaven, but it would be just too cruel to force someone to stay living when its clear they aren't anything more than a shell.
I quite liked how Kurt handled the situation, he wouldn't outright stop Puck from ending it, but he was going to at least try to change his mind. Really what can you say to someone so broken by the loss of their other half that they lose EVERYTHING.
And to think it was all because of bullying taken too far, all because ONE student was so afraid of what other's might think. As a bully victim myself I am just glad I made it through. Honestly I hope Karofsky got locked up and never released. There is no excusing what he did, no matter how scared he was.
Even though this story is years old and you'll never mesage me back, thank you for writing this. I've never been so affected by a fic in all my ten years on this site. I may never read this fic again, the content is just too painful, but I am definitely adding it to my favorites :)

| MissSalvaforbeson chapter 2 . 3/18/2015
what do I think of this story?
well, I hate it.
not in the its-so-terrible-I-wanna-puke way, mind you, but in a I-can't-stop-crying-and-there-goes-my-handkerchief-and-THAT'S-why-I-hate-it way. beautifully written, no words to describe it. took me 2 whole days to finish this; I was practically bawling my eyes off while I read it. great work. definitely a favourite... :-)

Wow. I have never cried this much over a fanfiction. That was beautifully written and I seriously can not stop crying right now. This is so not fair. Keep up the amazing work. But try to be a little kid der to our hearts please.

Finally, months after I started reading this fic, I have reached the end. This is so heartbreaking I had to give myself breaks in between chapters. My heart just couldnt handle that much angst and pain. It's beautifully written. Great job!

Magnificent. Just ... wow.
You must be thinking, so long after this was completed, how you could be receiving a review so many months later. Well, because this is simply, hands-down, the most emotionally wrenching fan fiction I've ever seen, and I read A LOT of this stuff. It is just beautiful. Several chapters left me puddled up and in a couple I had to pause to clear away tears. It is so *personal* and so *real* that at times I felt I truly was looking in on friends in love and grief and overarching sadness. Now, writing this in October of 2013, some of it is even more poignant with the death of one of the actors. I dare say that many of the feelings you describe here so movingly were and are experienced in real life by the young actors. And I applaud two of your biggest choices: avoiding the happy ending, and counseling against suicide. These choices are what makes this ring true, and I hope your readers - especially the most vulnerable - listen to your message. Congratulations on a wonderful piece of writing. I wish you continued success.
