...Okay. Good, but not at all what I expected. Still, a very good story, so good job!

The weirdest thing about this fic was the fact that I kept thinking it was in present tense. I still don't know how you did it. You wrote this and ruined a perfectly happy memory of my childhood (well, kind of memory. Expansion on a memory. Whatever.) with your terribly terrible tale of teenage woe that actually was woeful, and somehow the only thing I'm freaked out about is why I can't get my tenses straight.

You terribly terrible writer, you. How dare you write about such a horrific subject in such an innocent (ish. I was kind of hoping it would end up to be that creepy guy on the Ferris wheel who was the problem, not Ghetsis. Although that might have just been because I didn't remember him for a moment... He was pretty creepy too.) fandom or whatever else this is called and do it so horribly well.

I think I might have to start a fan club.

I've read this fic about three or four times by now and it still makes me want to cry. You handled such a difficult topic with such good taste and delicacy, and the way you only imply what happened... There's an overall sense of fragileness, of helplessness, that makes this fic more heartbreaking than any description could have. The long build-up showing everything that simply feels wrong from the point of view of an "outsider"... And then the end, that feels just dreamlike and surreal, really soft and beautiful but somehow too good to believe, despite the bittersweetness... It's just a really, really good piece you wrote and it aches in all the right places.

...I usually don't care for rape fic. It's such an unpleasant topic and I'm the kind of person who prefers happy things overall. But I really, really liked this. You handled the subject matter very well, rather than going into the gory details of Cheren's rape and Ghetsis going MUAHAHAHAHAHA over it you dealt with the psychological impact, which is what matters most in my book.

And the fact that you did it all from Black's POV made this quite an interesting read, with him not understanding why Cheren was acting so different and then finding out something he could've never imagined was the case. And you handled the whole road to recovery thing well, too, just because Black was there and supportive didn't make it all better for Cheren. I especially like that you acknowledged that Black getting revenge on Ghetsis wouldn't change anyting-killing Ghetsis might be satisfying for Black, but it won't magically fix it so that Cheren was never raped.

This was a very compelling read overall. (And my emotional side just kept going CHEREN OMG the whole time...poor kid.)

This story is very touching to me. A best friend of mine has been raped and I feel like Black a bit... You wrote this extremely well and the detail was appalling. I don't really want so say anything else because I'm crying now, damnit. But just... Great job. Spot on.
Padfoot Arcanine chapter 1 . 6/15/2011 Just wow. I don't even have words. This was heartbreaking and just... yeah. I think you handled the topic being discussed with class, which is saying something, compared to the other fics that deal with this subject matter. The last scene was just perfect. This is an excellent piece. Great work.

I'm speechless.

This was just . . . I don't even know. It was perfect. The tone was beautiful and saddening and the characters were drawn out amazingly. The ending was haunting and hopeful. I teared up and I have never cried while reading fan fiction. Do you realize how talented you are? Just - I still don't know what to say except that you have definitely inspired me to write darker fics.

This is, and probably will always be, my favorite work of yours. Thanks for writing something so beautiful.
Kuruk chapter 1 . 6/15/2011
Ah, this was beautiful... though I hesitate to say beautiful, because of the subject matter. Still, it was treated and written beautifully, and aside from a few typos here and there, this piece was pretty much perfect.

I don't know what else to say except thank you for writing such an amazing piece about such a sensitive issue. It takes courage, I think, and an equal amount of talent and maturity, to take such a horrible thing and portray it in a way that's honest and true. Thank you again for this.
