| Nadiah chapter 1 . 6/15
I have just finished reading all 43 chapters of your story and it is utterly beautiful. I'm a 15 year old girl and I love the vampire diaries and Damon and Elena's relationship so much. This story is so beautifully written and it is literally perfect. I've laughed, I've cried (a lot) and it's been such an amazing story to read. The ending was perfect and the story flowed so smoothly. I could feel every emotion the characters felt. My heart genuinely hurt during Elena's breakdown on Christmas Eve day. I've never cried so much reading a story. I love Stefan and Damon's sibling relationship. I love Caroline and bonnie. And who could forget Mark and Colin. Thank you so much for writing this story even though it was in 2012/2013 and you may not even see this but thank you for keeping delena alive now that the show have ended.

I found this amazing fan fiction through a YouTube who created a Trailer for this exact story. I've writing a couple fan fictions of my own for awhile, and when I began reading this I was completely blown away. Your an amazing writer and creator, you took two characters and made them even more better. This story has made me cry, laugh, get angry, but most of all he really happy. I know it's been years since you published this, but I have never read anything so perfect before. You did a wonderful work. Thank you so much for your beautiful piece.

When I started reading fanfics in 2013, I had no idea where to begin, but i casually did a google search and stumbled across this. Basically, I hit the jackpot. This was the first story that I ever read and I'm so glad because this is what really drew me into reading more fics. I don't know what was expecting, but I wasn't expecting this story. After 4 years, this is still one of the most- if not the most, beautiful, intricately woven, (and probably longest!) fanfic out there - i remember reading certain chapters and feeling my heart physically hurting (not kidding, it actually hurt physically and I was like wtf). I've read almost every other decent Delena fanfic that i could get my hands on after that, and while I've found some amazing ones which are not inferior to TSOF, this story still holds a particularly special place in my heart. I can't even find the words to explain it, and I know it seems a bit stupid to be so dramatic over a story about fictional characters, but this story had such a real, and raw depth to it that is hard to come by, and once in a while I still come back and re-read and fall in love with the story all over again. I think I only stopped crying somewhere between the 3rd and 4th time I reread it. Life was kind of shitty for a while, and sometimes still is, but for some reason TSOU stuck with me and I found solace in reading it and healed something within me, even if it was just for a while (wow this is getting really dramatic LMAO IM NEARLY DONE) anyway, I don't know if you're still around here or reading reviews anymore, or planning on finishing Alas We Aspire (I hope so!) but I just wanted to thank you truly, because this story had a greater impact on my life that you could ever imagine, and made me laugh and smile and cry (a lot, the first time i read it i had a mental breakdown and a snotty nose multiple times) which I believe is the hallmark of a brilliant writer. To be able to touch the hearts and minds of others in their everyday lives is not an easy feat, but for me, that's exactly what you did with this story. Although I had not been in those situations myself, the characters felt so alive, and their pain resonated with me on such a deep and personal level it was actually kind of freaky at first lol. I think you might've once said somewhere that you wrote this during a heavy time in your life, and if that's true it really shows (in a good way). While I personally love (and need) a happy ending in the end, angst and all that heavy deep shit is a part of life, and you portrayed it exceptionally well, in such a beautiful and touching way. So thank you again for the billionth time, and I hope that wherever you are now and whatever you're doing that you're well and happy and healthy.

Another awesome one! The end is brilliant but what I love the most is the Car-Damon moment. Thats how I always wanted them to be!
| Guest chapter 2 . 12/17/2016
Probably the best Delena fanfic I've ever read! ️
| DarkxSalvation chapter 18 . 12/16/2016
I have no words to describe this chapter. Its absolutely beautifully written and beyond heartbreaking. You saw it coming yet it hit you hard. You desribe both their feelings so perfectly well that you feel as if you go through that pain yourself. Wow.

Best prologue I've read in a long while. I'm hooked already
| DarkxSalvation chapter 17 . 12/15/2016
Totally love this chapter. Very lighthearted. I loved to read a totally different POV as well as getting some awesome Steroline scenes. I couldn't stop laughing about NSync and Britney Spears (oh yeah memories) and I so loved the end. Little TVD hint again in a totally differentway bettercontext!

I already read this story for quite a bit and always thought a review would be of no use cause the story is finished but I HAVE to say how obsessed I became with your story. It got my attention through a YouTube trailer and they were absolutely right when they said this story is THE DE story. I love to read the little parts that link to the show (Damon- I know. I know.) as well as how you portray Elena (she sees the good in him and why he acts the way he does) and especially Damon. Its awesome to get insight into his thoughts and that you go deeper with his character than the show. Your Damon is 1:1 the TVD Damon, we just get to know him way better (I just say underestimation of his own worthiness) and that makes it so epic. The last two chaps were my favs so farthe elevator scene after they left his dad and the scene at this chapters end were PERFECT. You know how to write it dramatically but not too kitschy, just the way it suits them. And what I absolutely love and cant wait to read more about is the relationship between Damon and his dad. Something that became WAY too little attention in the show and is in my eyes one of THE most important parts to understand Damon. Okay so sorry for this long review but I had to get it out
