Reviews for Saying Goodbye
jetsonastro24 chapter 1 . 4/5/2012
I actually consider myself lucky because my Uncle was stuck in traffic on his way to a meeting, which he was late for, that was going to be held in one of the towers (I forget which one) when the planes hit. If he had been on time, he might not have survived. I actually like reading these stories, because it gives you some perspective. Is this how you would have reacted had one of your loved ones been killed in those attacks? I was devestated when my uncle told me that he should have been in the tower that morning, and I can't imagine how someone who's loved one actually was in that tower felt on that day and every day since. All I have to say is: United We Stand, and 9/11: We Will Never Forget.

During 9/11 I was 2. I remember not knowing what was going on. My mom was panicking while trying to get my 2 sisters home from school early. My dad was heart-broken. He knew a few people that died. If you were to talk about it around my dad, he would get this expression on his face. Seeing all of my family so scared, made me even more scared. Think about it. I was 2. The good thing is, is that we were living in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the time. So, so, so, far away from all of it. Yet we were so scared. You are an amazing author.

Ouch. Also very well written. Many emotions in it, and it kind of made my heart wrench.

Oh God that was amazing...

I've been on fanfiction for ages but this is the first time a fanfic has ever made me cry...

Ammodytus chapter 1 . 9/12/2011
That was a very moving story. I wanted to read something like this about the 9/11 for a long time. Thank you for writing.

I'd just like to point out something that I remember clearly... by the time the first plane crashed in the towers, EVERYONE thought it was an accident. The general thought was that something had happened with the pilots or with the craft... nobody conceived the idea of a terrorist attack until way AFTER the second plane hit the towers. And then the air space was closed. And the rumors that other airplanes had been hijacked spread like fire... and everybody went insane.

Also... something that went without explanation... how did Blaine learn about the terrorist's plans to crash the plane? I imagine they would communicate between themselves in a language other than English, specially to keep the passagers calm and avoid a reaction. They HAD to give hope there could be happy ending for them or whatever. I understand that the passagers COULD have communicated with the outside world and learned what had happened... but as I said, the news about other hijacked airplanes only went out really late... pretty much almost by the time Flight 93 crashed.

I think you could have showed a bit more of the caos that was that morning. Because it was, a real caos... in the media, in the communications, whatever... I imagine Kurt's friends and family all freaking out because of Kurt and Blaine. Even if they didn't live in NYC, it doesn't mean much... since EVERYONE was freaking out at some point...

LOL sorry, I talk too much... I have too much time in my hands. And I enjoyed the story, my critique is just because I think it could have been even better.

I don't think it was insensitive to post at all. The topic was obviously posted in the summary, if you were going to get emotional over it, then don't read it.
AntigoneScorned chapter 1 . 9/11/2011
I think this was a little insensitive to post today. I disn't get more than a few paragraphs in because I couldn't stand to read about something that effected me and my friends and loved ones applied to stories written about a tv show. I'm sure your writing skills are fine, but you made a poor choice on the subject matter.
anonymous chapter 1 . 9/11/2011
I had to skim over the last few paragraphs, rather than reading them all the way through. The pain is still too real. Applying it to Klaine is honestly almost too much for me to take.

Because I know it's just a fanfic, but things like this actually happened. For so many families, those phone calls were real. Those names read off this morning at the memorial were real people with lives and goals.

It's been ten years and I still remember everything like it was yesterday.

It's hard to try complimenting a fic like this, because you don't know what exactly to say. But it was incredibly moving, in the tearing-at-my-heart kind of way.
