|Reviews for A Break in the Pattern|
| shadowreader28 chapter 1 . 9/4
Just read your post from January. I wish you luck for the future as I am in my last year of high school and understand, that you don't have as much free time. Ignore those messages as they shouldn't be there and those who write them mainly think about what they want not the bigger picture. Yet again, good luck in life and very sorry to hear about you cat, as I understand how it is to lose a well loved pet.

I'm sorry for your loss and hope that his spirit will always be at your side when you need him most. I know how hard it is to lose a pet that was family in every way. I resently lost two ferrets that I'd raised and help raise since they were rescued from a neglectful owner, both from health comlications. It helps to think they're still around, if only in spirit.

R.I.P Simon. I know I would be really emotional if Exene (my cay since I could remember) died. Hang in there and good luck.

I am really sorry for the loss of your cat. I know how hard it is to lose an animal that has shared our life for so many years.
I wanted to read your story, but I can also understandthat sometimes real life is more important than anything else. I hope that you can achieve the goals that you have set up.
I'll just add you to the authors that I follow, and hope that you will write again one day. Things like that should not be done under pressure. I can be very patient for a new chapter. I'm still waiting for some authors to come back sometimes more than 5 years after. But even when you love what someone write, you can not hope for more if it doesn't make the author happy to write anymore.

I am upset that there are people in this would who don't understand the concept "if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all"
I had not read your story by the time you took it down so unfortunately I missed out. I came across the summary and was determined to read it when I got the chance. Unfortunately that chance ever came but I still hold hope that one day I will be able to read the story that goes with the rather intriguing summary.
I'm also sorry about your cat. One of my greatest fears is loosing my dog, I can't imagine the pain you went through and probably still are.
I hope to one day end your story.

I'm deeply sorry for your loss! May God have only good things for you now to come!
| Mordollwen Castiel chapter 1 . 6/7
I'm sorry for the death of your cat. I perfectly understand the pain and the sadness you pass through. When I was 11 I also lost my cat who fell from the window (she was only 7 months...). I never really got over it but the mourn is less intense with the time.
About the person who send you that horrid flame, just ignore him. That person is just an immature brat who has nothing better to do with his life than annoyed and insult other people for fun.
I never read your stories but I'm sure that they are awesome and great ! If you repost them, I'll be glad to read review them since I think they worth to be read and appreciated (I only said that to some great reviews I read about them )
I tell you once again that I'm really sorry for your cat. It's him on the picture ? He looks so adorable !
PS : Sorry for my english, I'm french x)

I hope that you saved your stories so you look back at your old work when your older and read them fondly like I do with mine. :')

I hope you are feeling better and I know Simon will be happily waiting for you in the afterlife since you clearly loved him so much. :') I hope you never have to witness another terrible comment like that again, on a good day or bad one. I'm sorry for the idiots who overreact and exaggerate every single one of their minor problems and I hope you know that they are and always will be nothing but worthless ants attempting to get to your food (aka stories). Don't worry about writing, just relax and take your time in counseling yourself. :) I hope you have a good day!
A concerned reader who knows life's toils will always get you down but your friends and family along with anyone who actually matters, will be there to support you and being you back up to tip top shape :3,
N. Evans Xxx
Hang in there, love. :")

Well, at least you've been checking, that's all I can say! This story sounds interesting - my condolences on your cat, if my bird died I'd be distraught.
| Naoko.Namikaze chapter 1 . 3/26
Sorry to hear about Simon. I get upset when I can't wait for an update but that was uncalled for. Also I hope that you can repost your stories soon as I just discovered this one. But whe I wait I will read the others you have posted. Best of wishes, Naoko.

I'm so sorry about your kitty, he sounded like he was an amazing companion and friend.
I'm so sorry that some people were so inconsiderate to post such hateful things on such a wonderful story. The truth of the matter is, it does not matter whether updates come once every week or once in two years, people should be grateful for what you've given them. This is FanFiction...a website a place for people who love to write and tell stories to share their ideas and tell wonderful tales online...for FREE. You don't get paid for all your hard work, you don't get recognition or thanks beyond the few reviews that people decide to leave. I won't fault you for requesting reviews before posting a chapter. Writing is hard, and when you are gracious enough to take valuable time out of your day to write something for the enjoyment of others, then why is it so bad to want a small comment? Reviews don't take nearly as long as a chapter does. So no, I don't fault you, who works, is in school, and has a social life around you for asking people who have enough time to read fanfiction to take less than a minute out of their day to tell you they liked it, or that it made them smile, or think, or made them bawl like a baby. You're absolutely right, when you publish on fanfiction, its like exposing a piece of your mind, becoming vulnerable to an online world where it is exponentially easier to be cruel and hateful to someone because you can hide under the anonymous label or an impersonal username. Asking for reviews before you updated was in no way holding chapters "hostage." They are your work, your beautiful, wonderful creations, and we as readers were lucky just to have you share them with us! Its easy for people to forget that they are benefiting from your hard work, dedication, and passion to these characters and their stories, and that we should be grateful to authors for being so creative and kind enough to share their thoughts and ideas.
You're a wonderful story teller, Ducky. Never doubt that. Thank you for posting on fanfiction, thank you for sharing your wonderful, amazing ideas. There are many of us out here who appreciate it, even if we don't always let you know.
Love, a reader.
| Anju R chapter 1 . 3/1
I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty. I know how that feels. Working as a veterinary technician, we see a lot of sad cases and each and every one is hard. It pulls at the heartstrings. I lost my own baby November 24, 2014. He was 18 and I'd had him since I was 6. You'll always have him though, even if he isn't with you anymore.
As for the reviewer that sent you such a nasty and hateful review, they should be ashamed of themselves. People take authors of fanfiction for granted more often than not, and it shouldn't happen but unfortunately the world is the way it is. You don't write for your readers in the long run, and even though good reviews are a bonus, you shouldn't have to put up with easily offended petty people to get those.
I hope you feel better about Simon soon and that you finish your last year with as little stress as possible. Hopefully you can find that spark of inspiration to write again soon, but if not, no matter! Your stories are good, and you improve with every chapter. I'll look forward to reading some of yours again! :)

Sorry about your Simon. I know I would be devastated if my George died. My thoughts are with you as you mourn.

I'm sorry about your cat, I truly am. I wish you the best in your schoolwork.
