| Stepheyy chapter 3 . 3/1
so I read the first story and just read this. For some reason I can't explain why I read the story. There wasn't really anything to draw me in but yet it wasn't enough to make me turn away.
I hope you don't take this the wrong way, I'm being truthful, it was a good story and this one is turning out to be as well. I do have one question though, Rachel cheated on Quinn and is now pregnant? weird.

I loved the original story, and was a little dismayed at the setup at the start of this one - Rachel cheated and is pregnant! However, I have faith that this will be another fascinating exploration of the way their relationship works (or doesn't!) and that hopefully they will come through it. I'm guessing Quinn develops some sort of addiction problem for real hence the distance and the pushing away.
Anyway, great to see more from you. Looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.

I have absolutely no problem on how you plan to write this story. Your other one was amazing and I'm sure that this one will be too.

I'm so in love with the original and this sequel because its real. Relationships are hard and its painful and it's sacrificing. I love that they are both so self aware of their relationship tendencies and are working so hard to get past each other's flaws. Love has been so romanticized but there is more beauty in this type of 'edge of heartbreak', 'love the way you lie' kind of relationship. It just holds so much worth when you have to actually work to keep it from breaking apart.

A Campaign of Shock and Awe will forever be one of my favourite stories, as well as one of my favourite portrayals of these two characters. All of which was created by you! So, I have no problems with whatever you plan to do in the continuation. I'm simply happy that you are continuing it because you are an amazing writer and you're allowing us to revisit these lives that you have created (for better or worse). Thanks for the update and I look forward to reading more!

Though other readers may be easily turned off by the life circumstances that happened to Quinn and Rachel, it was plain to me, and even more clear in this chapter, that their love and commitment for each other remains, no matter what life throws at them. I understood that even through the first 2 chapters because you write their subtle and nuanced interactions incredibly well, every action or glance imbued with meaning, it's fascinating and engaging to read. Maybe I'm so far removed from reading ACoSaA that I don't see the disconnect that other readers see, but in any case, there is an interesting story to be told here that is incredibly human and realistic, that may be hard to read at times, but I trust that it'll be worth reading for the growth the characters go through in the end. This 3rd chapter showed me that Faberry love could never die lol..favorite chapter so far! please keep on writing )

Please don't let the other reviewers discourage you from writing this story.
While some look for stories with no angst, no drama, no growth from their characters, others like me love a great story where our favorite characters need to experience the greatest depths of despair, overcome obstacles, learn from them, and grow stronger from them.
I trust you as a writer to help us through this journey and look forward to the rest of it.

So, I totally get where you're going and I always find it admirable whrn someone wants to write about people fighting through the hard times. I couldn't help but laugh at your chapter 2 authors note though. Rachel cheated and Quinn obviously screwed up in some major way, so I think the 'completely committed to each other through everything' ship has sailed. Maybe re commitment works, but you can't argue that they've been committed.

Beautiful. Thank you for writing! The last half of this is still one of my favourites. :)

Oh man, I read your AN and I'm sorry, but
I was so excited knowing there was a sequel to ACOSAA but when I read the first chapter I felt gutted. I read the chapter 2 AN and I understand what you're trying to do, but I don't think it shouldve been a continuation of that story. ACOSAA is one of my favorite ffs. I honestly reread it from time to time (the latest time was coincidentally 2 weeks ago) because I fell in love with the plot and the characters and their relationship. reading this is kind of leaving a bad taste in my mouth and is destroying my world of the first fic. Sorry, this is coming out backhanded but I love your writing. Really! its great! I probably wont read hardwired but II'll be sure to check out anything else you publish.

Wow. It's been 2 long years. I already gave up on an update, but here you are. I'm glad for it and hope that you'll find it in you to continue this. This story is very cathartic I guess.
