I don't have the words to express what this fic did to me. So beautiful, so powerful, I could swear I can feel a dagger in my heart as well.

Nope. Not okay. You aren't allowed to kill anyone anymore. It makes me cry. Nope. Hurts. *stares at heart where it's lying on the ground* That really hurt. Look what you did.

Maker. This was the most powerful and tragic piece I have ever read. My reaction is definitely similar to Varric's - just how senseless and unfair it is, how unfitting it is, how wrong it is.
Your imagery is just exquisite. You don't go crazy with it, you show enough and let the reader fill in the rest and it's perfect. It was such a little thing but, the sand shifting under her as she held him really stuck with me, almost like the world was pulling them a part when all she wanted was to cling to him. The rain and the blood and the descriptions of his dying breath was just heartbreaking. I'm going to cry again just thinking about it.
The back and forth between the death and the after stuff was superbly done. It was so nice to see Hawke finally kind of move on and then you crushed us with that ending. I can't even talk about the ending without tearing up so I'm not going to, just, it was incredible.
You had everyone's characterisation spot on as well. I loved how Aveline carried Hawke (metaphorically) how Varric spoke for her, how Anders healed etc. It matches them perfectly and the way they all grieved was also excellently done and very realistic. As others have said it was really Aveline's scenes that broke me. Just utterly heart wrenching, she knows Hawke's pain so well and the fact that she felt like she had failed yet again, just ugh!
I'm going to read something fluffy now. Have a lovely weekend xxx

So, I finally gathered the courage to read this fic. I regret it yet I do not. It was beautiful and even without glory, it was what I imagined Fenris' death to be like. However, it is exceedingly difficult to type when my eyes are swollen from tears and I feel like a part of me just died. Time to go read some fluffy Fenris/Hawke fics; I can't even feel anything anymore, it just hurts so much... I suppose I should be angry at you, because holy shit this was cruel and terrible but at the same time...real. I could feel the pain just by reading it and this was definitely well written (All those analogies, metaphors, similes, ect. though TT) The chronology of this was also absolutely brilliant. I mean, the passage right before the last one was Hawke finding her closure and I feel minutely better...and THEN THE FRIKKIN' LAST PASSAGE TORE MY HEART OUT ANEW. HOW CAN YOU DO THIS TO ME OMG. And the last thing he says "Yours-!" I can't- I need to go cry some more. Screw this, I have no more feels left to give T_T

For a while there I thought I would be able to get through the story without crying like a baby, but then I got to the scene with Aveline and I couldn't help myself. That was beautiful.

This one was like a vice around my throat. Very emotive.
| Witchy Bee chapter 1 . 7/3/2013
Well I'm just going to cry and read all the rest of your DA fics I haven't read yet. You are among the best fanfic authors I've ever read, and just as a writer in general. Your characterizations and your beautiful words and...I can't even express how much I love you right now.

Oh my god... This made me cry... How could you write such a heart-wrenching story? Did you cry while you were writing it? D: This was beautifully written, I congratulate you!
| kitkat2000 chapter 1 . 5/27/2013
This is a beautiful piece, tears seemed to have flown out of my eyes before I even knew it! The words, the figures of speech, the little implications of a flashback, the tenderness and the plot are all beautifully made and pieced. Awesome. :)

This made me cry.. so much. I love your writing so, so much. It was beautiful. Thank you
| RabidAnimeFangirl chapter 1 . 2/11/2013
This is just beautiful. I'm crying so much right now. I was fine until the end; my eyes were watering, but I wasn't crying completely. Then at this part:
"His heart thumps once, hard.
I just started crying. Thank you for writing this.
| Fear Fades Hope Lives 4Ever chapter 1 . 12/27/2012
I am totally crying right now. I both love you and hate you and, this is just horrible! I applaud you!
| orangeflavor chapter 1 . 11/21/2012
Okay, so I have never cried while reading a fanfiction. And though I can't really say that I did on this one, there were definitely tears in my eyes, some lodged emotion in my throat. There is something incredibly tender and yet ruthless in your writing of this piece, and I am so glad that you wrote it this way. Your writing is beautiful, evocative, and wholly true to the characters. Aveline's moments hit me hardest, maybe because there is something universally felt in shared grief and regret. You explored this whole story so passionately and so achingly raw. Definitely an amazing read. Thank you so much for posting this. I think it just made my week. Keep writing. It seems a natural talent to you.

You have managed to truly express the depth of such a loss.

I can't even see what I'm typing clearly. This is so beautiful and heart-wrenching and - and all those other stunning adjectives that have already been used a hundred times over. I tried so hard not to cry, and I was doing so well up until the part where Hawke breaks down with Aveline. I want to slap you and hug you at the same time. Thank you.
