|Reviews for Not Hers to Take|
| CileSuns92 chapter 1 . 4/27
Sometimes I read fanfic to reconsider what happened on the show and see another angle of it and yep, this was it. I never considered the idea that she would consider him "not hers" on top of everything else. Which also makes the whole "you belong with me" line even more powerful. Kudos for this. And what a plot bunny this was!
Also, lots of love for that hug right at the end. Olivia might not have given in to her desires, but she definitely gave away her heart and soul right there. And the way she wants to treasure this moment and hide its existence at the same time is both wonderful and heartbreaking. Much like all this one-shot, really. Still, I came for the drama, I know what I was signing up for :P
Thank you for writing this!

But he was! even when he went over there - he was always her. He belonged with her.

Wow. Harsh, real and so very heartbreaking.

you should do a sequel! about the days that are following this but from Peter point of view... seeing how Olivia is destroying herself and not understanding why... and then finally discover why...
or Peter hearing Olivia talking with somebody... like Ella (i love that character, even if she doesn't shows up anymore) saying that Peter can't stay because he's not from here and we can't be that selfish to make him stay...even if you love him... :)

A beautifully written "fill in the blank". It captures Olivia's dilemma perfectly - wanting him to stay, not wanting to take away his autonomy, but not telling him the secret for fear of his leaving.

This is beautiful, Elialys! You're amazingly gifted and talented. You're definitely one of my favorite authors for sure. Good job, honey. This was wonderful! Thank you for this!

Wow, that was quite the emotional ride that you put us through, Ambre. It's good to revisit those old episodes, because they are always ripe with potential 'what if' scenarios and moments left untouched.
I like that fact that Olivia is so raw here, her desire for Peter is right out in the open, as is her own desire to forget the terrifying evidence that she was witness to. Maybe it's the liquor, or something else, but I like this raw side of Olivia.
The heartbreaking realization that she makes at the end is very Olivia; she will always sacrifice her own needs for the greater good, and in this case that's the good of Peter.
Well done as always :)

So sad... But very in keeping with Olivia.
