Reviews for Not Your's To Keep

OMG! I have cried when reading and I have laughed, but I have never ever sobbed uncontrollably ! This story did that to me. I heard and saw them in this story and felt every word of it break my heart too.

I was crying thru this whole story. This was a amazing story of the pair. It would have been wonderful if you could have done a piece on the first anniversary of his death to show how Parker came along.

Losing anyone is hard, but losing a loved one to a slow degenerative must be one of the worst ways. I am sorry for your loss. This is a very moving story. Thank you for sharing, I hope it helps you heal.

Awesome job!

Alright, I'll admit that I'm a huge, huge lurker. I can't remember the last time I've posted a review, and that's horrible and sometimes I feel guilty about it, but that's not really the point. The point is, I've gone through like, a quarter of a box of tissues and the chocolate that was sitting on my night stand is now gone and I am absolutely and completely emotionally drained from reading this piece.

You write so simply yet vividly, and I really love the way you punctuate their thoughts with short declaritive sentences. But other than that, I was a sobbing puddle of mush, and it was so, awfully heart wrenchingly beautiful that I'm pretty sure I looked rather similar to Parker on the ground at the funeral when this was over.

I don't know why I read fics with major character death, since I can't even handle minor character death, and this one was so particularly keyed in on their emotions and I just, I can't even. Words won't happen.

If I'm ever in need of an emotional purge, I'll definitely be revisiting this story with a box of kleenex and a pint of Ben and Jerry's Half Baked.

Damn...just wow. I cried so damn hard. Not only because you wrote a very good short, killing our boy Eliot, but because I, like you, know from experience, the devastation that ALS can bring. I agree that people need to donate to it, because like you said, there is no cure and that one drug barely helps. I'm so sorry for your loss.

All i can say is damn, you had me in tears by the middle. good job
Through Darkness chapter 1 . 2/28/2012
My god woman, are you trying to kill me? Seriously. Can we go back to Parker being blind? I could handle that. I'm not a crier - I didn't cry at the Notebook, any other John Sparks film, Ladder 49, or anything - just to illustrate to you how much of a crier I am not. And you had to pick ALS which has a special place for breaking my heart. So here I am, damn close to crying because this was so beautiful and so sad. Heart shattering and wonderful. The only thing I might've added would've been a line somewhere about how Eliot would've liked to be more physically affectionate with her and was unable to - though I suppose the bit about Parker dragging him back to bed vaguely covered it. Amazing piece - it makes me want to run back to my Eliot/Parker stuff despite the fact that it's 3AM and I have an exam in the morning. Excellent story.

I hate this story. I really do, because you move me to such tears every time I read it. This is probably the best tearjerker that I have ever read, possibly so because it is so short, yet about as powerful as a nuclear grenade. I ache for you and the experience you had to go through with this, and the fact that you wrote such a haunting story, I hope, was a bit of a catharsis for you. Beautiful, simply beautiful.
Jesco0307 chapter 1 . 2/27/2012
Since you mention you've written this out of experience: I am very, very sorry you had to go through this.

I usually avoid death!fic and I'm not sure why I read this, but despite the fact I actually cried, I'm glad I did.

It's a very sad and tragic story, but you've written it wonderfully.
saides chapter 1 . 2/27/2012
That was an awful lot of pain to take this early in the morning! Beautifully written and really appreciated.
