Just spent a while looking for this fic so I could re-read it & review; One of my favorite fanfics of all time. I read it a few months ago but could not stop thinking about it today :)

Excellently written and a lovely depiction of Alex and Justin's relationship, even with that touch of incest. Normally I wouldn't read/review an incest story but this one was very well done.

Beautiful, haunting, superb. I love this. Uuuuugggghhhh it's so very well-written that i hope i could write something like it. Applause for you! :DD

You are perfection. So much amazing in one oneshot. My mind has been blown! Second person was absolute perfection for this. The way you portrayed this relationship was amazing. Jalex is amazing (: Also, they were completely in character(: So please continue to write, this site needs more writers like you(:

This was AMAZING! It shows the whole Alex/Justin relationship and has a little hint of romance that makes it seem like it isn't incest.
My favorite part had to have been where Alex was reading the dictionary.

Oh my. FLAWLESS.
Your characterization of Alex is spot on. So much so, in fact, that I was reading lines over and over again. I love the way you depicted how she was feeling, but gave it in such a nonchalant way - so Alex.
And I don't like second person, I actually hate it. But this was such an exception, because you used second pov perfectly. It allowed me to understand Alex on a better level - as if I was actually there. I don't know. Either way, second person worked so well in this!
Also, the dictionary was so very Justin and not shocking, but still beautiful. I got choked up when I read that part.
I love their relationship and I love how you wrote it.

OH MY GOD. Why. Why would you do that, asdfghj.
This was so good, omfg.
Thank you so much for making me stay up late to finish reading this, even though my french teacher probably won't be too happy about it tomorrow, oh.
And why don't they stop looking at stupid rocks, just eat the damn vegetables instead. Ugh.

this is the only fandom where I can read second person without cringing. and you, you just made me fall in love with it. so absolutely wonderful. you put all the great romances to shame ;). amazingly lovely.

This was so perfect and so lovely in its subtlety without being understated in the least.
As I read along, I couldn't help thinking that the old adage "less is more" holds true in regards to this story. What wasn't said between Alex and Justin spoke volumes and validated their feelings even more than a all-out declaration ever would.
The characterizations were so spot-on. You managed to depict Alex's well known tatic of evasion so perfectly. And although Justin's superior intellect was still at the forefront it was toned down. Through your narrative the persona of the uber-nerd took a backseat to reveal a mature and thoughtful young man. By taking this approach you humanized Justin and made him more endearing.
All in all this was an outstanding peice. I look forward to reading more Jalex fic from you.

The dictionary 3
I figured something was written in there but not with that much detail. That was so precious.
| TheWolfHourx chapter 1 . 3/8/2012
This was such a heartwarming fic. You did a beautiful job on it. I loved the dictionary and the way he surprised her by coming out a day later for her birthday. It was really sweet and you did a great job at capturing Jalex.
By the way, I loved how you wrote the interactions between them when he was always about to leave. Really beautiful.
| Rioichi chapter 1 . 3/8/2012
Great depiction of their relationship. The subtly makes it authentic. Some of the stuff bought tears to my eyes; the dictionary bit was heartwarming.
Check out my story A Blasphemous Boundary Broken!
i might continue it soon!
| shyesplease chapter 1 . 3/8/2012
I absolutely adore this. The dictionary idea is SO Justin and so sweet. I had a feeling he did something with it when he asked about it. Amazing job! :)

That was absolutely wonderful, I enjoyed it SO much!
