I'm falling back in active love with Divy and Smash and so of course I had to start by rereading this gem, and OMG SO GOOD! Derek being stupid and Ivy being so passionate and Tom so incredibly sweet (and furtively supportive just as I've always understood him) and Julia is perfect as well!
I'm also Cheshire Cat grinning over Ivy only being 29, because we all know she is!

I love this story so much. I love how you write, not only Derek and his fathers relationship, but also Derek and Ivy's.

Thank you so much! I was having a really bad day yesterday and for some reason I decided to rewatch the series finale of smash. After that was done, I felt even worse than before, so I started skimming through fanfics. I read about 20, most of them not even half because they turned out to be about Cartwills. But then I started reading yours and really could not stop. I read on the bus, during lectures, during meals. This morning, I read the last chapters of your amazing fanfic and not that I've finished it, I really want to thank you. Thank you for taking my mind of my life for some time & thank you for taking me back to a time, when we still got a new episode of this show every week. Beautifully written, my shipper heart is happy again!

Oh my gosh I love this fanfic. I really do I've read it for about 15 times this week

First thing I have to say is, thank you, thank you, thank you for this story. I LOVE it!
This is the second time I have read this story. The first being about 6 months ago. I happily ran across it again because, unlike a lot of SMASH fans, I prefer Ivy for the role of Marilyn and Megan Hilty for the role of the main actress, so my google search led me quickly to it. So reading a nicely written Ivy or in this case (Divy) story was a real pleasure. There aren't that many Ivy/Divy stories out online which surprises me.
I love how you balance dialogue and description perfectly. I do wish though that the chapters were a tad longer because I sort of raced through the story rather quickly because I loved it so much.
I do have a few things to nit pick though: you haven't touched upon the whole issue of Ivy getting drunk/high while performing in Heaven on Earth and since you don't plan on following the stoyrline that season 1 ended on, so I'm slightly confused on where this is going if the drama isn't going to be focussed on Karen and Ivy for the role of Marilyn. Or do you plan on going a different route entirely and not give Karen any chance at being Marilyn?
I would really like it if you could please continue this story. Also if you know of any other Ivy or Divy stories that are good, could you please refer them because they are hard to find. Thank you for keeping up with the story and for sharing this with the Ivy/Divy/Smash fan base! You are wonderful! (-)

Oh my god, I read this entire story in one day because I could not stop reading. It is truly amazing and I actually wish this had been the show. I don't mind waiting for the next chapter, I just ask that you please don't abandon it! It's way too good to be left unfinished.

I really love this story I cant wait for the next chapter please update soon
| AshleyM15 chapter 36 . 6/5/2013
Brill chapter! I love that you made Tom and Derek tell Ivy about their fallout. Derek's face...he was worried what Ivy finding out! I can't wait for the next chapter! I wonder what Derek would say about 'you need to speak to your father'? Can't wait :)

I love this story. I just reread the entire thing. Pleasssseeee keep writing. I need my Ivy/Derek fix and this is practically the only full length story. Plus well-written. Please keep going! I'm lovin' it!

This is not only a great story on its own. I think when it comes down to Derek involved with someone, but still true to his own character, this is probably the best story there is to find on this website. Great job!

I am so glad you are gonna keep writing this story. I am really sad for the cancelation of Smash but well there is nothing we can do about it. I agree that the show was flawed, but there are many flawed shows out there and they dont go around cancelling them. Gess they just coudnt afford to keep it on air.
Well I hope that you dont stop wrinting this story, its really well written and Derek and Ivy are really two of the best characters of Smash.
