Me again... I love this just as much as I love the rear of yours and maybe a little more... I read it while listening to Thriller by Fall Out Boy (finally got my earbuds back! Yes!) And it really seems to go with the part that's all like "long live the car crash hearts" cuz that's just what they are... :) i love the sunflower metaphor.

Gorgeous, I actually liked it better than the last one of yours I read! I've always been more a fan of pretty words (like this fic) rather than clever plot (like your Ryder/Jade one).
I really, really, REALLY loved how you incorporated Beck's parents, the change from golden-girl Jadelyn to bad-girl Jade, the idea that they were pretty ballerinas and the way Beck wanted summer when Jade was summer, and winter when Jade was winter.
The conversation near the end with Beck's mother and Jade was flawless, the idea that Jade still snuck sunflowers in her hair when she thought nobody was looking was beautiful (and on that same note, the symbolism behind the sunflowers, from when they were little kids to teenagers to adults was ingenious).
That one scene where it's winter and everyone else is paired up and Beck and Jade are discussing how they shouldn't have listened to "them" was written so, so /well/ I could imagine the entire thing; absolutely lovely.
Here were some of my favorite lines:
"They had been dancing on the outskirts of each other's lives for so long."
"Like summer had progressed into winter, Jadelyn had progressed into Jade."
"Jadelyn-ahem, Jade, was a girl of circumstance"
"The sunflowers growing taller and taller in his mother's garden was enough, the warm breeze was enough/"
You can't write things like that and then tell me you can't write.

You thought this was bad?! I absolutely loved it. I loved the way you set it up, I loved how you put little things in the brackets, and I just loved the story. It was very descriptive and deep and a little emotional. There was a poetic vibe to it and overall was fantastic.

Dude. How could you hate this? This may be my favorite of your's... Next to Remembering Jade.. Lol. This is just so in character and great. So many people have been writing this type of thing since they broke up, but this is by far the best. I cried, laughed and smiled. It's crazy good.

How can you hate this? It was absolutely beautiful! I loved every single part of it, and how you showed the evolution of Jade and Beck through the years! I also love the references to summer, winter and the flowers, it was really creative!

i absolutely loved this story! it was so creative and very real. my favorite part was "You love me again?"[He hates how it's a question this time]"I'll never stop."[She likes how his isn't]. That line was so adorable and so Beck&Jade. You are and amazing author, keep up the good work!
