Moving and thoughtful. This is a beautiful story, love, loss, grief, incredible pain, hope. Your writing is wonderful, I am so pleased I have recently found your stories. I am left with so many thoughts and emotions.
Your characters were written very well. Billy, though we didn't have much from him, was loving, devoted and hopeful for his son's recovery. Charlie was supportive and helpful without having to add to the emotion. Bella was lovely. I cried when Jake jumped and when he thought about why afterwards. I got nervous when she returned and was thrilled he turned her away.
Thank you for writing.

What a great twist! I like it better than the canon storyline ;)

Bella is so sweet in this, and Jacob is so lost. You wrote this beautifully and I felt the heaviness in my heart.

This was perfect. It truly was. I really enjoy the way you handle the topics of depression and the fallout and effects of attempted suicide. Everything from the nausea caused by the meds, to Jake wondering why Bella would even like him in the first place. It's very real, and very true to life without being dramatized or glamorized. It is what is. And how people deal with it is as individual as the causes, and you capture that so well.
I also really enjoy that while Jacob and Bella are so different, they are very true to their canon character traits. I truly love your Bella, because she's wonderful and a picture of what canon Bella could have been. And while I didn't enjoy watching Jacob suffer, it still seemed like Jake... I'm glad you gave Bella some humor. I think my favorite part was when she said "This Bella comes with her own aged truck, a caffeine addiction and some seriously dubious CDs." That was choice. Sometimes, small moments like that give away more about a character than whole paragraphs could.
Exceptionally well-written piece about a difficult topic that is often dealt with in the grossest of ham-handed manners. Bravo, m'dear.

Wow. That was amazing! I actually read it because of the shower-wank scene. LOL I didn't know it had so many other layers to it. I love how you switched it around, although it was very hard to see Jake so depressed and unhappy. But it only stands to reason that it's not such a far-fetched idea, given his background and all the poor boy has been through. :(
It was also nice to see Bella be the happy, common-sense caregiver to him. Meyer always painted her as this mature caregiver, since Renee was so inept and she did all Charlie's cooking and cleaning, but really she was pretty useless in that respect. LOL
Great story! You fit a lot of growth and events into one one-shot.

Aww, hun, that was beautiful! And realistic, too. It brought back some memories of a family member and her descriptions of previous attempts and feelings. I like how it wasn't easy or perfect, but little things began to change. Bella being there for him and talking was perfect.
And Jake finally standing up to HER... though needing more time to get over it... and then finding he was in love with a better choice was lovely. Wonderful OS :)

A gut-wrenching, heart-smothering tale of life's reality. The inverse situation doesn't go unnoticed but the brilliance of this story lays in how you portrayed depression! Not with 4 blank pages but depicting real feelings, actions, thoughts back and forth.
It feels like everybody played a role, had a purpose to be in the story and subsequently affecting Jacob's life. Loved the gradually building change in Jacob and the pace of his fall and rise.
Although you said almost everything in only a O/S this plot, if not unearthly hard, would've been sooooo worth explored in depth.
Although I was reluctant to read this first apprehensive of too much heart-ache, it turned out to be one of the most beautiful O/S's I've ever read. Brilliant work!

"teenagers throwing their suffering voices like ventriloquists off cliffs."
Oh my GAWD rach! That is probably the most heartbreakingly beautiful line I've ever read. Excellent.
Everything was excellent actually. I'm really glad you sent me this link. I know you remember that day as well as I do. You saved me. I will never get over it. I love you, Rachel. You're my sister, my love.
You have done a beautiful job, my sweet. Congratulations. 3

This is beautifully real. Jake's sadness is palpable, so heavy and heartbreaking. You did an amazing job of pulling us into his dark bubble of despair, then bursting that bubble and letting in the light again.
There are so many little lines that broke my heart, and then moments where I felt hopeful that it was like I was experiencing Jake's depression myself.
