I remember reading this fic a while back on AO3. I was glad to find that it had even more chapters on ! You've created a true, respectful continuation of Dave's storyline. If you decide to continue, you absolutely have this person looking forward to it.

A thing I really liked about this story was how organic Dave's changes seemed. I thought his convo with Kurt and Rach was a real turning point in his self conception. The dinner with the Hudmels and aftermath convos that came with it were his earlier catalyst, but the scene with K. and R. when he figures out he has friends, seemed to really open Dave's eyes. I also liked the character of Rob. He and D. are so similar in personality it's no wonder they get along and it felt good to me that D. was not completely isolated when he was still going through his early bad phase.
The drunken party was filled with win and it was a relief to have some humor mixed into this seriousness. You fit that scene in seamlessly with the rest of the story, too. As it wound toward the ending nothing seemed forced or rushed, but like a culmination that had been building ever so slowly.
BTW, I was thrilled that D. is good at chess here 'cause that's my personal head cannon, too. :)
Thanks so much for writing and posting, this was very enjoyable.

Love your story. I'm super tired right now, so I'll leave you a better comment in the morning, but I had to let you know right away how great this is. Thanks for writing!

Hi im sorry but i accidentally hit the review button before finishing what i was saying. What i want you to know is that you are so good at writing emotions. I feel like david and i have the same sadness and anger and that is a hard thing to do. His feeling of hoplessness and abandonment are so real to me. I want you to also know that you are an incredible writer and even though i dont have an account ill be following this story

Ive only read up to ch 12 but ive been crying almost coninuosly. Im a boy who is not straight and ive battled depression and bipolar disorder for years, which eventually resulted in a suicide attempt that i told no one about. This story made me feel so much, davids sadness is a palpitable thing that feels as real as mine does

Aaaaahhhh. I'm not really a big Kurt fan, but recently I've come across some authors who just... do him the way he should have been done, in the show. Ya'know? And you're one of 'em. This is the complicated, deep-thinking, constantly-evolving Kurt we all saw glimpses of, but got brushed aside in canon. Thank you. Your Kurt is more than a stereotype who lets his more 'manly' boyfriend walk all over him, and I freakin' love it. Srsly. Thanks for your hard work.

So beautiful, a cycle of rises and falls in emotion but never boring. I can't wait for the finale, I know it will make me cry but it will be so worth it!

Okay, I was wrong. Dave's gonna be fine. And Paul. Therapy. YES. That gives me hope for both of them.
Too bad Kurtofsky is out of bounds here, purely due to the circumstances.
And Santana. Blimey. Also, your Brittany was magnificent.
I'm looking forward to the rest. )

Lovely, perfect balance of elation and sobering drama! This is the way it should have gone in canon, Kurt getting in and Rachel not, but at the same time I love that you weren't overly harsh on Rachel. It made the whole momentum much more heartbreaking and made her and her ordeal much easier to sympathize with.
Absolutely love how you ended this chapter (that'(s not news, I'm always a fan of your endings), with a couple of lines you clearly showed Dave's and Kurt's level of intimacy and that was fantastic.

Seems like you've introduced rationality into the inconsistent world of teenage emotions. And you did it remarkably.
What a passionate chapter! So sweet and funny too. Good job!

Ahh, to have Kurt and Blaine be this mature in canon... That's the dream! I loved their conversation, it had the right level of awkward between them and I'm glad they found a way to stay friends even after everything. Plus having Kurt describe Dave like a yes and no option... Basically this was what I always wanted for these three characters at that point of season 2. Perfect!

I like the way you addressed Kurt's feelings about Dave. It makes sense, I think.
Also, you took the time to focus on the way Kurt felt about a lot of things, and it all fits. That was good. And, as ever, it was all believably and beautifully written.
I still have this dread of a later chapter, or even an epilogue, featuring Dave's funeral. I fear he's still not strong enough to make it.
