|Reviews for Goodbyes On The Balcony|
| Impressed chapter 3 . 8/20
So not sure you will see this, but ive been on a sudden fanfic binge (after not reading any in almost a decade) and I am reading this whole series in a straight shot. And, to be honest, I only really continued through the first one because there is so much story here and I am running out of completed stories. I almost stopped several times, because the first two installments often lagged. But I am really impressed reading this story. In sequence with the others, it is really easy to see how much your writing skills evolved and improved, and seeing that kind of growth is really encouraging, inspiring, and just plain awesome (my inner writing instructor may be taking over here). But in case you are still reading reviews, I thought you should know that the progress is notcible and impressive (and I am actually something of a professional, albeit not in creative writing,so for what its worth that is my professional assessment). The switch to 1st-person pov was particularly inspired. And on a non-technical note, it’s also really clear how much you must have matured in real life as the wayyou approach the characters and situations also matured so much. I know this is a wierd blend of compliments and half-compliments, but based on your authors notes I think we are probably of an age, and it is really cool to see that evolution in your writing because it gives me hope that my own abilities have evolved as well, and it makes me jealous that i never made such an ongoing project to look back on and see that change for myself.
Tl;dr, your writing has matured really well, and it is really cool to see that playout in this series

What can I say... this story made me cry, it upset at times and it made me smile so hard !
You might not be JK Rowling but know that your talent with words has enthralled and mesmerized me ! Thank you for sharing this incredible story, thank you for bringing these characters to life, for giving them a voice despite their tragic and heartbreaking endings. I so admire you for that. Thank you !

This story is just so hard to follow with the first person narration. Feels like it's constantly jumping around. The plot is also jumping around and nothing much happens except "i love you! I love you more!" or "can't believe they broke up! can't believe he broke up with me!"...the last two stories were great, but I can't read this one. It's way too all over the place.

I think it should be clear that I'm not exaggerating when I say that I am suffering one of the worst book hangovers I've ever had. Maybe even worse than after I finished reading Harry Potter. I'm not sure who I love more: J.K. Rowling for creating this world or you for writing this. I just can't do anything write now but think about how amazing this trilogy is. It's made me feel things I never thought a book could make me feel. These characters have become my family. And it hurts so much to know that I have to say goodbye to all of them.
Thank you so much for writing this!

Yes! Finally. Yes!
| Kim Richards chapter 26 . 4/12
Okay I am sorry. WHAT?! She really needs to hold herself. I get she is hurt but its just taking it to far. I hope she is still not mad at Sirius after this. LILY YOU ARE BEING A IDIOT!
| Kim Richards chapter 24 . 4/12
How the hell can you even make Sirius sleep with Lily? Do you know how that makes me feel? Why? I just hope that their friendship is not ruined. And why is Remus being such an ass? I hope something works out between all of them. I really like the whole Keegan and Sirius thing. Serves Riley right. And I hope she does come back. And I am not proud of Lily too. Thanks. NB: This is the longest review I have ever postest. Nice to remove the anger from my chest. Thanks again.

For some odd reason, this fic crossed my mind today so I decided to pop in for a reread! I’d forgotten just how long it was! I’m stoked to experience it all over again

I just want to say THANK YOU!
I loved the whole Balcony series and I'm so glad I discovered it when it was complete as I think I would've gone mad waiting for updates.
Thank you again!

| Azzurrolunali chapter 58 . 6/21/2017
Thanks so much for an amazing story! I've loved and hated it so much, I hated the extended James and Lily hating each other, I felt it was too negative and bitter. But apart from the length I loved the plot, the characters everything was brilliant! Thanks that you finished it on a high as I couldn't have coped with a negative end after all that! I love the idea of the AU, I mean it already is AU (James' big family etc) so a good ending? Any chance? Thanks again for all the work you put into that story!

Oh wow - ok so I somehow missed this story over the last 12 years and found it last week, you are amazing - the speed at which I managed to read this suggests that in itself!
Over the course of this story I both loved and hated each character but I have never been so emotionally involved in a fanfic before!
Beautiful writing, full of heartbreak and I really felt for every character (my favourite is Sirius).
Thank you for writing such a wonderful story.
