I definitely had to reread after I figured out how died. The whole time, I totally had the impression that Martin was dying, right up until I read the headstone. Typical Arthur, isn't it, to be so cheerful, even unto the end of everything.

Eep! Uh...I'll admit I had to do a bit of re-reading. Heh. So sad! The saying on his headstone... ;-;
Very good, thanks for sharing.

Well, that was unexpected. And beautiful and terribly sad.
| hajimebassaidai chapter 1 . 3/6/2013
Totally didn't see that coming! Oh, Arthur! Just perfectly pitched. Loved it (and hated it slightly, in the best way!)

HOLY CRAP AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS MARTIN THAT DIED BUT IT WAS ARTHUR AHHHHHH
| RadicalCowboy chapter 1 . 9/2/2012
Serious ouch material, so well-written. Had not an inkling that it would end that way, and rereading makes it even more tragic.

OHMYGOD I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT. NO NONONONONO.
Wow, I found this fic through the cabin pressure fic rec tumblr and just, wow. That was painful but so good. Well done.

I LOVE THIS IT'S BEAUTIFUL

Wow. Very clever and sneaky, I totally thought it was Martin dying until the last line and then I had to go back and read it again with the new perspective and its genius! Ah you are so sneaky playing with my emotions like that! Brilliant!

*gross sobbing* oh god... oh god DX Why do I read these? Do I like the pain? I don't know... But that was amazing xxxx

I can't. I can't, I can't, I never will again be able to can.
WHAT MASTERPIECERY IS THIS?
A rough guide to my thoughts while reading:
- Oh, Martin angst. Bless him, there's no end to it. Okay *clicks on story*
- Oh. Exceptionally *good* Martin angst.
- Damn this is sad.
- Oh Arthur my sweet one, how adorably tragic are you trying to cheer up a dying man.
- Damn, this is really quite excellent, in that awful way angst has.
- Okay, definitely qualifies as Really Well Written Martin Angst.
- It always gets me when Douglas cries.
- :( He's gone.
- Hey...wha...but why would they put the wrong na-
- WHAT? WHAT THE FLIP? WHAT? NO! THAT'S NOT WHAT HAPPENED! WHAT?
- Am I crying?
- Okay. Okay, no it's fine. I can totally read this again knowing it's Arthur and it won't be such a shock this time and it won't hurt as much.
- It still hurts as much.
- Am I *still* crying?
(end thought track)
This is the most...I have never been this taken aback. I know you didn't, like, invent the "subtle ambiguity into twist ending" style, but I have never been so shocked and I don't think I've ever seen it used with such...I don't even know, I've read fics where all the way through you're trying to guess who or whatever, but this is the first time I haven't even got the slightest of hints that I might be being totally deceived D:
Arthur is my favourite character in anything ever. This destroyed me. Thank you so very much for writing it.
I shall now shut up because you are probably tired of me. I would be.
*bows to you, and disappears*

Oh my God. My heart is broken. Why would you do this? *sobs*
| Mary Alice chapter 1 . 5/30/2012
Only thing, and it's a bit nit-pickey.

For all that is Holy, dang this hurts. The ending slapped me in the face, and then- after I applied the frozen peas to my jaw- it slapped me again. Good writing.
