Thank you so much for allowing me on this journey with you. This is the first Ten Inch Hero NOVEL I have ever read and it was worth the 69 chapters... Trust me.
Through it all, you took us. This is so canon for me now whenever I rewatch my favorite movie.
You took me on a journey. I was there when Priestly met Trucker, started at the Grill, met Jude, Tish, and started his life.
Thank you so much... These words are not helping me do this story the justice it deserves.
May the higher being out there bless you and please never give up on this gift of writing that you so rightfully possess.

This is one of the best fan fictions I've ever read, and I've read a lot! Amazingly good! I loved it!

I made the mistake of reading the last 10 or so chapters while watching TIH. Too many tears, especially when the song comes on from the girls' trip back to Santa Cruz after standing up Fuzzy.
I normally don't like such long fics but you did a fantastic job of getting me so invested I had to finish. Amazing! :)

I am supremely impressed by the serious amount of thought that had to go into this. Technically, I think this counts as a novel. Honestly, I loved it!

I gotta say, this is brilliant! Maybe it's just because it's kind of like my life, but I get where Priestly is coming from, and I wish I had the guts to just take off. I'm glad that Trucker was there for Priestly.

Well. I told myself I was going to resist leaving some long, emotional review when I finally got to the last chapter of this story, but it seems I just couldn't do that. I knew about TIH for years and just got around to watching it about a month ago- then I did what I always do. To the FanFiction. "Born Again" was of the first I found and honestly? I was hooked in the first chapter. The thought and emotion and everything else you poured into Priestly as a character, his story, his background, the people around him. It was f****** phenomenal. It's taken me a few weeks to get through the story- but I've always kept the tab up on one device or another to read it whenever I got a chance. It was just so amazing it was really tough to stay away from the story.
I really loved how you incorporated your own characters- Sally, Scooter, Leo, Joe, and especially Mike and Jude. Such amazing work, I fell in love with them just as much as I did Priestly. You pulled off Trucker -beyond- perfectly, as well.
Not even gonna lie- was really sad when I read the last bit of the last chapter. Choked -myself- up a little bit on that one. Really, this is one of the best stories I've read in such a long time and I'll probably be starting all over at chapter one pretty soon to re-read it all. :)
Just fantastic. :)

This was a fantastic story! Absolutely brilliant! I laughed, cried, smiled, sobbed everything.

Damn, it really hurts to finish reading a story. Especially one as fantastically intricate and involved as yours. I honestly can't describe exactly how painful it is to see something end. I love the sense of self-realization Priestly has for the last paragraph of the story, how it connects the beginning of the story with the end. He realizes exactly how much he's grown in the last seven years. I really do want to cry, but I can't. Do you ever feel that way? Like it's welling up inside out and putting so much pressure you're sure you'll burst... but you don't. You don't break down or anything. Yours is a story that makes it feel like the walls should come crumbling down because it's over, and it can't just be over, something has to happen, but you're just numb. You're aware of how deeply it affected you, but you can't express it in a way that'll do it justice.
Just... thank you. Fuck - thank you so, so much. I would hug you for a long, long time if I could.

oh wow i think this is going to be a long reveiw. First let me state that u are a phenomenal writer and your story was really very amazing. I watched ten inch heroes awhile ago and finallly got aroung to reading some fanfiction now. I was getting a little dissapointed after paging thru four fanfics but then i started reading yours. Omigosh it was so good and i couldnt tear myself away from the computer. I finished it in two days and my eyes felt strained for awhile. I really really really like the backstory and the whole before the movie pat. I extremely enjoyed that. Afterwards it got really intense and depressing for me at times. I felt it was alot of tish hate. I for one loved the pairing so its a bit of an open wound for me so i feel some strong feelings. And honestly it felt alot of just like kicking priestly when hes down and everything going bad form him. And you just made tish and mike look like such horrible people. Like i honestly dont think she would beleive that priestly would leave her if the baby was his. I mean she just got over telling him a few days ago that he was such a nice and caring person and too good for her when they were breaking up. I also feel likes mikes personality took a 180 turn just to make him seem bad. Anyway thats just my opinion and needed to vent it out. I honestly really love your story but will probably only read up to the movie part because i dont think i can handle all the angst and drama :). Anyway incredibly well written story (although i have an entirely different view of tish :) ) and im very happy u wrote it

loved it! the descriptions of the people and life in the shop are awesome. As someone who works in the food industry myself I can say that the workers and customers are right on. the wicked witch comment made me laugh. been there, bought a DQ ice cream cake with those very lyrics on it!

Tish was still a bitch! And presstly was hott either way and there wasnt nothing wrong with him changeing his appearnce! Crimalxminds shut up! Jensen is hot either way! He made the movie great to watch! Glad im not the only one who hated tish!
| deangirl27 chapter 1 . 3/4/2013

I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed reading this. it was a wonderful experience, exploring Priestly's past and the personalities of the new characters you've introduced. your fanfiction is so intricate and extensive, and I haven't really seen many on this site like it. I honestly couldn't put it down. thank you for writing such a wonderful story!
| agrove chapter 69 . 2/7/2013
Wow, i cried. What an ending! It was so tragically beautiful! This entire story has been absolutely amazing in every possible way and you even threw in some wild twists at the last second. You stuck with it so consistently and turned it into such a journey. Amazing, best fic i've ever had the pleasure of reading!
| agrove chapter 68 . 2/7/2013
Wow, you paint a pretty intense picture! Amazing job, i could picture the entire thing. Thank God Jude is alive but where's Mike? I feel terrible for Priestly during all this, how he's thinking of everything he should have said and done. When bad things happen it really puts life into perspective, makes all the seemingly big things seem to small and trivial.
