Love it. This and PI are my all time favourite fanfics and I've noticed you haven't updated in a few months so i thought I would try and motivate you to write some more! Love them so so so much. I promise if you update this the best you can i will review every update of this and PI!

I'm about 2/3rds the way of re-reading this fic.. and I'm being reminded of just how breathtaking it is. It's heartbreaking, and devastating but also so lovely. As much as you know I adore Peter, I do love that it's Trevor who is being her rock throughout this. I like how you are showing that Peter is succumbing to his feelings for her however and being jealous. I know you feel uninspired by this at the moment and there is no pressure for you to update what so ever (I'm currently blissfully enjoying and appreciating your fabulous updates of kinky carter ;)) but I wanted to remind you how brilliant this is - you put so much time and effort into your writing and it really does show, you just shine as a writer.. I wish my reviews didn't always sound so repetitive but you're one of the few writers I've ever seen that just make me more and more hooked and fail to make mistakes. I mean it when I say your fics are on par if not better than probably even the best books I've read - you have such a talent I wish more people could appreciate it. x Leah x

Finally caught up on this fic. What depressing stuff :( Carla really has been through enough trials and tribulations. I can't believe Frank would go out of his way to take her to court for this great loss. He really is a narcissist because there isn't one thing that he won't twist as being done against him personally.
I am glad that Helen, Barry, Maria, and Leanne are all finally in Carla's corner. I liked Leanne saying that Carla's confession to Stella was brave. I also liked the bonding that Maria and Carla did as well. I am glad she is strengthening her personal relationships because without the support of those who care about her she won't get through Frank's sick games. I like that this fic emphasizes she can't get through all this pain alone. So even when at times it can seem what is happening to Carla is impossibly cruel in the same hand I feel somewhat cheered up by everyone's united front.

I've just posted a rushed mini rant as the rather insulting review one person left really riled me up.
But then I realized I hadn't actually reviewed this (beautiful, emotional and amazing) chapter yet, especially as I was the one pestering you about it.
I'm never ever suprised when I end the chapter, and genuinely just sit there in silence for a few minutes.
I grow more and more amazed by your talent, your writing is so emotive, so rich and so full of character.
I've never disagreed more with a review. I feel the opposite, as do, I'd say, 99% of other readers, hence the hundreds of praising reviews and views on this incredible piece of writing.
Don't let one comment get you down. You have a talent, you're a brilliant writer, and I look forward to each and every update you write. I stop what I'm doing, and give each chapter 100% of my attention.
You awesome person :)

Genuinely felt the need to actually comment on "Diane's" review - everyone is entitled to their own opinion but when I feel someone has such a seriously incredible talent as dipdipdipmyblueship I can't just ignore it.
I disagree so so much with your comment. "Flowery?" FLOWERY? Her writing is fucking brilliant, emotive, lush, descriptive but mostly REAL. I've never read such realistic fics, and more to the point her characterisation IS spot on - I feel as though I'm in the story, Carla is so painfully similar to her tv character I find it hard to remember which story lines are made up and which actually happened in the show.
Truth may hurt - but what you wrote isn't the truth Diane!

As you can see, I have approved your "review" of this fic. I use the term "review" incredibly loosely as what you wrote was not at all constructive in its criticism. In fact it came across as more of a rant of a tantrum-throwing child, than that of a mature reader.
I will not apologize for my use of vocabulary nor for my writing style in my fics. It is uniquely my own and has been received well by many readers thus far. It is not for everyone though and if you do not find it to your liking, there are plenty of other stories on this section of the site that may be more to your tastes without needing to insult the author publicly via their review section:
"...a bunch of flowery sentiment with descriptives that are not necessary to carry the story forward." What you are accusing me of is called 'purple prose' just for the record,...and yes, it is an insult.
I do not know why you felt the need to threaten your intent to make an account on this site in your post, but by all means, please go ahead a make an account here on ; but do not do so simply for the purpose of further attempting to discredit me and to insult my writing. I invite you to to PM me your concerns, but any further public 'reviews' like this one on any of my stories and I will block you.
Also, the next time you feel the need to criticize an author's writing style, technique, or vocabulary, please do yourself a favour and ensure YOUR spelling and grammar is correct before posting.
You're you are
Your relating to you or yourself.
And finally Diane, remember that just because you perceive something one way, doesn't necessarily make it so. The hurtful 'truth' as you so eloquently put it, is not as subjective as you may perceive it to be.

I have to say, i'm not a fan of this or any of your other work. Overall I find you're writing to be absolute drivel. you put a bunch of flowery sentiment with descriptives that are not necessary to carry the story forward.
I don't know why people say that you're characterizations are spot on, because they are nowhere near the way they are on tv. Carla would NEVER break down in trevor's arms no matter what. the only person she ever did that for, was liam and now peter. Your trying to build a fandom where there is none. sort of lame in my opinion.
As for your other fics, I'm going to wait until I have an account here before I respond to those so i know the review will be posted for sure. I'm sure you'll delete this review because its not what you want to read, but at least i'm telling the truth.
do yourself a favour and write a fic the normal way; none of this lame descriptive text. Just tell the story. if you need to use a thesarus to help you move a story along, then your not a strong or a good writer.
truth hurts but there it is

Omg franks gone be there..and there's nothing they can do about it..poor carla..trevors a sweetheart..glad that leanne just comforted Carla at the hospital when Frank accused Peter of being the dad, instead of freaking..cnt wait for more..great fic xx
| AlietteJay.Mwah.X chapter 20 . 1/27/2013
Awwr! Carvor;) Its Peters fault he's too late..I reli loved this chApter, not that I dnt love them all. But how strong Carla is in this and the end! Thank you xx
| AlietteJay.Mwah.X chapter 16 . 1/27/2013
She married Paul cuz she was(is) inlove with him. You've stated that before..Are you writing it like that's what Trev thinks? I was expecting to read "the same mistake she had made when she married Tony even though she was still in love with her brother-in-law" ..but youve taken a diffetent rout..I'm so glad Trevs staying calm and holding his anger. If that was Peter, he wuda smacked frank, got himself arrested, and give Frank full entry to Carla..great read..your an amazing writer x
| Noeme chapter 13 . 1/26/2013
Well I just had to review this chapter because any chapter that mentions the Golden Connor boys is a chapter I can't resist fangirling over ;) I loved the touching moment that Carla and Michelle shared remembering the history of the factory and basically reaffirming to one another why it's a must that they do save it.
I adored that Carla stood up to Anne and Sally in the pub and I feel like her confiding in Stella really gave her the strength to in order to so. Sally is such a sheep and so easily manipulated. I dislike her immensely but you write her character perfectly to a tee.
What a vile woman Anne is! It is no wonder her son is such a rotten human being. He learnt from the best. As for his jealousy I shudder to think what more horrible things are to come.
Onto everyone else now: I loved that Trevor helped Carla realize her full potential in that she can hold her own. It is the nicest thing he could have done for her because he is right that Frank doesn't need to see him going to blows for her. It will just play into the Foster's evil game. I am also glad that Nick pulled through for Carla as well. It is awesome to see everyone coming together to form sort of a protective shield around Carla. They are all in it together and reading the dinner scene, just listening to everyone banter and people apologize was heartwarming.
I truly feel bad for Peter though. I honestly felt his pain at the end of the chapter but I do believe that Carla is doing the right thing in not encouraging him. He is basically trying to pull her into an emotional affair but is in a whole lot of denial about this fact (just my thoughts). But it isn't right and it won't work Trevor around.
