Rarely do I read something that hits so succinctly what I am feeling at the moment. I laughed, I cried, I stared at words that seem to mirror my feelings. So thank you for that experience.

man, your stories just kill me, you are wonderful. they really crush me and make me feel deeper for these characters, and if possible root for them even more. thank you.

Wow, I loved this! So glad you put I the epilogue; the way the previous chapter ended, it could have been the end of the whole thing. I am a total canon-Casey hater, but you wrote him really well. I totally appreciated him and the way that he went about the whole situation(s). Thanks for writing this. It was very powerful.

i was hesitant to read this one, cos from the description i thought it might involve cheating and I am not a fan of that, even in fiction. so i'm actually glad you made it so difficult for maura and jane to be together at the beginning. i absolutely found the angst fitting, even if i was tearing up and chastising the characters from time to time.
the whole tension between maura and jane was well written. definitely liked how your metaphors were always related to such powerful, unstoppable forces or things that were volatile. kind of think it would've been cool to stick to the 'electricity' motif in your description, or sticking to a few motifs and just finding different ways to describe that same uncontrollable attraction. although i did like where you started off the story, where jane is aware of her feelings for maura, it would've been cute to see specific moments where jane was falling for maura. also, liked that your main angst point was that jane was already married and her being into another woman was barely an issue.
definitely was not expecting to like casey in this story. it did add to the angst, jane being unable to let go of him for a while. but you made him almost too good of a character, like dam he was upset for like a second and then trynna throw them a wedding/baby shower...
i'm glad i read this fic, a great struggle to rizzles. thanks for sharing it!

*Fist pump* I have never felt more proud of Jane Rizzoli.
Isn't that bizarre, pride over a fictional character? That's your writing that.
*nods head sagely*

This story took one hell of an emotional toll because I became so invested Jane and Maura and both of their well-beings, especially Jane's, since the story was focused on her.
My God. I didn't think I'd make it through. But your writing and the morals you imparted throughout were fantastic. I guess in FanFiction, sometimes you have to suspend your beliefs and even values to empathize with a character, but in this particular story, I never felt like I had to do any of that. I was able to just completely immerse myself in Jane's plight and feel without any buffers what she was going through.
That you could create so much tension was just...unbearably wonderful.
Maura was such a genuine person here; I love that she stood up for herself and didn't let anything more happen between her and Jane when the time wasn't right.
I enjoyed the mind blowing therapy sessions as well. You wrote that so well.
Thank you for this story. It's one of my favorites.
