YOU BROKE MY FUCKING SOUL-
Actually, I want to applaud you for this TEAR-JERKING, HEART CRUSHING, AND PAINFUL MASTERPIECE. It was amazing and it was almost like a rollercoaster ride.
The beginning started off happily; y'know, light-hearted and pretty bright. I was looking forward to the character development and I love how much Lovino and Ludwig got along so well through witty replies and playful banters. Also, the ridiculousness these three had. It was very infectious that I was laugh to myself as well or smile at my phone's screen. But then came that last line from the first chapter about Feliciano not being able to sleep.
I was going nuts in that part. It was very subtle and it made so much sense as to why little Feli couldn't sleep, but then a few days stretched to weeks, and God, that's where everything crashed. The constant worries, the guilt, the regret, and the unspoken words between Ludwig and Lovino as they watched Feli. It was devastating. Heck, I cried all throughout the damn thing.
Then here comes the death and fail attempt at coping. Then the pretending. When I thought you were finally going to heal us with some more character development between Ludwig and Lovino, ANOTHER PLOT COMES IN AND HITS ME LIKE A TRUCK. Seriously? YOU HAD TO DO THAT?
Well, for the third chap: I feel absolutely horrible. You know the feeling that despite knowing the outcome, you still fight? You fight till the end and UGH. Still, I can't deny that despite the heartaches and snots flying, I loved the part where the German was immensely worried about Lovino learning his language and right when the friendliness was becoming too realistic, he lists all the curse words he knows. In that part, I was laughing, but it turned into a sobbing mess, then laugh again, and more brokem sobs. LET'S JUST SAY THAT THIS IS DRIVING ME INSANE. I'm genuinely in pain, even at this moment. It hurt so bad that I could almost physically feel it. I might even have, but was too busy crying over it. You, my friend, are absolutely amazing.
KUDOS TO THIS AND TO YOU.

Very sad and beautiful. Heartbreaking at times. It was very original and interesting. There were moments when I was smiling, moments when I even laughed (when Lovino cursed in german, for instance), and moments when it was very painful and heartbreaking. Chapter 3 was even sadder than Chapter 2 in my opinion, but I was still hoping, in the beginning, that everything would be allright. But then Lovino said to Ludwig that he couldn't sleep, and it was like a punch in the stomach. And then Lovino reached out for Ludwig's hand... it was that moment which made my heart break.
I love how you ended the story. "Footsteps". Every time you wrote about them, I was feeling anxious. It was it, especially, which made it so easy to imagine how terrible the whole thing must have been for Ludwig. And let's add it : it was beautifully written.
So thank you for this one !

Man, this was truly, heartbreakingly beautiful. You're style of writing is amazing. Everything seemed so perfect and then it just went to hell. You really know how to mess with people's feelings. In a good way

Hello! Long time reader here! I have been reading your stories since I was a pre-teen and you fictions have a very dear place in my heart. Now that I am older I am rereading your beautiful stores and I must say they are absolutly amazing! I could compliment you all day long on how well you write but nothing I say can do justice! I was wondering if you have ever thought of writting a book? You have so much talent and the plots you have are so unique I can't even be able to tell that it is a fanfiction! My absolute favorite story you have so far is "Footsteps" and if you were to make the story a bit longer and change the characters slightly to fit into your own story, you would certainly have a wonderful book! I can ot tell you how much your writing means to me and if you ever wrote a book I will certainly be the first one to buy it! You spend all this time writing fanfiction, but if you invested some time in writing books I would die of happiness! Im really serious about the book thing! Anyways, I just want to thank you for bringing me so much joy reading your masterpeices, and I hope there is more to come! (But really though, you would make an amazing author, if you ever decide to actually write a book im sure you have plenty of fans who would be willing to support you! Me included!)

Goddammit. Extremely well written, with a lot of well placed foreshadowing, and actually loyal to the disease (almost as if you knew someone suffering with it...) I'm crying.

Well, someone posted a link to this and said it was sad and then I got interested, and I can honestly say...
You killed me.
You see, from the first chapter, we all knew this wasn't going to be happy. Because you told us that. However, the happiness of the first chapter is so prolonged that eventually, you just forget. It was nice and fluffy and simply enjoyable and very well-written. But then, the last two lines come to get you. And then, you remember.
Then comes chapter one's deliquent, "bad boy" boyfriend, chapter two, who pretends to be your friend for about a week, but then jumps you, kicks you while you're down, steals your wallet/purse/man purse/backpack/etc. and runs off with it, leaving you crying whilst on the ground and in pain.
After this comes chapter two's second cousin twice removed who never liked chapter one to begin with, and decides to take that out on her friends, AKA you. He, like chapter two, starts out nice to you, but then breaks into your house, stabbing you thirty-seven times in the chest, buys your house, and somehow gets ahold the money you had on the credit cards you canceled after chapter two stole your wallet.
In short, you killed me, I'm dead, and I applaud you for that.
Jolly good show!

It is 3:30 A.M. My pillowcase is soaked with silent tears and choked breaths. I only wish I could leave a more eloquent review for such a story. Thank you.

I decided to do a reread of sorts for the first fanfic things I ever read. This is one of them. You win. The most upsetting thing I think I've read fanfic wise. You beat DOLFIN. Congratulations. This is so well made, and oh so upsetting.

wow this is nicely done, and it hurt a lot. I like how the constant reminder was the footsteps
| maelerie chapter 3 . 4/6/2015
My heart broke along with Ludwig's the further I read. I cried, and that happens almost never when I read a fic. But this one... Oh, this fic was heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time. You have an astounding talent, my dear. Thank you for writing this.
