In the end and all throughout, I was met with a reason to shed tears.
This was such a wonderful story, and I'm so glad that my first assumption about Edward being the cause of everything was wrong. The story was so poetically tragic, but hope filled at the end.
Thanks for sharing your brain and writing talent with us!

Thank you for writing this beautiful yet bittersweet story. Never have the deaths of the Jessica and Emmett characters affected me more than in this story. Both were heroic and tragic.
Thank you for writing an adult story.
Thank you for breaking down the story at the start of chapters after not posting for a while.
I hope you continue to write. (especially Twilight-Edward /Bella stories) Hint hint.

Gimme a sec here I'm trying to process what I just read...
*Fifteen minutes later*
GAH! Still all a jumbled mess. Okay, then we have to do this the familiar way... meaning me rambling around with little to none sense :)
Since I only finished reading the last chapter right before I got the epi notification, this is going to be a combined review.
That being said-
Why is the Emmett gone?! (yes, PotC reference because I just watched a clip in which Sparrow was asking why the rum was gone... random, I know. Nevermind me...) No, but seriously, that was such a shocker! This outcome never once crossed my mind until his talk with Bella about Rose! Even then, him playing guinea pig for the cause (or rather, Rose from herself) was out of the question in my head!
I guess I should have known better.
And I do get your reasoning and it does make sense! It's actually kind of beautiful in it's own and twisted way. And a picture-perfect ending wouldn't have fitted the tone of the story, anyway, I think. Yes, it was a sacrifice and a painful one at that, but it was the best they could have gotten giving the circumstances.
That doesn't mean I didn't pout a bit after reading that...
AND THEN YOU GO AND END THE EPI LIKE *THAT!
Yes, yes, yes - beautiful and poetic and coming full circle/in reference to how the prologue ended, and amazing and heartbreaking and just... all the feeeeels evoking, but seriously-
Can. You . Not!?
Write pretty words all the time. String five little words together and make them mean so freaking much. Try to break my heart and ruin my life every chance you get?!
*"I saved the world for you."*
Right in the heart with that one. I may or may not have choked up a bit there.
I can't even threat you with being grounded because it's so damn good and clever and heartbreakingly beautiful! *le sigh*
So yeah, I'm rambling again, but let me just say this real quick.
Amazing story. Amazing words. Amazing writer. Amazing person.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and taking us on this journey.
Much love 3
*I'll ground your ass next time around :)

Thank you so much for your story. I have loved every chapter even though I didn't review before. These last couple chapters made me quite emotional. You are such a talented writer and I thank you for sharing your story.

This is one of my most favorite stories. What a wonderful ending.
| Cat Named Easter chapter 21 . 6/18/2013
This was a beautiful and touching story...simply brilliant!
| Sunshinemommy chapter 21 . 6/18/2013
And it ends as beautifully as it began :)
"I destroyed the world for you."
"I saved the world for you."
Just a few letters really, one small word, but what a world of difference! So fitting, too, that Carlisle, the man of reason and science would destroy the world for Rosalie while Emmett, the man of love and emotion would lay down his life to fix it for her. And, in doing so, would finally convince Rose that this life is worth living.
Perfect ending for a perfect story :) I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed this story. You are a master storyteller :) Thank you!

ok...um...I am kinda crying hard here. I will miss your Emmett, he was a wonderful character. I will miss this story too. It was so very different, and very well written. I never thought I would so get into this but it was just a wonderful story. Good job and thank you so much for sharing it.

Thank you so much for writing such a wonderful story. What I loved most about this was how different from everything else out there it is. Beautiful writing.

Man... I'm so not ready for this to be over. It was amazing. Thank you. :)

Everyone comments on how wonderful Jessica is/was in this story and I certainly wouldn't argue with them. (Actually you have drawn all the characters so well I would be hard pressed to choose a favourite). Reading the epilogue has made me reflective and I now feel that perhaps Rosalie is the true star in this tale. She has come a long way from the young vampire selfishly trying to reverse time so she can be human again. She has shown strength, love and compassion, particularly to Bella, Jessica and Edward. She has admitted her mistakes and in doing so risked losing everyone that matters to her. She would have given her life to set things right had Emmett not beaten her to it and she has paid dearly in losing both him and Jessica.
I love that after Carlisle destroyed the world for her, Emmett saved it. I am hoping she accepts his gift and allows herself to live now.
This was a poignant end to a truly beautiful story. I don't think I can say enough to convey how much I have enjoyed reading each and every chapter. To think that originally I was going to wait for you to complete it and I would have missed out on our wonderful interaction through reviews and replies!
Thanks as always:)
