This was a seriously amazing story! As soon as I started reading, I couldn't stop until I got to the end. I had a really tough time imagining a happy ending that didn't end in Santana and Brittany somehow running away together, and as callous as it might sound for the characters I'm glad you ended it the way you did. I feel that realistically Brittany would have refused to leave her son behind, but seeing as Samuel was the king's only heir there was no way they could have taken him with them and remained safe.
Lol, I know you know all this - you wrote it after all. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I fully appreciate the amount of thought you put into the ending and how masterfully you were able to show the readers that a true happy ending simply wasn't possible for Santana and Brittany in that lifetime. The ending was satisfying because it gave the sense that their deaths weren't for nothing, and because I loved the hopeful joy of the reincarnation segment. I haven't felt this fulfilled by a fic in a long time, and I know I've said it already, but seriously - this was amazing. Thank you.

*. Possible spoiler for ending. *
I know I'm a little late at finding this story but I'm really glad I found it ! After reading it thought I feel like the song Past Lives by Borns is a perfect soundtrack for the last chapter :)

So, I know you probably don't care anymore but damn! I have read A Lot of Brittana fics, and i can safely say that this is one of a hand full that almost made my eyes leak :P sucks we won't be graced with new stories from you :(

This is the first story I've ever read (online or in print) where I puked from reading it. Don't get me wrong - that's a compliment. My stomach had been in knots for so long that the paragraph about Brittany's death broke me. Maybe it's because it's 3am and I read this entire story in airports and on flights and the whole day has been a blue. But thinking for so long there would be this happy ending for Brittany and Santana even though in the back of my mind I knew this was going to end painfully - for it to be worse than the painful ending I imagined was too much. Also, the whole beheading thing is gross and that probably played a role. But I think my body also felt the pain that must have been in Santana's stomach, not to mention Puck and Matthew's. Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful story, even though it caused such an unpleasant physical reaction. I promise that vomit is the highest compliment.

I cannot express how much this story affected me today. I just started this last night and couldn't put it down. I purchased it on my Kindle as well. Thanks for the story

I didn't know how you could have possibly wrapped up this story after the previous chapter but you still somehow managed to do it justly. Kudos to Matthew for finally being able to be the honorable person that he is. Him parroting Artie's words back to him was so impeccably fitting. Sam being the one to end Archibald's life was perfect, avenging Brittana's death and bring everything full circle. Also, the fact that he became the one to rule the lands and to raise Samuel is also perfect. Seriously, I have no words for how brilliant your storytelling is. Thank you for writing about the reincarnation of modern day Brittana as well. Britt as a toy maker and San as a healer, just like they always wanted. It was also nice to see Sam, Tina, and Mike in their lives too all living and happy. Again, perfect. I have no other words. Thank you!

I am bawling like a little baby. I knew from the beginning that they were star-crossed lovers and that fate had dealt them a difficult hand, but the eternal romantic in me couldn't help but wish that they would somehow be able to steal away in the middle of the night with Samuel. I realize, however, that this is the most realistic end to the story and am thereby happy that you were courageous enough to take it into this direction. I love how brave Brittany is with her unrelenting need to protect Santana, even to her own demise, and Santana's ability to finally be the woman that Brittany deserved, to be her knight in the end. Regardless of my blurry vision and aching chest, this has been one truly amazing story. It's tragically beautiful. Thank you for sharing your talents with us. Brilliant job!

You really know how to manipulate my emotions! Lol Brittany's fatigued statements and Santana's anguish totally teared me up. Great job. :o)

thus far i loved every chapter ...was holding my breath the for a while ...
| TTshorty33 chapter 24 . 11/15/2015
I understand why u killed them and I would have understood why they could never be publicly together but still I didn't think you'd actually kill them. bold move. I however was great work the ending, so thank you for that. also after watching xena, and reading the story santana told I figured that's where you were going but still just bam head gone! !

Well I'm quite sure that I gonna dream of two lifeless heads tonight.
It's a bit creepy but it's how I feel about your story. Haunted. I didn't cry much when i was reading this but I dream of your story everynoght after reading it (till now it's been 3 days)
Lucky for me I had predicted the end at the chapter when Santana told Britt about "the another life". A perfect ending. A incredible story. It's a truly story, not just a fanfiction. Oh how I'd love to see a movie based on it.
However, I must say that this is the saddest story I ever read. (considered I've read a huge amount of fanfics) I have the feeling at chapter 2 and yet I still read it. Worths time and fluctuate emotions.
Thank you for sharing and creating this story. Years later I'll look back in my fangirl time and eventually remember your story. Once again it makes me feel things that none of the fics I read before can make.

I read the entire thing in two days, two because I finished it at seven the next day after I started reading. I just couldn't sleep without knowing what'll happen next or feeling like I'll have a horrendous nightmare if I sleep without finishing it. I love how realistic your story is and how every character is interesting and special in their own right. I love how you fit everything so perfectly and how you just blew me away. Thank you for sharing this awesome story.
