All I can say is...THANK YOU.
This is one of my all-time favorite stories & it really was exceptional in every way. Never once was I disappointed in a chapter, never once did I not FEEL something. God, I loved this story so much.
Your writing was phenomenal, I cannot compliment you enough. And the ending was the perfect culmination of such a heartfelt situation. I had tears in my eyes when Murphy walked & Connor hugged him saying over & over "You're walking...you're walking." So beautiful.
I sincerely hope you write the MacManus brothers again, you have your finger on their pulse & have a talent for presenting their intricate personalities.
Again...thank you most sincerely. Beautiful story.

Aw...this brought tears to my eyes! THAT moment... Connor dropping his coffee... Murphy dropping the crutches... Aw, I love this so much! Thanks for writing it! I'll probably even re-read it, because it was that good! xx

thanks for this beautiful touching fic,I loved it so much.
I loved the way you ended it..with twins walking together, "almost like they're stuck together"
I loved the hospital scene,when Murphy tried to reach Connor without using his crutches and Connor froze and thought Murphy is walking!...it was the moment both of them were waiting for (and we were as well) and then the clapping...for Murphy,and Connor (oh yes,for Connor as well..) God I loved that scene,it made me cry...
lots of love and hugs for you...thanks again.

I just wanted to say how much I really enjoyed reading your creation. It was just fabulous. Reading the unrelenting love that Connor and Murphy have for each other. You wrote it all extremely well and I never felt the lack of anything in any chapter. I also never felt like any chapter was dragging as I usually would. The adolescent world of Connor and Murphy McManus that you created was just phenomenal.
I'm so very proud to have read it. Well done!

Loved the ending. So sweet, and just so right for them. Hope to read more from you soon!

Another great chapter! Thanks for writing it. It's nice to see Murphy starting to get out of the house more. And aw...poor Connor, freaking out! I love how you write their relationship. Looking forward to the next chapter! xx

Murphy's little temper tantrum at being confined to his wheelchair was actually kind of cute, he can be such a kid sometimes & his change in mood after the crutches are returned was amusing.
I think I felt Connor's heart skip a beat when Murphy was doing the loping hobble run, but I felt for Murphy, he wants to walk on his own so badly. When I had crutches (for 4 weeks), I remember getting to a point when I moved quite quickly & scared the crap out of everyone, they thought I would fall. So what you wrote was exactly perfect & true to life. Their little fight on the road, Connor having to let Murphy go, then confessing his feelings...all wonderfully written. Loved it completely.
Ah...the return to the scene of the accident. I've been waiting for them to go back. You did not disappoint. Of course Murphy would relive the most terrible moment in his life but he has Connor to pull him back. Connor was with him then & he's with him now. You wove that into his memory beautifully.
Such angst you capture in both boys, such drama you bring to life. Incredible writing.
Murphy not wanting pity. Love how he starts out uncomfortable & unsure before telling her he's just Murphy and he doesn't want people feeling sorry for him. Love how he finds his inner strength.
This chapter was exceptional. Another great addition to your story.

Aw, I love fussy-Connor getting all freaked out about Murphy falling like that. Great writing, as usual. And Ma...putting money back into Connor's jar... I love it. I LOVE this family! Thanks for writing. I'll keep reading!

Loved it as always...
I loved that Murphy wanted to see that road again and how you explained his perception and feelings at that time,and how Connor's voice was the only thing that made him to hold on and be strong...
I enjoyed this chapter so much..too bad that this beautiful and (yet one of my most favorite) fic is going to end.

great chapter! I love this story!

This chapter was more than okay...it was phenomenal and every word warmed me to my toes, it's just so wonderful to read a new chapter. I've missed this story beyond belief.
You write Murphy's inner turmoil well with the part about him staring at his legs and tracing the scars. His pain came across as very subtle and that's the sign of a good writer...it didn't need to be extreme to get your point across. And of course, Murphy would be haunted by what he sees. Scars like that would be hard to live with but even harder at his age and I like that you put that in, it's very realistic.
I love how Murphy is trying to be independent. And I love even more how hard it is for Connor to suppress his protective instincts and let him go to the store alone. Really great idea.
A short ten minute walk...on crutches...that would be difficult to do. I respect that it was hard for him and I can see him struggling to do it. Great writing.
Murphy falling...the realism was outstanding, I could just picture that happening. Anyone who's ever been on crutches has had either a fall or a close call to falling but given that BOTH his legs were injured, this again screams reality. I cannot compliment you enough on putting his fall into your story.
I felt so bad for Connor and his panic at seeing what happened to Murph. His reaction was crushing and painful. Love the angst.
The bit about the milk killed me...so funny! Love how they tease and torture each other.
Ma putting money back in Connor's tin was a sweet touch.
Brotherly moments I'd like to see? Okay...you asked, LOL. I'd like to see Connor becoming even more protective after Murph's fall and see how hard it is for him to let Murph be independent. I'd like to see Murphy want to go to the scene of the accident with Connor and then maybe break down or have a panic attack. I'd like to have someone, maybe a pretty girl, react badly to Murphy's crutches or his scars and the emotions in both twins as a result. And if that's not enough, I can't wait for Murphy to walk across a room to Connor.
Really wonderful update. I still love this story with all my heart. Fantastic writing. PLEASE update soon.
