I honestly don't like Elena at all in this, she made me so mad. Every time I read this she does. She acts like Damon is the only one at fault here, but she's made big mistakes as well, even if she didn't kill and drink blood. It seemed like this whole fanfic was Elena judging Damon for the mistakes hes made but hers were never really talked about. They were swept under the rug as always and Damon was such a pushover.
I loved your writing and I hope to see you write more of Delena, I just didn't really like this Elena or Damon but I loved the way you wrote it.

Very good angst, very good make up, very good everything!
Missing you in the world of fanfics (but keeping my thumbs pressed for you in the world of original fiction!)

Beautiful, again. Love, love, love. The feelings are pure awe, joy, and wonderment. I wonder if Elena ever becomes a vampire...

And I get to leave another review because, apparently, I wasn't logged in.
I am in awe of your writing style. I think that's what I like about reading so much. You make 'the feels' so real, I'm actually there, experiencing it, not just hearing about it second hand. The good and the bad. Some people can't nail both, but you do. A sincere, heartfelt 'you rock!' because you do. Thank you for not only writing, but writing and sharing. I am making my way through your Desperate Love trilogy and I'm glad I did. Back to that next week!

I seriously love you for writing this story alone. Even more than for "Inevitable." I don't think i've EVER read a fanfic that delved so deeply and with such amazing laser precision into the nature of Damon Salvatore. Not to mention eloquence and poetry. You're incredibly talented. I'm saying that not only because of the aforementioned psychoanalysis, but also because you manage to balance cutting, witty humour and sarcastic banter between Elena and Damon (and every other character) with moments of such powerful tenderness and passion so evocatively that i can almost hear the characters talking here, next to me.
It's 3 a.m. and i'm probably rambling, but i just wanted to thank you. It really is rare to read a story that shakes you up the way this one did me. You see those characters with such clarity and depth of understanding, that it amazes me and makes me want to just sit quietly and ponder the million and one aspects of humanity that make us such frustratingly complicated creatures.
Also, i know it's two or three years too late, but i'd still like to congratulate you on becoming a published author. :)))
And now that i've checked your profile page and seen that i have plenty more stories (and books! Yum, gonna go on shopping spree tomorrow. :D ) i know there is plenty more of your goodness still to read through and savour. It's like finding a forgotten stash of christmas presents in the middle of february, when you're sick of the dark and the cold and suddenly feel fuzzy and excited again and spring doesn't seem so far away.
Did i mention, that i'd like to thank you? ;)
All the best,
love from Poland.
PS. To paraphrase Tim Minchin, if someone could make me write like you, i'd give them my piano, one of my legs and my wife. ;)
Sorry for the long ramble this turned out to be.

That was very nice, the smut perfect as always! I just wondering if Elena it's ok with the possibility of becoming a vampire.., and I reeeally miss bloodplay! I went to buy your stories, but then I saw people talking about the PG, and whaaat? Sorry, I do like a good plot and stuff, but the lemon part to me it's just so essential... I'm happy for you, tough. If this is what really matters for you, then you should do it :)

This was an awesome end to an awesome story. I like that Damon decided to tell her everything he did while he was away, and I love how she still stayed and tried to understand where he had been coming from.

Poor Elena. I can understand Jeremy's concern for her, but at least Damon's back now. At least he's back and she won't have to go through that hell anymore.
| SpobyOTP chapter 2 . 5/30/2014
Poor Elena. I understand, I think, what she meant about not being able to forgive Damon and then wanting to forgive him at the same time. It's that righteous part of her that absolutely revolts at the acts Damon has committed, but then again, the irrational part of her that is able to brush away all of those things, urges her to go against her better judgment and forgive him.

Very good first chapter. Elena trying to get into Damon's head is definitely a tricky challenge. I wondered what she would think when he fessed up to killing Bree, but he did have a point. She was the one who almost got him killed by calling Lexi's boyfriend. If it hadn't been for her though, Elena would have never begged for his life, or wanted to let it be known he meant something to her.
The talk about rape was very powerful and meaningful to me. It shows that, even though Damon has done horrible things in his past, there's a line he won't cross and that's that.
