oh MY MOTHERFUCKING GOD THIS FIC IS AMAZEBALLS (and also really addictive ur killing me with these cliffhangers) AND LIKE THE TONEREMY OT3NESS GIVES ME LIFE AND in canon I kind of adore Stefan and tolerated damon but in this fic I legit started jumping up and down in this chapter when Jeremy staked him- itz blowin my mind.

It seems kinda unrealistic that they could kill them without one of them dying, I get they have the plan suprise on their side, but I think one of the three would atleast have died.

I wish I could write a review that gives justice to how I felt about your story. I tried to think about it after I read your story. I actually even reread the last few chapters just to see if I could come up with some fitting adjective. All I got is Bravo. I mean from beginning to end, this is masterful. I have never considered the storyline potential of putting Bonnie, Tyler and Jeremy together but once you did, I have been looking for moments with them on the actual show. How I would so love to see your story playing out on the screen than what we actually get to see. I don't love the triangle on the show, because it's not handled realistically or with care. But the one you have with Bonnie, Jeremy and Tyler feels like it is handled realistically without shortchanging any of the real feelings between each character. I thought I wasn't going to say a lot but I continue to write. I can't wait to read Kill Klaus and whatever you write after that. I'm so excited to see what you come up with next!

I just realized I'm on chapter 34 and Tonnie is just now happening one sided though. I kind of want to cry. There are only a few chapters left I hope they're good. I'm soooooo over Beremy at this point though.

I was on the fence about the fic and waiting to make up my mind until the first Salvabro snuffed it, figuring that would be the litmus test...and was super disappointed. Damon's death should have been a HUGE thing that set off character work/reactions and insight for everyone, and it was quickly pushed aside for Klaus and the hybrids and Stefan's betrayal. It made everything that came after ring false. This is a shallower fic than I'd hoped for.

Kinda meh on the Bonnie characterization. Well I was meh on many of the others too but since Bonnie is central I wanted to see where you'd take her. But she's a mish-mash of different Bonnies from different seasons, sometimes she's S1 or S2 Bonnie, sometimes S4. It's like you draw on Old Season Bonnie when it's not justified, a lot of the time.

Sputters with laughter about Elena finding out :)

So many happy feelings running through me... this could only be better if I had ice cream... maybe I'll make someone pick some up for me ;) Lol.

Can I just say... and I mean this with utmost sincerity and gratitude... you MUST be quality people ! This is like one of my long held wishes completely realized. Wonderful title too, concise and filled with wonderful promises :) Hehahahaha! (Joker's laughter a la Heath Ledger)

First chapter down. Love this already.

Sorry, I just read over my earlier reply and realized that I might have given the wrong impression, because I was typing in a hurry: like I said in my original review, it's totally up to you what you do or don't write, obviously! That goes without saying. I'm just...disappointed, I guess? Because I went into this fic hoping that it would give me everything I'd ever wanted when it came to these kids reacting to the abuse they'd suffered from Damon and Stefan, and once again I just encountered an instance of at least one of the victims not really having their abuse and their trauma understood or cared about by the writer. I've just yet to come across a fic that truly respects all these kids enough to do them all justice when it comes to how they've been wronged by the Salvatores, and that's what I'm looking for, because that's what I'm missing from the show.
But thanks again for responding so thoughtfully - like I said, I really appreciated it.

Hi, I hope you don't mind my responding here, I saw your reply to my review on your tumblr and wanted to respond. Thanks for being so kind and understanding in your reply, by the way. I really appreciated it. I just wanted to maybe clear up two misunderstandings, because I think maybe I didn't express myself well enough the first time around?
"I broke [Caroline and Tyler] up because it was inevitable."
I'm really confused by this statement because nowhere in my review did I say that this was a problem I had with the fic. Because it's not a problem. I can totally buy a breakup between Caroline and Tyler. I could go either way with it given what I've seen in canon, and obviously it's up to the writer of the fic to decide where they want to take it. The problems I had with the fic had to do with the continued erasure and downplaying of Caroline's abuse at Damon's hands (and also the extent to which she's been manipulated by Stefan, but mainly it's the Damon thing) and what I felt was a lack of...sympathy and understanding of her POV and WHY she's been influenced to be so blindly loyal towards Stefan and Elena, especially. Not shipping.
"As far as not including Caroline on their plans to kill Damon and Stefan, though Caroline would have been sympathetic to killing Damon, I don’t think she would have gone along with it because of Stefan."
I can definitely see this point of view, though honestly my take on the character is that if she felt like anyone was on her side about Damon to the extent that she could talk about it honestly and openly, and if she felt like her friends wouldn't hate her for it, she'd be up for killing Damon.
But to get back to your point: I was fine with Caroline not being included in the plans (which is why I kept reading past the initial chapters.) Obviously there's nothing I'd love more than to have ALL the secondary characters band together against the Salvatores, but I was cool with this writing choice. But it was the complete neglect of her reaction to Damon dying - the lack of any sense in the MANY ways in which this would affect her - that finished me. I've had enough of that from the show, plain and simple.
I think ALL the secondary characters have, to greater or lesser extents, had to suppress, repress, and silence themselves and put themselves last to prop the three main characters. I know some people think Caroline is more blindly supporting of the mains than Bonnie - and I know others who see it the exact opposite way. They're BOTH written to be far more accommodating of the Salvatores than they should be, and honestly? I think it had more to do with stanning and character preferences than people maybe realize. In the case of both girls I see it as a tragedy for them because it's their way of adapting to their hellish environment and trying to cling desperately to the ties that they do have.
The same goes for whether or not Caroline is favored in the narrative. Is it better to get more screentime and be rigorously silenced, shamed, and degraded by having to apologize for hating your abuser? Or to get less screentime and at least tell the Salvatores outright that you don't owe them anything? I don't know.
Thanks again for responding!
