This story is so beautifully well written, definitely one of my fav... I came back to it every time I need a Quinntana fix! I wish you would have wrote about this pairing!

Just had to re-read this story and bathe in the words again. A beautiful love story that has always warmed my heart. Thank you again for writing and sharing this story.

I've read this story many times, but for some reason this time I "really" read it! Thank you, thank you for writing this, it truly wrote upon my heart the way the quotes wrote upon Santana and Quinns'. I hope you are still writing and inspiring!

This story is so well written. I wasn't sure how I'd feel when I first started reading it because I'm first and foremost a Brittana fan, however, this just blew me away! I don't know if I'll read any more Quinntana fics because, to be honest, I know they won't live up to this one. Just beautiful!

I love the way you write Quinntana - thank you for sharing!
| AirBud chapter 14 . 12/3/2014
This is such a beautiful story! I loved it. Normally I stick to Brittana stories but Quintanna are so interesting. You did an amazing job and my only complaint is I wanted to read more. I loved that you wrote about their fears and insecurities, yet you didn't ignore their hopes and dreams. Thank you for sharing this.

I believe I missed a chapter somehow because I have questions. Did Quinn quit Yale? Did she graduate from some school too? Did Santana end up leaving the bakery? I know a good story always leave you with a little bit of mystery but I just want to know if I missed these answers completely. Thanks.

omggg thank you so much for writing this! :) love the ending and how you brought a conclusion to the abuela situation and seeing Santana graduate from NYADA :)

This was just so touching and I got so attached to it, I couldn't stop reading it lol. Great story, I'm sad its over; however I enjoyed it nonetheless.

"but I was wearing bed shorts and a tank top and I was so embarrassed that couldn't go out, but you didn't know that and were really upset." Omg I'm cracking up so hard right now because you have the best dreams and best dream stories and this sounds like you! Hahahaha like I can even imagine your face! Hahaha
"While she had only been able to acquire one extra ticket, in addition to the two she was entitled to" I snorted so hard. You are such a teacher because this is sooooo fucking accurate. Hahaha trying to find the kid who doesn't have family so you can steal their ticket for graduation. I just love knowing the little details in all your fics.
So I remember when you first started writing this fic and I didn't know if I would be able to read it because well... It wasn't Brittana and the pain was still very raw. But then you wrote a wonderful and truly beautiful story of two young women growing up and growing into each other. There have been other Quinntana stories but I don't think they tackled canon and post canon with the same careful and skilled storytelling as you've done. Absolutely brilliant. Can't wait to read what you have next (whether it's fanfic or original) because it's all amazing. Thanks for sharing. It's been a great ride.

Wow. B. You went there. I mean I've really appreciated and loved the way you've written Santana and Brittany's relationship especially in the ways they grew out and moved on. But you took it to the next level with Santana's awful fear that she'll be on the receiving end of the Breakup speech. It's devastating and I'm blown away how you managed to weave together so many threads.
"They had hooked themselves inside Santana's chest, looping around her heart and tying themselves to it as though they should have been there all along. A silver threaded forget me knot." Word porn.
Ugh. This long distance stuff is killer and you just nailed it especially when it reaches the point when it's not enough. Period. Still half in this and reading these parts always hits me where tell myself it's fine that we only see each other every other weekend. Anyway, you've done this part so much justice.
"And, anyway, we've kind of done things a little backwards from the start, haven't we?" ACCURATE!
This whole chapter was just brilliant and crafted with such care and love. Fantastic job, B. I can't believe there's only one left!

Omg. Word porn. Just fucking word porn. B, can you not. But really, I'm already in love with this chapter and it's just beautiful prose overlapping imagery and memories from characters that I just want to reach out and touch. :DDD "Santana had been fascinated by hands which had saw dust ingrained in their creases and which were large and thick and unlike anything you would expect when hearing beautiful music dancing in the air." LIKE HOLY HELL MY MIND IS DANCING WITH THESE WORDS and the music that you are playing with the ebb and flow/ the length and word selection of these sentences. It's so playful and perfect. And Jesus! As much as you love words that take up space, that's how much I love them! "Her entire form fitting in the space between his finger tips..."
The way you just wrap that memory into Quinn and My heart just skipped so hard. a;sreeeeeeeeegldkj;iayh;oooooof NOPE omg the disjointed way you are juxtaposing the memory with the reality of the current situation is so heartbreaking and perfect that I'm not okay. "She had trouble distinguishing between things she had heard Quinn say aloud and things she was imagining; the version of Quinn insider her head louder than the girl standing before her." B, I have so many things I want to say because you are writing this as exposition and perception, but YOURE ALSO DOING THIS WITH THE PROSE! LIKE THIS IS FUCKING GENIUS! The melodic harmonies and lengthy sentences that roll like beautiful nostalgia and then the DROP into the current. I'm totally speaking incoherently but that's because you've got my mind buzzing with words and what you are doing with them!
And "In the moments before Quinn spoke again, Santana wondered how, in a moment, love could make her feel so small. A single note when, in memory, love was an entire song."
Welp. I don't know if I can keep reading because those first few paragraphs did more for me than most Brittana fics (or any fic or novel) do in their entirety. Wow. So rich with everything. I need to take a break because I can't finish this and admit that there's only an epilogue after this. Review Part 1 of (however long it takes me to finish these last 2 chapters before you kill me with all your word porn and prose)
