An absolutely wondrous read, i've been eating my way through this piece since yesterday and it was truly so warm to see the bond you displayed between Ed and Roy here. Beautiful and fun writing and witty dialogue when needed amongst the well handled harder moments of trauma and struggle, great work.

Wow, this was amazing! I've been reading this fanfic, unable to stop! I've even been thinking about it while I wasnt reading it! This was a great story - so incredibly emotional and well written! Seeing how the characters grew, their setbacks and their care for each other was just amazing. And this entire story was so realistic to me - Ed's recovery was slow and eventual and I just loved that. And that last chapter, I just kept grinning! I love how the blanket was that bright red of his coat and that he can see and I just absolutely loved this! What a fantastic story and ending - I absolutely loved reading this! Side note: with your A/Ns about jiu jitsu, I really want to do martial arts now!

I read this story over the course of a week and even though I don’t usually like overly-angsty fics, your writing somehow kept me going. You brought me to tears. And even though there were times I wanted to quit (because we were 27 chapters in and Edward was still just as messed up as he was in the beginning), I kept going. Overall I think the experience was good. And I would have liked for more of the chapters to be happy (rather than the just the epilogue), but Ed’s recovery made me feel better. If I have some criticism of this fanfiction, I think it could have dwelled a little less on the angst, because some of it seemed repetitive. And I would’ve liked to see more of Ed’s recovery and his life after gaining his sight back. But overall a good fanfic. Thanks for writing.

Once a year or so, I come back and read this fic. It’s like an old friend, honestly— one of the most beautifully written pieces I’ve ever had the honor of reading. Your skill at crafting incredible dialogue and emotional complexity in characters is breathtaking, and it makes me cry every time as if it were the first back when I was a teenager. It inspires me to write again whenever I reread it. Thank you so much for sharing this art with the world, because it’s made my life significantly better for it.

BEAUTIFUL. WONDERFUL. FLAWLESS. Creative excellence.
This chapter reminds me of that one vine where the kid is like “daddy?” And the girl is like “do I LOOK like-“ Except it’s the Elrics and Roy and Roy is, apparently, their dad. TvT Delightful.
Painful and heartbreaking, but also heart mending.

Look, I hate envy for what he did to Hughes, he’s besides that, I really liked him. I’m actually kind of happy Envy has Ed, bc that will give him a chance at normalcy. Maybe envy will help.
