That was heartbreaking, I've always loved the idea of Alana bonding with Will's dogs, but of course with what happened at the end of season one it's asking for angst. You wrote it beautifully, and the parallels between the dog Charlie and Will's situation was devastating. Beverly's conversation with Alana made everything very real, not just vague poetic words, and the progression from Will's lack of response to the final scene was delivered very well.

Just dropped by to mention that, despite being a voracious reader of all kinds of novels for many years, I've never ever cried because of a book. Seriously. I mean I get depressed when characters die or suffer, but I've never openly wept because of a story.
And now a fic about a dog has reduced me to tears and I can't quite believe that a short piece is what did it. All I can say is woah. If your other stories will have the same impact, then you're on on you way to becoming my favorite writer on here. All I hope is that you'll one day you'll want to tackle a longer story (you know, over 30K words). Cause that would be really awesome.
Also, props for the story title. Love that song.

I've added all of your stories to my bookmarks. But this one hit the hardest and I'm openly weeping into my pillow. There is a little bit of snot, too.
I love that Alana fought so hard to keep both Charlie and Will alive. Their parallel circumstances made my heart heavy and having Will finally grieve and finally emote again was the best possible ending here. He's still pre-trial so there's no telling if the fight will do him any good but knowing that there's some hope was an incredible ending.
What a fantastic story. Your writing is fantastic and if by any chance you're a published author you should let me know so I can go devour your books.

I am crying so much right now and I have to go to work in a moment! Ahh! But this was so worth every second! I just can't get over how much your writing makes me FEEL.
Am loving Beverly and Alana's friendship as you write it and I've said it once and I'll say it many a time again, but they need to become friends on the show. Two of the most incredible women on TV and we're lucky enough to have them both on our show! :)
The backstory of Alana was done so well, it added such a great layer to the story as a whole. Losing Charlie would have absolutely broken her. And to see Will the way he was, not caring and giving up...just gah! I absolutely love this!
There is no logic to this review other than to gush and say how amazing you are and thank you for sharing this beautiful fic with us all! I hope to see so much more from you :)

Your story literally made me cry. Because I know what it's like to have to put a beloved pet down and you described it so well. And because the story was just really sad and well written. Who wouldn't give up in that tiny, creepy basement cell.

So, so good!
I deeply wish you'd continue the story of this universe, regarding the aspects of Will's case and it's evolution to whatever
