| Miss Savvy xoxo chapter 49 . 8/16
So I have been putting this off for as long as possible because it is hard to say goodbye to a story that I have followed for a while now. I can honestly say that no story has ever come alive in my head so fully and vibrantly than this one and that is a true testament of your superb writing. I love you and your writing -pretty heartbroken you gave Lydia cancer- but I still love ya! This was a beautiful end to a wonderful journey full of so much heart, humour, horror and character. I look forward to your next adventure. Thank you xoxoxoxo

So I finally found some time to finish reading this story, and I'm glad I did! I'm glad Stiles got some closure with his mom, and was able to get the ball going with Lydia's diagnosis and treatment. I'm glad Allison is recovering (if that's her?).
I kind of feel like this ending is open-ended. Like I'm not sure if you want us as readers to finish the story in our heads, or if your next story is a sequel to this story.
Option 1: Lydia recovers, and she and Stiles officially become a couple. Kate is actually possessing Allison hence all the weirdness since coming back. The pack somehow find a spell or magical medicine to kill Kate once and for all, and good old Allison comes back, and she and Isaac are happy together. The rest of the pack is also happy.
Option 2: if there's a sequel, I can't wait to read it!
Good luck on the next story! And it's good to have you back! :)

Like I get that it's over but it reeaalllyy seemed like kate was the one that came back in Allison's body. Like the fact that she didn't want to talk to anyone & all, i dunno. But dang what a good story

Honestly gutted that this is finished! It's been so enjoyable to read! I've really loved the group dynamic in the fic and I'm excited to see what you've got in store next!

Awwwwww, perfect ending... I really love this story. You did an awesome job and I van'g wait to know what else you have to us...

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S DONE. Wow, so so excellent like the entire story was brilliant and this ending was perfect. Like you tied up some loose ends while simultaneously leaving a few things ambiguous- it shows how great you are at writing, because in real life not everything is solved and concluded. I really liked the bit with Scott and his dad and Allison living, but also how her recovery is (accurately) very slow and how the event damaged her emotionally/physically/mentally. I really loved the shaving heads gesture for Lydia (did Derek do it too?) and I think it was good that Cora didn't do it because honestly her character on the show and in this fic doesn't seem like the type to do something like that (but we can also see that she does still care for Lydia). Well done on this fic, I'll see you in the comments section of your next one xxx

I am sad this is ending, but oh, what an ending. It was a very nice wrap up. No immediate 'happily ever after', but with plenty of hope and promise, my favorite kind of ending. It seems kind of weird to think of Lydia being inflicted with a natural (if cancer can be called natural) illness in the midst of all their supernatural stuff, but it's a good reminder that the natural world does exist, still, so very well done. I will definitely be waiting for the beginning of your next TW fic. I like the changes that have come over most of the pack, though it's sad about Allison struggling to recover. Very sentimental way to honor Lydia's struggle. I was wondering why Scott was uncharacteristically wearing a cap lol. That explains it. Will the next one you have planned be a sequel or independent from this? I know we talked about it a long time ago, but I've forgotten lol.
Hope you are enjoying the new season, and happy writing!

I...I can't even begin process the emotions I'm feeling right now. This was such a beautiful ending.
I just wanna thank you for giving us this amazing story, it's been one if my favorites that I've read, and will remain one no matter what I read. Your writIng is amazing, and I can't wait to read more of your work!

Ahhh the second last chapter! I AM NOT PREPARED! I AM NOT PREPARED!
| Halfcent chapter 48 . 7/23
Now this I didn't see coming. I was not prepared at all for the twist of Kate wanting Allison's body and that it would be as easy as killing her in her mindscape or dreamscape or whatever it is. I recall, now, wondering if you were going to kill Allison off (like Aiden) since she was killed in canon, but alas, cliffhanger lol. It's hard to imagine that everything with Lydia's cancer and whatever happens to Allison might be wrapped up in one last chapter, but if anyone can do it and make it look good, it would be you, so I can't wait to see how it ends.
I'm glad that Scott finally asked Isaac about whether he's coming back to the house, and I was happy to hear Isaac's answer (especially that he called it home). Isaac's character will always hold a dear place in my heart, even as the series is progressing without him. He is still in the top three as my favorite character and I adore the friendship between him and Scott. You do it justice, so thank you for that.
I will be waiting for you next update!

Okay, first of all - I'm so glad you are back! Not just for the story, but YOU, since you just never know what's going on with the friends you fleetingly meet through sites like this. I'm glad you're back and and I'm glad that you are apparently well :)
I won't like, though, I am also glad to see an update lol. In between the hoping that you are well, I also wondered if you'd decided to give it up, or were maybe severely blocked. I did see a few random notifications for The 100 (since I follow you as an author and not just this story), but I don't follow that fandom. It did let me know you were still out there and existing lol, but it has been a while since I'd last seen even one of those. So welcome back :D It's good to see you, good to see an update and good to know that you are already working on a fic to follow this one, yay.
On with the review:
I have sort of forgotten most of what was going on, but I'd anticipated that so I read the previous chapter again. Between that and this chapter, it filled in the blanks of things I'd forgotten. I had totally forgotten it was time for the ritual!
I recall now that I had a suspicion that Lydia was sick in some manner, though I think that was fairly obvious. HOW she was sick was the question. I really can't recall at this point what I predicted and what came as a surprise as far as this chapter is concerned, but I'm glad that Stiles remembered the message this time. And that he managed to come back easily.
I really loved the mother-son scene. It was sweet and touching. I think everyone in the world has at least one person they've lost that they would give anything to be able to see one more time, and I think this was written well to portray the situation.
I also enjoyed both Scott and Cora's conversation about why he feels more anxious this time than last time, and Lydia and Isaac's conversation. Those are the two that we never really got to see connect, Lydia and Isaac (in the show) and I think it went well ;) As for Scott, I know I've mentioned this numerous times in previous reviews and PMs (though I'm not sure you recall it) but I like the portrayal of Scott's growing sense of leadership. Sometimes it's the small nods that work well to portray it, at times, better than overt and obvious cues.
All in all, brava. And once again, welcome back.
On to the next chapter!
PS: I know I've reviewed and replied under both of my pen names, so just as a reminder (because I didn't realize I was on this one till just now and it is not the original that we met under) -
| CityOfLittleLiars chapter 48 . 7/21
I've binge read this fic in 2 days and I am completely and totally in love with it! Can't wait for the final chapter!
| gossgal33 chapter 48 . 7/20
NO ALLISON. Please don't kill Allison again, I actually could not handle it for a second time. Seriously though, I hate Kate so much, you have written her so well in this and I was really glad to see Allison managed to defeat her in the battle for Allison's body. Also the Scisaac interaction was so sweet with Scott like "please come home, my mom misses you and I miss you Isaac" and the bit with Isaac appreciating being missed was really great and accurate x thanks for updating so quickly :)
| lenail125 chapter 48 . 7/19
Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God! To much blood... I really hope Allison and Lydia will be okay. Please, let her be okay.
