I review such a small percentage of stories I read but yours was one I felt compelled to leave my thoughts on. Nearly no stories with this level of trauma are done well, show the damage and effects that extrodinarily traumatic experiences have when they are ongoing. Most authors seem to overdo it or under do it. Few people seem to understand that long term trauma, like those of sexually abused kids like I was very often manifests differently then those of a one time sexual assault as the mind sadly learns to protect itself and the damage done is usually more subtle in some ways and more horrible in others. Almost every author I've read on this site treats every sexual assault or abuse in one of two ways, the victim is fine once she has been saved as if nothing ever happened or the victim becomes a basket case who can't be touched by anyone, in any way with little progress when it's a whole spectrum of after effects. I felt like you handled this better then 99% of what I've ever read and I want to thank you as a survivor of long term sexual abuse and rape to the levels that the only stories I've ever seen that shared some of what I survived were attacked by nearly every reader for being the most vile and sick things they have ever read instead of acknowledging that there are some like me who have survived such vile and sick things and while damaged, sometimes badly have still survived and found some peace. I know I've only known a handful of people who survived similar experiences and none of us have found peace, but we have all found a piece of it. I believe that in your story Bella would have been a similar case if it were not for the change affecting human memories so powerfully and had her relationship been non-supernatural. I found my most healing was done by my now husband of 14 years but the way a mate is described is beyond love. Regardless, the way you handled her dissociation, depression, her self confidence being shattered, her thoughts, emotions and her physical responses along with her fighting against her attackers and at times, even her compliance to survive earned a true thank you from me. I look forward to reading more of your work.

I absolutely love all of your stories. Everytime I read one it's almost as if I'm there or watching a show. I just wanted to let you know, that I absolutely LOVE and appreciate your writing. With the added bonus of being a Whitlock fan myself. Thank you for writing these, whether it was for others enjoyment or your own, I find myself happy with the results of your creativity.

And this is wat i mean that bish does not have the right to be mad it was her choices that got her raped not the wolfs...

Ha so they did warn her and she still went ...
I had read this story before this is my second time lol i see now that she has no reason to be mad at the wolfs when she becomes a vampire for not helping her when eddie was raping her thats her own fault for nit listing and befriending the vampires ...
