Hey you broke my heart
Beautiful Story! This brought me to tears
| stardust0402 chapter 20 . 6/19
Okay, so I mustbbegan somewhere, altough I still can't fight back my tears...
Someone on tumblr asked thecirclesquare about cophine fanfics and she suggested a dozen... but most of them I already read. However I was happy to find new ones and sincerely, I dont't have any idea how on Earth I tripped over this story only now! Like, where was I living till now?
I fell in love almost instantly with the story. It is simple perfection. The first 10 chapters it was easy to read, I dedicated an evening for it. But then came your warning and... I started to break into pieces. I struggled, you now to get past some chapters. Between cryings I managed to smile too because of these amazing characters you drew for us. It is unbelievable... I read many novels, but when it came the time to choose my favorite I just couldn't. I never felt the urge to read a story more than once. And now I telling you with the most sincerity that this became my nr 1. Even if it torn my heart into pieces and I have to collect them from the ground. I will happily carry this pain. So, I bow down, I truly, madly and deeply wish I could find this one story on a bookstore's shelf. The world doesn't know what it's missing.
I am big Cophine fan 'to the pluto and back' and it hurt me that in this alternative Delphine must die. But I understand. You wanted this story to seem real and in real life can't be controlled, fate can' t be controlled.
A huge thank you for the existence of this masterpiece. It gives hope, faith, and light.
Please continue writing. You are such a talent! Are you a writer in real life? Nicholas Sparks should beg for advice from you. :P
P.S. English is not my mother tongue. Sorry for the mistakes. Best wishes!

This story was beautifully written and brought me to tears, which is very hard to do. This, right here, is worthy of many awards. It was beautiful even though it was heartbreakingly sad.

This just tore a whole in my heart. I was warned but decided to read it at work anyway...you know, that awkward moment your coworker walks by, your eyes are glassed over, over fictional character, and no one around you understands your obsession...just another day for me. But seriously, SO BEAUTIFUL. And even though my heart is aching right now, definitely worth the read. I really loved this story, you did an AMAZING job!

HOLY CRAP. This is possibly the most beautiful fanfiction I have ever read. I think you're gifted with your magnificent writing. It's astonishing, powerful and truly heartbreaking. It's poetic. The beginning of Delphine/Cosima relationship was lovely. I could see Cosima definitely get along with kids like - Sera. The little girl was sweet - I totally loved her and my heart just melt when she called Cosima "Mom" and Delphine "Maman". I never realize I need this for REAL until I read your fic. Reading from Delphine POV totally made me loved her character even more. I had to thank you for RUINED my life haha. *tears*
The builded-up of their relationship was beautifully written. I loved them being a domestic couple and how they build family together. Not to mentioned that you wrote the love scene incredibly sweet and the whole golden gate scene was very romantic. I can't help but grinning like an idiot while i was reading this fic. The fluffy part was ultimately cute. I was crying while I was reading the part when Delphine asked Cosima to marry her - these science nerds. GOOD LORD. I DEMAND THIS TO HAPPEN FOR REAL IN THE CANON. The proposal scene broke me.
As you mentioned it earlier in the fanfic that I will have my heart torn our and stomped all over, I think you definitely right. Actually, I think you just RIPPED MY HEART OUT. I cried over this fic EVERY DAMN TIME I RE-READ IT AND I'M NOT REGRET.
One of the most powerful scene was the one when Cosima cutting her dread and Delphine immediately did too. I found it beautiful and heartwarming - like they did it for their daughter and that made them the cutest family EVER. I was happy to see Niko being a part of family GAH.
I wish this story ended in Chapter 19 HAHA HOW DARE YOU WROTE THE EPILOGUE. *cries for eternity* I appreciated your hard work for this fic. It's one of the best experiences so far. Pls do not stop writing Cophine fic. I swear to read every Cophine fic you wrote.

...call me crazy but your lack of capital letters wounds me to my soul. Why? Just why? I can understand making some spelling and grammar mistakes but removing all capital letters? Why!?

So I'm late to the party with this magnificent fic that you've crafted-I read it all over the past two days. And I have to say, you completely wrecked me, but in the absolute best way possible. Maybe it's because I'm a parent now or maybe because I feel I've married the love of my life, but this is quite possibly the first fanfic (in any fandom) that I really connected to on a visceral level. The way you described Delphine and Cosima's love for each other and their love for Sera and later Niko with your poetic writing... that's exactly how I feel about my own wife and sons. So going through their highs and lows and heartbreaks as they moved through the cycle of life... I'm just blown away.
I'm really surprised that this story doesn't have as many favorites and reviews as it deserves. If I could, I'd give it hundreds! Thank you so much for writing this. You're incredibly talented and I can't wait to check out your other stories.

you broke my heart. i've been crtying for an hour now, shaking and screaming and sobbing. this fanfiction was beyond anything. You took me away, filled me with the best and worse emotions. -all the the bset of ways-. I can't read anything for a while now bc i think i'm too sad and in greaving mode to just like that move on. thank you, for the good and the bad, you did an amazing job as a writer and as a Cophine fan.
| Crying chapter 20 . 8/28/2014
Okay, so I just finished reading this, and all up until chapter 12 i was like 'oh, this is such a cute happy story' and then the thing with the leukaemia happened and i swear i nearly flooded my house with tears! And then oh great, she's better, and oh! look at that, Cos and Del are married, isn't this wonderful?! Wow, they're adopting, could this get any better?
No! It couldn't get any better! Did i get this right? Correct me if I'm wrong, but did Delphine die? Bc i was crying to much, tears were blurring my vision, and I couldn't see the screen properly! I couldn't bring myself to read the last bit, my emotions were too high, and I think from now on I'm just going to take up permenant residence in the ballpit!
I absolutely loved your story, I got so drawn into it I couldn't stop reading, and I didn't (only to have my heart crushed at the end, but I'm gonna ignore that bit and pretend it never happened)
Sorry for such a long review, I couldn't help it. I'm gonna go cry over Delphine now, so one last thank you for writing this! xxxxx

I cried. So fudge you! :(
Well not in a bad way. Definitely not in a bad way.
But god. That epilogue. How could you?!
| Cophinaphile chapter 20 . 8/6/2014
This story is so unbelievably beautiful. Truly truly truly! I am in awe of the romance and commitment flowing out of Delphine... Once her internal conflict is resolved, it just flows like silk. Acknowledging of course that you broke my heart... It was worth every word!
