If I could give you 50,000 stars I would!  This story has been amazing from the first word read...I have experienced every emotion along the way...a few hitting closely to home.  

Thanks!

This story touched me on two levels.

My mother passed away in February 2008, just 2 hours before my girlfriend and I boarded a plane for a hastily booked visit because we knew her health was failing. A few months later I entered a period of near-suicidal depression, spending months in therapy and two years on anti-depressants, and terrifying my girlfriend, who had no idea I was even suicidal until I began treatment. I was so low, and so scared I would do something irrevocable, I gave all my guns to a friend for safekeeping for over a year. All this despite the fact my mother had been in failing health for over a decade and had suffered a severe stroke 5 years before her death and had time to prepare for her passing.

In March 2011 my best friend David, whom I'd known since he was only 17 and I was 21, shot himself in his parents' home. He would have been 48 two weeks after his death.

When you lose a parent or child or spouse, people understand your grief and that dealing with it will take time. But when it's "only" a best friend, friends and coworkers nod sympathetically and expect you to just move on in a couple weeks. But David was my brother in all but blood, and never a day passes when I don't think of him. There is a hole in my heart that can never be filled. For a long time I was angry at my other friends; I deeply resented the fact none of them stepped in to fill David's shoes. It took me a long time to realize none of them possibly could have and let go of that anger. Nobody has ever been as close to me as David was, not even my own family or girlfriend of 32 years. I will never have another friend like that. I can't even visit his grave to mourn, because he was in the Navy and his parents buried his ashes at sea.

I will end this by repeating the last words I spoke at his memorial service:

David, I love you and I will miss you always.

Beautiful ending. I would say I had some triggers in there, but it was a good cry for me. I love those two, and am so glad they made it. You are so talented. Keep writing girl. It was a fantastic story.

Reviewer: windyday (Signed) · Date: July 03, 2012 03:46 PM · On: Epilogue

I have not even read this final chapter yet, but your first AN at the top of the story grabbed me. Yes, I do have/had family members with bipolar, and other mental illness. We always get and got along. Who knows, maybe I'm bipolar!! My Mother suffered from Panic attacks, and it turned in to another illness, where she refused to leave the house unless she was drunk, and/or with my dad.  I think it's called agrophobia? I'm not sure. She smoked herself to death even with stage three cancer. My dad died from alcoholism 6 years later. They were so down for each other, I just think my Dad gave up.  I won't mention my siblings here. But at the end of this long assed sentance, I want to thank you for writing this. It really opened my eyes in a few areas.   Keep writing, don't ignore fanfic, we are all looking for writers like you.

I have not even read this chapter yet. I just don't understand an authors need to tell their readers that there are x many chapters left. If we love the story (which, I love this one), then why, why, why pop my balloon and say I've got 4 or 3 more chapters. It's like ice water when I'm sunning on Mission Beach.   I'm not trying to be mean or disrespectful, but it really sucks.

Reviewer: windyday (Signed) · Date: July 02, 2012 06:50 PM · On: Chapter 34

I'm loving how things are looking up for B&E, and I'm grateful that Charlie was able to let go of his baby girl, "just a little bit".  I loved the Christmas presents too.

Reviewer: windyday (Signed) · Date: July 02, 2012 04:27 PM · On: Chapter 34

i have not even read beyond the first paragraph of this chapter and I am already mad at Edward. He was planning on distancing himself from Bella? WTF? HOW could he after everything. I need to finish this chapter. Sorry.

Reviewer: windyday (Signed) · Date: July 02, 2012 09:46 AM · On: Chapter 29

I want to punch Jacob in the nuts, I want to strangle Edward, and i want to marry Ronen.  Thats just right now. I want to see Edward win his fight. And Bella.

Great ending. 

Reviewer: Shonla (Signed) · Date: March 20, 2012 02:12 PM · On: FFMI: What Happens In Vegas... Pt2

Great chapter

Reviewer: JacksonRobKellan (Signed) · Date: March 13, 2012 09:06 AM · On: FFMI: What Happens In Vegas... Pt3

Music! I forgot to comment on the music. All of it was amazing. I saw that we shared the same taste and I found new people. It was great.

I feel slow. I've been pronouncing Eyeore wrong this whole time. It wasn't until Alice said "Tigger" that I realized how to pronounce it! Gah! It was horrible.

"The things we do for women." "Ain't that the fuckin' truth. Cheers." "What the fuck? Cullen, am I seeing shit? Em'll kick my ass..." Those are my favorite lines of this chapter. They were great. Ro and Edward are hilarious.

Reviewer: JacksonRobKellan (Signed) · Date: March 13, 2012 08:13 AM · On: Epilogue

This story was so good. The way you ended it was perfect. I think any other way would have... Too much, for lack of a better word, for Edward and Bella. The ending was simple; beautiful.

I cried reading Alice's chapter. My heart went out to everyone for their struggles. I think what makes an excellent author is when their readers can feel the emotions of their characters. You're an amazing writer and you made me do that.

 

So, what I'm trying to say is: I loved your story and I can't wait to read more of your work.

--Anabeth.

You mentioned Emilie!! Hehe, I love her and I thought it was cool when I found out that little tid bit.

 

Great story!

Thank you for this wonderful story.  It's been a long hard road and it was hard to even read sometimes so I can't imagine going through anything like that myself.  You must be made of strength.  Good for you.  But thank you for taking us all on this lovely ride.  Carole

Oh how I've missed all of them. I hate to see this end but it ended on such a high note. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. This story at times almost did me in, my heart shattered for them when they were at rock bottom, and swelled with love when they found their silver lining. BTW when Edward hugged Carlisle I was a blubbering mess. I will have to look you up on twitter I'm obviously Robfan06 over there. Don't want to miss anything. xoxo
