|Reviews for The Gravedigger's Daughter|
| Gilly Bean2 chapter 1 . 12/7/2008
Ah, I just stumbled across this story again and added it to my favorites. I'm not sure if you even check your reviews anymore, but I just want you to know that I think this story is beautiful. Avery is drowning in her grief, and I can understand drowning in negative emotions. I went through some...bad stuff, when I was little, and it took me years and years to get over it. Sometimes, it just seems so much easier to just let the emotions take over, to quit trying to push them away and let them swallow you whole. To me, Avery is very realistic and her struggles are all too familiar. This prologue literally pulls at my heart, because I can clearly picture Avery at her little brother's grave, unable to forgive herself for something beyond her control, and desperate for her parents to just *look* at her with something more than a blank stare or accusations.
One of the most powerful scenes in the story, to me, is when you have Avery read Harry Potter to Alex's grave stone. The image it creates is heartbreaking. Anyway, this story makes me thankful that all of my half-siblings are healthy and happy, even if they are hyperactive little imps that are at least 19 years younger than me. So. Once again, I adore this story, and would love to see how it will end up. Perhaps that is wishful thinking, though.

your writing is really really good, the quality and wording,
but... i dunno...
i'm getting pretty annoyed at your story. well, more like sobstory. it's like you processed every tragic stereotype you've ever read into recycled gunk and dumped it all onto the heroine.
though it's good enough to keep me reading. heh. well, it's not like it matters. i doubt you go on fictionpress anymore.

I've gotta say, I LOVE your stories & have been a fan for a long while. One question: do you ever intend on continuing your stuff, or are you on permanent hiatus? Just a curious inquire from a long-time reader!

All your writing is so wonderful. This must be really difficult to write, I think you've captured it beautifully, though I thankfully can't speak from personal experience. Touching and eloquent, but still real and not over the top.
Yeah, I gush, sorry! Hope to see this updated sometime, it's a really lovely piece of writing.

Brent and Tom are fucking. I have come to this conclusion last a while ago, and half way through this chapter I am 100% certain of it. So I had to scroll down and rant.
Tom, you dirty, dirty boy. Doing dirty things to Brent.
Oh God, bad images! D D D

This chapter makes me cry, no matter how many times I read it. Did this happen to you? I don't mean to be rude, but I think it must have, because it's so damned accurate. I miss my brother, too, you know? I love this chapter, I really do, but it still rubs me raw.
Thank you for capturing the pain and putting it to words, I really appreciate it.

Ahh. This last chapter was cute between Avery and Markus.
Ahaha. I love Avery's name.
You're an amazing author. This story put me into sobs. I absolutely love stories that can make me cry. I haven't read one in so long. It's kinda like an emotional outlet for me.
I can't help but notice that you haven't updated in two years. You're way past over due. You should definately grace us with another chapter. (:
