I love that you set this story in a fairly novel backdrop. It's a brave move and it worked, thanks in no small part to the beautiful descriptions and wistful tone throughout the chapters.
Have you thought about getting this story onto the silver screen? Your depictions were breathtaking and I'd love to see your talent getting the recognition and reward it deserves.

I enjoyed this, thank you for sharing :)

I liked this story a lot. Most stories only either show the sunny or the dark side, but you did both, but more so dark than light. But I'm pretty curious as to what happened with Sylvain and Aiden. The ending was good, though.

This story is just beautiful. The ending is open that gave every reader chance to think of what really had happened to Aiden. This story deserve more reviews, since it's full of emotion that lead me to tears... Thanks for writing such amazing story. Hope to hear more from you soon.

It'a shame this story didn't get more reviews, really. I like the dreamy style a lot and the ending is wonderful :)

Interesting chapter. A quickie, but definitely a goodie.
| Leon Trotsky chapter 3 . 6/24/2009
One again another great chapter. Aiden and Terry's conversation at the end, as well as the paragraph that followed, that was my favorite part. It was just somehow touching, the fact that they are connected to their childhoods by the little string that is each other.
| Leon Trotsky chapter 2 . 6/24/2009
I really enjoyed this chapter. The last paragraph of it was especially stunning, with the way you conveyed so beautifully how acting to Aiden is the only bright thing about his life, just as the stage is the only lit area in the entire theater. It was beautiful.
The characters you've got have such life. Terry, Skeet and Mr. Weston, while all different and perhaps even unimportant to the overall story (I have no idea!) have a certain life to them that I loved.

Nice Prologue. It's really drawn me into the story and I just can't wait to read what comes next. You did a great job characterizing Aiden such that I have a good idea of who he is (or at least where he's starting).
My favorite line was "His favorite days were the chilled ones, where the wind blew up cool mists and fog shrank the world, so he could stand on the beach and see only a few feet of sand to three sides, and the gently lapping waves to the front, before the world faded into white. It seemed almost as if the places he had known all his life were gone, and he was in some bizarre new world with no idea how he’d arrived there." You put a certain beauty into it that I just can't get over, although the entire chapter was great.

"My Life in Pictures" touched me in every way imaginable. I never would've imagined that it was possible for a fiction posted on an internet forum to exert so much emotions. The story compelled me in such a way that at times I'd feel it was an injustice to not laugh or cry when a moment in the story called for it.
The main reason, I feel, for this strength of the story comes from the way that the words and grammar had blended the themes and images so perfectly together. They were crisp and did more than just describe a situation - they characterised it as well. Each scene was painted with simple yet clear language that disguised how each sentence and paragraph were so cleverly woven.
And although I usually shy away from slash stories that have endings other than a "happily ever after", I enjoyed the bittersweet moment which you left "My Life in Pictures" at. It was another example of the depth that the story compels its readers to feel and I thoroughly appreciated it.
On a final note, I was shocked and disappointed that "My Life in Pictures" received so few reviews! However, I noted that in a space of a mere 20 days, you've posted all 35 chapters of the story. I believe that's the reason why the story didn't attract as many reviews that it could've - it was updated too quickly, so by the time that all chapters have been posted, it fell unnoticed into the crowd of stories as newer ones gathered attention.
I sincerely hope that you'll continue to post more stories in the future. You obviously have an sincere knack for creative writing. It's rare to experience the kind of emotion that your words have evoked. It's beautiful and it's intruiging at the same time. Good luck with whatever you choose to do from here on and thank you for sharing your words and your talent with us readers.

Wow, when I began to read this story, I honestly had no idea that it would be this amazing. You could say I was hesitant because I always look at the number of reviews and the summary. However, I feel that this story has great characterization. I really didn't even care about the smut & etc. The plot got to me, and I think that's why this story stands out. I cried at the end too; it was very bittersweet. Very well written though. :]

ok so im not sure when youll see this, but this is the second time im reading this story.
the first time, i read it right after one particularly long story, and after reading my life in pictures, i read yet another slash fic. all in one day, might i add.
and days after that i ploughed through more and more slash- i forgot the name of this story, but i just couldnt forget the characters... i couldnt forget the beauty of the angst in this story at all...
plus, i think your language skills are wonderful, and your story feels... right. like complete, you know? like i dont really need a sequel to calm my nerves and let me know if aiden and sylvain are still together.
overall, gorgeous story, even better the second time round!

Very good, and very interesting so far. A small error:
"His parents, who had wanted a girl, or at least a child who’s first words weren’t so colorful, were never very pleased with him." I'm not positive, but I think it should be "whose" not "who's."
| Jen chapter 35 . 9/30/2008
wow that was so good, it makes me want to cry in a bitter-sweet way. Just your whole characterization and everything was so good, you're an amazing writer!
