This story was favorited by a friend and I decided to take a peek. I want to say, as a fully realized MtF transsexual myself as well as a 'real' doctor and not just a penname, this was awesome. It really did manage to distill the complexities that surround our existence, not to mention the challenges we present to those around us. There are far too many Brianna's, and too many Erin's and James', out there and it never seems to get any easier. I'm so glad how you managed to avoid judging James. It was truly authentic as far as I'm concerned. I've seen so many families stretched by T and the ones who get through are the ones who don't judge. Bummer this one, in fiction at least, didn't get through.
Thank you again for sharing!

Oh my goodness! I was on the verge of tears after reading this. It is so sad and so beautiful. It seems impossible that something like this could ever be written, but you were amazing at it. The way you broached the unmentionable topic of transsexuals... Brianna was such a beautiful person. And I am thankful that she had Danny and Erin.
The ending is so bittersweet, having Brianna die, but also having the family start to accept each other, spend time with each other. Once again, it is SO tragic but beautiful. Thank you for writing this story, so much!

Truly heartbreaking, but wonderfully told.

I just loved this story.
It touched a cord inside and my whole body resonated to it.
It was an interesting way of introducing the events and it worked really well.
Not knowing huh, all the questions without an answer.

This story was written beautifully. As I read it, I felt like it had actually happened, that it wasn't a story. Please keep writing, you're amazing! 3

Okay, at first I didn't quite approve of the whole transgender thing, but now that I'v read this, I'm kind of warming up to the idea. This story brought me to tears ;w; I love Brianna! This is actually the first story I've read from you, and wow, I was amazed/still am. I love the imagery, analogies, and emphasis that you used. This story is amazing and thank you so much for writing it :D

I love this story-I hope dearly that it gets published. If it does I'll be one of the first to buy it!

I've passed by this story several times, seeing it on people's favorites list, but it really never grabbed me. Finally decided to read it today, and I think it's amazing. Very well written, and very emotional, it's sad things like this happen in our world far too often.

I had goosebumps reading this story. It was beautifully written and the many emotions went across quite well.

This is truly a beautiful story. It's short, but the issues it covers, the believable way you shaped the characters, the camera being a way to separate Erin from reality. It has to be one of the greatest and most likable stories I've ever read.
Erin, Bri, and James were great teenagers, and represent what most people would call the 'problems with the American youth' but all I can feel is love for them. And I think that's what you were planing.
