AvaWillow chapter 7 . 7/3/2022
I still love this story even all this time later! I think it's even better knowing how it ends. Although, some of the details had gotten fuzzy like I had forgotten about Misha's brothers and Kaspar. Watching these two idiots dance around each other...I almost wish they would have just gotten over themselves...but then the story would have been completely different.

I did notice your edits of some of the earlier chapters. They read really well. You had mentioned reading through the story and finding some mistakes. I've recently started using the "read aloud" feature in MS Word (it's my go-to word processor). It's been pretty handy to find some mistakes. Of course it sounds really funny to have my words read in that monotone computer voice lol

I'm excited to read more! But my mini just informed me that I need to go to sleep.

This story is officially ruined for me. Abuse exists in the real world and that's why some people turn to fanfiction to see better stories.. to not think of all the crap. And I, personally am sick of reading about rape and psychotic bastards who abuse people they 'love'. So yeah. And I thought Misha was a jerk. I don't like his turn of events

The Chris guy is making it hard to read this.

Guest chapter 17 . 7/20/2013
Too many sex scenes with Chris. And he's not even the MC! I can't enjoy them really. Chris is fishy and suspicious. I don't like him and I'm a bit sick of Joni having sex with him on every page.

What can I say? What can I say?... I just loved this!
Soo many ups and downs and conflicted/mixed feelings about certain characters. Especially Joni - my feelings about him ranged from annoying, likeable, frustrating, pitiable, pissed, sad, endearing, and overall just loveable. He's just someone you can't get enough of. It was amazing to see how his character grew and developed (even if it was partly b/c of Chris). And how He matured a lot towards the end.

I especially liked how his recovery process seemed so real. It wasn't like he instantly got over Chris, for some time he was conflicted and confused, which is to be expected. Even his mood swings seemed bizarrely real b/c that was his way of coping with the situation. He was sngry, in denial, deppressed, and all his emotions seemed so well REAL.

I have to admit, during the time he was silent about the abuse, I was really pissed (but I still understood it a bit). Like Misha mentioned before, at times I don't understand why the abuse victims stay w/ their partners, hoping it will get better... B/c It hardly ever does get better, only worse. But with Joni, I sort of understood why he stayed (ie. the pictures, blackmail, constant verbal and physical abuse, reminiscing about the past and how Chris 'used' to be etc.).. But the constant 'what ifs' plagued my mind while I read thru those angst filled chapters. It was heartbreaking that he had to go through so much that it basically caused him to change completely. It felt unfair, and I knew there would be a climax where all the "drama" happened, but I still didn't want Joni to go through all that and deal w/ the aftermath... But you wrote it so well, and so many issues were raised from the get go, so impressive!

I also had conflicting feelings towards Chris. I did not expect him to turn all psycho when he was first introduced. Lol especially back when I thought their intimate scenes were hot and that Joni might fall for him and get over Misha... And then it turns out Chris is obsessively jealous and crazy with anger issues! (But honestly I sort of liked him as an antagonist lol).. I kinda got the vibe he was bipolar esp since he would apologize after beating Joni (I mean who does that?!) he was seriously twisted, possibly a pathological liar too? I kept catching myself, thinking like Joni though, that Chris needs serious help.

And I didn't want Adam to abandon him either. But at the same time maybe it wasn't wise for him to stay as Chris' friend since that link always remains? It's crazy but its soo difficult to move forward from a relationship like this when the psycho partner has a link to your family and future. But You seriously portrayed all of this so well. I especially liked Joni's later therapy sessions. I thought Pauliina hit the nail on the head when analyzing Chris. But then again he's far from an open book.

I also loved IVO! Lol and I'm glad he got with Jami, so cute. Dima and Linda are awesome too. But Dima better not get involved with Eva again. Is it weird that I wanted to see more of Kasper? Haha owell I started the sequel and got my wish.

I'm also glad this story ended this way. Misha and Joni's relationship has progressed so much, and reading it has been such a pleasure. I want them to experience so much more together.

Anyways ill end my crazy rant but this story just impacted me so much! There's so much to say, but I can't properly convey myself.. I'm just glad your continuing with a sequel b/c this is sooo worth it!
My gosh keep up the good work, you're an awesome writer! :-D
MooMoo chapter 54 . 9/21/2012
You don't know how much I love this story! I killed my eyes trying to read this whole story as much as possible. A couple times I was up till like 3:00am because I didn't want to stop reading lol!

The whole thing was very well written and very interesting. I constantly wanted to know what was going to happen next.

Where the hell is the sequel you said you were making? Haha.
Monica chapter 54 . 9/6/2012
In the time it took me to read all 54 chapters of this story you have made me laugh, cry, yell at my phone, ignore text messages and calls, lose sleep, worry about fictional characters, and absolutly fall in love with this story. You are a fantastic writer and I coul only ever hope to be half as good as you, I couldn't stop reading for a second:) I LOVED THIS STORY!
ElGal chapter 54 . 8/5/2012
This story. Just, wow. It was *so* good! I can't believe you had the patience to write such a huge and long story while keeping the standard so good and not just skipping to the important bits. This had me in stitches laughing and in tears sobbing and biting my nails with anxiety, but it was so so amazing. Well done to you and thank you for writing it! Brilliant work. x

Okay, so I have to leave a review, if only to show that I read this enormous thing (it must come out to over 1000 pages).
I really liked Joni and Misha. They aren't the most complex, sophisticated characters I've read, but they have heart, I can see you really invested something in them.
I have many issues with this story... I'm not a hater, but I really feel like you could have made the same impact, or even a bigger one, in less space. When you draw out a story for so long, with so little going on, it becomes less lively and engaging. So the first part of the story, up until Chris starts to abuse Joni, is maybe one third of the whole in terms of words, but more like half or more than that in terms of what happens.
And also after this point, the outside world seems to drop away; there doesn't seem to be any world outside of the homes of the characters. It would be a more powerful story with a more solid sense of the world, I think.
Partly I think of the world, because you give us such an interesting portrait of Finnish society. It's amazing how many writers on FP will be afraid to write about where they live, and set all their stories in America... so I'm glad you didn't. I found it really interesting.
So I hope you keep working on your stories. I really think you have talent.
