I've been waiting so long for this story to be complete. Your summary immediately dragged me in. I knew I was going to cry when I read this, but I didn't know it was going to be this much. I sobbed; I became angry. All of these emotions this story made me feel...it was beautiful. You added comedy at the right times, slowed things down at the right places, and the sorrow, grief, devestationg was exactyl where they belong. It's clearly evident that your writing has improved from when you first started this story. When you go back to edit this, add more detail; while it was well written and expressive, add more personality with detailed imagery, metaphors, and the like. You had me spend my whole day on this story. It is currently ten o'clock right now, I have class as 7 in the morning, and have boat loads of homework to do. However, I don't regret reading this story one bit. Thank you so much for this.

"He was going to live, and I was going to die—but really, living and dying is the same thing anyways, isn't it? The act of living is the act of dying."
What does this mean? It's been going over and over in my mind, but I just don't get it

God this chapter made me cry. her entry was just so sad and beautiful at the same time. Ur next story should be Jonah's story, that would be amazing.

Aw, gosh, you had me in tears. This chapter was hilarious, a much needed comic relief. Haha, I laughed so loud, everyone was looking at me weird. Thanks for making me look like an idiot, laughing at the computer with typed words splayed across the page.

Oh stars Kayla...you have accomplished the impossible.
You made me literally cry by reading a story.
I have never, ever, ever done that for a piece of fiction but I seriously feel like sobbing. Absolutely beautiful. I can't even begin to comprehend this, and the part with Bernie...that's what got me. It was just so perfectly sad and yet so incredibly beautiful. Like seriously this is incredible. I'm stunned. You're just...wow, I just don't even know what to say. I'm amazed, and so touched by this. Like, I'm hard to move with fiction, as you well know, but this is just so...real and beautiful. I keep saying that, but beautiful is really the only way to describe this.
Thank you thank you thank you.
You are an incredible author and an incredible person.

That was amazing. I almost cried, and i would've if i hadn't been in class at the time. :)
This story is great, a nice plot line, good characterization, and one of the best endings I've read/ Edit, then publish. Please? )
| SoDivine chapter 36 . 3/30/2011
Let me just congratulate you...this story was beautiful in every way.
It's absolutely perfect in my message you delivered was absolutely breath-taking.
I can relate to this very well, given the fact that I've lost someone dear to me too and in the same way as Jonah felt he learned so much about Becks.. I learned from this person too.
You should try to publish this because let me tell you, this is worth publishing...
Thank you for sharing it with us people at FP. :)

i can't believe it's over. for the longest time, i hoped (god, i hoped so much) that there's be some magical cure or some sort of loop hole that would save Becka. i liked how you ended it with Jonah's pov for the dedication, it wraps everything up nicely. these last few chapters have been hard for me, trying to keep the tears at bay. throughout the whole story, you got all the emotions perfect and really appealed to the reader. congrats on finally finishing. did you ever think of writing a story in Jonah's pov now that Becka's gone?
| AmandaHold chapter 33 . 3/30/2011
okay, so i really should be studying for an exam i have in like 4 hours but i was so happy to see your updates in my inbox. i just wanted to let you know, i loved this chapter. i loved how they all came together to make her birthday special but also to let her see her sister getting married, and vice versa so Vanessa could have her involved in the celebration.

Gunna gove a quick apology first because I'm crying so hitting the keyboard with intentions that this comes out readable! That was so sad. But in a way, I, kind of like Jonah, finally accepted that she had to die. And it was such a beautiful ending.
I've loved this story so much, and I think I always will, but to be honest, I don't think I'll ever be able to read it again without breaking down in tears P Thank you for an amazing story (and I hope the fictional Jonah will be able to get on with his life happily in the future!)
| lena-lou chapter 36 . 3/30/2011
There's so much depth in this. It's amazing. A pleasure to read. So thanks.
| butts chapter 36 . 3/30/2011
wow... I read this story almost religiously, hoping that Becks would somehow be cured but knowing that it wouldn't make it much of a story if she did... and all I can really say is thank you.
Five years ago, my grandmother died from cancer. She lived a fantastic life, she had two children, she travelled the world, she had seven grandchildren who loved her. When she got sick, my family fell apart... we stopped talking properly, my mother and my uncle stopped talking, everyone fought and was tense, and it was so hard. When she passed away, no one was talking, no one was there for one another. We all felt guilty for tearing up the family, for stressing her out while she was so unwell, for making everyone else hurt more than they needed to.
Since then, I bullied my mother into talking to my uncle again, and we have some of her diaries... and now I understand a lot better.
In many ways, this story has helped to give me closure. It's fiction, it's not like you know what it feels like to die, to accept that you can't get better and let go, but reading it has made it a little easier for me to cope with it.
I had no one to talk to, my family was broken. no one wanted to help each other. The woman who'd held us together also tore us apart, indirectly. I've been struggling to come to terms with her absence in my life for five long years... and now I'm okay. not okay, but I feel like I can accept it better. you made death sound bearable, and made me feel okay for accepting it.
Thanks, again. You should try to get this published, because it really is such a moving story.
Love me xx

Aw. This made me smile. After all that crying...:] I will never stop loving Jonah. I have to say, his has got to be one of my favorite male characters, out of everything I've read. Yupp.
Part of me doesnt want him to move on, because Becka was so perfect for him...But I want him to be happy. Rawr.
So yea. Awesome. I cant tell you enough how much I love this. It has to be one of my all time favorites. Wow. And now its over. WOWOW.
| bridgettblah chapter 35 . 3/30/2011
OH god. Oh god oh god oh god. It took me five minutes before I could actually write this after finishing. Wow...Well, if/when you publish this, She'll have gotten a book publish :D But im still sad. D: Really, really sad. ugh. But, amazing. Wow. Fantastic. You need to share this story with the world, and not just online, the whhoole world. You have to get it published. I will make you. God. I cant believe its over. She's gone. She's really gone. I dont want to believe it, but I do. And I dont wanna say it, but I will: It wouldn't have been as good of a story if magically she lived. But, of course, that's the point. WOW. Well, just wanna say, this story absolutely blows me away, and I will always cry when I read it. I know I will.
