Dylan can suck the dick that I don't have. And Tara girl move on, he isn't worth it at all. Talia can stay dead thank you.

when I read this it makes me think of the song "I Hate You, I Love You" by gnash

I agree with you. I didn't think that their relationship ass salvageable and I wsd hoping for Tara to reject him until I read the end. I instantly changed my mind and now the thought of Tara and Dylan not being together somewhat hurts. Needless to say I absolutely loved this story. (Even though it's a little too long to be a one-shot) hehe. Not that I'm complaining. And even though I would have loved a sequel, I agree that this is a great place to leave the story. And I wouldn't jave it any other way. I'm off to read Dylan's one-shot now.

I didn't review the first time I've read this because others expressed what I felt so much better than I could have done. After reading this again, it still evoked the same emotions and heartache that I felt back then. It is very well written that even though I know what happened, it still makes cry.
I still believe Tara deserves better but at the same time who is better than the person you've loved all your life? I know you've stated that you won't make a sequel but I hope you do. I want to read how they are when they're older...I just really want Tara to be truly happy and secured because she deserves it.

This was so sad and horrible and yet wonderful and beautliful at the same time. You're amazing.

Hi! It's me again.
I just wanted to let you know that I go back to this oneshot like, all the freaking time. Seriously. I don't know what it is exactly about this that got me hooked but it just calls me, every now and then, and I'd always reread the same parts (as in the same, exact parts I always reread cause this thing is LONG) (not that I'm complaining though, I love long pieces) over and over again until I've got tears running down my face and I'm sniffling in my covers. I swear to God, I am not kidding.
So please WRITE SOME MORE! I know the possibility of you writing a sequel for this is like, um, negative, but PLEASE if you ever run out of ideas (which is highly unlikely to happen considering all the masterpieces you've crafted), I BEG you to write a sequel. PLEASE.

I've been thinking about how you could publish this without it getting lost among the short stories on Amazon. Your best bet would be to put it into a book with your other one-shots and publish it that way. Books tend to sell a lot better than short stories. You've got enough of them for a sizable book. I'm meaning to get to reading more of them, but I keep getting sucked in by this one again. I've already read it three times, and it still has the same effect on me as it did the first time. If you do publish it, I'd recommend that you categorize it as contemporary romance instead of listing it in the short story anthologies. Contemporary romance is more popular.
By the way, I agree with you about the sequel. Much of the power of this story comes from the angst. Although it has sort of a happy ending, taking that angst away completely might not be as memorable.
| Shadowswept chapter 1 . 9/7/2015
I love angst when it's done right, and this is perfect. Some of the stories I favorite I never read again, but I'm back to this one only one day later. I'm marveling at how you managed to make their connection so strong and so raw and deep. I'm going to keep reading this and studying your technique, but I doubt I'll ever be able to replicate it.
I'm glad you didn't break them up for good. They went through so much heartache and pain, and they are the only ones who can understand what the other is going through. Also, they had the foundation of childhood friendship to carry them past it. They cared about each other before everything else happened.

Oh god, do you know how much this made me cry? A lot! I love this story! This the first time that a story actually made me bawl my eyes out! Wow really great, can't wait to read the next chapter. Which I am going to do right now. 3

I love this. It was amazing, and thank you.
| truh chapter 1 . 6/27/2015
ughhhhhhhhhh. I can't help but hate and love this. First of all, I love the (your) style of writing so much and how the way the story unfolded! I admit that I've been trying to avoid this story because I knew it was going to be a bumpy ride but damn it was good. Everything is so vivid and beautifully crafted. By the end of the story, I was so filled with emotions ranging from sadness to anger that my roommate literally panicked. hahaha xD
Second, I hate you for not breaking them apart. However, because I'm also a romantic at heart I can't help but love you for bringing them together. I loved you so much when you finally broke them apart and gave her a breath of 'fresh air,' because she really needed it with the way her life is broken. But, when they reconcile I felt a bitter taste because realistically the air between them is already tainted so bad that I can't buy into the idea that they will be able to heal each other at all.
Anyways, great story. Thank you so much with sharing! I still feel that Tara deserved, no need, to be with someone better. Maybe with given time down the road it will get better but I just can't buy into it yet. Sorry for the rant haha. This is my first review and I'm so filled with emotions its crazy.

My word, I type this with my heart in pieces and my eyes swollen and puffy.
This one-shot just trampled all over my feelings and now I don't think I quite know what to do.
The relationship between Tara and Dylan was so emotional and, although I wasn't sure whether in wanted them to end up together, I sincerely wanted both of them to find happiness.
This is an incredible story.

This was just asdfugihjodspajfhgs. Honestly, I'm in awe. It was so beautiful and realistic, and the characters were so broken and flawed, but yet so believable and loveable. Your writing is just amazing, you describe everything perfectly and give the reader everything they need to picture it all exactly how you are as you're writing it.
I think this is going to go down as one of my favourites, which I'll hopefully have the pleasure of reading again sometime soon. Thank you for sharing this with us, I loved it!

Is it bad that I really didn't want Dylan and Tara to be together? Or maybe not bad but...cruel? Because I know she loved him and would probably always love him but I think Dylan's feelings would always be questioned, by both her and everyone else (not that anyone else matters but). I really wanted her to move on with her life without him and show that she's strong enough to continue living with all the pain and love and regret. And I really, REALLY wanted her to meet another guy who would always put her first and help her get over Dylan and Talia.
But anyway. This was so heart-wrenching and I loved it (though Tara and Dylan are REALLY bad at controlling themselves, I gotta say).
