Everything you write is so amazing and rich in sensory detail and something- I don't know what. I didn't want to actually read this story but I was curious and took a peek. And I got caught by the narrative, damn it!

I got all encouraged in chapter 6, and then it all came crashing down again in chapter 12 :-(
Thank you for writing this and sharing it. I really enjoyed it despite the sorrow. I can see from other reviews that you probably planned more of the story, but I know by now you're gone from here. This isn't a bad place to end it - I've already dealt with someone else's terminal illness fic today, and it didn't grieve me too much not to have to read any actual death scenes in this one. The real impact from this story comes from the revelations about who is sick. This feels like it could be a natural place to end it. Thank you again.

This is a beautiful story. I really wish you would finish it. I read that you had been harassed in the K/S arena. I would ask that you ignore all the ass-hats. You are a fantastic writer. I fell in love with you when I read a K/Mc and a S/Mc of yours on ff.net. I did not even know you wrote K/S! I was so irritated when I read your author's note. People who do not have something nice to say should stfu and move on but they seldom do...the need to make themselves seen and inflate their lack of self esteem by bringing down others. Don't buy into the bs. You are a talented writer and anyone who does not agree shoukd go play elsewhere.
It wasn't a skill issue. I was harassed for the fact I made no secret of being a multishipper, and not liking the amount of Uhura-bashing that goes on in this site. Apparently if you don't warp canon and exclude all other ships ever, you aren't good enough. *shrugs* So I quit. I'd like to say I'd be back but: a) in general, I'm moving slowly away from fandom period. The love is gone, and if I pick up fanfic again, it's likely to be a different fandom; and b) my mother was diagnosed a couple of days ago with terminal cancer. This fic would probably chew up and spit out what's left of my decorum if I so much as peeked at it for the next year :-/
Thank you for the comments and support, however! It's nice to know the fandom hasn't completely dissolved.

As much as this story makes me unbearably sad, I do adore it. I normally shy away from things too relatable to real life, because it can be painful. This is sad, true. But the emotions are real. You're a very skilled writer, and, as much as it pains me to *read* Spock dying, I can't wait to see another update. =]

Just had to, didn't you....
See, I twigged to this many chapters ago... you were being too coy about Spock, o evil one. I stopped reading this and then just happened across it this morning and was tempted to read the last chapter. I can resist anything but temptation, and it serves me right.

I actually did not see that coming and usually I always see something like that before it happens. It feels like a kick in the gut. Shows how good a writer you are.
I am going to keep reading this story but I just know it is going to break my heart into tiny pieces.

Uh-oh, that rasping in Spock's lungs does not augur well, imho. I have the terrible suspicion, that my greatest fear concerning this fic will come true. You want to kill off Spock?? Oh my, a tiny part in my mind - called hope - still whispers, maybe it's only a red herring after all .... Anyway, well written as always and you keep me on the edge of my seat!

Spock? You're going to kill off Spock? Why, what'd he ever do to you?? and how is he going to "rage, rage?" Although, he is doing a good job of "being gay".
Sigh. This is marvellous. I'm hooked on this story. It's something about Jim's POV that has grabbed me, I don't know what. Great work!
Chapters thirteen and fourteen reveal all. But. Considering the quoted poem is an outsider demanding someone to rage against the dying of the light, not the actual dying person raging, nobody has to rage except those who *won't* die. (Also, LOL. I have done much, much worse than bump off characters.)
