Let me just first say...

That I don't cry over fics. I have NEVER cried over a fic I've read online. (Matthew saying with his dying breath that she'll always be his Anne-girl? Okay, SOB. But never to a fic online.)

I've been movied, saddened, impressed, shocked, amused...

I just read a fic that has me BAWLING. I am crying RIGHT NOW. Laughing while I am, because ohmygodSOLAME. But.

Trust me. Trust me. Oh my god, the fandom doesn't matter. TRUST ME. If you were moved by any relationship fic of any kind - of two people, strong, stalwart, fighting against all odds and believe me this fic is not as lame as me and my inability to TELL YOU OF ITS WONDERFULNESS...

And the bar has just been raised for me as a writer and I'll never make it, but it was awesome to see if cleared. Wow.

cherusha wins everything for finding it and telling me. you are never wrong, heart.

There have been many fics that have moved me to cry. IN the "OMG Eyes are bleeding" way, but tears nonetheless....

BWAH!

NO! No, this is not that kind. This is hurty - but slash, so most likely not your cup of tea. But it is SO DAMN GOOD.

*rests head on your shoulder* oh. Just... excellent. Transcends fandom. (I thought you would have posted by now, didn't mean to scoop you, tushie. And got the email, getting to it now!)

Ok. I'm trusting you because you are The Stoney One. I'm printing it out for a late-night read...

DUDE. Soooooo heart-breaking and has hot HOT scalding HOT smut, but is SO secondary to the character development and the relationship and ACHE.

I will be honest and say that the very first bit threw me - it's very choppy. But you get into a groove with her story telling and it's gorgeous. (Pirates of the Caribbean, but it DOES NOT MATTER.)

I do love the Pirates of the Caribbean (used to make fun of the badfic featuring some "she-pirate" with purple and blue eyes who stole Jack Sparrow's heart and was mightier than him in sea battle.)

And I love nothing more than really well-written stuff with amazing characterization. I shall read! *runs away*

It's a treasure, innit?
I have read it about a hundred times already, and it still makes me sniffle. Excellent writing skills, gorgeous structure and beautiful character development. Very clever fic, and moving and hot in all the right places.
Sadly, I fear this will never get finished...

I recommend to read her other PotC-stuff as well. It's not nearly as long, but if you have fallen for her writing-style then it is well worth the read, I reckon.

I don't think it will be finished, either, but it did end in a place that (narratively speaking) is satisfying. But then, I'll always take more if I can get it.

SPeaking of never being finished... *dives back in with scads of beta notes* :D

ANNE. Oh, god. Sooo good. It took me two hours to read, I kept going back over parts that were just minature powerhouses.

Excellent, excellent. And get a tissue.

Damn you! I've just spent *hours* reading that fic! Hours I really can't afford to have spent so frivolously.



Totally worth it. Thanks.
(And you will make it, because your fic mixes the comedy and drama, which I cannot get enough of and that one's pure unadulterated angst. Which is lovely really only in small doses)

It's fantastic, yeah? I'm still thinking about parts of it all this time later - always a sign of excellence.

(As for me - well, I do write the angst and so forth, as well, but wanted my first PotC fic to be the same tone as the movie. *cough* But I have another fic in the works that is the opposite of what I'm doing now. Thanks for the encouragement. :D )

okay. no. did she finish it? because the last time I read it (and yeah god let's not just break my heart, let's collapse my LUNGS while we're atit) it was still a WiP and I was traumatized.

Okay, there are 5 and a half parts - so technically, still WIP. BUT! It's obvious where it's headed, and I don't think I can bear to read the inevitable, oh GOD the heartbreak!

Cherusha discovered that the final chapter was lost on her harddrive (the writer's) and is now happily plugging away in My Chemical Romance fandom and has lost interest, woe.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
