Very moving.

I really like this one Short. It kind of remind me of "Begin again"... because you go to a place we usually avoid and deal with the uncomfortable of the situation... and then you make it all worth it. Read this kind of thing it's hard and beautiful at the same time. You make it so good, that instead of just wanting to go to another story to lift me spirit, here I am, letting myself drown in Gilbert's mourning... Wonderful fic. You are amazing

I can understand Gilbert's reluctance to come over to Diana.

This was an interesting story.

That was both wrenching and beautiful. I almost wanted Diana to stay but she and Gilbert would never have been able to move past their grief is she did. Gilbert only turned a corner when he fed Joy himself.

This story moved me to tears...the grief is truly palpable. You are a very gifted writer.

Wow. You did something with the characters that I'd never have thought of, but still it came out true. You have a wonderful prose style, lucid and flowing and poetic.

Poor Gilbert and poor Joy. What will be about Anne ?

I've read this story a number of times by now, and you already know that I was moved by it. This time around I thought more about Diana and her loss, and about how nursing Joy was a form of healing. I thought about her grief, and how it intermingled with her childhood love for Gilbert - and also with her deep, abiding love for Anne. I thought about how Diana wanted to take Joy home with her, believing it was best for the child, but really it was also about her wanting to keep Anne close, to keep Anne alive in her world. I love that in Diana's and Gilbert's shared grief, they desire one another, and although they don't follow through, this desire allows them both to begin to heal. It's messy and ambiguous, as you say - to which I will add that it is also very beautiful.

Hi, I've always loved your stories so I was excited to see this pop up. I love AU stories and this was a twist I had never imagined. Beautifully written as always. Welcome home.

It's always a happy surprise to see an update from you. I was particularly excited to see you tackle this scenario because AHODs is probably one of my favorite books in the series, and this particular part is one of my favorites (since it's so heart wrenching and raw). So even if it's a twist on it, the raw emotion in it was breathtaking. I find as I grow older, I can re-explore these stories with a new appreciation for this part of their lives, and I love that you help us delve deeper than LMM's time would allow. Crossing my fingers that this isn't the end. Thank you for continuing to share your gift. :)

And anonymous reviews which criticise without justifying their opinions are unimaginative and cowardly. So we're even.

Stories in which authors kill off Anne are depressing and pointless...

Miss K, welcome back !

I know, I know, I've followed and favourited this new story of yours, way before I even got the chance to read it... It is only because I know that whatever story you write, I will always follow or favourite them, even if I didn't read it yet !

Another thing, I wouldn't have mind it at all, if you hadn't describe what the summary for this story was in the first place and at the beginning, I mean, I wouldn't have mind if you hadn't told us that it was a story of Anne having died while giving birth to Joy, because, the way you wrote the first part of this story, with just knowing that it is Gilbert that had got home, going straight to the nursery, finding the mother, his wife already there on the rocking chair, feeding their new little baby, without even mentioning the name of the woman yet, I would have still guess that it was Anne there nursing the baby. But then, you wrote the name Diana and her feeding Gil's girl...

In this story, I am so sad for Gilbert. He misses his wife so much, not only for her to feed Joy, but for Anne to also still be his wife, in every possible way, a thing that Diana cannot give him...

I am curious, now I want to know if you did end up reading elizasky's story ?

And, I really do hope and I can't wait for when you will be posting a new story again !
