Just In
for I'd Rather Hurt Than Feel Nothing At All

I'm a fan of your work from way back when I use to write for adult fanfiction... before that, even! Been gradually getting back into reading fanfiction again, and this is the first of your stories I've come across- naturally, very well done! I loved how you captured every moment of his struggle! Beautiful work as always, my dear! Hope you have a great day! :)

My do you keep doing this, ibshafer?! Your fascinating look into a very torn character is incredibly accurate to how Dave is probably feeling and reacting.
The endless of loop of emotion and responsibility of one's actions is deftly summarized here and, even though his thoughts CAN be argued, you've pointed out sooooo well how willing one truly has to be.

Remarkable. Just remarkable. You are very skilled at introspection.

Okay, I don't know what I love more...the fact that Dave refers to him as Dave the Destroyer of Gay Innocence, or the fact that you used the word "wiggins." I totally just had a Buffy flashback.

Love this! Made me sad, though. Poor Davey...

Beautiful. It was I loved it. It might sound mean, but I really like one sided Kurtofsky fics. This was great. Be very proud :)

I lvoe that you used that nickname. you should do it more often. it makes me smile :)

I really love Daves inner voice here. its amusing

and your interpretation of the second fromt eh promo is rather interesting. and it may be very sad but I like Daves mindset. he managed to deal even on his own. now his only real issue is Kurt. and the forever optimist in me knows that he will be able to deal with that one one day as well - either in getting over him or in getting him :) but he will

This was so sad, oh no I hope that doesn't happen on the show, but I have a feeling it will. I am like really praying that Dave has his chance to ask for forgiveness and hopefully change. I never thought I would fall in love with Dave's character but I did.

I love the idea that Dave was holding on to the guilt because without it, he'd have no connection to kurt. This chapter was beautiful. It makes me want to slow down, and not just throw a bunch of dialogue on a page, but to take a minute and really get inside their heads. This was sheer brilliance. Thank you for writing this. Even if it did make me cry a little, for Dave.

This was angst-ridden, and I want Dave to be happy. If the show goes for this version of Dave, I will be sad. Of course this was well written and interesting, I mean, duh, you wrote it...but I hope that we get a Dave who accepts himself more fully, and in less of a resigned way on the show. Now I'm wondering, *is* it better to hurt than to feel nothing at all? I'm not have made me think. Well done.

holy shit.

can something akin to this be in a voiceover with Dave? please? -probably won't happen, but shit-howdy, you sure know how to get into a character's head and write the hell out of it!

this might be one of your best yet, if only for this single point (note, i will paraphrase): "the guilt is the only thing linking him and Hummel."

-because i think this is honestly true. i think this is totally canon. this single point means almost everything, and i just LOVE how you handled it and everything else throughout this oneshot.

so: kudos, my dear... KUDOS.

Very good working your way into Dave's mind *_*

And I liked how you put the spoiler in it (which will hopefully be cleared next or the week after it...).

Wow this was really good! You really got into daves head. Keep up the good work.
