Just In
for Obsessions

6/4 c1 Steph720
This story is beautifully written and tragic. I just read it 2 times in a row. It is so sad. I’d like to believe the call made was to his parents since that situation was mentioned with the word call and the other option didnt mention that. However if they are 48 hours into withdrawal they would probably do anything at all to get immediate relief of their symptoms. I hate not knowing what you decided for them or where they are over 12 years after you wrote this. The plate is a beautiful metaphor.

OMG, this story is so heartbreakingly perfect! Do you have any intention of expanding it? I'm Brazilian, and I'd like to know if you would let me translate this beautifull OS to Portuguese, with all credits to you, of course! Please, please, pretty pleaaaseee...!

I did not realise you had posted this; where have the weeks gone since I read it for you? I truly don't know. I am so sorry for that.

I felt it was a moving tale the first time I read it and that has not changed, in any way shape or form.

An awesome story, from an awesome lady.

I found you because I'm subscribed to a community for completed fics, and I'm glad I did! What a talented writer you are! I plan to read Premature Love next, but figured I'd check out one of your one-shots first, even though I don't read a lot of one-shots because I'm always left wanting more.

So, this wasn't an easy read, that's for sure. I wasn't sure what to expect when it started, and usually I'm pretty good at figuring out what's going on, but you kept me totally stumped till nearly the end on just what their obsession was!

This was such a sad story, and one that I'm sure happens a lot these days. It started so sweetly and ended so broken, and it broke my heart and brought tears to my eyes. What I found amazing throughout, though, was their utter devotion to one another, despite everything they went through. And I was happy you gave us that bit of EPOV at the end. His despair at what they'd become just about killed me.

Clearly, they loved one another obsessively, but I choose to think that call they made was to get help, not the other horrifying solution. I'd like to believe they got help and are now living a happy, sober, safe, and productive life. Perhaps using his inheritance to help others who are where they were? Yeah, I'd like to think that. Probably not realistic, but I'm a happily ever after kinda gal... Perhaps you'll consider adding another chapter on someday? I know I can imagine it, but I'd love to read what happened to them and where they ended up. See? That's why I don't usually read one-shots!

Great use of the prompt! You've definitely left this at that exact crossroads- do you fix it or throw it away? I'd like to hope they called the parents, but doubt it somehow.

Neither of them has shows any strength of character. they follow each other like lemmings from the cliff's edge.

So sad, but well done.

Cheers and good luck in the contest.

There's a really great, really awful movie about addiction. I wish I could remember the name! I've only seen bits, but the parts where the characters are at this level of dependence is heartbreaking. I'm left wondering who he called. The hopeful side says rehab, the realistic side says the dealer, because at that depth, generally the drug, the obsession, is loved above all other things including life. Nicely done. Thanks for sharing, and best of luck in the contest!

Wow, what a sad descent into a horrible life. I hope that call was to home. I like your writing style very much! Looking forward to reading more of your work.

Heartbreaking-they could have had everything, and threw it all away. I'd like to think Edward is going to call his parents, but I think the dealer is the more likely choice.
