So this is a secondary Master post since I can't figure out why the first one is acting funny.  *SIGH*

This is AMAZING!! You obviously have a strong connection to the subject matter and because of it I went on Dean's journey with him, very emotional, and perfect.

Okay, this isn't actually my comment post yet, because I only got to the beginning of chapter 4 when I had to leave for work this morning. However, I thought you should know I have been mentally pacing all day trying to speed up time just so I could get home and finish this story. I may have been a little distracted and irritable with my co-workers. I'm not sure they would have understood me if I had yelled at them, "Leave me alone, I need to finish my work so I can go home and finish gedry's story!" Off to read...

I've been saving this for a night when I had the time to properly enjoy it. I'm thinking tonight is that night. <3
*scurries off to read*

Wow! I really have no words to tell you how amazing is your fic,all character's descriptions,events and situations as well,even if I almost anything about addictions and recovery,your writing is so heartbreaking and touching that I couldn't stop reading,so now it's 1:00am and I have to work in a very few hours with too little sleep,and I have to tell you it's all your fault ;) so thanks a lot for so incredible work,now instead of going to bed I'm going to track you so I will read all your fics from now on (hope will be very soon,maybe some timestamp about this verse? I can dream, ok?) anyway,just wanted to encourage you to keep writing because I'm just a stranger from countreis away, but with your story you made me just feel,laugh,angst...so I hope this little comment can make you feel proud of you and your talent,because you've got it,believe me I read a lot of fics every day and I have no writing talent,so I really get yours ok?
So tracking now!

Thank you so much for reading and for your kind words. This story really means a great deal to me and I'm so happy that people are enjoying it as much as I have. I really appreciate the feedback so much!

I'm gearing up to ask for more prompts from people soon. If someone were to ask for something from this verse I would love to revisit it again. Thank you!

I saw this rec'd somewhere and I'm looking forward to digging in. Do you by chance have it in a downloadable version?

First of all, thank you SO much for supplying me with a single document of this - I spent several very enjoyable hours reading it tonight. What an incredible, wonderful,beautifully written piece. As a former employee of substance abuse programs and a member of Al-Anon and another 12 Step program, I can say that everything here really rang true for me. This story made me smile and made me tear up at bit at the end when Dean poured out his feelings to his father's gravestone.

I love how you really took us inside Dean's screwed up head at the beginning, and led us so carefully and thoroughly through his recovery process. Brava, my dear! I'll definitely be reccing this to others, and I look forward to reading more of your work!

No problem! I am so glad you enjoyed it! I'm also glad you think it close to factual. I worked hard to not glass it over too much. It's a very personal and important topic for me.

Thanks so much!!

Ive read this whole thing about three times before I made my livejournal. All of your writing is amassing and this piece in particular was breath taking! You captured more then I could ever think off! Truly you are a wonderful writer. :)

Thank you!

This is amazing. I've read more of your writings and I have too say, this one reminds me of my childhood. My dad was the same as John in this story and my brother and I went through so much because of him. Thank god our mother was sane and tried to make things work. My brother now has his own company and I'm studying medicine. So.. Thanks for the amazing read and for posting it!

Thank you so much for reading, and your wonderful comments.

Just wanted to leave a note that this story is amazing. I love you for writing it, for finishing it, for letting us read it. I think I may have actually learned a lot from it, and can possibly look at some things in a better light because of it.

Thank you so much! I'm very glad! *hugs*

Hi! I'd really like to read your fic, I saw you emailed it on requested and was hoping you'd also send to my email: gemina494@yahoo.com
I bookmarked this fic to read a long time ago but my internet time is very limited so...
Dec. 15th, 2011 01:41 am (UTC)
I'm sorry for the very late response to your request. I have had some significant personal issues but that really is no excuse. I'm very sorry. I have uploaded a PDF of this story. I hope this allows you to read it. This particular story was plagiarized on another site and because of that event I'm not willing to email stories any longer.

Not that I think you would do that, please don't read it that way. It was just a very painful experience.

Again I am so sorry for my late response.

So sorry about the linking. LOL this was written before I really understood how to use livejournal and I've always been meaning to go back to my older stuff and fix it up but have never taken the time. Thank you for reading!

This seems very brilliant, and the art is wonderful too.
Apr. 22nd, 2012 11:31 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much!

Mar. 3rd, 2013 04:58 pm (UTC)
