Please write more.
It sure is a very sad story but it also is written so well. And I don't mind sitting in front of my Computer, crying like a little girl because there is a MCD.
Don't give up on this story, please.

There's only one review, wtf?
I have to applaud you again for the sheer realism with this. Grief is an achingly slow process. Although I personally haven't lost anyone close to me in that degree, I can understand every day, every minute, being torture.

When you said I'm being to nice to you... No, I'm not. You deserve it all :).
I know I've said this million times, but sometimes I wonder why I read this, because this is a killer. Most of the MCD-fics have only a glimpse of the actual dead and they very quickly either end or turn into a new start. The death is handled maybe delicantly, but rushed in a way like it would be too painful to dive into.
Can't blame it, though, because it is like that: so hard to handle in life. Breaking something so beautiful as the twins' connection must require very much strenght, but maybe it can be also healing in some way? Maybe that's why I'm reading this even if this is killing me?
I've never lost anyone really close to me, but I'vbe been thinking about it a lot lately, because my mother got hospitalized because of heart problems few weeks ago. She is back home already, but all of this makes it even harder - even scarier - to read this.
I keep this as my personal therapy, I guess. The slow progress, every detail of pain and struggle, grief and letting go being so there and processed.
Take that as an compliment. :)

You made me tear up - again. Honestly, something in this chapter was heartbreaking. I think after couple chapters of following Tom's process to understand went by with mostly curiosity and in attempts to understand, but now...
Something in a thought of Bill getting back home was so devastating. It was beautiful, bittersweet and awfully sad. It really hit me.
As well as how Tom just had top tell someone and how his grandma had always known.
Maybe the emotional impact came from relief and beauty, sadness too, yes, but there was something very beautiful, too.
Nicely written chapter, made my heart ache.
Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much for your review. You are really too nice to me.

I'd like you to know that this is frickin torture to read DX *bawls*
And yet it's so good that I cannot stop.
Author's Response: Aw, I am sorry! But, it does mean I am doing something right, right? ;) Thank you for your review!

*sigh* You leave me a heavy feeling in my chest, but I must say that it's so fascinating to follow Tom's grieving process. I feel like fumbling myself, too, when trying to UNDERSTAND.
So nice to see you updating again! It took me few days to review, but that's all good, becausae now I can wait for the next chapter already today... right? :)
Author's Response: *sigh* Your reviews make me smile ever time, haha. It's complicated, probably because I don't know how to react when you lose someone that close to you, but I'm doing my best. And Tom is such an confused soul!rnrnI will update every other day until this is complete now, so I posted one late Sunday/early Monday, depending on where you are. Then Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Monday etc. :)

This story never ceases to make me tear up. D: I really, really hope the twins never have to go through something like this. I hope someone will catch the killer within the next few chapters. I really loved the way you wrote Tom's emotions. This chapter was so touching. I can't wait for your next update. :D
Author's Response: Aw, that means I'm doing something right, right? Same here, I don't wish this for anyone. And thank you for that, I am really enjoying writing this side of him. Thank you so much for taking your time to review!

Melancholic, slow, unreal, blurry... TYhat's how i felt of the chapter. You do very, very good job on writing the emptiness, the wandering after loosing someone. Like there is no real way for Tom or Simone to actually live, but breathe, breathe, breathe in a foggy world, incomplete world... There is this certain slowlyness and minimalism on them that I like. This fic is always worth of the pain it causes.
I hope you visit to the hospital brings good news to you!
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm so nervous about this story, since I've never lost someone close to me at all, especially someone as close as the twins are. But, I really hope I'll be able to keep it up. Thank you so much!

Simone seems confused... and doesn't know how to cope. I feel like she's trying to help Tom, but Tom is too stubborn, and then she just cries.. she seems like she can't breathe. Idk, Simone seems very confused is all I can say.
Tom is obviously, really heart broken, but he also seems frustrated... :/ I like how he's always talking to Helena, but Tom.. Aw, it's just egh. I wondered from the beginning if Tom would ever try to find the person who dared to shoot his twin, and kill him.. I wondered, would Tom go after him? Would he get revenge..? Or just... live like that. I don't know.
Very nice chapter.
I hope all goes well with your visit to the hospital :|
I'll read your interview. :)
Author's Response: Yeah, she isn't taking this too well. It's also something more to it, which you'll find out later on in the story. I don't think Tom have realised what is going on, actually. We'll get more to that, and how Tom reacts on the shooter soon. Thank you so much! The hospital went well, though there will be a couple more of those visits. Thank you!
