My oh-so-humble thoughts
Woo boy lovelies you are in for a ride with this one! I was on the edge of my metaphorical seat the entire way through this fic. It’s a rollercoaster for sure. I screamed with fear and joy-I cried tears of misery and joy….whoah that rhymed…

The entire story was fraught with peril (dude, I have ALWAYS wanted to say that!!!) and it never seemed to come from where you thought it was. Like I got sooooo confused sometimes with what was actually happening. But it’s not actually confusing, if you know what I mean. I was expecting one thing and got something completely different and it definitely threw me for a loop.

So yeah, it’s soooo worth the time investment to read it. At 56 chapters and over 400,000 words it’s a definite investment, but again-so worth it. So go and read and leave her some love!!!

Complete? no

My oh-so-humble thoughts
Holy motherfucking cock sucking douchebaggery of all that is holy!

That would be a direct quote as I’m reading. Yes, you read that right. I’m still not done with the published chapters. THAT is how good this freakin’ story is and how much I absolutely couldn’t wait to spotlight it. Yeah, the story itself is not done and I’m maybe ¾ of the way through.

This is so angsty…usually I can’t handle TOO much angst…and this one-holy motherfucker! I seriously was crying and laughing and having heart palpitations…Mr. Kelpie very nearly took my phone away from me. She just writes this heartbreaking and yet so painfully real…..drama! But it’s so perfect. I’m trying not to say too much cause, like always, I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys. But really, you NEED to read this. I totally understand if you want to wait until it’s done…I almost wish I would’ve noticed that it wasn’t complete…but it is really worth your time. I haven’t been able to stop. And I was crying-at the gym…they think I’m really weird there anyways so it wasn’t the biggest deal but yeah. She made me cry in public because I couldn’t stop reading this!

So yeah, if that’s not a glowing endorsement I don’t know what is. :) I plan on devouring as much as I can today and then I’m moving on to her other story, which I’m sure I will spotlight as well. And I maaaaaaaay be tempted to start begging her for more of this one…maybe. ;)

So go read and leave her some love. Thanks lovelies!
