- [Loving Can be a Heavy Cross] - "There's the "grand-daddy" of all "psychological" Doyle Get-'ems, "Loving Can Be A Heavy Cross." I loved that story, but I understand some people were upset by the ending, I wasn't — in fact, the ending was one of the parts I loved the best... " 
- [Loving Can be a Heavy Cross] - "But yes, the non-death story that makes me cry is the one where they really tried, and utterly failed, to make their relationship work, where reality thwarted them and their own fears won over their love. **sniff** I don't actually remember many stories *like* this, and the two or so I can think of off the top of my head are both Pros, and both M Fae's. Death stories absolutely make me cry, if they're well-written. (Just the *title* of "Loving Can Be A Heavy Cross" makes me whimper; that was lovely, sentimental OTT mush at its *best*.) It's the only death story that I wish had *stayed* a death story, instead of having been "fixed" at the publisher's request."
