Reactions & Reviews
Oh Jesus this is so good. PLEASE don't stop. I'm honestly dying on the edge of my seat. You are a very great writer- able to capture the main character's emotions while still focusing on the rest of them. I also wanna understand why Richie flipped out on Mike and stuff. And knowing fanfiction, I know this won't just be the end. So excited. :)
Omg this story is killing me, am so emotional right now, poor Eddie - he's suffered so much, I just want everything to work out for them :(
Your writing is epic by the way, you've written the characters in such a deep and complex way and everything feels so realistic and believable.IT was one of my favourite novels when I was younger but I've never read fanfic for it before - I really love what you've done with this; Eddie and Richie both feel really in character to me :)
- this is still one of my favorite fics, since I read it when I was new in the fandom and just excited and holy shit. UGHH I can't express how much I love this. There are no words. It's just... amazing. This fic is, like, a staple in the fandom. I will rec it to my grave. Eddie's inner voice is just flawless. He really feels like a teen becoming an adult. All his thoughts and feelings and his reactions are so spot on and incredible.
