Oh my God. That was just so heart-wrenchingly beautiful. Wow. I almost feel like writing too much about it will take the power of it away.

I don't... I don't even know what to say. That was just perfect.

I'm real sucker for angst. Anything sad, angst-ridden and plain old sad and I will love it. And I loved this. Adored this. So much so that I know I am going to back and read this once I have finished reviewing.

Your descriptions are to die for. I could see everything in my mind. Every single thing, from the birds, to the cicadas to the ripples in the water and the image in my mind was so clear, it's insane. You did that. You're the writer. You put the words down, all I did was take them in. And it was beautiful.

This was really delicate. Stories that are set outside and make full use of the world outdoors in their descriptions always are. But this also had a sweetness to it. When I was reading it, I couldn't identify the sweetness at first. It was there. But it was so fragile that I was a bit confused as to why I thought that way. All the descriptions were there but there was this... feeling that lingered over the story.

And when you put that bit in the end after their wedding, I knew exactly what had happened. And at that point, I closed my eyes and I was hoping, wishing, praying that I was wrong. I wasn't. I was right.

And those last few paragraphs...

God...

They were so beautiful. Heart-wrenching, horribly sad, but absolutely beautiful. Just like the rest of this.

I hate that she died. I really do. They had such a lovely story together and it's amazing. You didn't even really go too far into their relationship. You only had a few flashbacks. But in just the space of a few thousand words, you had me fall in love with Western and Dory's story. And though I hate that she died, that bittersweetness just lifted this one-shot. I know it's horrible to think that way, but it's true.

The fact that she died and that Wes is still in their spot and he's just waiting and wishing, it's just... so sad. And I almost can't bear it. And I want to cry. But it's just so goddamn beautiful.

I don't want to change a thing. I know I must have used the word 'beautiful' a lot of times during this, but it's true. This was beautiful. And I absolutely adored every single word. I hope you did well in the challenge, you certainly deserve it!

Joop.
