Loved this story!! I read it about 2 years ago and never had a chance to review. Clark and Chloe's struggles and pain became mine as well as I read it. I cried through the whole story. Thank you for sharing this; it was very well written and had me captivated from the very beginning! I just started the second one and can't wait to see where you take it.
Author's Response: Working on it, smneal! Thanks for commenting. :-)
WOW! This is pretty good. I've never seen anyone take on this version of a RedkSummer before. But to be honest I think your version was more likely then the others. Not to knock the others cause the ones have read have been great, but this one seems more likely though.
I'm glad you like it, ericasheron! I must admit, it's a very challenging story to write, which is why I'm taking my time with it to make sure it feels like it rings true, and the subject matter is so sensitive. But I'll get there eventually, and hopefully take all the characters to a satisfactory place by the end of it. :-)
Can't wait for your next update. I just KNOW the meeting between Chloe and Martha will be intense. She really is probably the only one Chloe could possibly confide in. Although the pesky 'Mom-to-my-rapist' thing might get in the way.
*grimaces* Yeah, I can see where that might be a tad difficult to work around! ;-)
Thanks so much for the lovely review!
Awesome praise indeed, Phoenix. Thank you very much! Highly appreciated. :-)
And yes, it's obvious most showrunners haven't a real clue about how to do justice to strong female characters. I don't think I'll ever forgive SV for sticking Chloe with Jimmy in Season 6, because that was the start of the character's decline for me.
I'm working on a ton of WIPs, but I'll get back to this one as soon as I can!
Once again, thanks for the brilliant review. :-)
Hi Mimi! Many thanks for your review. It's a very difficult story to write, no doubt about it, but I hope I can do a decent enough job with it and bring Chlark back to a good place after such a harrowing experience, and make it believable.
So glad you like it!
It's a very tough one for me to write, ladyalchemy, I won't lie. But I'll try and keep it interesting. There won't be an easy out for Clark, that's for sure.
Thanks for your kind comments. :-)
