Hi! Had been following this story on FF, checking in every now and then to see if you'd been able to update so am beyond delighted that you've decided to post it here. It's still a beautiful story even with the slight changes here and there. I really hope the RL is treating you and your family well and look forward to the next chapter, I know there are many more to come!
Best wishes, Nell

I love your stories and please know I appreciate you taking the time to post at other sites especially with your life so hectic right now. Please know my prayers are with you and yours. My son has Asperger's Syndrome and is considered very high functioning so I can only imagine your everyday life right now. Your family should always come first in everything and the rest of us need to realize that. Good luck and God speed.

They have much to learn from each other.....I am sincerely enjoying reading this again as you repost it here. This is one of the most lovely stories I have ever read and I fervently hope that you are able to finish it one day, despite all the difficulties in your life right now. All my best to you....

I'm glad to see you repost this beloved story here! It's been entirely too long since I've read it, so I'm very happy to welcome you to TWCSL with a new review of every chapter. I'll probablly comment on what pops out at me as I go along. I'm sure I'll notice tons of things I didn't before, now that I'm more familiar with the world you have revealed to us from having read your story before.
I love Rose's greeting of Emmett. :D I'm enjoying the foreshadowing that this society (or at very least community) is much more open and genuine about their feelings.
Bless Esme's tender heart. Her jesture is so telling that she understands where the scars on Bellas back have come from -- violence from those in positon of authority in her past life. I see her as taking on Bella as a daughter from this very first moment. And that Bella is sobbing, missing her mother and finally venting the overwhelming emotions from having her world totally turned on it's head. Love this moment in the story and it makes me want to weep with her. I identify with both Esme and Bella in this moment.
It occurs to me the bath is her baptism into this new life.
Once again, I do enjoy how you had him desensitize her to her prior experiences. That said, it's hard to have the ExB connection dampened by the very real dualistic feeling she has. Her body tells her one thing, her mind another, and her heart is caught in the tug of war and goes with survival. Her universe has been stood on it's ear and she doesn't know what to trust. I watched the Elizabeth Smart interview tonight, and think your Bella has a lot in common with her. Bella's husband is the (in this case) lawful kidnapper, and absolute abuser, and Edward is the overt kidnapper, but tender lover she should have had the first go round. Life is never the direct route it "should" be, and that is reflected in your powerful story. It is titilating, but like Bella we are conflicted. We are forced to thing and evaluate, and analyze. This is a good thing. Good things are many times difficult. And not straight forward. Sometimes that convoluted journey is what brings the greatest rewards, and I think that's exactly what you are after demonstrating in this story you have so generously shared with us. Thank-you!

I'm so happy to see that you are posting this lovely story here on TWCS. I am reading each chapter again as you post it and it is just as enticing and delightful the 2nd time around. So sorry you had to endure the purge of FFN's witchhunt.....So sorry your life is hard right now. I work as an assistant to a wonderful woman, a therapist, who works with autisitc children. I hope you can find some help and support in this area where you are.

I love this story on fanfiction.net. When I saw this I knew I had read it before. So I double checked my favorites but noticed that the other one was pulled down. I am really glad to see it's being posted on the site now. I hope that means they are new chapters coming soon. I can't wait for them!!!

Oh no! I can't believe this story got pulled, I love it so much and look forward to the updates. Thankfully someone linked me to this otherwise I wouldn't have known. I don't know what happened but I'm glad you're bringing it over here!

I hate what happened on fanfic but I love that I get to experience this story all over again as if for the first time. It was one of the first stories I ever read on Fanfic and because of it I decided to keep reading and found a wonderful world full of awesome stories...for FREE! Eeeeekkkkk!!! I love it so much and I can't believe I never commented before. I was very scared to do so...I'm still a little scared to leave comments but I have to tell you how much I love this story. I'm happy it found a new home where I know it won't be pulled. Please update the rest of the chapters when you can and know that I will comment on each one and even add more to it since I know what I'm doing now. LOL. HUGE HUG!!!
