Review:Singularity says:
I have to start by saying how much I admire how you've written this scene. I am ridiculously sentimental with a soft spot for overly dramatic, completely unrealistic, tearful good byes (*cough* see chapter 3 of Purpose and Priorities :P). So I love the way you've written this. The sentimental characters are a little bit sentimental, but not over the top, and the other characters roll their eyes at the sentimental ones. Completely realistic and very well done.

It reminded me a lot of high school and college graduation. When you all just kind of stand around and wonder what'll become of you all, and if you'll still be friends in five years. The uncertainty is even higher in their situation, but it's such a common theme, and you've written it beautifully.

I am so tempted to stop reading stories in this universe :P This is such a nice, happy place to end. I can skip merrily off and pretend that everyone lives happily ever after, become the godparents of each others kids, and stay friends forever. I know if I keep reading, something terrible is going to happen. Possibly several terrible things.

But you write so well, that I feel invested in the characters and want to know what happens. I want to see Molly and Arthur get married and start their family, so I know I'll continue.


Author's Response: Hehehe... I like a dramatic good-bye sometimes, but it doesn't feel right here. Everyone says goodbye in their own way, and Siobhan isn't at all sentimental so she's always the one in the back rolling her eyes.

Graduation/leaving ceremonies are funny things, because as a social construct they really are meant to give official status to a transition from one part of life to another, but often they wind up giving the effect you describe, of leaving everyone feeling like they don't entirely know what to do next.

Ah don't stop reading here! There's more in this story universe still, and I'd love to hear what you think :) Thank you so much for all the lovely reviews you've left for this story! I really appreciate it.
