Oh my god! That was so chilling!!! Ah! Beautiful!

Just the depression of it all! I was hooked from the starting sentence! Wow. The ending was super open ended! Which played in your favour! I apologise in advance for the short length of my review, not to mention my terrible vocabulary!

The only thing that I would recommend is maybe more description towards the end. That was extend on the dreamlike quality of the fic. But, even without that, it was perfect.

Poor Hannah! I would have never expected her to lapse into depression! Wow.

She doesn't kill herself at the end, does she? Or does she end their relationship??

Once again! Congrats for completing your writers duel entry! :D And awesome job with this! I loved it! :D Sorry for the super short and probably unhelpful review though!!

Author's Response: ReeBee!!! Thank you so much! This was very helpful! I really appreciate people's opinion on my work!! Gahh! I don't have words, but this review has made me so happy!

I'm really pleased you enjoyed the open endedness of the story. I wanted it to be circular and perhaps show some of the harshness that people had to go through. I did want to create some hope, that the new years was going to mean new things for Hannah. That she coming to slow realizations that things need to change. Some of the things may include her relationship with Ernie which serves as a constant reminder of everything she's gone through. Perhaps she has to leave the one thing that she thought she could cling to in order to get better because that thing is keeping her in her own prison. If that makes sense. If she lets go, she's really letting herself be free. Also, perhaps she needs to rely on herself for strength rather than someone else.

She does not kill herself by the end of the story! Definitely not, though, i suppose, now that you've asked that, I can sort of see how you'd interpret it that way. I'm not fully against that interpretation either. That's what i really like about reading and writing is that the interpretation is all in the readers hands once the work get's published (whether on a website or an actual book). So, i'll leave it up to you what she does.

Anyway, before I got on more of a rant, i'll just end with a massive thank you for all your comments and for taking the time to review my story. I get what you're saying with the description in the end. I'll think about adding more, the only reason i kept it so short was because it was sort of reflecting the actual time countdown to new years (10, 9, 8, 7 etc) and i didn't want too much writing in-between that. I suppose i like the moments that are caught second by second. But it does seem imbalanced from the beginning to the end so i may rethink this.

Thank you so much for your comments once again!
