Hi Lo!

Wow... this was heart-breaking. I really like the characters of Lucy and Molly II and I think they're underwritten in fanfiction, but reading them like this was really moving, and I don't think I've ever seen something similar in fanfiction.

I have to applaud you for handling such a sensitive topic in a sensitive way. It's something really difficult to write about, but I know it affects lots of lives and the way you dealt with it was brilliant.

My favourite thing about this was the fact that you focused on the relationship between the sisters in this story, rather than a romantic relationship - I think that added much more power to it. You weren't afraid to explore the jealousy, either, or the tensions that arise between siblings as they're growing up, and I think that made your story feel much more real and believable. That relationship is one that makes things like this harder to deal with, but the love that's there, the bond, I think makes it more important. It's sometimes even harder for siblings to have to see something like this, I think.

Ah, Percy shouting at Lucy isn't going to make things better at all, but he clearly can't see that - he's trying to scare her into realising what she's doing because he's scared himself. It's so sad.

Lucy's just fourteen and it's really heart-breaking that she's doing something like this to cope with the things she's dealing with. She's so young, but I'm glad that you didn't use her age to make it seem insignificant. The fact that she seems to be so pretty and popular is also really important - people always think that it's only the quieter people who deal with problems like these, but sometimes it can be those who are the most popular and lively - and that's why nobody realises anything's wrong.

The second person point of view was really effective here - it helped draw me in and made the story even more moving. It was so well written and touching that it could have been about someone I knew, my sibling.

I'm so glad that Lucy was able to open up to Molly, even though she asked her not to ask questions about it. That was brave of her and I think it shows the bond between them - and hope for the future as well, because she's admitted to a problem.

That last line - so poignant. I know exactly what Molly means with that and it's a horrible thought for her to have, but I think it's brilliant that you included it. It was a really moving note to end your story on.

This was a fantastic read! Well done again on writing so beautifully about something so sensitive.
