Sorry for reviewing so late, but I need to let you know how great your writing is.

It made me cry and laugh. I read it while being super emotional and it caught me off guard. It reached every part of my heart, my brain and my soul and I'm thankful that you shared it. Because it made me feel sad and enabled me to dive deeper in my sadness - just to pull me out of it at the same time by knowing that I'm not alone with my feelings and through the little progress and healing that I can read in between your words and in the end of the story.

Sorry for this huddle, but I hope you get what I want to say: which is mainly thank you for sharing this awesome text <3

This was an amazing concept. Losing the ability to see colours when your soulmate dies. Just... wow. Needless to say it was also incredibly sad, but that's quite understandable with fics revolving around aftermath of Chester's passing. I wanted to hug Mike so much. And also I wanted to hug Anna. Because she deserves all our love for still suporting Mike, even after learning that he was all along in love with someone else, that he wasn't her soulmate, but Chester's. And I wanna hug Talinda because I feel so bad for her. It was obvious she loved Chester so much that she forgave him even admitting that he loves Mike. As someone already said - imagine how terrible it had to be for her when Chester died and she still saw normally. Until that, she could at least imagine, at least hope that she was the one Chester was soulmate with.

Just one thing I'm not sure I got right - you see colours all your life, so you cannot know whether you met your soulmate or not. You just assume it's the person you love and that loves you back, but you will never know, unless the person dies and you lose or not lose your colour vison?

Or is it that everyone is born without the ability to see colour and they gain it after they meet their soulmate? Though they may not realize who it was, like maybe if Mike met Anna and Ches around the same time so he couldn't know which one of them was the reason he gained the colour vision?

It's probably the former one, right? I'm just slightly confused by the Mike's and Kiiara's talk about hair dye before meeting the soulmate. If you read this review, could you let me know? :D Like reply with your own comment or send an email or something? Sorry to bother you but I'm just curious. :D

My favorite line: Chester isn’t a blank sheet or murky ink. He’s the roaring flames in the hearth, the sweet blush of cotton candy, the silver light cast by the moon at midnight.

This was so perfectly written. I think it captures the essence of Chester :)

And don't worry about ever posting something. Post it all! As long as you're comfortable with it, of course. You never know who it's going to help. This was hard to read at parts, which is true for me when it comes to all post-Chester stories. But it's still good. It's still healing in its own way, and I think that's part of the beauty of pieces like these.

Poor Mike. You really captured his anguish. And the bit about losing your ability to see color because his soulmate is gone is just....ugh. Wow, what a concept. And the line about "I feel so bad for Talinda never being able to see color again" ...so it's like a universal, everyone knows this is just how it is. So think of Talinda...Chester is gone and she still sees color. What a kick to the heart that would have been for her.

Sorry, rambling. It's just that I enjoyed this. Sad as it was, I enjoyed it just the same. Thank you for sharing it with us.

I left you a note on AO3, but wanted to say hi here too.

I'm glad you posted this. I have another chapter of mine that's going up today, too. I know we're supposed to be celebrating him, but... we can celebrate his life and miss him at the same time, right?

I love your writing and I think this is beautiful. <3
