I really enjoyed this one. I've never read this author and I'm a Jared girl so I really only tried this out because the summary mention saving Jared in it(I know.. shameless)and I liked the art. A lot.

I loved the rescue. It wasn't what I'd call action packed but the author does a beautiful job setting the scene, and tone of the story here. Giving us a good idea that Jensen's character either lost someone in a rescue or almost lost himself in one, with just a few well placed lines.

I reeally liked her style, scene setting was great throughout and I like smart writing that lets us fill in some details. I love the lost, sad tone she set through the story as Jensen worked through his demons.

Jared was full of life and everything Jensen needed without being a shallow fool that he gets written like occasionally when people are trying to capture the exuberence of his personality. I loved Jared.

I would have liked more about who blew up Jared's boat. It wasn't that it was left unfinished because it was tied up enough for me (and realisticaly all they'd probably ever really find out anyway)to not be angry about it. But I like my 'just desserts' and no one payed for that. Revenge minded nonnie here. Maybe she'll do a sequel. :D

I read the first part of this, then I had to stop. It's well written, but it deals with depression in a realistic and strongly evocative way.

So the first part of this is promising! I do like this author quite a bit so looking forward to the rest.

So this left me kinda cold. I normally like this author, but the fic was kinda meh. I don't think this was really my thing. It was well written, but I didn't really like it.

I remember reading it and really liking it. I recall thinking Jensen's headspace was very convincing and rather heartbreaking, but Jared's thoughts seemed harder to parse. He was just kinda there, impressing and seducing Jensen. I agree that this author has done much better, though.

Thinking back, I think I also felt that the relationship between the Js seemed really rushed. Based on how depressed Jensen was it seemed such a short time period for him to break out of it.

That I don't recall. I distinctly remember thinking the activism/explosives plot was a little odd, though, not in a bad way but just something that gave me pause when I was reading.

I don't remember the activism/explosives plot. I find that amusing.

Hah! That amuses me too. It was kinda the plotty bit where Jared is involved in activism re: saving marine life, I think, and some corporate dude blew up his boat to shut him up, leading to his almost drowning and meeting our intrepid lifeguard hero.

eta: captcha says 'itmenti Jensen'. What.

Aww, it's like a Greenpeace fusion! (The French government actually blew up their boat!)

In 1985 French spies blew up Greenpeace's boat.

This just reminded me of that. Obviously I am trying to boost the comment count.

I liked this one. It's not the kind of thing I'd want to read all the time; it was kind of quiet and sad, but it was really good.

There were several typos and SPaG errors that really stood out though; it could have used another read through probably.

The art is okay. I think the texture is too much. Also, one of the Jensen pics looks like it is actually Dean, and I believe the other is from My Bloody Valentine.
